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.
I mounted this on the back of my helmet, no noticeable weight addition, tested it like most do by just moving the helmet and then stopping...had another rider follow me to confirm that it actually works and it works well enough that the other rider id considering making a purchase. I will say that the only FYI that I will give is if your like me and listen to music thru your helmet, don't bang your head, bob your head or nod your head to the music as it will trigger the Brake Free light.
I love this thing for several reasons. It works independently of the motorcycle, which means no wiring, it works on any bike I'm on, it works while engine braking, and if I'm stopped and I see someone coming up behind me, I can not my head to make it flash. It's brighter than the tail lights and brake lights on any of my bikes. Easy to charge, and has early warning for a low battery. I get lots of compliments, which means it gets noticed! I first bought one for myself, but after using it, I get another one for my wife to use whether she's a passenger with me, or riding her own bike. Even though I would (and do) recommend this to anyone--just as it is, there are a couple of things (one in particular) that I'd love to see changed. Better mounting system. It's just a little bit wobbly when it's mounted, and I don't know, but I wonder if removing and replacing it frequently might make loosen it even more. (For this reason, I don't remove it at all, even when I charge it.) Better charging access door. I find it very difficult to completely close the door that the charging cord plugs into. Since I doubt that it's sealed, I've considered the idea of removing it completely, but I probably won't. To reiterate, even with these two issues, I would not, and do not hesitate to recommend this to anyone. In fact, several who I know of have purchased one for themselves after seeing mine. I have to tip my lid to the designers of this thing. GREAT job, guys! Thank you!
I love it and i will buy another one if i damage mine.
Brakefree has been a total game changer for me. Highly visible during full sun riding. People in traffic give me the thumbs up as a testament to its daytime visibility. At night it increases rider visibility by at least 300%. Order extra helmet mounts with your original order because you will wont to ride with it all the time.
It works as advertised, appears to be well made and I’m satisfied with the purchase BUT, I ride a naked bike and it’s effect on the airflow over the helmet is noticeable and at times distracting.
This fits great on my half-helmet and makes me much more visible, not only to other vehicles but also when I’m leading a ride. I love that I can remove the light and snap it on my full helmet as well.
i purchased this after trying a competitors model. the other one was complex, had to have a app and didn't work very well. my wife saw yours on shark tank. it's simple, effective, and works. just got back from deals gap/tail of the dragon. you made me a believer! great job!
It has improved my road visibility immensely. Drivers pay attention when I’m down shifting. It’s especially effective at night. My only negative is that it was slightly heavier than i had expected but the pros totally out weigh the one con.
Heavier than I expected, but I got used to it quickly. Survived a 5' drop without damage.
Works great, one suggestion, when in emergency stop mode have it flash 3 or 4 times before solid --It seems expensive, but worth every penny.
Before charging this unit I noticed that the max charging rate is 1 Amp. my smart phone adapter output is 1.9 amps will this damage the battery in anyway? Also the on and off switch has to be pushed very hard to turn the unit on and off, is this normal? Reply requested Thanks My e-mail is email@example.com.
I am impressed with the quality of this product. I looks and feels durable. The light is very bright and I am sure it has increased my riding visibility to drivers behind me. It is a worthy purchase.
The light was very easy to mount and operate. It is difficult to rate how well it works other than the fact that I haven’t been rear ended! So far, so good!
I do a lot of long-distance riding (25,000 plus/year). I have a constant fear of being run over from behind. And if it’s a cage versus a motorcycle, guess who loses? This brake light puts the back of my helmet directly within the following drivers line of sight. It takes one more excuse away.
I ride often, 6 days a week. Cagers notice the unit when I am riding in traffic they stay off my 6.
Love this product I bought for my husband! I feel he is much safer on his bike and with helping others know he is there. Thank you!!
Got it for my husband for his birthday. Very bright. And the template that was included was a brilliant idea. Most excellent product.

