'Shark Tank' Season 12: Can Brake Free Motorcycle Helmet Light get Harley Davidson deal after $200,000 investment?
Brake Free is dubbed ‘the brightest smart, high visibility helmet accessory with built-in wireless brake detection’
Entrepreneurs Henry Li and Alex Arkhangelskiy presented a crazy product and took the Sharks for a ride with the Motorcycle Helmet Brake Light designed to boost visibility while navigating the streets! Exclusively designed for the wild hearts and bikers, Brake Free is dubbed “the brightest smart, high visibility helmet accessory with built-in wireless brake detection. It easily mounts to most helmets. It is detachable, so you can mount to multiple helmets and requires no apps, no wiring, and no hassle.”
Asking $200,000 investment for a 10% stake, the two made quite an impression on the Sharks and even reminded Barbara Corcoran how her younger brother once had a gigantic bike accident and was crushed under a truck. "I lack trust in that aspect which is more important than the product, Barbara said and opted out. Lori called the product "genius" but she wasn't into it too.
It was Robert Harjavec who gave the two a fair offer and the duo got a wonderful addition when Mark Cuban teamed up and took the $200,000 investment deal for a 20% stake. Well, Robert had one condition for Mark and joked that he would have to get on the back of the bike and hug him.
Apart from congratulating them for getting two great Sharks with Robert as the "perfect fit", viewers were quite impressed with the product. "This interesting. Utility patent. You're looking around $100+ for a brain bucket. #SharkTank I want to know how STURDY/shock resistant it is. #SharkTank," one tweet read and another said, "The helmets seem like a cool helmet. Bikers, would you ride with this helmet?" A third tweet read, "I think @harleydavidson or the likes could license this. @kevinolearytv #SharkTank." A fourth wrote, "This tech should even be on bicycle helmets too. I would love to see that."
Woah! that seems like a pretty good idea. An offer from Mark Cuban and Robert Herjavec and a licensing deal with Harley Davidson. Isn't that a dream come true? Well, only time will tell if it actually materializes.
