Last weekend the clocks went back and here in the UK we’re preparing for those commutes that begin and end in darkness 🙁 . But it doesn’t have to be as gloomy as it sounds.
We’ve been looking at some cool products that will not only make sure you’re seen (and safe) on an electric bike but will also brighten up your day!
Cycle Safe, Cycle Visible
All VOLT™ bikes come with high powered LED lights which are powered by the bike battery and are maintenance free. When it comes to cycling on the road, we think cyclists should make themselves as visible as possible. Here’s some of our favourite accessories to make sure you get seen.
Our Top 5 Hi Vis Cycle Accessories
1. Proviz REFLECT360 Cycling Jacket
If you thought hi vis jackets were all about vibrant oranges and loud yellows, think again. This jacket is not just revolutionizing cycle safety clothing, it’s making it fashionable!
It’s the first ever jacket to made up of 100% reflective material on the outer shell. During the day, this lightweight waterproof jacket looks like a matte grey overcoat, at night it becomes highly reflective and extremely visible. Designed with the cycling enthusiast in mind the Proviz REFLECT360 is well ventilated and has well placed pockets for storing items like maps.

2. I-SHOTS™ Reflective Stickers
These highly reflective stickers are great for customising you bike, bag, cycle helmet or clothing. You can get them in 5 different cutout shapes and can be easily stuck to both hard surfaces and soft fabrics. Not only are they brilliant at increasing visibility, we think they’re pretty good fun too!
