At some time on your ride, the difference between being seen and being overlooked could prevent an accident. The best way to be seen by other road users is to wear apparel or accessories that include elements of reflectivity (of course, cycling lights also help!). Use the filters below to see the products that include low-light visibility elements.
Ride rain or shine
If your pre-ride glance out of the window is met by rain, or sullen looking skies, there is still no reason not to miss out on bike time! For most commutes, a weather resistant jacket is all you'll need, offering more breathability than a full water proof. However, when the rain really starts, full rain protection is a must, so be sure to check the product page details to see what attributes each item has.
Comfort, fit and function
City riding is all about blending into your surroundings, and great urban apparel will allow you to move from the bike to the office in style and in many cases, without necessitating a change of clothes. We've included some of our favourite pieces, including cycling jeans, commute specific trousers, shorts and jackets from only the very best city cycle clothing brands.
