Proviz REFLECT360 CRS (Colour Reflective System) Cycling Jacket.
Proviz is the specialist in designing enhanced visibility cycling clothing to help cyclists be seen more easily on the roads during hours of low light or darkness.
Over the past two and half years, Proviz has created a game-changing range of products called REFLECT360. Its popularity is ever-increasing and is now sold in over 40 countries and was the #1 best-selling cycling jacket on Amazon UK during winter 2015/2016.
Our customers love the original REFLECT360 range and we enjoy hearing feedback through our facebook, twitter and instagram channels. Resulting from this feedback, the challenge was set by our customers to create the same amazingly reflective product in multiple different colours. This has been tough due to reflective material only traditionally being available in grey... until now! We have worked tirelessly over the past 18 months to deliver this unique product to Kickstarter, which we've called the REFLECT360 CRS Cycling Jacket. CRS = Colour Reflective System.
The REFLECT360 CRS (Colour Reflective System) cycling jacket is the world's first cycling jacket that comes in 5 vibrant colours and looks stylish and unassumingly 'normal' by day, but shines like a beacon when caught in a vehicle's headlights at night. This jacket takes innovation in the cycling apparel market to a new level and gives customers what they have requested; normal, everyday colours for use during daylight hours, and total reflectivity at night.
How does it work?
The special material which the complete outer shell is made from has millions of tiny reflective glass beads embedded within it. When a vehicle's headlights hit the jacket, the millions of beads reflect back the light to the light source, i.e. the driver, meaning the cyclist becomes a bright white beacon on the road ahead of the vehicle, so the vehicle's driver can react in advance and manoeuvre appropriately.
The Next Generation Cycling Jacket - Delivered first to Kickstarter
We have the knowledge, expertise, supply chain and logistics channels already in place to deliver this type of highly innovative product. As a result of our experience in manufacturing the hugely successful original REFELCT360 range (reviews below), we understand how long the product will take to manufacture and when we will be able deliver it to all Kickstarters that wish to pledge and be one of the first to receive one of our new jackets.
We are an International Award-Winning Sports Brand, distributed in 40 countries and we have the largest range of specialist enhanced visibility sports products on the market. We are renowned for innovation and quality.
It was all started in a small flat in London by two brothers in 2008. At the time, they were working in corporate jobs in London and it was during their daily commutes by bike to work that they realised the limitations of the products they were using. They identified a gap in the market to provide highly innovative, light-emitting and reflective cycling products. Inspired by their experiences (good and bad!) and, with no prior retail or product manufacturing experience, they designed a small number of innovative cycling products. It took a lot of time and research to identify and engage the correct manufacturers but the founders had a desire to push innovation and product development in a niche area where they believed it was missing. The founders set about building a brand that would address this need, synonymous with innovation and performance. Most importantly, the desire was to create products that customers loved and that made a difference in their lives.
The material we use is certified to CE EN 20471, which makes certain that the material is of the highest reflective quality. You don't just get a strip of reflective material in the REFLECT360 CRS, you get a whole jacket made out of it!
Thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges
We don't want to blow our own trumpet, but we have brought many products successfully to the market and we know what we're doing! Pledges from Kickstarters are going to allow us to speed up the delivery process and get the product to market around the world much quicker than we'd normally be able to. We usually have an initial launch of a new product range in a small number of countries but with Kickstarter followers' help, we'll be able to deliver this product worldwide to all our customers in time for winter.
We will deliver all goods resulting from Kickstarter pledges in time for the coming winter, when they'll really be required!
You can be confident that we'll deliver on our promise and we'll ensure every customer is super happy with their brand new Proviz product they purchase through Kickstarter.
Should any unexpected issues arise, you have our word that we'll deal with them with the utmost care and transparency for our backers.
Supply Chain Risk: We're incredibly proud of our supply chain. We have had it in place for over 7 years and we have complete confidence that it will function like it always has. Like a well-oiled machine!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
