In this episode I have a great discussion with Alex, Henry and Ian, the founders of Brake Free. Brake Free's first product, which they describe as "The Smart Brake Light For Your Helmet", is a device that easily mounts to the back of your helmet and provides a third brake like, similar to the ones you see on all cars today. Brake Free requires no external wiring, and has built in circuitry to sense when you are light braking, hard braking, engine braking, and so on. The goal is to make you more visible on the road and to help avoid one of the most common accidents for motorcyclists...being hit from behind by another vehicle.
