They may be a month late for Halloween, but 3T are rolling out a range of glow in the dark components to make sure you're seen at night.

Whether it’s the desire to be visible on the roads after dark, or some sort of 1980s fashion flashback, there’s no doubting the fact that hi-vis is the colour to be seen in this winter. And now your bike can follow the trend, with 3T’s new range of glow in the dark components.

IONIC LUMIA_YELLOW

The 3T Ionic-25 seat post is fully carbon and hits the scales at 185g

If most clothing companies had been content to keep the hi-vis fairly subtle, as with the dhb Blok Fluoro bibtights, there’s no escaping the brightness of the new Illumina finish which 3T are making available for some of their top-end components.

Assuming you’re not keen on being lit up like a Christmas tree for 24 hours a day, you’ll be glad to know that the Illumina finish is invisible in normal light, appearing as bright white paint. However in low light conditions the components are transformed, glowing in the dark to illuminate the front and rear of the bike.

ARX LUMIA_LIGHT BLUE

The 3T Arx stem weighs in at a claimed 118g for the 110mm option

The finish is a custom option available on company’s top-end Ergonova bars, Arx stem, and Ionic-25 seat post, which will be priced at €345 (£273), €270 (£213), and €235 (£185) respectively.

    That’s a lot of money for components you’d ride around in the dark regularly.
