Compared to a typical automobile, motorcycle stop lamps are simply too small to attract immediate attention. This is especially true during daytime, when the bright sunlight can wash out the red brake light.
tailBlazer overcomes this by rapidly flashing the taillights the instant you apply the brakes. The flash rate then slows down to a steady ON - this cycle lasts about 4 seconds. This flash pattern is called a deceleration Warning.
Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) suggests that you pump your brakes at each stop. tailBlazer does it automatically, and by flashing the bulb filament at maximum brightness.

■ Larger reflector for easier installation.
■ Wider dispersion of light for broad, uniform spectrum.
WHAT DO THEY SEE?
As soon as you tap your brakes, drivers behind you will see a rapid flash of the brake lights. This sudden flashing invokes immediate attention.
WHAT WILL THEY THINK?
tailBlazer uses a flash pattern, which decays exponentially - a well-recognized deceleration warning. The attention to the initial flashing now changes to a clear recognition that you're beginning to slow down! Simply flashing brake lights or flashing them on & off will get the attention of drivers behind you, but it doesn't invoke anything else. Every split second of delay in their reaction time reduces your safety margin.
