Reflective materials only work when light shines directly on them. Adaptiv Technologies’ new GlowRider jacket uses electro-luminescent (EL) technology to make riders visible whether light is shining on them or not, significantly increasing nighttime visibility.
Powered by a rechargeable lithium battery hidden in the sleeve, the EL panels will glow for 10-plus hours on full charge. Passive reflective material augments the EL panels. Waterproof, with adjustable waist and sleeve straps, map/smartphone wrist pockets, CE armor and zip-out liner. $299.
