Setup:
System: Adaptiv TPX (2019) 2 head front, 1 head rear
Front heads handlebar mounted on brake and clutch reservoirs, rear head mounted above the license plate
Front heads are 45" from the ground and 19.5" apart
The rear head is 23" from the ground

Motorcycle: 2018 Ducati XDiavel (Not the Diavel)
Course: ~1500 feet with a large hill
Gun: DEC on a monopod
Note: Front heads were aligned, but the rear head was only leveled. All three heads fire regardless of which head receives the signal.

Results:
  • The Adaptiv TPX system consistently jammed the DEC from 1500' to around 100' where it would then punch through.
    • This is pretty good for two heads, but maybe moving the heads closer together would help for extremely close shots.
    • I will not be moving the heads as sub-100' shots, specifically with a VPR gun is rare for me.
  • On one run, the DEC managed to get PTs starting at 181' with random painting. A dozen more runs produced PTs at 100' or less.
  • Heavy braking and accelerating did not affect the system's ability to jam the DEC.
  • High speed (above 100 mph) did not affect the DEC's ability to lock speed nor did it affect the system's ability to jam the DEC.
  • Slow speeds (30 mph) did not affect the system's ability to jam the DEC.
  • The large hill did not affect the system's ability to jam the DEC (or the TSS from both the front and the rear).
  • Shooting the tire, headlight, rider's chest, back, and helmet did not affect the system's ability to jam the DEC.
Course:
124917


Video:

PW: TPXDEC

I know we can't discuss actual firmware versions but was the DE recently updated or running something older?? Either way thanks for the well detailed test results! We definitely need a lot more of these motorcycle specific results! :)

Won't discuss. This is my go-to gun that finds many holes in systems.

Awesome! Even mounted on a tripod (kind of) which would add stability and power to the DETC.

Glad to see that shooting the helmet or else does not make a difference as I had predicted .

Thank you for the test

Oops. PW corrected.

TPXDEC (all caps) should work now.

So rear shots with DETC still deadly, unfortunate that you can not add another rear head, it would had been bullet proof

Yeah, the rear shot is not as common and the system should not have a problem with non-VPR guns. Interestingly, the TPX system jammed the DEC from 700' and out with just one head. That is amazing!

Also note that it may be very difficult to mount more that one head on the rear of most motorcycles since they are so narrow.

Brilliant test! Thanks for the great effort and awesome editing. Always love seeing HUD video included so we can see how good the shooter is, and you went the whole 9 yards. That system looks like a brilliant option for motorcycles. LOL at the >+80 in a 30 zone haha

Yeah, the shakiness of some of the video is due to the electrical taped video camera to the gun. The camera had image stabilization that could not be turned off so it was fighting the panning.

The 30 zone is a back road for trucks in an industrial area which they just repaved. Great for shooting since all of the businesses are closed on the weekends. :)

I have a question since I do not have a laser gun handy. if you set the JTK to manual will the jamming signal shut off at the first press of the power button? or do you need to hold it down till it shuts down? takes for checking.

I was going to test last night after my late night ride, but I forgot. I tested this once when I got a false laser from a new SUV pointing at me at a stop light (presume a laser traffic monitor system) and I could not mute or stop the jamming by pressing buttons. I could not power it off either, but I need to do a proper test with my lidar guns since that situation was uncontrolled. I think Adaptiv will need to change the firmware to allow a JTK with a button press. I know that they intend on you not pressing anything since you are busy riding a motorcycle, LOL. The main issue I have is that the auto-kill is locked to 3 seconds which is not enough when you are doing +80 (quite easy on a motorcycle). A four-second kill would probably be fine since you can scrub off another 30 mph in that extra second, but they really just need to make it user selectable.

I'll test this weekend when I try to do my corner/leaning tests.

Thank you!

I even took the bike back appart to switch the controller to the left hand because (like you said) 3 seconds auto JTK is not enough, specially when you rely on the visual light only and you may be distracted checking a mirror or looking over your shoulder to switch lanes, that would be a whole 2 seconds until you notice the light and then it would be too late , perhaps if I go through all the trouble of getting another Sena for the right side of my helmet to use a blue tooth transmitter to listen to the jammer, may be over kill because we do not get hit with laser enough to justify having to charge 2 more units for the remote chance you may get hit with laser.

So either they need to give us an adjustable JTK (I would prefer 5 seconds ) and an instant JTK while pressing the power button once you get the alarm.

IF not just JTG and have the officer fume i guess lol

Yes it does, which makes me wonder if they have bigger plans (ie: four wheeled vehicles).
