Tuvizo will release the first article in a series of three this week discussing the best gear athletes can wear to be seen.
The article that Tuvizo is releasing discusses runners and their different profiles and how reflective gear can best be used by them to ensure they are seen when out on the road. There are lots of products available on the market, choosing the right product can be a challenge when faced with so much information.
Tuvizo discusses the different reflective materials that are available in the high visibility and reflective market and how some of the technology works in order to increase visibility of the garments, and therefore the wearer.
It is difficult to make a decision on a personal choice of reflective gear when faced with such a surfeit of information as there is in this market. This article tries to provide the basic information that is required by a runner in order to make an informed decision.
Tuvizo's Marketing Manager, Jo says, "Runners do not always realise quite how important wearing reflective and high visibility gear is. Runners can be seen by drivers up to 3 seconds sooner when wearing proper reflective or high vis gear. A car travelling at 45 miles per hour will travel 60 metres in 3 seconds. That is the difference between life and death. Wearing a running reflective vest can make that difference, why would you not take the time to wear reflective?"
Tuvizo are a small niche company that specialises in reflective and high visibility gear. The company was started by a couple of people that are passionate about running and cycling and believed there was a gap in the market for truly comfortable yet effective reflective and high visibility gear.
The company is launching this article series as an ongoing campaign in order to raise awareness of the importance of using high visibility and reflective gear.
