Reflective Gloves And Socks For Cyclists

Reflective Gloves And Socks (Images courtesy SUCK UK)
By Andrew Liszewski

Riding a bike in a big city during the day is dangerous enough, but when the sun goes down at night you better make sure you’re as visible as possible to motorists who are already pretty annoyed at having to share the road with you. And while you probably shouldn’t exclusively rely on these to make yourself stand out while riding, SUCK UK’s reflective gloves and socks are a good start.

The socks feature a reflective patch on the pack that becomes visible once you’ve tucked your pant legs into them, while the gloves, which seem a bit more useful to me, feature a reflective arrow on the back making your hand signals extra visible to vehicular traffic behind you. Both are available in a one-size-fits-all unisex design, with each pair costing ~$24 (£15) which is a small price to pay for a bit of extra safety.

    so i get a pair of socks, and use them, and the next day i need another pair, so i cant just have one because i will be doing laundry every day… why will someone do this if there are velcro reflective bands that were invented many years ago???
