Back light, most likely connected to a sensor registering deceleration.

Additional information:

When cycling in a group, for example a group of sportive cyclists (racing), many accidents happen because the cyclists at the back notice too late that the cyclists in front use their brakes. With the braking light, the cyclists at the back of the group are more likely to see the braking action in time.

Potential effects

Safety effects:

  • Better visibility of cyclists
  • Less chance to have a head-tail collision between two cyclists
