Why need a bicycle brake light?
- According to statistics, majority
of bike-related accidents happened by being hit !!
There are over 20 million bicycles sold in the U.S. each year nowadays,
and there are thousands of injuries and deaths out of accidents each
year too. Here
you can find important statistics. Unlike most European countries,
most roads in the States don't have bike lanes, which forces bike-riders
to ride closely with cars, trucks or motorcycles, and thus exposes themselves
to great dangers......Also when riding in a group, bike-riders tell
us that accidents happen because the guy in front slows down or stops
and the one behind doesn't notice in time. Even 0.01% risk should be
avoided, and our brake lights are here to help reduce the accident probability.
Don't let any "tiny" risk become a "big" devil standing
in your life !!
- Can a mere flashing light protect
you enough???? Flashing lights only work at nighttime,
so apparently, it can not protect you at all at daytime. And also, flashing
lights don`t send signals of braking to the following vehicles, therefore,
is of limited protection at nighttime too. MAXXON bicycle wireless brake
light (works both day and nighttime) will be giving you and your lovely
bike excellent safety while riding !
- MAXXON wireless bike brake light can
provide you with better legal stance when facing an accident lawsuit
- To sum up, MAXXON Wireless Brake Light
provides extra safety to riders, when
riding in heavy traffic
riding on the
road along with cars, trucks, motorcycles and etc.
riding in a group
(ex. family tour, everyone rides very close to each other)
riding on downhill
riding at high
Why choose "wireless" brake light ?
Important features of MAXXON wireless brake
First Only) Employing Nintendo/Wii high
technology, it turns 5x brighter when braking or slow down with easy installation (exactly same as
installing a regular tail light, no extra hassles at all....... Please
see our installation video at bottom of the page)
First Only) It empolys PWM/Switching
electrical technology to maintain stable brightness during low-voltage
conditions and can save power up to 30%, and the stable brightness
control makes it work with rechargeable batteries
without sacrificing brightness. (All tail lights in markets, including
brand names such as Cateye, Sigma, Niteriders, BikePlanet Serfas,
Blackburn and etc. have no such function in their rearlights. According to experiments, their lights' brightness will
get up to 40% dimmer when using rechargeable batteries)
- World-strictest Germen K-standard
giving you high-quality brightness (total 0.5W equivalent brightness output with
just 0.1W power consuming) with wide 240-degree lighting
angles. With rechargeable
batteries, MAXXON brake light has longest battery life in world under
Germen K-standard brightness, at least three times much longer than
other brand-name ones such as Nightrider(USA), Bikeplanet(USA),
(Germany), and B&M(Germany).
- It is 2007
Taiwan Innovative Prize Winner, and is honored with U.S. Patent no.
US7649447B2, Japan Patent 3131558, Taiwan Patent M300350, and China
- Equipped with the automatic power-on (within 30 sec of
riding, auto power-on into MODE_3 ), and automatic power-off functions
(when still over 4 mins)
- Equipped with a low power indicator
(when voltage lower than 2.25V)
- Max Alkaline battery life: MODE_1<200
hrs>, MODE_2<100 hrs>, MODE_3<800 hrs>
How does it work?
- Unlike traditional
"wireless" brake light that uses RF radio transmitter ,
MAXXON brake light requires no radio transmitter installed on brake
levers and works on both V- and disc brakes. Our product mainly comprises two
main U.S.-made IC chips: a micro-controller and an accelerometer
sensor. Its soul, our software technology, is embedded inside the
micro-controller, so making it possible to properly detect deceleration of a
bicycle.....Therefore when it detects a "material"
deceleration, then the system will give off brake lights to warn the
vehicles behind you for extra security.
- PLEASE NOTE: There are two circumstances
that it would not give off brake light even when brake levers are applied.
When on downhill roads brake levers are pressed in attempt to simply keep
speed, the system would not give off brake light since there is no
deceleration detected despite the brake levers pressed. Another
circumstance: the brake light would not respond to "slight"
deceleration. The brake light is designed to detect
"material" deceleration, not "slight"
deceleration. This is so designed because if the brake light is
designed to even respond to "slight" deceleration, the brake
light would suffer three major drawbacks: (a) the brake light may
undesirably mis-function on slight deceleration caused by natural
mechanical friction or headwind resistances despite of no actual
braking, (b) would lose attentions actually in the long run due to too
frequent "light-up", like the story: "The Boy Who Cried
Wolf" effect, (c) would unnecessarily suffer more power-consuming due to too
frequent "light-up".....We have done countless experiments
and road tests, designed the technology to work at a reasonably good
condition in the view of maximally protecting riders' safety, and industrial-first&only
obtained world-strictest Germen K-standard approval/accreditation in
this kind of technology field.
- PLEASE NOTE: At regular deceleration the brake
light has about 0.2 second delay response (because the
micro-controller IC needs sufficient time to analyze and judge so as to avoid mis-functioning
on undesirable slight deceleration), while at severe deceleration the brake light has
no delay response perfectly. Some users feel that the brake light is not
sensitive enough, the reason is the 0.2S response delay. When users press
brake levers harder and harder gradually, they would feel the brake
light responds at the time point when the brake levers are already
pressed sufficiently hard, which gives them the feeling that the brake
light is only responding to "hard braking". However,
if users press brake levers steadily at one shot (not press harder
gradually) to make steadily light deceleration, they should feel
that even light deceleration (not slight deceleration) would activate
our brake light with no problem.
- PLEASE NOTE: Our wireless brake light is only suitable for
all kinds of regular bicycles, but NOT motorcycles or
motorbikes (unless they are within 20 KG in weight)
How are consumers` experiences and testimonials?
- "Wireless brake light? Initially I
thought it is just a gimmick, but it indeed gives me extra
feel of secure after use, I love it !" by John Deere,
- "Other than the function to make
brake light cableless, I am especially fond of its stable-brightness
function. Due to frequent commuting I use rechargeable batteries often,
and found maxxon light stays quite same brightness, which quality I couldn't
find in my Cateye mounted on another MTB" by
HuiWa Lee, Taiwan
- The fact: Maxxon wireless
brake light has been the best-selling bike rear light in the two
major online shopping sites of Taiwan (Yahoo and PChome)
nevertheless its highest price among 30 listed rearlights
including Cateyes and Sigma. Please see Taiwan YAHOO and PCHOME Shopping Mall.
Highest price and best selling ?! There is only one reason to
explain this - It is a must-have item with good reputation among bikers. So start to experience
it today !!
- Special thanks to GIANT Professional Team (Asia), who purchased our brake light for their daily training.
"I like this light. Although our professional team usually don't use lights to save the weight, however when we train in a group, we
found out brake lights do give us more safety, and safety is always the first priority !!"
by GIANT Professional Team Manager Mr. Chang
