Winter is coming…
And with the clocks set to roll back at the end of October, those long summer days are about to become a distant memory as daylight gets squeezed from either end.
According to the Office for National Statistics, the darker months result in a higher rate of accidents for pedestrians, runners and cyclists, with fatal accidents more likely to occur during the hours of darkness.
It’s not just dark that leaves many vulnerable, poor weather conditions in the hours of daylight also make it difficult to be seen by other too.
But it doesn’t have to be all gloom and doom!
Ultimate Performance have long lit up the winter months with their collection of bright, reflective ideas, all designed to keep you as safe and seen as possible and all easily worn or attached to your outdoor kit.
New to the collection this winter is the Ultimate Performance Stile Run Vest boasting LED rear lights with constant or flash mode to ensure the wearer is visible for up to half a mile with an impressive 144 hours of flash and 72 hours on constant mode and is easily replaceable when it runs out. A handy phone compartment to the front is easily accessible via a flip down window to enable quick access on the move.
Another new addition is The Ultimate Performance Ease LED Waistbag rrp £18 Ideal for runners, hikers, commuters or dog walkers, a hi-viz light keeps the wearer visible for up to half a mile with a constant or flash mode powered by a fully rechargeable battery.
