    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Cutting-edge Revolights City v2.0 bike wheel lights use bright LEDs to create fluid arcs of light as your wheels spin to Illuminate the road ahead and boost safety with 360° of visibility.

    • Smart rings of LEDs synchronize to your speed to create a legal headlight, functional brakelight and true 360° visiblity for your bike
    • Unlike traditional headlights, which have a single point of light, Revolights throw a wide vertical swath, illuminating not only the ground but also elevated objects
    • Low origin point of light helps you to determine the height of obstacles in the road by the length of their shadows
    • Light is visible from 360°, increasing visibility from all angles of approach
    • Weather-resistant design stands up to wet road conditions; 4-hr. battery recharges via micro-USB charger
    • Designed for road and hybrid 700 series (700c / 622mm / 24.5 in.) and 27 in. rims only
    • Fits up to 40mm rim-to-nipple depth
    • White lights in front; red lights in back
    • Includes 4 LED hoops, 2 rechargeable battery packs, 2 fork magnets, 12 spacers, 12 clips and installation instructions

    Sizing is based on the width of your tires (typically located on the side wall of your tire)

    Items with a lithium battery can only be sent via Standard ground shipping, and can't be shipped to P.O. Boxes, Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. Territory, APO/FPO, or International addresses.

    Revolights City v2.0 Bike Wheel Lights is rated 4.8333 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING Product. Patience required These lights are hands down the best bike lights I have ever seen or used. But do not be mistaken, the installation of these take time and patience but man is the final product worth the effort. I have had these for one season now. I do all my biking on the streets of Chicago and the visibility these lights provide is priceless, let alone the wow factor and stares that you get. The full installation of these took me roughly 3+ hours which is the only down side to them but that is not enough of a hassle to say one bad thing about this product. The removable battery packs are chargeable through 2 provided micro USB cables, however you can use your own if you have one lying around since most smartphones use the same plug. I found this to be great design since there are no proprietary chargers to lose. The only other consideration to make when buying these is that they in essence make your rims have a larger depth so I ended up having to purchase an extra long U-Lock to be able to easily lock the wheels to racks and poles. I also use an additional cable with the U-lock to lock up the back wheels as well. The lights can only be taken if the wheels are stolen too so if you have locked up your wheels the lights are safe. I love these lights and recommend them to anyone who commutes on their bike!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Disco Lights Like all the other reviewers, it takes patience to install these. The front wheel went on great. The rear didn't because my chain stays were very narrow and the screws hit. Emailed Revo and I had a new narrower set of hardware in two days. Installed and instant disco party. Revo is super responsive. I get a good 4 hours of continuous use out of them. I get TONS of complements like "Cool Wheels" and "Those are awesome!" I did do my own modification to the front. They worked great, but my 32c wheels still blocked a lot of the forward beam of the lights, so I went to the hardware store and bought some longer screws, washers and lock washers. I was then able to get the lights a little farther apart so that the light goes further. Enough that if my main headlight goes out I can see enough at 10-15mph to see down a dark path. These lights are great. I really like them. I get lots of stares. If I were single I be talking to all sorts of women.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ultimate in Be-Seen Lights Revolights are great, I combine them with a Lezyne front light for the ultimate see/be seen combo. They are relatively easy to install, but do take a decent amount of time. Only downsides I've seen are: The overmold on the W-wire of one of my lights was defective: the insulation was broken before the overmold. I also had some minor issues with getting their fixed-magnets for sensors in the right position and ended up using pieces of a hard-drive magnet to replace them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and service I put Revolights on my commuter bicycle, since I ride in the darkness most mornings. I use them in conjunction with a helmet-mounted light, as the forward throw from the Revolights isn't enough for me to see on a fully dark trail. So while maybe not the right solution if you need both visibility and illumination, it's hard to imagine getting better visibility. I placed the order and got delivery in just a couple days. I also had a couple technical difficulties assembling the Revolights on my particular bike. The guys at Revolights were INCREDIBLY helpful, contacting me immediately as I had questions and made progress, and also supplying me with extra materials to ensure the custom fit worked best. If you want to be seen, get these lights.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING! These lights are amazing and the guys that make them are even better!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for night commuting Great 360 degree visibility during dusk/darkness. (side visibility helps a lot with cars merging on to road/expressway) Many positive comments about them while riding at night. Long battery life. Installation requires patience (second wheel much faster than the first). I use a separate helmet mounted LED head light. Revolights City 2.0 front wheel doesn't project enough light to ride by.
