Great product. We’ll crafted. I get a lot of complaints on it. I feel safer on the road. Three of my buddies who I ride with have purchased theirs.
The number of people who tell me it gets their attention is incredible. Who doesn't want to be more seen when riding! Best gift ever. Oh, charges easy, holds power on all day and clips on/off helmet easily.
The light works great and is noticed by all. The bikers that I ride with are very curious so I spread the word. One issue, though. I have the mounts on three helmets. Two are identical and have an odd shape in the back so after I put the mount on them I also applied some strong glue along the edges (just to be sure). The other, more normal helmet just got the mount which turned out to be a problem. Walking out of the house the mount fell off! I am so glad it happened there because if it had done this while riding the whole light would have been lost or at least damaged. I have since applied the glue like on the other two helmets and so far so good. I am considering drilling a small hole to the end so that I can wire or zip-tie it to the helmet for security. Maybe some more R&D on the mount would be worth pursuing. Overall a fantastic product with a weak mounting system.
Very easy to install and operate. Excellent instructions and video link (worth the time to watch). Mounts securely with a reassuring click. Don’t be afraid to snap it on and off once mount adhesive is fully cured. I bought extra mounts so swapping out with other helmets is easy. My wife wears it on her helmet when she is a passenger. The lights are quite conspicuous, even in the daylight hours (according to those who ride behind me). Observers have confirmed activation with normal breaking and even engine breaking. The power button takes some pressure to activate, a good design to prevent accidental on/off. I also like how it goes into sleep mode when helmet is off your head at a rest stop. It comes on again as soon as it detects movement. Overall, a very robust design that you don’t really think about once you switch it on before a ride. It gives me peace of mind to know it’s letting people know I’m slowing, even before I’m on the brakes. Excellent product!
IT WAS SUPER EASY TO INSTALL. I HAVE RIDEN A FEW TIMES USING IT. OTHER BIKERS SEE IT AND LOVE IT. THEY WANT TO KNOW HOW TO GET IT.
Bought 2 of these one for the wife and daughter, lets just say it was money well spent, they are short riders and the brake lights on their bikes are low to the ground, this provides a great deal of braking visibility, and folks are asking them all the time about the unit. Thank you for such a great product.
Works as advertised and is well worth the money for some added safety! Highly recommended!
The product is well made and was easy to mount to my Shoei helmet. One minor gripe is that I wish the power button had more tactile feedback. Great product!
On my very first ride, I notice following vehicles were backing off and giving a greater cushion for themselves and more importantly myself. I would have given it Five-Stars, but the on-off-mode switch is much too hard to operate. It is so aggravating that it has caused me, on occasion to just give up and not use the device!
With other similar products available I was concerned about price, but after a quick email to the team, I was convinced to try. I’m now on my second one. One for the bicycle and one for the motorcycle. One concern though is the adhesive. On my newest unit, on for a week or so, the unit fell off the helmet. Double face tape was still on the helmet, but the unit was on the ground. Hope it’s just a bad batch of tape.
Two of the most important safety objectives as a motorcycle rider is to see and to be seen. The Brake Free helmet braking light really helps with the latter as it lights up even if you're just engine braking with no front or rear brakes applied, alerting the vehicle behind you that you're slowing down. You can't have too many lights on a motorcycle and the addition of the Brake Free is the best light I've added!
Super bright and easy use keeping my son safe on his first motorcycle fast delivery with very accurate tracking
Brake light works better then what I was expecting it to work . Cars passing me would turn to see if my helmet had a integrated light built into it. Light can be seen both during the day time and night time , which gives me greater sense of security knowing that I will be seen by vehicles coming behind me.
Took a long ride today, felt more safe with the Brake Free attached to my helmet. Easy install and easy to program. LEDs are very bright. Will highly recommend this to any motorcycle rider who asks me about it.
Its such a great safety product specially for a new rider like me thank you so much
Been using this for a while now primarily for commuting/night rides in all weather it has held up well. Anything to get the cars to pay attention that a motorbike is on the road/lane is a great thing. I run the device with all the LEDs lit at night time and during the day I use the minimal mode (3). I run this on a icon Airflite and it fits with no issues. Look forward to next riding season full time with the brake free.
Ok, so far so good. I have it mounted but will take it out for the first time on Sunday. However, Now that I have it securely 'clicked in' to the glue structure unit on the back I can find no directions about how to get the light unit off the back of the helmet. Like how do you "unclick" it off the anchor piece...???? dudes! Any help would be appreciated: Phil Ball. email@example.com
Rode with a friend behind me and he thought before he saw it work that i had payed to much for it !! After he saw it work he got home and ordered one for himself!!! Now that he has one its the best thing since peanut butter! We go to as many local cruse nights as we can and allways show and tell them! People really are impressed with them. Thanks for making a great safety device!!
