Revos fits simply to your bike to give you electrical pedal assist up to 15.5mph (25 kph). So you might like to Revos to work and not get too sweaty, get a boost up that hill, or just take a little less time on the commute. Revos quickly into town without sitting in traffic or needing a parking space. Or simply Revos for fun in the evening or weekend.

Go further and enjoy a helping hand from Revos if those hills are just a bit longer than you remember. Revos - hills are history.

"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."
"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."

Revos consists of three parts which can be fitted to your bike in under ten minutes, the drive unit, the pedal assist sensor and the battery - that's it!

Super intuitive to use - start pedalling and Revos will assist you up to 15.5mph (25kph) as long as you keep pedalling. If you stop pedalling the assistance stops instantly. 

You can keep the assist on for your whole trip if you want to or to switch off the pedal assist at any time then 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 assistance back on again, for instance on approaching a hill, simply back pedal a half turn.

About Us

We are passionate about developing new concepts in e-bikes to promote bicycle use and the joy of cycling.

We are a design engineering company and our ambition is to make Revos in-house as much as we can so that we can bring you a top quality product. Our aim is that this will start to establish Revolutionworks as a manufacturing company so that we are able to design and make other exciting products in the future.  Revolutionworks Ltd is based in Bristol in the United Kingdom.

Revolutionworks was founded in August 2016 by Hugo Palmer and Mark Palmer. This was after several years of research and design by Hugo who decided that the Revos concept was so strong that he left his job in motorsport engineering to make Revos a reality. Having seen the potential of the early prototypes Mark was convinced that Revos was a great idea so he stopped working as an architect after 35 years to join Hugo at Revolutionworks.

Risks and challenges

A lot of the risk in the process of the finalising the Revos product is now behind us as we believe that we have brought it to the level of a functioning prototype. We have held back bringing this project to Kickstarter earlier to ensure that all the risks involved prior to the functioning prototype stage had been overcome.

We are now embarking on the final validation of Revos as a functioning prototype and have commenced by showing it to people in Bristol just prior to the our launch on Kickstarter. This can be seen in the video, which can be viewed on this page. We found this to be very useful and we will continue to hold similar events.

The next step is to move past the prototype stage to manufacture of a finished product. Firstly the prototype design will need to be developed for mass production. That means fewer moving parts; optimised electronics; even quieter operation; increased system efficiency and maybe a few more things. This development won't be at the expense of build quality or looks.