What a brilliant idea, I think that's where I need to start. Product is lightweight and BRIGHT. Reading about BrakeFree made me slap my forehead with how simple but necessary this accessory is for anyone interested in riding at night. I can't tell the light is on my helmet (Icon Variant Pro) while in use.
I've bought 3 of these units so far. This one I bought for my friend in Florida. Its on his helmet. I'm buying one for my son next. It's a great safety device to help you be seen from all the distracted drivers out there.
Super intuitive, this light is the bomb.
I feel way more seen!
I mounted my Brake Free on my new Shoei RF 1400. They made this helmet curved in down by the neckline where I would have preferred to mount it, like the instructions recommend. So even though it’s angled up only the top row of lights isn’t visible. The rest are, so it’s pretty bright for drivers behind. I contacted Brake Free about it, since this is going to be a popular helmet. Within a couple of hours they wrote back saying there is a neat moldable glue product that is used for mounting Go-Pro type cameras on helmets that works good that I could try and mount it lower, and reading the link they sent me it looks impressive. For now I am going to leave it as is. I had my wife video me as I rode by her and it looks highly visible. I was impressed on the fast and free shipping, and the fast answer to my question. I can’t tell any weight difference with it on. So I am happy so far with it. Cars in my mirrors seem to be back farther than before when at intersections and stop lights. Yay for that!
I couldn’t get the clip to hug the contour of the back of my bell helmet and was afraid it the whole gadget might come off while I’m riding, so l reapplied it by using 3M primer 94 I applied it to the clip before the double face tape and on the helmet as well
A really clever wake-up for the distracted driver behind you. It's easy to install, it can be used with multiple helmets, and reasonably priced. Thanks guys, who knows how many mishaps you'll prevent.
Always looking for ways to be better seen while riding and especially while decelerating. This product is absolutely perfect for that! Can't even tell its on the helmet from a weight perspective and on top of it all, it looks cool! completely recommend!
I love it great invention I feel more safer on my motorcycle.It’s nice an bright fantastic product.Thanks so much.
Bought it for the motorcycle and love it so much we use it on the tandem bicycle too!
Well worth the money for daytime and nighttime riding. This product definitely gets you noticed while riding. I've had it a week now and it holds a nice charge (I have yet to charge it after 7 hours of riding and it's still between 35%-70% charged). I've had 3 people ask me where I purchased the Brake Free Smart Light.
I just bought my second light - one for my son since I love mine so much.
"Brake"-through technology and application for all people on the move! Love it and makes me feel much safer. Everyone should have one of these! Thank you
Nicholas J G.
Great product with very minor complaints (full manual is online, but no reference made to it in Quick Guide, so have to go to website// full manual doesn't show how to detach the unit, so you are left flipping back and forth between two documents). I test ran it with a friend chasing me and works as promised. Great product.
Love this thing! Sleek, simple and works extremely well. Going to order one for my wife.
Much brighter than expected and was questioning the security of the 3m pad, but the thing STICKS. Uses motion tech to detect whenever you slow down so its like a wireless additional third brake light you see on cars. Very visible to everyone on the road, so you can ride safe, especially at night.
It was easy to put on my helmet. I've only had a couple of weeks to use the product. As I wear it on the back of my head it's hard to determine the effectiveness of the product. I've not had any comments by other drivers. Honestly, my biggest fear riding these days is get run over by someone behind me. Any additional ways to show others that I'm slowing down is great as often times I simply decelerate and or down shift to slow down. Still alive and riding!!
Saw this in the BMW Mag. Ordered 4, one for me and one for each of my sons. I think this is a great new safety device.
