Revel and Safe Riding

Safety matters to us, and it should matter to you, too. Here are some things to remember to keep yourself and others on the streets safe.


Wear Your Helmet

All riders are required to wear helmets regardless of local helmet laws – it’s the responsible thing to do, and it protects the precious cargo you’re carrying (your brain). Each Revel comes with 2 different-sized, US DOT-certified helmets. 

Our field technicians regularly visit each Revel, and during the visit they clean the helmets and refill the helmet case with disposable liners.
