In Pattaya the number of cyclists has been steadily rising, as have the accidents involving cyclists. Motorcycles have their headlights on during the day to make them more visible, but bicycles remain invisible.
I discovered this item for bicycles, called the Revolights City Wheels, possibly the safest bike lights in the world. The original innovative lighting technology is now permanently built into custom-designed wheels and is a significant step forward in improving safety for cyclists. With the current awareness and news surrounding cycle safety, the introduction of Revolights City Wheels is a great step forward.
Safer Bike riding.
Kent Frankovich, Co-Founder and Inventor of Revolights says, “With 360 degrees visibility and forward light projection, Revolights City Wheels provides a dramatic improvement for cycling safety over traditional bike lights. They require minimal installation and incorporate superb design, making Revolights accessible to even more riders.”
Richard Grigsby, Founder of Cyclescheme Ltd., says, “Revolights’ radically new approach to bicycle visibility is not only going to make night time riding much safer it’s going to get bikes noticed. That visibility will spawn thousands of conversations which will raise cycling’s profile in the wider community.”