Fits half face helmet with a lot of space for adjusting mount up or down. It's works absolutely great as advertised. It's one gadget that you MUST have it if you ride motorcycle. Happy riding
It works great!
The brightness and algorithm work great. It mounted quite nicely on the back of my Icon Airform. The one thing I really don't like is that I've paid $150 for a device in 2021 and it has a micro USB port with no fast charging. Come-on guys, you could have shelled out the extra $1 per unit to reduce charge time and reduce the number of cables I need to have kicking around.
This is a great product, fits perfect my helmet and is slim enough so my helmet fits under my seat. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who rides!
I am very new to being a driver on a bike I've always been a passenger but I do love this it gives extra light behind me for drivers to notice I absolutely love it
This is a great tool if you are driving in no to low light levels. Even great for daytime driving. I drive 45 miles one way to work. I am seen so much better than not having one;, I purchased one for the wife and I. Well worth the money.
It’s lightweight and bright. Perfect to catch the attention of today’s driver
Looks great on my hi-vis Arai and was easy to install. Works as advertised and gets noticed. I believe in ATGATT and this light has become an important part of my gear. Very pleased.
The instructions are simple and easy to follow. Installing and using it is a breeze. My wife has followed me through traffic and states that I am much, much more visible, but "it doesn't look out of place." My guess is that we will start to see safety tech like this being built into helmets in the future as the technology becomes more ubiquitous. If you are on the fence about getting one, go for it. It's well worth the money.
Awesome product,, great value for the price. Safety 1st is priceless..
Great safety device and works as advertised. Fitment on the Shoei RF-1200 no problem even with the horizontal ridge on back of the helmet. No comments from anyone yet but drivers behind me seem to keep more distance. Like the fact I didn't have to mess with the wiring on the bike as needed with a brake light modulator. Some reviews have commented on the added weight on helmet but I don't notice it. If you prioritize safety and being more visible you won't be disappointed.
Easy to install and well-designed product. It just looks good. I had my son ride behind me when I first used it and he said it worked great. Very bright and easy-to-see. I feel like it provides an additional level of safety when I am on the motorcycle.
Does not fit my wife's helmet. I need a smaller and or taller radius. Her helmet has a small tight radius and your mounting clip will not conform to it. Any tips? Thank You Hugh Kelly
I don't know how they do it, but it works! Provides great light and visibility when generally riding, and it really lights up in a big way when I brake. Excellent product - highly recommended. Thanks!
This product changed what safety means when riding. I can clearly be seen braking, especially, when there are high profile vehicles behind me. Got a lot of thumps up from from drivers.
It's difficult for 4 or more wheeled vehicles with all the pillars around them to sometimes see us on two wheels. The more lighting we have the better and safer it is for us and a lot of sport bikes fall short of having enough rear lighting. This is where Brake Free comes to the rescue and it's not only a brake light but it's also a slow down brake light. I feel safer especially with vehicles behind me now. I don't know what the longevity of this product is especially since the battery isn't user replaceable and hope it lasts.
A great product that not only looks great, but makes a real difference in safety when you are out on the road. Since getting my motorcycle endorsement, I started really noticing how difficult it was to see many motorbikes while driving a car. Newer bikes have better, brighter LED taillights, but many bikes on the road have underpowered lights in the rear. And of course, normal brake lights don't illuminate during deceleration, engine braking, etc... The Brake Free takes care of all this and puts the light in a position that really grabs the attention of drivers. You will notice a difference in how cars around you behave when using the light! You obviously still must have situational awareness at all times when riding, but I feel so much safer knowing I have this product for increased visibility.

My son rode behind me on his bike and said he was ordering one tonight
Great product and is very bright and seems to keep automobiles off of my tail. Works as advertised.
I was actually looking at a competitor’s product first, but didn’t feel “sold”- I stated googling and found Brake Free and was so impressed with the brilliance of both the light and the creators on Shark Tank, I was immediately hooked! Speaking of immediate, it seemed I no sooner ordered, and it was delivered in no time. I ordered extra mounts and got them NEXT Day! The light is so responsive to kinetic change. Easy to install and charge. Super visible in the daytime as well! Everyone in my Sunday Morning Moto club loved it ! Thx Brake Free! I feel safer on the road!
