Visibility is a big issue for all cyclists in the darker months of the year, and wearing or using reflective products can help. With Weathergoods Luna Collection, we have taken some of our most popular products and added a silver twist, as well as some new smart products for urban cycling.
Reflective materials are making their way in to more and more fashion accessories and apparel for the urban cyclist and not only is this a necessity but defintly more fun than the dreaded reflective vest.
Reflectivity works by returning the light to the source, and is especially effective if the reflective area is moving so as to alert the eye of the person behind the light source( aka car). So wearing or having some extra reflective details on your bike is the best way for the urban cyclist to be seen in the dark.
In our Luna Reflective Collection we have used a Bluesign polyester fabric with a dwr and 10k waterproof lamination. Reflective printing in two patterns creates a fun way to add functionality while still remaining stylish. We have also used a fully reflective silver fabric for the top of the Luna Silver Mittens.
Our Luna collection includes our popular rain covers for front bicycle baskets. A super practical product now with a stylish twist. Our basket covers have the same functionality as before: waterproof, a convenient zippered opening and safety tabs to secure them to your basket. Now also with a reflective print, they improve visibility in the dark and look even better than before!
We are also introducing a new simpler version called the Multi Use Rain Cover. It fits over, bicycle baskets, backpacks, panniers, bags, or anything you want. It is also waterproof and can be adjusted to fit around anything with it’s elastic string and stopper. A truly flexible product, it folds into a built in storage bag that can be attached to your backpack straps, pannier bag, basket or handbag. You can use it even when it isn’t raining for some extra visibility.
Reflective Gloves – A new product
Gloves were an easy choice for us. As a cyclist, your hands are always visible and pretty much always cold. We wanted to make gloves that were chic enough to go with your winter outfit but functional enough to use for your bike ride. Our Luna reflective collection has reflective print on the topside which is visible when bicycling and signalling turns. The mittens come in 3 different styles – reflective dots, reflective check and silver reflective. Our mittens are filled with 80grams thinsulate and 110 grams thermal polyfill. They have a silicone print on the palm and an extra long cuff for maximum warmth and protection. Windproof, waterproof, warm, visible and stylish. What more could you ask for?
Our hope is that the Luna Collection will help you enjoy bicycling more as well as keep your seen while doing it, during the darker, colder days of the year.
