A new innovative system that consists of 2 thin profile LED rings (white in front, red in back) that mount directly to each wheel rim. Power is supplied via the hub where a USB rechargeable lithium-ion battery is held. A small magnet is secured to the fork to provide speed and orientation information to the rings.
Revolights currently designed to fit Road, City and Hybrid bikes with 27" to 700C wheel sizes.
There are a total of 24 LEDs on each wheel, 8 of which of are lit up at any given moment. Each LED is rated at over 35 lumens, but since our LEDs are continually rotating and lumens are a unit of flux (light/area) the most accurate description would be: Revolights brightness = 8 LEDs x 35 lumens ea.
How Long does the battery last?: About 4 hours in the front; longer in back. Revolights are shipped with 1100mAh batteries. Eight LEDs sink about 250mA total during operation, making for about 4 hours of runtime.
