Six white LED lights are integrated into the product, allowing athletes to see — and be seen – in low-light conditions. There are 3 light settings which can be set to flash, on and off. Pieces include unisex arm sleeves, headbands and wristbands in stylish prints and solid colors, men’s training hat and visor and women’s training hat and visor.

,NiteBlaze Reflective gear – A new patented technology is screen printed onto the fabric in this collection, providing 360° all-over visibility.
