NEW SECONDARY LED TAIL LIGHT for MOTORCYCLES AIMS to IMPROVE REAR VISIBILITY


NEW SECONDARY LED TAIL LIGHT FOR MOTORCYCLES
AIMS TO IMPROVE REAR VISIBILITY AND INCREASE RIDER SAFETY





The Red Tail-40™ includes an oversized LED module that attaches to standard license plate mounts


The Red Tail-40™, a secondary tail light designed for motorcycles -- with an exceptionally large LED array -- was announced by Crandall Consulting.

The Red Tail-40™ is designed to increase visibility and awareness for motorcycles that display a license plate directly below the tail light, utilizing space that is typically empty or unused. It features a 9.4 square inch lens and 40 powerful LEDs that disperse bright red light with wide-angle visibility. The unit works in tandem with a stock tail light and can significantly increase running and brake light visibility, while delivering backup in the event of bulb failure. The Red Tail-40™ is featured at RideSaferUSA.com, a Web resource that provides trends, developments and information links about safer motorcycling.

Designer Van Crandall explains that, “The Red Tail-40™ attaches directly to a bike’s license plate mounting bracket, along with a standard 4 x 7 inch license plate. The oversized LED module is integrated with a tough but lightweight CNC-machined back-plate. Although the LED module is considered large, the unit’s compact dimensions measure only 7-Ό” x 7-⅜” and weighs less than one pound. Three connections spliced into the tail light circuits are required and typical installation time is about one hour.”

Two Red Tail-40™ versions are currently available: STANDARD has a straight 180° back-plate, while the SLANT version is angled at 15° in the lower section, providing slightly more clearance for a protruding mud-flap, emblem or other part that could otherwise make contact. Both versions include mounting hardware, a complimentary standard-size license plate frame and a one-year limited warranty. Both product versions are compatible with many motorcycles, but not all. The RideSaferUSA Web site includes a link to download and print a PDF template to quickly check compatibility for any motorcycle.

“This design approach enables a much larger, secondary LED tail light to be used to improve visibility at the rear,” Crandall emphasizes. “Early prototypes were developed and used on a handful of bikes over many years. Having optimized the design, it’s finally available to other motorcyclists. I’m confident the performance and reliability of the Red Tail-40™ will exceed the expectations of riders looking to install a quality secondary tail light to increase visibility.”
