To optimize your presence on the road at night or in low light, offers its Lead Wear MK1 reflective jacket, suitable for all those wishing to cycle.
Since September 1, 2008, wearing a reflective vest is mandatory at night or in poor visibility open road. The State Council has approved the measure after a finding which showed that 20% of bike users were killed or injured at night, at dawn or dusk. That's why we wanted to test an effective and original product to pedal the night safe. Indeed, the winter days are short and out of courses or work it is sometimes difficult to train or go home by bike, to relax, and do his daily activities. The Lead Wear products are not merely reflective vests; they combine both a reflective and Led fabric that significantly optimize your presence on the road. Motorists will see you from a distance and will not be surprised. So we're going to share our feelings about this jacket that will brighten your evening outings by bike...
The MK1 Led Wear jacket has two strips of ten LED, white front and red at the rear, with three lighting functions: slow flash, fast flash and continuous lighting. So you can choose how you want to be seen! The ten LED has a pretty impressive for a lighting power supply with three single RLC batteries. Its bright yellow fabric on the front, sleeves and lower back accentuate visibility. This jacket does not look like a simple fluorescent vest is mandatory in your cars, design and perfectly designed for use for cycling. The back is ventilated by a mesh black mesh allowing good wicking. A back pocket with a zip will allow you to store cell phone, tools, and why not take spare batteries in case. The Led Wear MK1 comes in four sizes: S, M, L and XL.
In the field:
This jacket is comfortable to wear and offers an increased sense of security when we are left to ride at night or dusk. To change the lighting mode it is necessary to open the jacket because it is difficult to access the button placed inside. We preferred to ride with permanent light mode, which does not distract motorists. Sleeves Raglan removable can be removed easily with the zip. We find that with the sleeves rolled removed is more enjoyable because the fabric tends to make us sweat when using this jacket for training. Nevertheless, this fabric has a wind power that is still not negligible. The jacket does not float, finishing at the waist by a resilient avoids that air enters from the bottom.
The test Led Wear MK1 proved to be very enjoyable and we think a lot of people will be interested in a reflective jacket like this. During the test, a cycling stopped us and asked us where we could get this kind of jacket. To optimize your night presence on the roads, it is perfect for the single person wishing to cycle (thus contributing to sustainable development) but also to competitors frustrated not able to run the day or wishes to extend their outputs. Its price is very correct: 54.90 Euros.
