The mornings are dark, the evenings are drawing in, and a lot of people already have to don their brights and lights for the daily commute.
High-visibility options like fluorescent colours, Scotchlite reflective material and lights can all make you stand out when riding your bike, and are worth considering. Online retailer and manufacturer PROVIZ specialise in hi-vis sportswear, covering everything from jackets and bags through to lights, helmets and hats.
Set up in 2009 by a pair of cycling enthusiast brothers, PROVIZ aim to meet the need for ‘affordable, light-emitting, bright and visible cycling accessories’.
One key element of PROVIZ kit, apart from the ample reflective detailing, is the opportunity to integrate light-emitting devices such as the TRIVIZ. This is a triangular flashing light that attaches easily to items like their Nightrider rucksacks and jackets.
As well as stocking their own products, the PROVIZ shop sells a range of items by other manufacturers such as Knog, and the company have recently branched out into producing kit for other sports like running and horse riding.
We’ve got a selection of kit to have a gander at, so here are our first impressions before they go off for product testing. Whether you want a full jacket, or prefer to opt for hi-vis accents rather than the whole shebang, PROVIZ have something for you.
