In busy traffic environments you need to be seen. During the day bright colours will catch the attention of drivers. If using your bike often around town you may find yourself riding in poor light, poor weather conditions or at night. These are all situations where lights are a must.
There are two things to think about to keep yourself visible on the road; Lights & Clothing.
Lights – You will need to do a bit of reading & research to understand what is best for the type of town riding you do so read our Bike Light Buying Guide. We recommend an easy to carry, easy to attach front & rear light set that suits the lighting environment you use your bike in.
Outer Layers – Simply put, be bright. Catch the attention of drivers from a distance so that they know you are there. Being easy to see keeps you safe. This includes any outer layers of clothing or add a lightweight bright, reflective jacket or vest over your clothing every time you ride. Visit our Be Visible Product Page
