Proviz, the specialist in light-emitting and reflective cycling, running and outdoor products, has introduced new cycling products to its REFLECT360 collection for the winter season, including new entries to the brand’s children’s collection.
New to the 2018/19 season, the REFLECT360 Performance Cycling Jacket has a new slimline fit. Focusing on fit and comfort, Proviz notes that the jacket has the ‘same soft-touch, moisture-wicking mesh lining to increase airflow, while fitting to your body more like a cycling jersey.’ The Performance Cycling Jacket is available for both men and women and retails for £99.99.
Following on in the new and improved performance range, the REFLECT360 Performance Gilet has the same fitted, aerodynamic improvements afforded to the Performance Cycling Jacket. The fitted shoulders help reduce cool air getting locked into the body, ‘while the bar arms make it an ideal piece for twilight riding before the weather takes a turn for the worst’. Available for men and women, with an RRP of £74.99.
The REFLECT360 Dry Bag is positioned as ‘the ideal companion for cycling in the wettest of weather’. Proviz notes that it’s 100% waterproof, with an IPX8 class rating, ‘meaning it’s dry-tight when fully submerged’. The 28-litre capacity affords space for commuting and for long weekend rides throughout the winter, and the retro-reflective material gives 360-degree reflectivity. The roll-top and clip-closure bag has easy accessibility, and an inside pocket to keep all core valuables dry and secure. The REFLECT360 Dry Bag will RRP for £69.99.
New for the 2018/19 season, the REFLECT360 arm and leg warmers are ‘warm and cozy on the inside, luxurious from the outside’. Proviz adds that they give multi-season warmth and versatility and are manufactured using high-quality fabric to help ensure comfort and softness to keep limbs warm on colder days. They also have anti-slip silicone bands and strategically positioned reflective chevrons to help ensure limbs catch the attention of drivers when out on the roads when it’s dark. The REFLECT360 Leg Warmers RRP at £24.99 and the Arm Warmers at £19.99.
The Nightrider Jacket has also been upgraded for the new season. The design combines the highly reflective REFLECT360 material with a high-spec visible, waterproof and breathable fabric. Proviz points to highly breathable (10,000 gm/24hr) material to help keep riders at an optimal temperature as well as waterproofing (10,000mm) to ‘ensure you’ll stay dry but any excess moisture will be able to easily escape.’ The jacket is available in men’s and women’s sizes with an RRP of £74.99 and in children’s sizes (with fleece lining) for £44.99.
Anthony Langly-Smith, co-founder of Proviz, said “The REFLECT360 collection is our best-selling range and we are really excited to add these new items for the new season which will help to increase the depth of our offering. All our products use premium materials and have new design features which will help riders stand out with safety and style. Millions of reflective beads are woven into the material giving it astonishing reflectivity.”
