You might remember a while back we did a preview piece on the awesome looking Revolights. The USB charged, rim mounted, 360 degree lights invented by the gandalph like Kent Frankovich. These ones:
We loved the look of them and promised to try and get our hands on some to road test them. Well, we have news:
Following my shout out for your stories on monday, reader Raul Ramirez got in touch and said he’d like to review, drum roll please…
Yup. A Revolights Review by Raul Ramirez. Try saying that after three bottles of Leffe.
They aren’t cheap and take quite a while to arrive in the UK, so we are very grateful Raul has been kind enough to spend his own time putting pen to paper to share his experience of them with you. And sorry if this is a spoiler, but basically, he loves them as much as we thought we might:
Revolights Review by Raul Ramirez
I bought the revolights three weeks ago. It took me 3 hours to fit after work as I was very careful and adjusting stuff all the time, but since then I feel like, street hawk/night rider/ tron all rolled into on and I wake up wanting it to be dark.
I find myself pottering about until sun down at work so it’s dark then I ride with a smile on my face most of the way home, unless someone cuts me up, but then I go to a happy place and look at my lights and smile again.
The best thing about these lights are they are durable and they can be seen from all angles which means they are also bright. They are robust and very secure in the rain (4 times in fairly wet conditions).
Raul has lived in London since 2008 and commutes every day from Sutton to London Bridge for work. He owns three and half bikes, is genuinely passionate about all things bike. If you want to catch up with him to chat:
We’re headed to Interbike!
We’ll be exhibiting at Interbike booth 31151 in Las Vegas from September 18 - 20th. Interbike is the premier bicycle industry trade show, and this year it’ll be hosted at Mandalay Bay. If you’re in Sin City, come by and meet the Revolights team and check out the newest addition to our product family… Revolights City Wheels! We’d love to meet you.
Wheels. With Revolights built in.
Here at Revolights we believe that continual improvement is critical in our endeavor to change the way people view bike lights.
Revolights City Wheels make things even easier. They create the same 360 degree visibility + forward projection as before, but require minimal installation. We’ve permanently installed Revolights City onto a custom set of wheels - riveted - right into the rims. Now you just put the wheels on your bike, mount your magnets and ride.
Check out our second Kickstarter campaign for more details on Revolights City Wheels.
Handsome and @oneononebike alley party. Who doesn’t love #bikederby! #vscocam #Revolights #Levis #Commuter #Mpls #Minneapolis
