“THE BEST BIKE LIGHTING SYSTEM IN THE WORLD“
– the Men’s Journal
A legal headlight, smart brake light, and 360º visibility.
Designed from robust, weather resistant materials Revolights combines bright LEDs and smart electronics to ensure that you and your bike are seen. Be seen, be safe.
Incorporating 12x 35 lumen LEDs per ring, a rechargeable battery, and weighing in at just 348g (12.3oz) per wheel, Revolights provide unsurpassed visibility, and are weather and theft resistant.
HOW ECLIPSE WORKS
The patented Revolights design consists of four narrow rings of LEDs – two white at the front and two red at the rear – mounted directly onto the wheels of your bicycle via four spoke clips per wheel. The lights are powered by a USB-rechargeable battery that snaps directly into the rings.
Each wheel consists of 24 equally spaced 35-lumen LEDs, with 8 being active at any given moment. A fork-mounted magnet and integrated accelerometer provide speed and orientation data to the rings, allowing the LEDs to illuminate only when oriented to the front or rear of the bicycle.
By constantly tracking your wheel speed, Revolights Eclipse is able to detect when you hit the brakes and alert traffic with a first of it’s kind brake light. Once a change in speed is sensed the red LEDs will flash at a rapid rate informing tailing traffic that you are decreasing speed.
Unlike traditional spotlight style headlights, Revolights’ patented design creates a spread of light, lighting up the ground as well as elevated objects like street signs. The forward projecting headlight also meets all requirements to be recognised as a legal headlight in most countries.
Multiple LEDs rotating at speed are controlled by the smart electronics to provide a white arc of light to the front – acting as a headlight – as well as being visible from the sides, and an intelligent brake light (red) at the rear that senses changes in speed.
SEE AND BE SEEN
With 360° lighting, you will be noticed by pedestrians and traffic.
Cyclists can remove Battery Packs from the wheels for easy charging with a Micro-USB cable. A single charge lasts 4+hours.
Revolights were developed for the urban environment and are made out of robust and weather resistant Zytel 101.
