As the days get shorter, we runners, cyclists and other outdoor sport lovers increasingly find ourselves out there in lightless early mornings and evenings. Fortunately, there is a whole range of shoes, gear and apparel designed with new reflective technology guaranteed we will be seen in the dark. The Nike Flash Pack includes a range of shoes, jackets, tights and accessories created specifically for running. The Nike Allover Flash Running Jacket features a glass-beaded exterior that produces 360 degrees of 400-candlepower reflectivity for enhanced visibility. As seen in the picture above, and in all the other items featured here, it glows like flash bulb when light hits it.
Currently available from Puma as well is a new collection of running shoes and apparel that use reflectivity as both a safety and a design element. While the Faas 100 R Stealth Running Shoes and Pure Nightcat Jacket may appear muted in color by day, they illuminate with patterns and graphics sure to be seen under passing headlight beams by night. In addition, the Asics Lite-Show, Saucony ViZiPro and Nathan TorchLight collections all include performance driven shoes, apparel and gear created to keep you in the light even when it’s dark.
In addition to reflectivity, the pieces in all these collection are made for cold weather running. They are warm and breathable, wind and weather resistant, designed to keep you out there enjoying those outdoor sports even when the weather might try to keep you indoors.
