How to Stay Seen in Reflective Gear

Why is reflective gear so important? Visibility is essential when you’re out and about on your bike, especially if it’s before dawn or after dusk. Studies show that having the right gear can significantly reduce the odds of an accident. Studies have also shown cyclists often overestimate how visible they are to drivers, so it’s always better to err on the side of caution with multiple reflective elements, from your bag to your accessories. Below, we’ll go over all of our best-selling designs with reflective features to help keep you seen.