This is an excellent piece of safety equipment. Being placed on the back of my helmet makes it easier for other drivers especially automobile drivers to see me when I am braking since it is close to eye level while in a car. It's much easier to see than the usual single tail/brake light on most motorcycles that sets closer to the ground and is harder to see. Plus the different moods allows me the option of selecting a mood that flashes, alerting drivers behind me that I am slowing and or preparing to stop. When I first installed it to the back of my helmet I was concerned at first that the added weight would be quite noticeable and uncomfortable, but to my surprise I really didn't notice much of a difference while I was wearing my helmet. I am very pleased with the brakefreetech product. Thank you...
I just used Brake Free for the first time and felt a greater margin of safety when I left the driveway and headed for a ride along the Ocean Shore. (Love the Brake Free) My wife also commented on how she likes the added visibility as I braked at the end of our driveway. I just might be your oldest user. I have been riding for 64 years and the Brake Free provides an extra measure of awareness for other vehicles. This is a fantastic product for bikers. My bike is a 2004 Honda VTX1300 Cruiser which is fantastic for cruising the mountains and shores of Maine... Brake Free is a fantastic add to the journey...
Riding with my Brake Free gives me the confidence to know I have that extra bit of safety by being seen in the road. At stopped traffic lights drivers have pulled along side and have asked where I purchased the device. All comments have been very favorable!
Bought this for my brother after seeing it on a Shark Tank rerun. He loves it. It's bright and easybtobise and charge.
The Brake Free is well built and does exactly what it says. I really like it. My riding partner had some feedback, since he is the one who can look at it operating while I ride. He thought it would be helpful if the light stayed at high intensity once we are at a stop, just like a wired brake light. Then, as the motorcycle accelerates, the light could resume normal operation. I was not expecting it to operate exactly like a wired brake light, but I understand his point. If you added that as a mode, it might be a useful option to have.
This is one of the coolest products I have ever purchased. It is such an incredible product. It works flawlessly and looks excellent! I feel like the added safety I will have is priceless. I would have spent 3 times the price knowing how well it is made and how well it works. It am a tech guy and a safety guy. I absolutely love this brake light and I am so happy I found it! So is my wife and daughter!
Pretty amazing technology. High visibility. Just wish that tiny little actuation button on top was larger and easier to access and operate. My only complaint.
Easy installation, doesn't affect the balance of the helmet, very bright. We got two and are pleased.
I feel more confident riding with the BrakeFree light on my helmet. Maybe it is my imagination but I have not had anyone tailgate me or come up on me quickly when riding, cars maintain a respectful distance. Nice bright light. This was a great idea, thank you! I have told my womens riding group, Women in the Wind about this great device so you may be hearing from our president. Thanks again!!
Like being safer!!!
Well, seeing as though it's behind your head it's kinda hard to see it in FULL action, but it seems to work fine in hand. My shipping took a little longer than expected due to a mix up, but it arrived well packaged when it did. Haven't had any issues with it so far and if it offers even an ounce of extra protection or visibility then it's well worth it!
Paula A D.
I love it- wearing probably too much black clothing helped my decision for this purchase. Striving to get as much visibility as possible is key! Having it mounted on the helmet- this placement, I believe, is more in the “line of sight” for drivers. Safety first!
Very easy to install on the Helmet , it is really a Attention Getter in Eye Level Height like a 3rd Brake light on a Car with a great visibility to the back and sideways like 180 Degree's too ! Visibility Range is at least 2000 Ft under clear Conditions ! Battery Life is great too in Excess of 14 Hours ! I feel much safer now with the Brake Free Light and it is Money well spend !
Wish it easier to clip in and off. Also wish you would include a couple more clips for other helmets.
I have not had a chance to use the Brake Free on my bike. But, I was silly with it, put it on my helmet and kind of moved the helmet forward and backward in front of me and it lit up just like they said it should. In fact, as I put it down to take the picture of it, I activated it by moving it forward/letting it fall forward fast enough to activate it and nearly blinded myself. This product will get you seen and allow you to coast clutch in safely. It's a minimal investment in your safety and an incredible piece of tech.
Love this product. I've bought two for my wife and I. I'm buying 2 more for my son and best friend.
