Revolution Vision Lights

It’s an Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op aim to offer a fantastic choice to cover your every bicycling needs and budget. We also believe in fair competition. Visit our shops or this website and you will find our own-brand Revolution Vision lights nestling alongside the best offers from the some of the world’s most famous bicycle light companies such as Cat Eye, Exposure, Knog, Light and Motion, NiteRider, Skully and Smart.

Despite this keen competition, our own Revolution lights outsell every other brand in our shops.

Why? Because every one of our Revolution lights stands out as a best buy at its price point in terms of its light output, its build quality and its value for money. Here is a brief overview of our Revolution Vision range of bike lights.


Bicycle Front Lights

Revolution Flash Silicone USB-Rechargeable LED Front LightRevolution Flash Silicone USB-Rechargeable LED Front Light £9.99

This fantastic-value USB-rechargeable LED light is a beautifully-simple integrated design.

  • Although this lamp is mostly about being seen, its beam will illuminate the road or path immediately ahead.
  • The lamp is USB-rechargeable for convenience, economy and green-ness.
  • It charges in 2.5 hours.
  • The charger plugs into the lamp – no need to take the lamp apart to access the battery to recharge it.
  • Unlike more bulky chargers, it’s a cinch to carry the wee USB cable charger, say between your home and workplace.
  • Integrated design: a stretch silicon strap is part of the lamp’s body.
  • This strap secures the lamp to your handlebars in one second – no tools required.
  • This arrangement makes it easy to swap the lamp between different bikes – no spare brackets required.
  • The lamp’s single high-lumen LED and its magnifier lens are encased in a robust water-resistant silicon rubber lamp body.
  • This is one lamp that should survive being dropped.
  • Only 38g – you will appreciate this lamp’s light weight and pocketability whenever you remove it when you park your bike.

 

Revolution Vision Solar Hybrid LED Front Light

Revolution Vision Solar Hybrid LED Front Light £14.99

With its extra wide beam and its blue side lights, this is our most conspicuous ‘be-seen’ urban bicycle front light.

  • Its 3 LEDs will also illuminate the road or path immediately ahead.
  • Solar panels on the lamp’s ‘roof’ recharge the NiMH battery.
  • We call this lamp a hybrid light because it can also be powered by 3 conventional alkaline (or rechargeable) AAA batteries, which kick in if you ever drain the lamp’s primary solar-rechargeable battery.
  • Power source – easy-to-access LR3 (AAA) NiMH and alkaline batteries (supplied).

 

Revolution Vision 3W Rechargeable LED Front LightRevolution Vision 3W Rechargeable LED Front Light £49.99

Its 3-Watt LED makes this rechargeable lamp bright enough for confident riding on unlit roads and paths.

  • This lamp lights up the road or path up to 20 metres ahead.
  • Self-contained cordless design – the battery is housed inside the lamp.
  • No need to faff with removing the battery whenever you park the bike, as is the case with high-powered lighting systems with frame-fit battery packs.
  • The 2.5-hour charger plugs directly into the lamp’s charge port – no need to take the lamp apart to access the rechargeable battery.
  • Power source – Li-Ion rechargeable battery (supplied).

 

Revolution Vision 300 Rechargeable LED Front LightRevolution Vision 300 Rechargeable LED Front Light £99.99

Named for its best-in-the-business Cree LED’s 300 lumen output, the Vision 300 stands out for its self-contained (no external battery pack) design simplicity and its reassuringly solid construction.

  • The lamp’s XP GR5 LED is manufactured by Cree. This American company are generally reckoned to be the world leaders in LED technology.
  • Self-contained cordless design – the battery is housed inside the lamp.

  • To access the battery when you need to recharge it, simply unscrew the lamp’s threaded body.
  • On the off chance its 3.5 hour (high beam) – 10 hour (low beam) run time is ever insufficient, you can always carry a spare battery. This is not always the case. Most self-contained rechargeable bike lights (such as our Revolution Vision 3W Rechargeable) have a sealed casing that doesn’t allow access to the battery.
  • Power source – Li-Ion rechargeable battery (supplied).

Bicycle Rear Lights

Revolution Vision ½ Watt LED Rear LightRevolution Vision ½ Watt LED Rear Light £9.99

A very bright light where you need it – i.e. at the back of the bike to ensure you’re spotted by following traffic. We are confident that this is the brightest rear bicycle light you’ll get at this type of price.

  • The lamp’s lens is clear rather than red in the middle to make the most of the ½ Watt LED’s output.
  • In flashing mode, the lamp’s 2 side LEDs and the ½ Watt central LED take turns to blink brightly.

Bicycle Light Sets

Revolution Vision Micro 2-LED Light SetRevolution Vision Micro 2-LED Light Set £9.99

A good quality set of front and rear LEDs lights for under a tenner.

  • Although they are minimal, our Revolution Vision 2 Micro LED Light Set is bright enough (2 LEDs per lamp) to meet the demands of the Highway Code – ‘From half an hour before darkness till half an hour after sunrise, bicycles must display a working white front lamp and red rear lamp which must be seen from a regular distance.’
  • While we would be first to admit that there are bigger, brighter bike lights on the market, this micro set remain a good choice if you just need a set of decent, reliable, inexpensive lights for occasional use.
  • We especially recommend the Vision Micro as a secondary back-up light set, so you’ll still be seen if your primary lights fail for any reason (we’ve all been there).
  • Our micro lights’ elastic strap fittings make them easy to swap between bikes – no spare brackets required – and offer multiple mounting options, not just to handlebars and seatpin but also to belt loops, bag straps and so on.
  • Power source – CR2032 batteries (supplied).

Just a fiver more buys you this set of more powerful lights with bigger, more eye-catching lenses.

  • The front lamp’s 5-LEDs shine a beam that will illuminate the road or path immediately ahead.
  • The rear lamp’s half-watt output is as bright as you’ll get at this kind of price.
  • Power source – easy-to-access LR3 (AAA) batteries (supplied).

 

Revolution Vision LED Light SetRevolution Vision LED Light Set £24.99

Our deserved best selling front-and-rear light set for the past 5 years.

  • The Hi-Power front lamp’s single Watt LED is so bright, many of us use this lamp to light the path uphill when off-road mountain biking (thus saving the mega-Watt light for the downhills).
  • The front lamp’s tooled-aluminium body makes it far most robust than comparably-priced plastic lights.
  • I’ve dropped my Revolution Hi-Power front light a few times without damaging it.
  • The matching rear light’s 5 LEDs are spread over an extra wide (12cm) lens, so it can’t help but be more eye catching than a smaller rear light.
  • Power source – easy-to-access LR3 (AAA) batteries (supplied).

      Hi Adam,

      The Revolution Vision 300 is a mid-power bicycle light that can capably light up the path in front. When angled from the handlebar to illuminate the section of road/path/trail approximately 2.5m in front of your wheel, it illuminates an approximate area of 7m wide.

      All the best
