Revos | direct electric assist
Designed and assembled in Bristol, UK, this is version Revos 3 which benefits from:
- Improved motor efficiency which leads to longer range and cool running.
- Full three phase sinusoidal motor control leading to very quiet motor operation.
- Ultra low resistance when the legal maximum of 15.5mph pedal assist speed is reached to improve the cycling experience.
- Improved sensor light diagnostic light signals allowing the cyclist to confirm that the installation has been carried out correctly.
- Drive roller with longer lasting RevoGrip composite coating to ensure effective power transfer in all weather conditions.
Revos | simple controls
Revos is activated by a Pedal Assist Sensor (PAS) - to give you immediate power as soon as you move the pedals.
Super intuitive to use - start pedalling and Revos will assist you up to 15.5mph (25kph). If you stop pedalling the assistance stops instantly.
You can keep the assist on for your whole trip if you want to. To switch off pedal assist just back pedal half a turn. You might like to do this if you are pedalling on a flat road or down a hill. To switch the pedal assistback on again, for instance on approaching a hill, simply back pedal a half turn, and the pedal assist is back on again.
The Pedal Assist Sensor can be quickly fitted to your bike, without removing the crank arm, regardless of the type of crank fitting that you have.
Revos | choice of batteries
Two batteries are available with Revos. A 100Wh battery for shorter everyday trips and a 200Wh one for longer trips. How far will Revos take you? Well that depends on how hard you pedal, how much you weigh, how many hills you climb, whether there’s a head wind, what type of tyres you have, that type of thing.
In practice we've found that if you use electric assist all the time then for urban trips in hilly Bristol the 100Wh battery lasts for about 12.5 miles (20 km) and the 200Wh battery for about 25 miles (40 km).
Don’t forget that you’re still riding your favourite bike, so actually you can forget about range anxiety, you just have to keep pedalling!
"The drive unit showed no difficulty, slippage or strain when tackling some of Bristol’s steepest climbs. This has to be one of the most impressive e-bike conversion kits I’ve seen to date."
“Thanks so much for creating Revos! I mounted it on my old bike from the 70s and oh boy is it cool! Setup was quick and everything seems to work very nicely.”
"I received the package yesterday, installed it within 15min, and it works great! Congratulation to your great product. All parts look and feel high quality, are really super fast and super easy to install and its great fun to use. I certainly will recommend it to my friends."
I am really enjoying my Revos a lot. Bristol is a city of hills and having a Revos to give me an added boost is making me get out on my bike more. For instance, I always used to cycle to the theatre and concerts - both at the bottom of hills in the centre of town. I had stopped using my bike for going to these at night but now, having the extra boost, I am using my bike again. I use it for shopping and generally getting about too. It is a really good feeling to be using my own bike rather than buying a new fully electric one. The after sales care has been great too!
"Today I installed the kit. Great experience. I love it, driving with my bicycle and the power of the motor. I' m really happy! I hope I may say this. Let me say, that what are you doing is really a great job. Now I can use my bike for going to work. Hills really will be history. And all this with my beloved old bicycle! Thank you for your great ideas, visions and just doing it."
