Affordable, Efficient, and a Breeze to Install
Say goodbye to the days of cumbersome e-bike conversions! The Revolutionworks Revos is here to revolutionize the way you ride. Launched on Kickstarter back in May 2018, this e-bike conversion kit has since undergone significant upgrades and is now fully available, ready to bring new life to your biking experience.
Effortless Installation, Lightweight Design
What sets the Revos apart is its simplicity and efficiency. With just three main components – the drive unit, pedal-assist sensor, and battery – this kit is designed for easy installation at home, taking only about 30 minutes. Plus, it’s so lightweight that you’ll barely notice it when not powered up.
Choose Your Power: 100Wh or 209Wh Battery Packs
Revolutionworks offers the Revos kit in two variants, priced at £495 and £595, depending on the battery pack you choose. Whether you opt for the 100Wh or the 209Wh option, both attach seamlessly to your frame’s bottle cage mount, ensuring a neat and integrated look.
Unique Roller System: A Revolution in E-bike Tech
Unlike traditional motor conversion kits that place the motor at a hub, the Revos features a driven roller wedged between the frame’s seatstay and rear wheel. This innovative design, assembled at Revolutionworks’ HQ in Bristol, provides smooth pedal assistance up to the UK’s limit of 15.5mph / 25km/h. The updated model boasts a direct-drive system, enhancing efficiency and reducing noise.
Efficient Energy Usage
Revos prides itself on its energy efficiency, with a typical power draw of just 4 to 8Wh/km, far lower than most e-bike systems. This efficiency is crucial, particularly given the relatively modest battery capacity, ensuring you get the most out of every charge.
Compatibility and Riding Range
While the Revos is compatible with most bikes, it does require a specific setup to function optimally. The kit works best with a slick tyre and requires a 50mm x 50mm space between the seat tube and rear wheel, with a maximum external seat tube diameter of 35mm.
Once installed, expect a range of about 20 to 40km, depending on the battery size. This range is perfect for the average UK cycle trip and offers ample distance for most urban riders.
Quick Charging and Emergency Solutions
In a pinch? The Revos has you covered. Its Li-ion battery can be charged to 80% in just an hour, and fully charged in two. If your battery does run flat, you can manually retract the roller with a hex key, removing any drag from the drivetrain.
Where to Get Your Revos Kit
Developed by the father-son duo Mark and Hugo Palmer, the Revos is a labor of love and innovation. Available directly from Revolutionworks, the kit is a testament to their dedication to making e-biking accessible and enjoyable for all.
