The average person takes 0.5 to 1 full second to react to hazards. Traveling at 100 Km/h, a rider will travel 7.5 to 15 feet before being able to properly react. Most OEM brake pedals have a single-positioned small footprint, yet most ADV riders substantially change foot positioning as they switch between standing and sitting. If your foot is not already situated correctly on the rear brake pedal, you are now potentially doubling reaction time and distance to make what could be a critical stop. This is why you see all motorcycle racers with 1 or 2 fingers on the front brake lever in photographs. AltRider has taken away this additional hazard with the patent pending DualControl Brake System. There are three parts to the AltRider DualControl Brake System that enhance control and reaction time; a riser, an enlarger plate, and a brake snake.
Riser (Sold Separately)
When in a seated position, a rider’s bent knee naturally puts the angle of the foot pointed down 90 degrees from the lower leg, while a standing position creates a straighter leg and raises the angle of your foot to a more horizontal position. Using the OEM brake pedal, there is no way to keep the correct brake control position when both sitting and standing. With the AltRider enlarger and riser combined, there are now two levels in which to engage the rear brake, putting your foot in optimal position regardless of riding position. As every rider is different, there are two riser heights available depending on your riding style. For those needing additional customization, risers can also be swapped out.
The ever-changing terrain of off-road riding means your entire body is constantly moving and adjusting. The billet aluminum enlarger plate gives your foot a greater surface area to work with, affording you more control of the rear brake. The enlarger plate is precision fit to each bike model ensuring long-term stability. Optional and replaceable grip pins are provided for further customization.
Brake Snake (Sold Separately)
The area between the brake pedal and the bike is one of the most susceptible areas for debris. As you ride, plants naturally wedge into the open crevice, getting stuck and building up. This can cause the mild steel lever to easily bend out of position resulting in a loss of proper usage of the rear brake. With abrasion-resistant braided stainless steel, the AltRider Brake Snake is intelligently integrated into the patent pending DualControl Brake System, preventing debris from gathering and bending the lever. Brake Snake is only available in silver.
All three products are sold separately. AltRider Enlarger is required for use of Riser and Brake Snake.
