Lightning Strike was developed to increase a rider’s visibility while driving on a roadway with other traffic approaching. The intentional use of this product is to be normally off, and only turned on “as-needed”. The system is to be momentarily turned on when the rider feels particularly vulnerable in a traffic situation. When the rider feels a driver may not see the bike approaching, the rider can activate a momentary switch to illuminate the LED lights, thus becoming more visible to oncoming or merging traffic. It is NOT for full-time use while the rider is riding. Use this product similar to a motorcycle horn. This device is a visual horn, designed to alert other drivers that you are approaching them. This product should not be used to intimidate other drivers, or impersonate emergency vehicles.
