SB2 USER MANUAL
Warranty:
10 Years!
The new SB-II is encapsulated in epoxy for the ultimate protection against grease, dirt and water. CNC'd out of Delrin (R) material case makes it virtually indestructible. Super miniature design packs a whole lot of functions!

This is our best selling product. More advanced than the SB1. It offers more options in terms of hardware and software. Example you can select from 10 different profiles. The SB1 has only one fixed profile.

It's a proven fact that motorcycles can decelerate more rapidly than most cars and trucks. The combination of a motorcycle's narrow profile and the brisk change in velocity during braking is the most common cause of rear end accidents involving motorcycles, and often the results are fatal to the rider. Vizible Technologies' SupaBrake modulators are designed to enhance the reaction time of the vehicle behind you. It is designed to pulsate your vehicle's brake light(s) with a variable number of flashes calculated by its embedded algorithm. The algorithm is based on the rate at which you apply your brakes. As a result, the brake light(s) are flashed in a more subtle manner at lower speeds(when brakes are frequently used), and more aggressively at higher speeds(when brakes are not used for longer time intervals). Whereas other simpler products on the market that continuously "blink" their brake light(s) with an annoying repeating sequence - each and every time their brakes are applied! Our Supabrake product pulses in driving conditions when you need to get the immediate attention of drivers without annoying them.

Upon applying the brakes, the SupaBrake sends a burst of pulses to your motorcycle's brake light(s). The duration of the burst is a function of the time elapsed between the current brake cycle and the previous. After the burst, the unit allows the rear brake light to function normally(solid brake light). This algorithm is designed to eliminate target fixation as found in cheaper, passive versions that continuously "blink" the brake light(s) even though the vehicle is at a complete stop.

Example at low speed
When the frequency at which the driver/rider applies the brakes increases, (i.e. during low speeds such as city driving), the shorter the burst of flashes to the rear brake(s) light will be. If the brakes are applied within 0 - 12 seconds, the brake light will NOT flash - thus allowing it to function normally (solid brake light). This condition is most valuable during heavy stop-and-go traffic so as not to annoy the person or police in the vehicle behind you.

Example at cruising speed
When the frequency at which the driver/rider applies the brakes decreases, (i.e. at cruising speed), the longer the burst to the rear brake light will be. This condition is most valuable during quick sudden decelerations at speeds which require quick reaction to changes in traffic conditions or other driver's intentions. It has been scientifically proven that a quick flashing of a vehicle's brakes will alert the driver behind much sooner ... and the SupaBrake Flasher does this for you.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • User profile select
    Preloaded with 10 field selectable/programmable profiles*. Option to upload a fully customizable "11th profile" available.
  • Input de-bounce
    This feature allows the user to quickly “tap” the brake lever or pedal without the algorithm inducing its flash routine or resetting. In an event of a "tap", the brake light will function normally and will appear as an ordinary tap of the brakes. Another aspect to this feature is that it allows the user to initiate a quick speed check on the rear brakes before a full application of the front brakes. In this case the algorithm will trigger a burst after full brake application.
  • Force-Flash retriggering
    This technology, unique to Vizible Technologies, allows the rider to manually induce a flash routine after the initial application of the brakes. This is useful when stopped alone at a red light or in traffic to alert vehicles approaching from behind. Example: Press and hold the brakes for >3seconds. Quickly release and reapply the brakes within half second. The unit will output a burst of flashes.
  • Decaying flash routine
    Each pulse period is gradually increased from the previous pulse. This gives the given burst cycle a "de-acceleration" illusion when viewed from behind at speed. In other words, the routine will start with a faster frequency and end with a slower frequency.
  • Defeat Mode
    This feature allows the rider to quickly bypass all the functions of the SupaBrake without having to physically remove the unit from the motorcycle. If need be, the functionality of your brake light can easily revert to stock condition.
  • Simple Plug & Ride Installation
  • Bypass Mode allows the user to bypass all the features of the SupaBrake without having to physically remove the unit from the motorcycle..

    Ability to tap brakes without resetting the algorithm
  • Variable number of flashing output based on a 100% programmable algorithm
  • Grace period between brake applications
    The flasher won't activate if brakes are applied again within a certain period of time
  • Force-Flash retrigger
    Ability to induce a burst of flashes while stopped at a stop light if another vehicle approaches from behind
  • Decaying flash routine

Don't put other outdated bulkier modules on your motorcycle that pulsate your brake light each and every time you apply your brakes. Most of these cheaper annoying modules will continue to flash your brake light(s) with the same irritating routine even when you are completely stopped in traffic. This is not only illegal and annoying it detracts from the visual appearance of your vehicle and other drivers/riders attention to the road. Some of these "zombie-like" flashers claim to have an accelerometer module that will supposedly give you a couple of hundreds milliseconds reaction time. We have experimented with these in our lab and road tests, they don’t work due to the nature of engine vibration, road vibration and mounting angle. Simply too many noise vectored components giving them very poor sensitivity. That is not the best way to implement this sort of technology. At best they are just for marketing. Be careful you always get what you pay for.

    Best product out there!

    Posted by Ken on 12th Dec 2016

    I own 4 of these units and just recently had one reworked to adapt to my new Triumph Thruxton R 1200. Bernard is incredible in his customer service and attention to providing a quality product ... I have a tough time GIVING him money! :)

    Another one in the "win" column!

    Great Product and excellent service

    Posted by Roland on 17th Oct 2016

    My third Vizi-tec gizmo I have purchased from them. One was a Fi light eliminator for my Z1000, then I got the flashing modulator for the bike and I liked it all so much I got another modulator for my ZG1400 Concours.

    All of them work great and considering how great the build is on it, I don't for see any issues with them for the next decade at least.

    Keep it up, new bike, new Vizi-tec gizmo I am buying.

    vizitec supabrake

    Posted by L. Aughton on 8th Oct 2016

    perfect. Product does exactly what I expected and wanted. Excellent delivery service, easy to install, and easy to set up. Worth experimenting with the different modes to find the one which really suits you. I think best with an LED bulb and one of the higher flashing rates.

    Excellent bit of kit - it should be a standard on all bikes

    Posted by Julian on 8th Oct 2016

    Fitted in seconds, couldn't have been easier.
    Fast delivery from states too.
    Excellent customer service.
    Seriously though, it flashes the brake light just enough to catch the attention of the muppet behind texting, but not enough to make you the road equivalent of a lantern fish. It's been well thought out with your safety in mind and not a gimmick.
    Such a good idea and so well implemented it should become a standard on all bikes.

    Awesome product, best customer service you can ask for!

    Posted by Roland on 19th Sep 2016

    I first came to know about Vizi-tec for eliminating my Fi light on the 2013 Z1000 after upgrading the exhaust. Great response and product, did it's job and made space in my battery bay. I decided to get the Supabrake 2 just because of their politeness and customer service, Not only did I get it but they upgraded me to the 3! Can you ask for any more? Awesome Customer service and Awesome products. I am very happy with the functions and now I am buying another Supabrake from them for my ZG1400 Concours.

    Simply put, easy to install, and it works

    Posted by Robb Ryan on 13th Sep 2016

    Starting with ordering, finding the correct unit for my bike, & placing the order couldn't have been easier. Adding to that, the unit arrived within a few days, to which I was quite happy...I expected it to take approximately a week. Finally, installing it couldn't have been easier, as it was true "Plug-n-Play" - disconnect the taillight, connect the SupaBrake in-between, and ride. If my next bike doesn't have this feature built-in (which several bikes now do), Vizi-Tec is who I'll turn to, no questions about it.
