LucidBrake, creator of the first smart wireless bike brake light, announced today that it will give 20% of all pre-order sales ofLucidBrake at to HIV/AIDS awareness and research. Until July 2015, LucidBrake is donating 20% of every pre-order to AIDS/Lifecycle: Ride to End AIDS, the annual 7-day bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise money and awareness of HIV/AIDS, held May 31-June 6, 2015

The LucidBrake wireless press-on safer biking brake light is now available for pre-order after recently completing its successful Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns, with pricing of $50 until July 2015 (normally $74.99).

“I realized one day that I could make bikers safer on the road. Prevention is 100% better than healing broken bones. I have family members who ride bikes and I have family members who are gay.  I care about them and want to make all families safer. What better way than giving to AIDS/Lifecycle?” said LucidBrake Inventor and Founder, John Craig, longtime author of Microsoft books.

Safer Biking with LucidBrake with 8 Ultra-Bright LEDs

Visible up to a ½ mile away, the LucidBrake smart ultra-bright LED brake light provides safer biking so cars, other bikers, and pedestrians can see you braking, slowing down, or stopping — even at a distance. LucidBrake detects and shows motion with 8 LEDs that  blink as you move and alert solid when you stop (just like a car’s brake lights), showing the difference between slowing down and abruptly stopping with 4 beacon modes (flashing, fast flashing, solid, off) and 2 braking indicators (sudden and normal).  The smart brake light detects slow and stopping motion using all 3 axes of acceleration signals (right/ left, up/down, backwards/forwards),filtering out road bumps, grades, angles, and normal cycling movements.

LucidBrake can be used on bikes, boats, jet skis, skateboards, wheelchairs, scooters, helmets, and even  backpacks. LucidBrake requires no installation and no wiring.  It quickly attaches with press-on 3M fastener material — tough enough to hold up metal siding on buildings in extreme outdoor weather conditions.

Lucid Brake Features:

  • Ultra bright brake light visible from ½ mile away at night and ¼ mile in the day to prevent cyclists’ injuries.
  • Easy to install, no wiring needed. Presses on securely with tough dual-lock fasteners.
  • Patent-pending innovative design.
  • Flat back allows it to mount onto multiple surfaces, backpacks, helmets, etc.
  • 4 different beacon modes (flashing, fast flashing, solid, off) with modes aligning to the E.U. laws (off or dimmed tail-light).
  • Angled cover design increases degree of visibility.
  • Brake light has two speeds:  normal and emergency.
  • Brake Light Indicator:
    • No pressing a pedal or button necessary.
    • Knows when going over bumpy roads, down a hill, or really slowing down.
    • Adjusts to the mounting angle.
    • Flashes more intensely when stopping suddenly, alerting others.
  • No on/off switch: automatically goes into sleep mode when not in use or by changing the position of the unit or storing in flat or horizontal position.
  • Long battery life of over 1 year with 2 AAA batteries.
  • Waterproof :  operates under water for biking in rain or snow, for boating, or other aquatic uses.
  • Lightweight:  under 2 oz. total weight (including batteries).
