The main attraction for me is that I can now be seen side on – so when crossing over a poorly lit intersection at night, any cars perpendicular to me can see me – that’s a huge win as far as I’m concerned.

The downside (at least here in the UK) is that any rear bike light must be red, and must flash. I think that can be overcome by also having a separate flashing red light on the rear as well as the Revolights, but won’t really know till I ride past a cop…! 😉
