Brake Detection Feature
Your new Burner Brake is an intelligent light that comes with a feature designed to improve your safety whilst cycling. The Burner Brake boosts its brightness when it detects you’re slowing down. This alerts other cyclists and vehicles that you’re reducing your speed, reducing the chance of a collision by making yourself more visible.
This feature is automatically on when operating your Burner Brake. However this function requires battery power to run, so you may want to turn it off to extend life between charges (we highly recommend leaving on).
To turn off the Brake Detection Feature keep your finger on the power button when you turn it on for 5 seconds, until you see three flashes. This signals that brake detection is now turned off. To restore brake detection, simply turn your light on and off again to reset.
Mounting Your Burner Brake
Your Burner Brake comes with a mounting bracket, aero-seat post adaptor and two silicone straps for the specific purpose of being mounted on all standard seat-posts and a variety of aero seat-posts. You may need to switch silicone straps to firmly affix the mount to your specific seat post.
If you have an aero seat post please insert the aero-adaptor into the mount. If your seat post is a standard seat post leave as is.
Place the mount against the back side of your seat post in the position you would like your light to sit. Ensure the Mount tab is facing upwards.
Use one of the two silicone straps by inserting the strap into the Mount arm and secure around your seat post by hooking the other end of the silicone strap into the other Mount arm.
Slide the Burner Brake into the Mount until you feel/hear a click. You can slide your Burner Brake in vertically or horizontally depending on which position you prefer.

Burner Brakes don’t like exposure to high pressure water jets, so please remove before cleaning your bike.
