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

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.
Have not had a chance to use it yet. Still waiting for my bike to arrive at the dealer will get back to you when I have a chance to see it in action.
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!!
My brake light holder came off due to the heat and I had to purchase another one. I was riding for about five hours and I guess the glue must’ve gotten warm and when I tried to remove the lights the holder pulled off too. It was about 91° out
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!

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!
I have been riding Motorcycles all over the world for 35 years. I consider myself an AGATT rider. I am always looking for new ways to stay safe, but being seen was harder before this amazing product came long. In my first ride with with this light, I had multiple drivers pull up beside me and give me the thumbs up. It obvious to drivers, and its obvious to me. I now have mounts on all my helmets so I can swap my light between them all. Nice 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.
My wife thinks that its the best thing since sliced bread! She loves it!! So much safer when cars are around you!
I haven't been on the road with the product, but it's so bright. I imagine having a break light at eye level will be immensely visible.
I am impressed by the simplicity, elegance and build quality. After spending 30 plus years in the Aeronautics/Aerospace industry I am pretty picky about quality and this thing does not dissapoint
This is a wonderful addition to any motorcyclist’s arsenal of safety gear. It puts a brake light up where other motorists will see it. I would have paid much more for this kind of confidence. Thank you BrakeFree team.
As an eBike rider - I was a bit concerned about my visibility on the roads. My eBike goes up to 60mph, so it's more of a cafe racer. I saw a few ads about BrakeFree and read a review from a fellow rider. I figured the price to value was there and bought one. It came in slick packaging, was easy to use and easier to install. I felt like it made a difference, but In broad daylight wasn't sure . . . until my wife was out walking the dogs on a bright, sunny day. I was quite a distance away, riding away from her and she said the light went from clearly visible to blazing red when I slowed down. That's great news.
Very easy to set-up and attach to helmet. Works great. Excellent light output even in brilliant daylight.
Just because Brake Free doesn't ship to Canada doesn't mean I can't use something that will enhance my riding experience. I was able to figure out a way to get Brake Free delivered right to my door. What an awesome product, well designed, very well made, easy to set up and most importantly what a confidence builder while riding. I was so impressed I will order another one for my wife while she rides her Yamaha Vino. One can never have enough safety features while riding motorcycles!!! Brake Free makes me feel a lot safer!!!
La luz en el casco te da más seguridad para que te vean los carros detrás tuyo
I saw this on Shark Tank and knew I had to have it! My wife usually rides on the back and it makes us feel so much safer! I also bought the adapter so when I ride alone I can put it back on my helmet. This is a much for safety!
The light is cool, it fits my pro-tec skateboard helmet perfectly. I ride a boosted board and this light makes me legit on the street. It is difficult to turn on/off. It is necessary to remove the helmet to make sure you have correctly pressed the button.
Very easy to install. I have two helmets set up to use for one Brakefree unit.
My husband and I saw it on Shark Tank and we looked at each other and thought it would be a necessary item for any motorcycle or bicycle rider. I bought one for my son as he drives in the dark from work and thought it was a very important thing. Was going to give it to him for his birthday but deceided to give it to him way before that. He loved it and thought it was the best thing invented. He has been telling all his friend that bike ride about this product. He is so jazzed about it. We have purchased three more and gave them to our friends and relatives that can use them. It is a great product and lives up to the expections we wanted, and then some. Thank you for a wonderful product.
I live in Vermont (Cold Country), so have only been out twice so far - once for two hours, once for four. I tested it by charging it, mounting it on my helmet then putting it on the floor of the passenger side of my car, and going for a drive. Impressive!! On my four hour ride, it recharged in less than 30 minutes, and about 12 minutes after my two hour ride. Both times I left it turned on the entire time on the "middle" mode - not blinking, not stealth. One thing that I found impressive that your manual doen't mention is that it goes into a "sleep" mode after standing without movement for about 2 minutes, which means that if you remove your helmet at a rest stop (or longer) the battery drain is greatly reduced. As soon as you move it to put it on, it wakes up at the same setting it was at before the stop. That is a nice feature, and you should mention it!!
