Revolights was founded in 2011 in San Francisco by Adam Pettler and Kent Frankovich. The idea came to Kent as he returned from his bike lessons. He realized that the lamp attached to his helmet lit up only a part of the road ahead, and that the obstacles below were not visible at all.
Thus he decided to create a device, placed on the wheels, in order to obtain a greater field of vision. After testing several prototypes, the Revolights were officially launched in September 2011 via the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. An equity fundraiser and two more participatory campaigns later, Revolights illuminates the cycling world with Eclipse. Soon, the device will be connected via Bluetooth to a mobile application with multiple functions that are as useful as practical.
