For years, we’ve all been buying flashing brake light kits that light up when we tap the front or rear brakes. Now, Vololights’ relatively simple idea makes you realize we’ve been missing the boat entirely. So much of our braking on the motorcycle is done without even touching the brakes, so our brake lights and aftermarket light kits don’t even illuminate most of the time. Vololights are triggered by deceleration, whether you use your brakes or not.

For years, we’ve all been buying flashing brake light kits that light up when we tap the front or rear brakes. Now, Vololights’ relatively simple idea makes you realize we’ve been missing the boat entirely. So much of our braking on the motorcycle is done without even touching the brakes, so our brake lights and aftermarket light kits don’t even illuminate most of the time. Vololights are triggered by deceleration, whether you use your brakes or not. 

It’s hard to believe it took this long for someone to address the huge blind spot in the way our motorcycle brake lights operate. Now that someone finally has, a lot of people are pretty excited about it, and that’s because Vololights is a very cool and actually quite revolutionary new safety accessory. But how do Vololights work? Well, the license plate frame contains a little accelerometer, which basically measures changes in g-force. It’s all contained in the unit, so all the frame needs to work is a little power (typically from your existing license plate frame light), making installation a cinch. 

Once you’re hooked up, the Vololights will illuminate whenever you decelerate, whether through normal braking, or down shifting and engine braking. Two different light patterns alert drivers to normal deceleration or emergency braking.

Vololights came about as a Kickstarter project some two years ago by a couple of motorcyclists, and since then the company has made it to the big time. Their license plate frames are available on shelves at your local motorcycle shop. Road Rider is stocking both black and carbon-fiber look license plate frames.

The Vololights License Plate Frame/Brakeless Deceleration Indicator is $129.99.
