The new SB3 for your Triumph!
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
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.

This is my 3rd brake light modulator. Every time I trade my motorcycle, I get one. Super easy installation, connectors are perfect, and tons of customization. I use the default setup and am very happy with it.

easy to install and setup. works well and alerts other drivers behind you. a must have these days with so many on their phones and not paying attention.

Customer service was great. Fitment was perfect. Installation was easy, truly plug and play. The learning curve was steeper than I expected, and I had to re-read the instructions several times to fully understand how the variables interact to produce a result I liked. A video tutorial would be a great way to help the average rider figure this tech marvel out quicker.

Works great but way too complicated to program. In my retirement community you want flashing all the time when you hit the brakes, not a selective algorithm of flashes. Still. I would recommend.
Bernard(vizi-tec): FYI... The SB3 can be programed to remove the GracePeriod. Thus it will yield "flashing all the time".

This is my second SupaBrake (one for my Yamaha and now one for my Triumph). Both have been great. They are extremely easy to install and have tons of programmable options - not that you have to worry about that if you like the stock programming (which I do).
Overall a great product and based on the thank you / note cards that came in both orders, great people too!

This unit is easy to install and program for numerous combinations of flashing patterns. It works great with my Triumph T120 LED brake light.

So easy to install. Took all of 1 minute once I removed the rear rack which only took about 3 minutes.
Excellent safety device. Thanks.

Works as advertised, very happy with ease of connection and instructions for use.
