reflective tape??

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' at netrider.net.au started by Romus, Aug 3, 2006.

  1. Hey :)

    Last night i've seen a rider and that reminded me to ask here if there is some reflective tape avaliable to buy? This guy had strips across his back and i dont think the jacket came with them.



    The jacket I got is all black (yeh stupid I know) so would love to get some reflective tape (if there is such thing) to stick some strips across my front and back, maybe even boots.

    Thanks for any ideas :)

  2. Yeah, there is such stuff, Dad gave me a sample from his work "Wurth Australia"... they have red and yellow for sure, and I'm putting some on the backpack i use.

  3. Try a marine store, but even the stick on stuff wil need to be sewn on to material to keep it there.
    I like those work vests with the reflective tape already on them, cheapest way to do it, and easy to carry on the bike folded up too.

    Regards, Andrew.

  6. Supercheap Auto have it, in at least red and white.

    Guy at work got a black roll off ebay for his pushbike, said it worked really well.

  11. Spotlight stock it and its far cheaper than getting it from safety shops :)

    As someone mentioned, grab a safety vest with the reflective stuff already on it for $10

    Can't go wrong :)

    I might even grab a couple and print the netrider logo on them :)

  14. I bought some black reflective tape online from reflectivelyyours.com.

    I placed the order on a Thursday, and the tape was in my letterbox the next Tuesday - from New York. :shock: Can't fault the service, although the stuff wasn't exactly cheap.

    Not surprisingly it doesn't reflect as well as white tape, but if you have a black bike, black gear and black helmet it's not a bad way to improve your chances of being seen without making yourself look like a total dork.
