- best hi vis jacket to meet French standard? L2P
French law is that, outside urban areas cyclists must wear a certified reflective gilet at night or in conditions of reduced visibility. ( here http://www.securite-routiere.gouv.fr/conseils-pour-une-route-plus-sure/conseils-pratiques/circuler-a-velo/circuler-a-velo-roulez-en-toute-securite )
“Ccertified” means conforming to EN 1150, so flappy builders vest are OK, but if you’re actually going to be wearing it for more than a few kms something like the Decathlon or Ekoi vests will be more comfortable
Doesn’t have to be yellow btw – EN 1150 is just about reflectivity so pink, orange, green are OK tooPosted 3 years agonedrapierSubscriber
Do a google shopping search for “sportful reflective bretelle”
I bought one of these for winter commuting. I’ve got a few jackets that work nicely for cold/warm/mild wet/dry, none of them bike specific, and they all happen to be black.
This goes on top whichever’s best that day without adding bulk, warmth, restrictivness.Posted 3 years ago
