When cycling, it's important to wear the proper armour and clothing to protect yourself from injuries. Cycling armour is typically made from Kevlar or other strong synthetic materials. It is designed to absorb the impact of a fall or collision and can help to prevent or minimise serious injuries. Common types of cycling armour include helmets, gloves, elbow and knee pads, and body armour.
In addition to cycling-specific armour, it's also important to wear brightly coloured clothing that makes you visible to other road users. This is especially important when cycling in traffic. By wearing the proper cycling gear, you can help to keep yourself safe on the road. To increase how visible you are whilst riding – and therefore, your safety – take a look at our bike lights to make sure others can see you on night rides.
