In 2016, Tailgator founder, Fred Goldfarb was hospitalized after a rear end collision on his bike. After his recovery he asked himself: Cars have brake lights, why don't bikes? They do now!
It took almost five years to perfect the light and overcome the technological hurdles, but Fred and his team did it. We now introduce the Tailgator Brake Tail Light as the most accurate bicycle brake tail light in world.
VISIBILITY IS #1
We are on a mission to make bicycling safer for everyone! Today, over 40% of bicycle accidents are caused by a cyclist being struck from behind. Visibility is the #1 way to reduce these accidents. You must have a bright light so a car can see you. You must have a brake light so a car knows when you slow down or stop. The Tailgator rear bike brake tail light is the premiere safety solution.