Very impressed and pleased with this product. I definitely feel safer on roads with this light while riding. I have a 2019 Thruxton R with a New Rage Cycle LED rear fender eliminator kit which I love but made me worried i was sacrificing a bit too much in visibility/safety. Comes with premium packaging, quick delivery and easy / simple to install. Just read directions and plan ahead (Recommended 24 hour glue mount cure time). Highly recommend
Great safety light! I was recommended to getting this sure too the Ryker lights being so low that sometimes you wonder if they see you. Lights up very bright when you stop and when you down throttle. I highly recommended and super easy to put on the mount to the helmet and is very secure.
Easy install on the bottom part of my Shoei Neotec II helmet. Nice and bright! Just took a ride along the coast to/from Monterey. I was slowing down frequently for various things but not enough to hit the brakes but enough to activate the "warning" light. I'm convinced it does its job and is a helpful safety device. The number of drivers that are playing with their phones while driving is horrifying. Anything that catches their attention a fraction of a second earlier is welcome. Kudos to all those who conceived, developed, and brought this device to market.
Works well, has 3 settings for different scenarios, works super great all day but even more so at dusk and night! Doesn't go off everytime you move your head around which is great.
I'd heard about Brake Free but until a couple of weeks ago I'd never seen one in person. Perusing the website, I found all the information I needed and submitted my order. Your instructions on installation are concise and the unit was easy to programme, install to my Shoei RF1200 helmet, and turn on and off. Being a fairly new rider, I'm always on the lookout for good quality safety gear and the Brake Free unit exceeded my expectations. Other motorists have commented at stop lights how visible I am and that it's good to be able to see me and know when I'm braking and slowing. I'll definitely recommend Brake Free to my riding friends and so far, one of them has also purchased one. Thanks again ...
As a motorcycle safety instructor, I’m always up to try anything that increases safety and reduces risk when you ride. BrakeFree is an amazing product that fits the bill! On the first day I put it on my helmet, I was stopped three times by car and motorcycle riders to comment on how cool and impressed they were with seeing the light on my helmet. They knew I was slowing or stopping in advance and commented on its visibility. With BrakeFree, I can also see a change in driver behavior while I wear it when riding. Cars are increasing their distance behind me as I ride and are stopping further back (a good thing)—leaving me added space and maneuvering room. Hats off to the BrakeFree Team for putting together a great device that adds another layer of protection for your ride!
Works as advertised.
Received my order in a few days which was nice. Didn’t care for the extra charge to ensure it arrived, thats a scam for sure as Fed Ex and UPS packages are insured. Your start up instructions need to state to charge the unit BEFORE use and also describe how the unit acts when it’s in a low state of charge. My unit arrived barely charged and wouldn’t work properly. I had to contact you as the website wasn’t helpful. Other than that I like it, works very well. Your packaging is beautiful.
So far so good. Love how bright it is and that it can even be seen in the day. As of this time I highly recommend brake free brake light for safety while riding.
Great product. Performs exactly as advertised. Easy install. Very pleased. Highly recommended for all motorcyclists who share the road with automobiles.
saw the item on Shark Tank, looked like a good idea for son's birthday. Web site needs to be better--no place to log out, order confirmation confusing, site needs to have a line for customer's phone number so the company can call if there's an issue; e.g. three separate orders rather than one multiple-numbered order seems would be indicative of something amiss. Son seems to be glad to have received one of the lights.
Right out of the box, it was LOVE at first sight. Man is this bright. YOU WILL BE SEEN !!! Absolutely NO Doubt about it !!!
Love it! I bought this for my husband for his birthday. He commutes to work on his bike in the summer and it makes me feel so much better knowing that he's more visible to other drivers.
Great product! Easy to install and use, great for both day-time and night riding. I had my family ride behind me for 1 1/2 hours (during the day) and asked what they thought of the Brake free in action. They all agreed it was highly visible from short or long distances and did exactly what it is intended to do, make me visible! I can feel the Brake free unit on the helmet which is not a problem for me but something to be stated. Overall, a great product, fast shipping and a thank you email from the owner! Highly recommend Brake Free!
The unit was relatively easy to install after watching the installation video. It fit very well on my HJC helmet. I charged the unit fully, and played with the three modes. What seems to work best in daytime light is stealth mode, since drivers behind me suddenly see a bright light on my helmet as I'm slowing down. At night, I will try the solid and flashing modes to enhance my visibility to drivers behind me. I'm impressed with the quality of the workmanship, ease of installation and use, and, most importantly, the increased feeling that I'm more visible to those behind me. As a former MSF instructor, I've always believed and taught that anything the rider can do to increase his/her visibility to others is worth the expense.
Feel much safer on the road and I don't have to kill my brakes doing so.
