Take a look at the featured video that demonstrates the product in action. By linking the braking cable action, the light turns on when the brake is applied.

The product appears to be very small, light and simple in design. The makers claim that the light can be installed without using a tool and is compatible with V-brakes, side pull callipers and direct mount brakes. The light is turned on by a clever, but simple steel leaf spring switch.

Crucially, it is claimed that the Nano bike brake light does not affect braking performance in any way. A second video displays the product with more detail.
The product features a high brightness LED and is rain proof. By using a CR1025 coin battery, the makers claim a constant run time of 50 hours, which we think is rather impressive.
With diminutive dimensions of 31mm by 16mm by 30mm, the light has a claimed weight of only 5.5g with battery. We think bike brake light is a really cool invention that would be useful while commuting and group riding. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
