Proviz – the specialist in light-emitting and reflective cycling, running and outdoor apparel – has launched a new edition to its Nightrider collection, the Nightrider LED Cycling Jacket. The new Nightrider LED Cycling Jacket is the first in the brand range to incorporate machine washable LED lights into the jacket to aid with visibility at night and early morning.
The jacket has three white LED lights on each forearm, and five red LED lights on the lower back. The lights are powered by a small USB rechargeable battery pack housed in a tailored inside pocket. The battery pack is operated from the outside (so no need to unzip the jacket) with a touch of a button that allows the user to choose from three different lighting modes; flash, fast flash and constant.
Anthony Langly-Smith, co-founder of Proviz, said “We are really excited to launch this new jacket into the Nightrider collection. It’s our first jacket that incorporates high-powered LED lights. The lights are built into the arms and back of your jacket and are driven by a USB rechargeable battery pack to help aid with your visibility at night and in the early hours of the morning.”
Aside from the lights, the jacket is designed to have a more fitted cut than the original Nightrider jacket; and it is manufactured from comfortable polyester pongee material, which gives improved breathability (10,000gm/24hr) and waterproofing (10,000mm and seam-sealed). The jacket also has an inside soft-touch mesh for added comfort along with multiple pockets, underarm zipped & shoulder vents, adjustable cuffs, plenty of reflective panels and waterproof zips.
The jacket is available in both male and female designs and will retail at £124.99.
