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.
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.
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.
