BlinkSTOP came about as a solution to a problem that long-time Westfield kit car owner Mike Rowland had spotted while out on Club drive events.  With surprising regularity, drivers would accidentally leave on their indicators, sometimes for miles after the last turn.

The combination of crash helmet, noise and concentration on the road ahead meant that the drivers would sometimes overlook the dashboard warning.  To solve the problem at source, BlinkSTOP was developed, with the inclusion of a brake pedal inhibit function so that cancelling is delayed when paused at traffic lights or waiting to run.

BlinkSTOP was instantly popular within the Club and soon after, BeamSTOP and FREEWheel were conceived.

BeamSTOP intelligently controls your headlamps using a momentary-on push button on your steering wheel.  If the lights are already on, BeamSTOP switches the lamps from dipped beam to main beam.  A second button push returns the headlights to dipped beam.  Uniquely, if the headlights are off when the button is pressed, BeamSTOP will flash the main beam.  Much of this functionality has now been included as standard in FREEWheel and BeamSTOP is now in the product support phase.

With the success of BlinkSTOP, the underlying technology was found to be well-suited to a wireless control system and the progression to a detachable steering wheel was a natural step, resulting in FREEWheel.  

With the addition of a user configuration interface and incorporating BlinkSTOP and BeamSTOP functions, along with an IVA fog light mode and rain light option, FREEWheel is constantly improving to meet the evolving needs of kit and race car owners and can be found all around the world.  In fact, FREEWheel is making headway in the powerboating arena too. 

FREEWheel's use of RF wireless technology with unique code identifiers and communication error checking, a five year battery guarantee, built-in circuit and environmental protection and re-programmable nature means that we can proudly present FREEWheel as the most modern, most advanced and most flexible wireless steering wheel controls system available today.
