Remember watching the original Tron, and how you wanted one of those Light Cycles? Like, for reals?
Well, now you can have one, at least on your bike, thanks to Revolights.
The brainchild of two wheel-obsessed whiz kids (a Stanford mechanical engineering grad and a molecular biologist) and finally available for retail after a successful 2011 Kickstarter campaign, Revolights are a futuristic bike lighting system that make nighttime rides imminently more safe and, well, Tron-like.
The ‘lights themselves are two thin LED rings mounted on each wheel rim that create solid arcs of light projected forward, backward and to the side of the bike." The benefits:
- Lights that are closer to the ground, making it easier to avoid potholes and bumps
- A full 360 degrees of illumination and a car-mimicking light system (white in front, red in back) to better identify yourself to night-time drivers
- Theft-resistance: Since they’re mounted, they’re not going anywhere...unless you lose your entire wheel
Revolights are available now for a limited pre-sale for $250.
A small price to pay to compete on the Game Grid.