I first saw a Brake Free in action on a rider ahead of me in heavy traffic. The rider was at least 2 blocks ahead of me and I immediately wanted to know what it was. I was intrigued as it was obviously on their helmet, up high above other cars and it flashed intensely when the rider appeared to slow down or brake. I eventually caught up to that rider at an intersection, and though I never got a chance to talk to them, I memorized the shape and pattern I saw, then Googled for "motorcycle helmet brake light" which brought me to this website. I read everything on this site, watched all the videos, read all the reviews, and then quickly bought one. I couldn't be more pleased. My riding buddies tell me it doesn't seem to come on prematurely, but only when decelerating and/or braking, and it's bright when triggered. I notice that other vehicles stay back further than before and I really can't feel the extra weight on the back of my helmet. My only complaint is it is rather hard to turn it on or off behind your head. The button could be larger and offer more positive feel it has been activated. I just turn it on before putting on my helmet and remember to turn it off after taking my helmet off. Bought extra mounts for other helmets. Currently on the back of my modular Schuberth.
The only complaint I have the on/off button is extremely hard to turn the unit on or off I've read reviews that stated this but thought it can't be that bad I was wrong
Enriched my marriage! My wife says she pays more attention to me because of this light. Seriously, a brilliant safety tool that will serve you well. Great design through and through!
Have had other units and nothing compares to my brake free.it works like as advertised on my Emo Kamen E bike/electric low speed motorcycle.fits my modular helmet perfectly.
Works as advertised. Light weight, super bright LEDs and gets the attention of drivers. A great safety upgrade!
Works very well. Is brighter than the stock running/brake lights on my moto. Dad followed me around and said it works perfectly and now he wants one too!
I've only ridden once since purchasing the Brake Free product. Although I couldn't see if it worked, I felt confident that it did. I have a 3 day trip coming up and I feel sure that it will help to keep me safe.
Worked as promised. Fantastic!
Easy to install. Felt so much safer just knowing t was there!
I absolutely LOVE my Brake Free! The personal service I received was the best experience I’ve had in a long time. I am glad I patiently waited for this excellent product to be available and delivered in Canada. I will encourage all I know to purchase. I wear an XS Shoei RF-1200 Incision helmet and it fits perfectly. The picture looks like a big smile!
Great idea and works as promised. Just bought another one for my son; can never be too safe.
I haven’t actually used it yet, but just playing with it it’s a great product and seems to work exactly as advertised. If I need another I will definitely buy one.
A guy in a pickup stopped next to me and said, “That's an awesome helmet! Where can I get that?!” I asked, “Are you talking about the helmet or the light?”. “The light”, he said. That’s when I told him it was from Brake Free and that I saw it on Shark Tank. “Thanks so much man. I’m gonna get it!”, he said. Yeah!!!
The lights is super bright! Easy to use ! I feel safe knowing the light is there! Awesome product! Will recommend it to friends and family!
My husband and I started riding motorcycles again after a 23 year hiatus during which we ran a seasonal summer business in Alaska. We didn't get a chance to ride because the seasons overlapped. We are now riding again. I have taken a couple of riding courses to get my skills back, but I am older and technology has gone a long way since we bought our cafe in 1997! There was no texting back then and I am very concerned about inattentiveness in today's world. Having the Break-Free light on my helmet makes me feel so much more visible. My husband says it really stands out! Thank you.
Again I’m still interested to be a dealer or distributor of your product here in my countr the Philippines , Wrote brakefree before of my interest last year. Stay safe and healthy
It’s just SO perfect. The height of the lights on my helmet, the brightness, the unique, attention getting lighting. Very, VERY happy
Additional visibility for drivers. A friend drove behind me and thought it made much easier to see. Good product.
Easy to install and good battery life. Makes me a lot more visible to traffic approaching from rear.
Too heavy for helmet due to neck cancer so I put it on the back of the bikes fender Works great no one gets near me now Have .had three lost one from helmet but the other is on my sons helmet KEEP UP THE EXCELLANT WORK
Easily fit on my LS2 helmet and a 3/4 helmet with additional mounts. Mounting feels solid. Brake light comes on quickly even with a short braking distance as shown in other videos. Very bright. Works well enough that I'm going to try it on my bicycle helmet too.
The Brake Free light is excellent! As designed it is a huge safety upgrade for any rider. It mounts perfectly on both of my helmets. I use it on my motorcycle and on my electric scooters. It is clear, bright and works perfectly as advertised.
