This role is played to perfection all sorts of lights and flashing light that can be clipped to the body. Runners most sought reflective tape with red LEDs that can be on the ankle or arm. In addition to the bands worth mentioning even blink a clip or clips that can easily be clipped to a backpack or jacket bottom edge.
The big advantage of such opportunity is turning your bike into any side so that the diodes shine exactly the direction that you need. Most often, you may encounter a red light, but also newly emerging blue and green flashing light that can attract the attention of an unusual color even slightly better than the traditional red color.
Blinked most use when running the bike path or the road. To run unlit passages can, however, their shine will not be enough.
Safety reflective vests
The final safety element intended for running in the dark are reflective vests with integrated diodes. They to some extent combine the advantages of all previous variants.
Vests are usually made from lightweight mesh neon vibrant colors and are densely dotted with large reflective surfaces. For the better then missing two strips of LEDs on the chest and back, which can be individually controlled?
Diode significantly increases the effectiveness of reflective vests and enables its use even on unlit places. Leading white LEDs will never have such power to replace the headlamp, but for occasional overrun unlit section that should be enough. Rear red LEDs then effectively take care of the area behind your back. However, it is practically useless vest provided that you run with a backpack.
I prefer a combination of the clip and head lamp blink (reflective elements on the bag, and clothes are commonplace). I choose a headlamp with high performance that pleasantly and dense fog, which is typical for winter Brno. Another advantage is the fact that the maximum intensity of light can be used instead of a short flash bell to alert the presence of pedestrians my dog person and that on the cycle path passing.
Snap-flashing clip suits me because it is very easy to attach to a backpack, which I have to run back in the evening from work almost every day. Due to running with a backpack, it’s unfortunately out of the game using a reflective safety vest.
Vital is in the closet thirties pairs of running shoes of all types that like to be tested for long races in the mountains, where he occasionally manages to break through to the podium. I like a road, which this year humbled limit of 75 minutes for the half marathon. To Vital ask about any topic related to jogging and active way of life in general, please visit our clinic.
