‘Be Safe, Be Seen’ as the nights draw in with two new products added to Ultimate Performance’s reflective product range.
According to the Office for National Statistics, and hardly a surprise, the darker months see a higher rate of accidents for pedestrians, runners and cyclists, with fatal accidents more likely to occur during the hours of darkness. Poor weather is to blame too, with fog, mist and grey cloudy days all something we have to deal with in the winter months.
But it isn’t all gloom and doom. Ultimate Performance has long addressed the visibility issue by helping to keep people seen with its range of hi vis accessories.
Whether for training, commuting to work, doing the school run or simply walking the dog, staying safe by keeping yourself visible to others is essential.
New for AW22
Ultimate Performance Stile Reflective Run Vest
This light, slimline vest offers highly visible detailing as well as total freedom of movement with fully adjustable waist and shoulder straps. The phone compartment on the front is easily accessible via a slip down window for quick and easy access to the screen while you’re on the move with minimum loss of concentration. It’s also water resistant and ultra-lightweight.
LED rear lights with constant or flash mode keep the wearer visible for up to half a mile away. The easily replaceable battery will last up to 144 hours in flash mode and 72 hours if set to constant mode.
One size. Available in black or fluorescent yellow.
Ultimate Performance Ease LED Waist Pack
It’s rare to leave the house without phone or keys but awkward items to carry if running. The new Ease Waist pack ticks two boxes: safely houses small items while also acting as a hi-vis accessory, keeping you visible to others for up to half a mile.
This is thanks to LED lights which can be set to constant or flash mode and powered by a fully rechargeable battery (USB and cable supplied)
The Ultimate Performance Ease LED is also water resistant making it ideal for the unpredictable weather, and is expandable to fit with no-bounce for anyone upping the pace.
Sizes 26”- 42”

Always designed with performance in mind, the fabric also wicks moisture to keep you cool and comfortable.
The small but clever Eddystone Clip-On LED can be can be set to constant or flash mode and is easily attached to backpacks, clothing and bike frames.
Reflective Elastic Laces are a step in the right direction, combining an incredibly tough elastic bungee cord with a spring-loaded lock to keep them securely in place while featuring a highly visible fleck to throw off a reflective glow which helps keep you seen with every stride. They are available in a variety of bright colour choices and each are designed to be trimmed to fit any shoe if needed.
