It's the same technology as the Prodigy with less adjustability... the remote is to manually put the brakes on when your not near the controller, or if your lazy I guess.

I love my Prodigy, not because it WORKS any better than any other brake controller, because face it, stopping is stopping, but it makes the experiance a lot more pleasureable by applying the brakes linearally.
