After 10 years of development and focus group study, Third Eye Design, Inc. introduces HelSTAR, an ultra-bright helmet mounted brake and turn signal light that is so power efficient, it doesn't need to be turned on or off.
HelSTAR uses state-of-the-art LEDs mounted at eye level on the back of a motorcycle helmet to alert motorists when a motorcycle is braking or turning. It attaches to any helmet, the included transmitter connects easily to any motorcycle including CAN Bus systems. It's innovative design alerts the rider to a successful connection with the transmitter and warns of a low battery situation.
It is fully programmable and upgradable to include features such as brake modulation and multiple pairing options. Safety is a primary concern for nearly everyone in the motorcycle industry, and technology that drastically increases visibility and safety is tremendously valuable.
“Studies show that the number one cause of motorcycle accidents is the failure of drivers to see the motorcycles in traffic,” said David Werner, CEO and founder of Third Eye Design and developer of HelSTAR.
HelSTAR’s feature rich technology was derived from rider input and a successful US pilot. Available soon from online retailers and powersport dealers across the country.
