Found: Revolights Arc – LED Bicycle Fender w/ Integrated Blinky & Automatic Brake Lights
Revolights, which has launched two wheel-based bicycle light systems on Kickstarter is back for their third act.
The Arc LED light system is an add-on product that fits onto existing fenders, letting people simply add it onto the fenders of their choice. There’ll also be two complete options, one with a plastic universal fender and one with a higher end metal fender.
“The design is able to conform to different shapes,” says Drew Ocon, Revolights’ marketing manager. “All of the electronics we’re using and the plastic itself is pretty flexible. Not only does that allow it to curve to the shape of different size wheels, but also open or close (think hot dog bun) to fit wider or narrower fenders, too.”
The built in sensor detects deceleration, trigging the lights to become a solid brake light when you stop. The blink pattern will also speed up as you slow down, providing plenty of visual cues to drivers that something’s changing. Video intro, pics and more below…
The stretch goals double up on the project a bit. They want to add turn signals, which would be controlled by a small wireless toggle switch on the handlebars.
Help fund the project and you can get one for as little as $69. Pledge $629 and you’ll roll away on a Public V7 bike with the Arc light fender preinstalled. Plenty of other options are up for grabs, too. Check the campaign here for full details.
