[CNN] New bike lights make cyclists stand out  

post #1 of 78
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Riding a bicycle around the city at night can be a perilous pastime with traditional bike lights providing a rather dim reminder of a cyclist's presence on the roads.

But a new prototype light system called Revolights could soon make life in the cycle lane a good deal safer and leave bike enthusiasts beaming.

The wheel-mounted LED lights not only provide greater illumination of the rider's path, say its San Francisco-based creators, but also make a bike far more visible from the front, back and the side.


Once it hits night time, TRONcycles.

Awesome, but old news. Article is dated September 24, 2011, the lights were due to come out last Spring.

You can buy them from their website, however at $250 per pair they are a little pricey. Personally I want to wrap my bike in EL wire. I think that would look amazing.
