#2845: Trailever

Many of us were taught to operate the front brake on a motorcycle only in an emergency and only when not leaning and only using all four fingers.

This is hard to recall when you need to brake suddenly on a bend.

Today’s invention is a brake lever which is attached to a lean angle sensor.

When the bike is leaning, only a short length of brake lever is exposed (blue). As you straighten up, so all four fingers can grab the brake (green).

This also helps with trail braking, which is a skill I think is important.