Great product! Very easy to install and visibility is exactly what a rider needs. All of the people that I ride with can’t wait to order one. They all say it makes it much easier to see when riding behind cycles.
I’ve ridden for many years, and have been very safety-conscious since I started. I wear a high-quality helmet, and an “armored” jacket, but I now consider the Brake-free to be my most important piece of safety gear! I use it every time I ride. I took it off after the highway portion of my last ride, while I bounced around some rocky trails, then popped it back on for the ride home- slick! I’ve gotten 2 friends to order them, and bought one for my daughter. In other words, if you need a genuine spokesperson for your product, I’m your guy! Jeff Murphy
After seeing the Brake Free on Shark Tank, I knew I had to get it as a gift for my boyfriend. He is a Harley rider and ever since he got into a minor accident last summer, I have been worried about his visibility on the road. I gave him the Brake Free as a Valentine's Day gift and he absolutely loves it. It's so bright and easy to install. Highly recommend!
Technology, fit, finish, perfect. Well done folks. Looks great on my Matt black helmet. Like the various modes and the brightness of the leds. Will highly recommend to everyone.
Bought this for my son for his birthday he loves it! He saw it on shark tank. He got his first street bike this year and we love the light it’s very eye catching on the road. He likes the fact it’s matte black. I emailed the company asking them a question they got back to me that day!
I think this is the best safety equipment available for a motorcycle. In live in the northwest and often end up driving my motorcycle in rain. This improves my visibility a great deal.
Blindingly bright! Turn it on and be seen. Installation was easy, however I suggest you have a helper. Sit on your bike in your normal riding position. Have the helper find the position on the helmet so that the light is close to horizontal and mark it with a Sharpie (Alcohol takes that off). Then Clean, Peal, Stick, Hold...... and rest until tomorrow. Buy one for every helmet you have!
Thank you for making this device to help me feel much safer on the roads, in daytime or night time. I get lots of compliments and interest in it from fellow riders that I meet.
That is such a cool product that Works perfect. Make me more visible.
This is the 2nd one I bought, I keep one on my helmet and one for my wife's helmet.
As an older rider, I love being more visible to those behind me. Every bit of safety helps. Thanks
Dr Gerry K.
The enhanced level of safety that is embedded in the use of this technology cannot be overstated. On many occasions I have cringed when looking in my side mirrors with vehicles behind me, trusting that they see me or my small brake light. The Brakefree is incredibly visible and I've noticed the difference in rear traffic. I recently sent a letter to the Chief of Police in my community, recommending the purchase of Brakefree for motorcycle police officers. Most importantly, from a personal perspective, is the comfort afforded to my wife knowing that I have amped up my safety on the road. This is really a must-buy item for motorcycle riders.
Wow! What can I say? Not only does a product do what it supposed to do in the daylight as well as at night, I have had more drivers and other bikers ask me where I got that.! I have found more vehicles are backing off of me than ever before. I can’t say enough to the engineer in crew at break free. I’m hoping to do a video shortly that will outline a little more, but I can tell you from a Safty standpoint.... this is awesome!
Great product, works as advertised. I leave work at night with a blacked out bike and I can't imagine not having it.
Works as advertised. Even though I feel safe on my Spyder, having the extra brake light is just an added measure of protection.
As a rider who does most of their braking with the engine and transmission I knew immediately that I needed the BreakFree helmet light. On my first group ride (Gateway Riders, St. Louis) the people behind me said that the helmet really worked well. Several people inquired into where I got it and how much it was. I saw it in the MOA magazine ad. No regrets here, I feel so much safer riding as a result, knowing that motorists and motorcyclists will get plenty of warning when I slow down. - Tom (St. Louis)
Truly a wonderful safety product. I ride a 1995 Kawasaki Vulcan 800 and installed West Coast Mercury twin LED brake lights with a brake modulator with variable flashing sequences when braking. I noticed people were aware of my braking. However, after riding with the Brake Free helmet light, people are braking sooner and at greater distances behind me. I ride in stealth mode 4 hours at a time covering 150 miles. After three rides ( 12 hours usage ) the battery recharges in 15 minutes. Excellent product.
