Most of us know the wonders of ABSAnti-lock braking system (ABS) is a system on motorcycles which prevents the wheels from locking while braking. The purpose of this is to allow the rider to maintain steering control under heavy braking and, in some situations, to shorten braking distances (by allowing the driver to hit the brake fully without the fear of skidding or loss of control). . Though many prefer not to have ABS, there's little doubt that ABS does save lives, and can make riding a motorcycle easier and safer. But... ABS is very expensive. There's a lot of electronics involved, and sometimes it just doesn't work the way it should.

There's another product that prevents your motorcycle wheels from locking up in an emergency braking situation. Let's face it, sometimes when something gets in front of your motorcycle and you grab the brakes in a panic, you tend to block the wheels. Blocking your front wheels can be very dangerous, since you lose control of what will happen next.... you become a passenger.

Lifesaver TCB (Total Control Braking) Open link in a new window is a small bolt that is installed on your braking system, replacing the original banjo bolt.

Once you've followed the detailed installation of the bolts (not forgetting to bleed the brake system), your brakes become more response, but more important, prevent you from blocking your wheels.

Lifesaver TCB doesn't stop you from blocking your wheels (front and rear), but it does bring the event that causes the wheels to block much further away. So if you grab the brakes in the panic and pull, this might just save your life.

The Lifesaver installation allows you to better apply your brakes. It's not longer and on/off situation, but a better braking range...

It's not ABS, but it also isn't ABS price. ABS needs to be installed in the factory, so you can't even add it to your bike, even if it's available. ABS will cost you 1,000's of dollars. Lifesaver TCB will set you back US$99 per brake....

How much is your life worth....

Lifesaver have four different model with different performances. 95% of motorcycles are covered by their products.
