Using a radar detector effectively on a bike has always been difficult in the past. Wind, vibrations, engine noise, even earplugs all mean that the normal wearing devices in a car system just don't cut it on a bike!

Not any more! The Vizalert 100 detects all mobile radar and laser traps and fixed GATSO cameras and gives you visual alerts in your helmet or on the bike.

Looking for a Radar detector and Laser protection for your motorbike? why not try giving the Vizalert 300 a look.

Wireless helmet alerts

Speed trap alerts are transmitted from the detector head to a wireless, battery powered receiver on your helmet. This stylish and unique helmet warning system for radar detector and laser protection displays exactly the alerts you need, discreetly in your peripheral vision. Vizalert can be used with all helmet type; full face, open face or flip face.

Alert type and single strength

Vizalert is the only visor alert system which identifies both the radar band and signal strength to help you correctly interpret and use the information. Different colour's represent different radar and laser bands while the flash rate increases the closer you are to the signal source.

Unbeatable value and unbeatable design features

  • Wireless - no cables attaching you to the bike
  • Discreet visual alerts - for Ka, K, Ku and X Band radar
  • 6 colour LED display - to distinguish between different types of alerts
  • Variable flash rates - to convey the signal strength of alerts
  • Light sensitive - movement sensor automatically powers the Vizalert whenever you wear your helmet
  • Waterproof helmet receiver - no switches to let in water
  • Battery power - by "wrist watch" lithium button cell batteries (supplied)
  • Contoured base plate - designed to fit nearly all shapes of helmet
  • Smart - detector head is only switched on when you start your engine and automatically switches off when stop to avoid flat batteries

World beating performance for our types of camera

Using the same technology as our award winning sentinel system for cars, the Vizalert 100's radar detector head has the best detection range in the world for UK and Irish camera frequencies. It gives you more advanced warning of the mobile radar and fixed radar cameras that are used here, than any other radar detector and also detects laser.

Advanced warning is typically around 300m when approaching a GATSO camera from behind, depending on the location of the camera. Some cameras will register as far as 600m or more. Approaching a camera from the front, the signal is stronger, so there is up to 800m advance warning. Mobile GATSO's will generate similar warning, while hand held devices like radar guns will produce even greater warning distances.

Concealed & discreet

The weatherproof detector head can easily be concealed under your fairing. Once fitted, there is nothing noticeable to attract the attention of passers-by or opportunistic thieves.

No difficult hardwiring

The detector head is supplied with our unique automatic power supply unit, the POWERSENSEnode, which simply connects directly to the battery terminals and only turns your detector on when your engine is running. This means you do not have to do any difficult hardwiring and DIY installs can be easily done in minutes, rather than hours. If you can wire a plug, you can fit this!

Installation tips

Where possible, and for best performance, your detector head should be mounted vertically (to the road surface) and the entire front window of the should have a clear line of sight to the road ahead.

If this is not possible, it is acceptable for the window to be partially covered or mounted horizontally, but the laser sensor must always have a clear line of sight in order to detect any laser beams. The laser sensor area is clearly marked by an arrow. Completely obscuring the front window of the detector will reduce the warning distance of any radar device.