I decided to buy the Brake Free Light for my nephew after seeing it presented and demonstrated on Shark Tank. One of my other nephews had an extremely serious motorcycle accident a few years ago. He had a clavicle fracture and essentially his entire right leg had several fractures, requiring several surgeries, three weeks in the hospital and several months of physical therapy. He eventually bought another motorcycle, but decided to sell it last year. So, because of his accident, I bought a Brake Free Light for his brother, who still rides a motorcycle and does a lot of snowmobiling as well. I have peace of mind that using the Brake Free Light will keep him safer and help prevent any potential accidents. I'm so grateful for the founders/inventors of Brake Free Light for developing such a wonderful product that can save lives!
This is a great safety feature, and it makes me happy knowing my boo is as safe as possible when he rides.
I was a little unsure about this device, but once I was able to start using it, I was very happy with the results! It is easy to install, high-quality materials, and the LEDs are bright and definitely a bonus when riding. I would definitely recommend the Brake Free Light to fellow riders!
I went for my first group ride with the Brakefree installed on my helmet. The comments from the riders behind me were that they really liked the way it worked, some said they were envious.
This company is one of the best customer focused companies I had the pleasure to deal with. I asked several questions and they responded almost immediately. The product is a great safely feature for motorcyclists.
Really impressed with the accuracy and ease if use. Really will help to keep me safer. Only complaint is the button is super hard to press, especially with gloves.
Great safety feature! I recently used this on a long (500 mile each way trip) and had many people comment on it. Even ok the setting where it's on the entire time and gets brighter with breaking, it lasted over 8 hours! It is a little bulky, but doesn't add much weight to the helmet at all. Must have for increased visibility.
Build quality is great. It detects braking quite well and definitely has improved my visibility. I’ve noticed drivers leaving more distance between us, especially when when slowing down/at red lights. I’d highly recommend!
This was my fifth Break Free system. One was for me (over 50 years of motorcycle riding). The other four have been given as gifts to my sons and friends! I think that says it all. Bill from Arizona.
I got it for my husband and it works great i feel so much better knowing people behind him can see him better
Great technology. Easy to install and very visible even in direct sunlight. Very happy with the product.
Wanted to wait a while to write a review, it definitely does what it says and works great. Super bright and responsive. My only small gripe is with the locking mechanism to the helmet. With the helmets I own, when the light is locked on to the helmet, there was still a little “play” in the attachment piece and the light. You could move the light slightly in a rattling type of way which made me wonder if it would be noticeable when riding and hitting bumps. Can’t say I definitely noticed when riding, but wanted it to to be completely secure. What I did to remedy this was attach two of those felt “furniture slider” pads to each side of the underside of the light. It still locks into place, but softly cushions the gap between the light and curvature of the helmet so there is zero play/rattle.
Love it! Works exactly as advertised. I use modulator mode and have noticed drivers are now not as close as when I didn't have the unit. Every rider should have one.
Really appreciate this hi-viz helmet safety lighting system! I've been complimented by a couple of motorists in parking lots who told me they noticed my "lights" flashing at the stop light. Instructions were easy to follow. I will wear on my Shoei Neotec I modular helmet (in pic) or on my full face Shoei RF-1200 helmet. Also will add a mount to my wife's Schuberth C3 Lite Helmet. Very happy and received it shortly after I order. Keep at it Alex and Brake Free team!
I use this when out on a onewheel. It's so responsive and noticeable when you can hear cars slowing behind you. Excellent product!
The brightest light out there according to other riders following behind. Works as advertised.
Fits the "Bell" revolver EOV, perfectly
Absolutely a must have. Works flawlessly and I have no idea it's even there. Really nice to have piece of mind. Well done fellas.
Brake Free is one of the best safety accessories I've purchased. Easy to install and maintain; just charge periodically and keep it ready for riding. One thing I like most is the fact that it will indicate any slowdown to the vehicle/s behind; that alone is just awesome! The LEDs are bright and seem to be high quality with no issues on build or materials. I've tested the waterproofing on numerous wet rides and the battery life is as advertised. I would advise any who is looking for a helmet light to seriously consider Brake Free, it's a great value. Take it from a well-informed buyer there are few options like this on the market. Safe riding! - Kev
Fantastic product, always get lots of compliments and questions and I send them to your website. Easy install with added visibility. Win / win. Love it, and will evangelize it to every rider I know!
Good concept, additional bright red flashing light coming from back of helmet to alert following drivers of your presence and fact you are slowing down. IT WORKS as promised. Prompt delivery, easy installation.....would buy again and recommend this excellent product to other people who ride on public roads with helmet.
Looks good. I like the visibility to the car behind me. Only negative was the on/off switch is hard to operate. I would recommend this light.
BE SEEN TO BE SAFE
Brake Free is the brightest smart, high visibility helmet accessory with built-in wireless brake detection.
