ProViz Reflect 360 Cycling Jacket

Being seen is a hot topic in today’s night riding world and there are many companies working to been seen more effectively, such as ProViz. The Reflect360 cycling jacket is the world’s first to be designed using a 100% reflective outer-shell. The jacket’s high quality material is designed to look and feel great while keeping the weather out. The reflective capability of the material helps other road users to identify a cyclist’s position on the road at night giving them extra time to react and maneuver appropriately.

Reynolds RZR 46 Tubular

Reynolds Composite Studio is the Utah ­based brand’s elite carbon fiber laboratory where, spearheaded by composite wheel pioneer Paul Lew, carbon fiber is carefully molded into the all­ carbon RZR 46 Tubular wheelset. There is a lot of wild technology packed into the RZR wheels, but you only need to know four things about them: a pair weighs under 900 grams; the carbon fiber hubs, spokes and rims are bonded into a one ­piece structure; they cost more than a pro racing bike; and they are foolishly fast.