Works as advertised. In like to think I’m more visible as a result.
love it told other riders and showed them it inaction
Love it! Really makes riding motorcycles safer!
Excellent, product , looks sharp too ,can’t put a price on safety , 160$ well spent , buy extra brackets if you planing to swap on multiple motorcycle helmets and follow the instructions, bracket adhesive needs to set for few days before shaky ride !
Fantastic additional safety measure... Totally worth the cost.
When I first purchased the device I had great hopes and expectations that it would arrive quickly and work straight out of the box as was advertised on the website. But when I received it the device did not function at all - wouldn't even charge up. I contacted customer service immediately and was walked through trying some resets to get the device back to working order. Nothing that was suggested worked and my frustration was mounting with whomever I had email correspondence with to try to get the device working. I was still hopeful that it would be exchanged for a working one right away. I sent mine back to the company and was pleasantly surprised when it was exchanged and the new one appeared FedEx on a Sunday morning. The device that replaced it came with an extra set of helmet mounts for my troubles. The device works perfectly now and I can't wait to try it out this weekend.
My son rides his motorcycle to school where he teaches kindergarten. This makes me feel that he is safer and as a mom, that is what is important to me.
Over a month on first charge! After being rear-ended at a red light a week after getting my new Trike, by a lady in a cellphone, I vowed to do all I could to increase visibility. To include hanging a disco ball if necessary. Thanks Brake Free for an innovative solution, now I don’t have to worry about how I’d hang that disco ball :) . Great product that will save lives! Had to get a second for my wife when she rides with me. Can’t say enough, thanks again!
Works very well. I hope it never has to be used in an emergency situation and that it actually helps me AVOID those situations.
Living in San Diego I've had my days in the sun: canyon riding, some track, and dirt moto too. I share lanes (responsibly) if the highway is full stop. A few of my buddy's got the Break Free light first and it works so well to increase a riders visibility I picked one up immediately. Later, I ordered the two pack of extra helmet adaptors to swap the unit onto my wife's helmet and my road bicycle helmet. The product could not be better in any way. -Todd S.
This is a low cost safety accessory. You spend lots of money in bling for your bike. Spend just a little to help ensure that you can continue to enjoy your passion. Great device to increase your visibility visibility to all the cage drivers claiming that you are invisible.
Great safety product that looks phenomenal!
Very Impressive! Pros: - very high build quality, no cheap plastic molding seams or sharp edges - large, very bright display that is so high off the ground that even traffic several cars back can often see it - g-force thresholds for braking and emergency braking seem "dialed in" just right, triggers on any braking or significant engine-braking with very few "false alarms". - simple operation, no apps, config, setup, etc. Just tap power button to choose between 3 display modes (with your choice remembered next time!) - simple installation, no splicing into bike's brake light circuit or installing transmitter, etc. - fact that engine-braking ALONE will trigger the light, huge advantage! - inexpensive quick mounts for easy swapping between helmets - smart "auto-sleep" and "auto-low power" modes to maximize run time on a single charge Cons: - NONE! (assuming internal Li-ion battery is easy to replace when the time comes...)
Customer service Exceptional The customer service with this company is bar none! I am sometimes leery about purchasing from new companies, online, but I received a personal response, immediately, and my request was taken are of expeditiously, professionally and courteously. Great product, great company, I wish them tremendous success!
Love the light This is the ultimate light in Motorcycle and Scooter safety. You will be seen from everyone behind you. My wife loves the light as well.
Perfect! Great product! Works exactly as designed. Nothing to think about...buy it.
Great Product, Even Better Service The product is exactly as advertised. Works perfectly, incredible build quality. I ended up having an issue with my order that was most likely my own fault and Alex went above and beyond to fix my issue. I'm a huge fan.
BE SEEN TO BE SAFE
Brake Free is the brightest smart, high visibility helmet accessory with built-in wireless brake detection.
