Travel Tech: Airstream Partners With Dallas-based Lighting Startup

HEADSPIN Outdoor's adaptable lighting device can be used as a flashlight, headlamp, or rail mount for bicycles, boats, and ATVs.

Airstream, maker of the “silver bullet” trailer, announced a partnership with Dallas-based HEADSPIN Outdoors to promote HEADSPIN’s flashlight-plus lighting product through its Airstream Supply Company Division.

HEADSPIN’s solution couples a light unit with a rechargeable cube-shaped power device, which uses accessory mounts to create a flashlight, headlamp, or rail mount for bicycles, boats, and ATVs. The device also magnetically connects to metal surfaces to become an adaptable task light.

“We’re always on the lookout for products that are adventure-ready and embody Airstream’s dedication to quality craftsmanship,” Mollie Hansen, Airstream’s chief marketing officer, said in a statement. “With HEADSPIN, you have a product that proves its worth straight out of the box, and we’re excited to give our Airstream community access to such a unique and useful tool. Here’s to never hitching or unhitching in the dark again.”

This collaboration “makes perfect sense,” according to Chris Grider, founder of HEADSPIN, adding that the company is honored to “inspire adventure alongside such a renowned, iconic company.”

The goal behind HEADSPIN’s lighting product was “well-designed and thoughtful simplicity” to help campers, hunters, and fishers avoid having to pack multiple lights. The lighting product weighs two ounces with four intensity settings, spot/flood, and a flash mode. It includes rechargeable lithium-ion batteries with 40 hours of continuous use, tested to withstand a two-meter drop, and has an IP66 weather-resistance rating, according to a statement. 

“We wanted to cut down on the decision-making process, reduce the clutter, and develop a streamlined lighting solution. HEADSPIN is a rechargeable and versatile lighting product that we can conveniently grab and go,” said Grider. “There are plenty of bright rechargeable lights and plenty that hold a charge for a long time. None do both and match the versatility of HEADSPIN, making it the perfect companion for Airstream customers.”

Airstream is the longest-tenured recreational vehicle manufacturer in the world. Its Airstream Supply Company division was created to supply customers with adventure gear, apparel, and products.
