Spidi Gear for ADVrider: hi-visibility in motorsport

Hi Chris.

Spidi has Design as one of its 3 focus: we combine Safety|Comfort|Design to maximize the ideal Motorsport Lifestyle.
Our use of colors has always been a benchmark in the market.
Color is important especially when touring in dusty/ dark places, in these cases color means Active Safety: lots of research prove that colors different than black (especially bright colors close to white) make rider more visible to cars.
So, yes we suggest the use of colors different than black in Touring Kits, like you can see here:

First Jacket

or here:

Venture Jacket

Moreover, Spidi has been researching a lot in the last 5 years to get a full line of hi-visibility items for motorcycle ride; Spidi interpreted these data and developed a line of products aimed at combining hi visibility with top on-the-bike performance.

Check the full Hi-Visibility line out clicking here , featuring CE En471 Certified fabrics and reflex that greatly increase active rider safety in poor visibility conditions, for example by allowing car drivers higher reaction times and levels of attention. the first item in this category has been the Flux Rainsuit (2005) , been followed by the revolutionary H1 Life Vest (2007) and culminating with the latest Voyager H2:

Voyager H2

Hope this has been enough to give you an idea of how much we care about color.

Thanks for your attention.
