Pedaled has released its new Hikari Reflective Collection in stores and online.
The collection which includes a jacket, hat and gloves, is designed to complement the brand’s existing range of cycling jackets and leisure and adventure products.
The cycle-specific range is fully reflective, waterproof and has internally taped seams.
Jacopo Porreca, Pedaled brand manager, said: “When designing the Hikari Jacket we had two objectives in mind: to make riders visible ‘our way’, like no other reflective jacket before and to keep them dry during their winter rides at night or during the day.
“This is why we developed a new idea, inspired by city lights at night.
“The all-over reflective print on both sides of the jacket, stuck to the most visible parts of the upper body, can be seen clearly by car lights.
“But this wasn’t enough for us. This is why we combined the new reflective technology with a totally waterproof rain jacket, taped seams and two big mesh cargo pockets.
“This jacket was tested in the hardest conditions during the Transcontinental Race and the Silk Road Mountain Race and turned out to be an essential item for any time the riders need to be seen, whether that be in long distance riding, commuting or training.”
