We purchased a Stoptix Automatic Brake Light for testing purposes, here's the straight dope on this safety improvement for motorcycles. -Motopsyco.com review for Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club magazine

Testing Stoptix Automatic Brake Lamp at Inde Motorsports Ranch in Wilcox, AZ. We spent the day at the track testing the performance of our automatic brake light and also tuning a race version that has a more sensitive g-force threshold. We recommend the race version for vintage motorcycles and vintage exotic race cars.

 AUTOMATIC brake light that works when it should:

  • Downshifts & Engine Braking
  • Front-end Collisions
  • Vehicle Malfunctions that Suddenly Slow Vehicle  

Installs just like the bulb it replaces -- no wiring modifications or splice-in module

Stoptix is the first AUTOMATIC brake lamp.

Stoptix* is the only automatic brake light that requires no modifications to your motorcycle or vehicle wiring because it is the first product to offer a deceleration indicator solution inside the lamp, self-powered and self-illuminating.  Simply swap your bulb for our smart lamp.  
*patented  

Stoptix increases visibility via early deceleration indication and reduces your chances of being rear-ended.  Indicating deceleration one second earlier at 55 mph is 80 feet of additional stopping distance for following vehicles.

“Stoptix bulbs give racers the edge they need to alert others on track when the vehicle slows suddenly due to mechanical malfunctions as well as simple down shifting.  Precious milliseconds count in racing where closing speeds can exceed 100 mph.  Stoptix bulbs are especially valuable in the vintage race cars where the desire to avoid contact is even higher due to the value of the cars being raced.  Stoptix bulbs should be the standard in every race series.  They’re standard in all of our race cars !”

Where Available

Our big roll-out was at the American International Motorcycle Expo on October 13.  The product received a great response from distributors, dealers, and consumers.  

Watch our social media for the announcement on where you can purchase Stoptix. 

Fitment

If your bulb is an 1157 (12 Volt) or an 1154 (6 Volt) type and not rear-loading then the Stoptix lamp should fit.  Our products do not replace rear-loading 1157 and 1156 lamps because our lamp diameter exceeds one inch which is the diameter of the opening in the light housing.   

CAN Bus:  Stoptix lamps have been tested in the Harley-Davidson HDLAN (CAN Bus) system confirming that the bike can "learn" the Stoptix lamp in 5 minutes with the hazard lights on, even with incandescent lamps installed in the front of the bike.  If you are not sure about whether our lamps will fit in your motorcycle or vehicle, then order our fitment check tool from our website.

This tool is made of a soft styrene that is a cross-section of our lamp.  This will not scratch the light reflector.  It installs fully in the socket to confirm clearance before ordering our lamps.

We showed the Stoptix automatic brake lamp to riders at the end of the Trail of Tears Ride. We took no longer than 30 seconds introducing and demonstrating Stoptix. These interviews were unscripted and shot in a single take.


Why You Need a Stoptix Lamp

Motorcycles:  You don't have to remember to squeeze the brake lever when you downshift or rapidly slow down under engine braking.  It also works great for when your bike runs out of fuel, suddenly slowing the bike until you switch over to the reserve tank. 

Passenger Cars:  Reduce your chances of being rear-ended and the possibility of your passengers being injured or worse.  Stoptix lamps are a small cost to pay for this level of increased safety.

Cargo and Fleet:  Reduce your companies exposure, especially when self-insured, by reducing the chance of the truck or fleet vehicle being rear-ended.  Cut your bottom line costs by reducing your exposure and liability with this very cost effective product.  Reduce the down time your business suffers while the vehicle is being repaired.  Reduce the likelihood of your cargo being damaged.  

Builders & Collectors:  You need to protect your investment by installing Stoptix lamps.  The last thing you need is to ruin months or years of work by being rear-ended.

Racing:  Stoptix bulbs give racers the edge they need to alert others on track when the vehicle slows suddenly due to mechanical malfunctions as well as simple down shifting. Precious milliseconds count in racing where closing speeds can exceed 100 mph. Stoptix bulbs are especially valuable in the vintage race cars where the desire to avoid contact is even higher due to the value of the cars being raced. Stoptix bulbs should be the standard in every race series. They’re standard in all of our race cars
