A year ago a close family member got hit by a car on his road bike and thanks to wearing a helmet he “only” had a broken hip. It was a traumatic experience – not only for him... and it took him quite a while to get back on the road. So first of all: All of you out there: cyclists, drivers, pedestrians watch out for each other and take it easy on the road.
Make yourself visible!
You can easily do something to become more visible in traffic. For example by wearing reflective clothing, accessories and reflective elements on your bike. It's a first simple step towards better visibility and safety. Wearing a bicycle helmet and navigating consciously through traffic are of course also part of the safety game.
We have selected a few favorite pieces from our shop for your "Want to be seen" wardrobe. (Here you can find the entire collection.).
1) Reflective stickers by Bookman. Sticks firmly to the bike and / or helmet, but can just as easily be removed again without leaving any residue. (Available in different colors and designs).
2) Reflective blouson from siimii. This great jacket is a real eye-catcher and the high-quality incorporated reflector thread lets you shine in a whole new light.
3) Notabag reflective bag: The German Design winner can be transformed from a backpack to a tote bag in just a few seconds. Comes with reflective straps and all the Notabag features.
Rain and wet weather conditions have a negative impact on sight and visibility , so it is a must to wear rain gear with reflective elements. For example, our Rain Skirt a reflective seam on the side.
