Reflective particles turn brilliant white when light is shone directly on them

Proviz has announced the launch of its Reflect360 helmet that turns bright white when light is shone directly at it.

The Germany-made helmet uses what’s called the KStar reflective system with reflective particles embedded into the microshell covering. The reflective particles are protected by a clear outer casing.

The helmet has a pearl grey colour in daylight, but becomes brilliant white when caught in direct light from other road users.

The helmet features Proviz’s Quicksafe headring fit system with two independent LED flashing lights for additional visibility.

The Reflect360 Helmet is, of course, certified to European CE EN 1078 standards and it is priced at £79.99.
