Bodylite founder, Padraic George
I am from County Carlow in the south east of Ireland. I am a runner and a father of three young children. During autumn and winter daylight running opportunities are hard to get, so running during low light was becoming very frequent. One night while out running at night with a headlamp, I decided that I had enough of this, I wanted a proper running light as this short term fix wasn’t going to keep me on the road running consistently for long. I wanted a light designed specifically for running. I wanted a product that had a strong light at the front, focused on the ground in front of me, lights at the back to keep me safe and with storage for phones/music etc. There was no product like this on the market, so I began prototyping and testing during the winter of 2013 up until 2016. Bodylite gives me comfort and confidence so that I could go running on the road no matter what the time of day is, I’m delighted with it.
