You might feel indestructible, zipping through the congested urban streets on your badass custom bike. Despite these feelings, you are the prey of the road. When it comes to an altercation with a car or even worse—a truck, you’re in trouble. The driver of the car will probably walk away proclaiming that he didn’t see you while you will surely be in for a trip to the ER—if you are lucky.
Many animals are genetically engineered to blend into their surroundings as it helps them survive. While that is fine for wild animals, invisibility makes motorcycle riders more vulnerable. Without something to make us visible to drivers, we then become little more than hapless prey waiting to be taken out by a large truck.
Smart riders have discovered that doing something to draw attention to themselves will help them avoid being prey. One of the best things on the market right now to improve motorcycle visibility is the BrakeFree Motorcycle Helmet.
The BrakeFree Light is a LED helmet brake light that always stays on. It mounts on the back of your helmet and is held in place by super magnetic snap mounts. This light is completely wireless. There are no annoying wires to get tangled and nothing to connect to your bike’s electronics. It does not require a sensor on your brakes or an app to use.
The 2600 mAh high-capacity rechargeable Lithium-ion battery provides enough power to keep the helmet light on for eight or more hours on a single charge. The battery can be recharged in two hours with an included Micro USB cable.
One of the best features of this helmet light is that has an onboard 3D accelerometer and 3D gyrometer sensors. This detects when you are slowing down. As soon as the sensor detects a reduction in speed, the LED brightens up, which will help other drivers see you.
