Mission

To provide products that make roads safer for riders and drivers alike. We will lead the bicycle lighting market toward more forward-thinking, safety-minded products for cyclists.

Description

As Kent was riding home one night, he wondered why his bike’s headlight, meant to illuminate the road ahead of him, was mounted on the handlebars. Why couldn’t the light be closer to the ground? He put his engineering mind to work, and the Revolights bike lighting system was born.

Late in 2010, Kent was chatting with Adam about an idea he had for a new kind of bike light. He pulled out his phone and played a video of an early prototype. “Dude,” said Adam, immediately impressed. “We should start a business.”

Adam began to draft a business plan, secure copyrights, and get the word out while Kent continued to develop and refine his innovative prototype.

Initial project funding was achieved via a kick-butt Kickstarter campaign, with over 1,400 generous supporters—raising a total of $215,621.

The Revolights Founding Team all grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, where innovation is the norm. Kent and Adam are excited to make their lights available to cyclists worldwide.
