Significantly enhance your visibility to road users behind you.
Every year when riding with friends or others in a group, I am frequently asked where I got my additional taillight. The reason I’m asked is because it stands out from any OEM taillight, and you can bet that, like my riding buddies, any person following me notices this conspicuous taillight that considerably enhances my visibility.
I did a full review of the Admore Light Bar Pro back in the September/October 2021 issue of this magazine (motorcyclemojo.com/2021/08/admore-light-bar-pro) and because I am often asked about the light from interested riders, I thought it might be a good idea to revisit the details of the Light Bar Pro for others to know, as well.
AdMore Lighting is based in Calgary, Alta., and has been creating safety-oriented, enhanced visibility LED taillight and brake light solutions since 2005, and the company’s super-bright Cree LED programmable light bars will certainly grab the attention of the driver behind you and, most importantly, help you avoid a rear-end collision, or even get a tailgater to back off.
The Light Bar Pro is an ultra-advanced multi-function series of 81 high-intensity bi-coloured Cree LED bulbs that are enclosed in a weatherproof aluminum housing that measures 20 cm wide x 3.2 cm tall x 1.8 cm deep. It can be fitted to any motorcycle.
It features CANBUS-compatible advanced electronics, Bluetooth connectivity and a smartphone app that allows the user to fine-tune the pre-configured settings and adjust every aspect of the taillight, turn signals and brake light functionality, plus a bevy of other features. In fact, at the request of riders following behind me, I have turned down the intensity of the LEDs through the app, as they were a little too bright.
In addition to getting the attention of the driver behind you with the brake light, the Light Bar Pro also uses a sophisticated Bosch accelerometer sensor that detects deceleration — if you chop the throttle or downshift, for instance — which can also activate the brake light. The sensitivity of this setting is also fully adjustable in the configuration panel of the app. The smartphone app will also update the Light Bar Pro’s features and firmware when updates become available, making this technologically advanced light bar functional for many years to come.
Installation is easy and the app and the light bar are both very user-friendly and quite neat in their approach to safety. And if you are concerned about which wires on your bike to connect, there is a comprehensive database of wire colours by various manufacturers on the AdMore website for your convenience.
Go to admorelighting.com for more information or to order the product. The Light Bar Pro comes with a full one-year warranty and retails for $219. That’s a small price to pay for the added security knowing drivers behind you see you.
