Skene Lights, maker of motorcycle visibility lighting, recently introduced a decelerometer version of the P3 rear system to enhance motorcycle rider safety.
Motorcycles slow down very quickly when engine braking or downshifting. Drivers behind often fail to recognize the slowdown because no brake lights are triggered. Skene Lights has added a decelerometer option to the P3 rear visibility systems that recognizes rapid deceleration and triggers the brake light flash sequence without the rider ever activating the brake lever.
Skene Lights’ proprietary decelerometer system offers five sensitivity levels allowing riders to adjust to their bike, riding style and conditions. Riders can change levels at any time using the brake lever and even have the option to turn it off. In fact, riders can change modes for tail lights, brake lights, emergency flashers and decelerometer sensitivity after installation with the brake lever. No additional software, cables, or wiring are required.
The deceleration system combines microprocessors and proprietary algorithms within a small controller to monitor the bike’s speed and direction. It even recognizes hills and leans, adjusting automatically to avoid triggering the brake lights unnecessarily.
The P3 with Decelerometer and other Skene products are compatible with all motorcycle makes and models including those with CAN-bus systems.
