If you’re a fan of hopping on a bike and exploring the city, then I sympathize with you – the grim and wet weather haven’t exactly been ideal biking conditions. Visibility and safety for cyclists is a pretty important point, especially in a city like London, where biking is a bit more of a sensible option than going about in a car.
So if you want your next bike ride to be a safe one, Revolights has got you covered.
Inbuilt LED, safety on the road
The Revolights City Wheels are a complete set of bicycle wheels which come equipped with inbuilt LED lights. There are no fiddly bits and bolts to work with, as they can just be fitted straight out of the box. All you need to do is choose your type of wheels and attach the magnet to your bike’s stays and forks. And voilà, you are now equipped for a safe cycling trip.
The lights provide 360° visibility and forward light projection, which makes it incredibly easy for you to be seen while you’re on the road. I almost feel tempted to buy a new bike just so I can have a set of these wheels on them.
Not for every bike
There is a caveat to owning a set of Revolights City Wheels though – as they won’t work on every type of bike. But if you’re the proud owner of road and hybrid 700c wheeled bike, get yourself a pair of these wheels and you can safely trek out in the knowledge that you’ll be seen by everyone. And that you now have the coolest bike on the road, of course.