Very good invention for a motorcycle rider like myself. Keep up the good work!
A must addition to your riding gear. Riding partners say visibility while cruising and braking increases exponentially. Light weight, can't tell its on. Easy to install and use. Wish I had invented this!
A truly remarkable engineering. No more panicking on downshifts, and the brightness of the lights is extremely comforting. Thank you all at Brake Free for a joyful experience.
I saw the Brake Free Light on Shark Tank and immediately thought that it was a great innovation for cyclist safety. I stopped riding nearly 50 years ago because I lost several friends in cycling accidents. The Brake Free Light probably would have saved a few of them as they were rear-ended. My son rides and I actually purchased it for him. He has told me that it works well. It certainly makes me feel more comfortable knowing that he has an additional safety feature on his side. I would highly recommend the Brake Free Light to anyone who rides.
After encountering some issues at first with a rather stiff power switch, all is well now. I am quite impressed with this Brake Free product and its features. For several years, I have ridden with a Vololights license plate frame, which operates in a somewhat same method. I also have nighttime reflective panels on the backs of both of my saddlebags. Why such an effort with these extra safety measures? Many years ago, I sold one of my motorcycles to my friend's younger brother. One night, as he was riding that motorcycle with his friend/neighbor as a passenger, a driver, who was driving at a high rate of speed (maybe drunk, I can't recall), ran them down from behind - killing them both instantly. As a result of that tragedy, anything that I can add to my motorcycling safety is cheap insurance.
The unit looks well made and the engineering is excellent as it works. After a week of use, I believe cars are finding it easier to see me as they keep more separation than I recall. If I had a suggestion, I hope the next version is smaller (narrower) and bet it would increase interest. I'd like to see an automobile version some day. BTW: I used online support when the unit stop working and will comment on how impressed I was with support. They had it resolved in under 5 minutes.
Hardly notice it's attached to my helmet. LEDs are very bright. It was easy to install also. Wife really likes that I have it for riding.
Bought a 2nd one for my wife's helmet. Cagers pay attention. Such a huge difference, feel much safer in traffic.
After receiving my new helmet light, I took a ride in my car with the Brake Free on the passenger seat so I could learn how it behaves under my driving style. This helped me understand how it lights under various braking conditions. Riding with Brake Free gives me added confidence of being seen. It is still important to use road strategy and skill. There is no down side to having the added visibility of Brake Free. Thanks!
Great safety add on!!
It is super bright and easy to see. It works great and is well worth the money!! It's definitely something all bikers should have and use..
Works great so far in lots of winter rain, let's me know when it needs to be charged and I can take it off and put it back on with my helmet on if I forget to turn it on before. The button takes quite a hard push for better or worse.
Brake Free exceeds all my expectations! It’s brighter and the build quality is better than how it appears on the website. It’s simplicity makes it easy to use on every ride. It’s not just a great concept, Brake Free will save lives!
It appears to be a great safety aid.
I had my wife follow me home one day and she said it flashed whenever I slowed down.
the light works great. stopped for gas and and a lady came up to me and said that the light was very noticeable. everyone who rides should consider this as well as a helmet
Works great. My wife loves that extra protection when I’m out for a ride.
Great product, super bright led’s, easy install, different modes for different situations, increased visibility on the road, love it
Easy installation on my helmet. Added weight can not be felt. It does what it’s designed for. Vehicles behind me keep further back. Great choice.
Due to work and weather constraints, we haven't had a chance to hit the open road but only once. From that one experience we can say beyond a shadow of a doubt we absolutely love the system and feel so much safer. We have no doubt that as we travel around many bikers will inquire as to where we picked up the wonderful system. We will definitely recommend Brake Free. Not only for its excellent product but also for its great customer service.
BE SEEN TO BE SAFE
Brake Free is the brightest smart, high visibility helmet accessory with built-in wireless brake detection.
