Turn Your Sketchy Nighttime Bike Ride Into a Blaze of Glory with Revolights

Night biking is one of my favorite activities. But you know what’s even more fun? Not getting hit by careless drivers who fail to remember that bikers, too, sometimes have somewhere to be after dark. You’ve gotta have good lights, but taillights are passé. It’s time to step up your game. It’s time for Revolights.

The Revolights system consists of four rings of LEDs—two white and two red—that mount to your front and back tires. The weather-resistant lights, which are available for 27’’ and 26’’ road and commuter bike wheels, are powered by a set of USB-rechargeable lithium ion batteries, bracket-mounted to the front and rear hub. A built-in accelerometer tracks your speed and alerts your back light to flash as you slow down, in a first-of-its-kind bicycle brake light. Anyone who can’t see you in this outfit legally shouldn’t be driving.

The nights are getting longer, but for just $199, you can start commuting home right now in a worry-free blaze of glory.
