Madera Kalama – reflective clothing for race track

Although Madera is mainly associated with textile clothing of reflective material, it also has an interesting collection of leather garments. Among this year's news, there are also proposals in this line. An example of this is dedicated to Kalama fans.


Kalama is a South African legendary race track. The name of the Medici set is not the case. We have a lot of sports accents that work well with tasteful, unadorned design. The fit is fine, but that does not translate to a lack of comfort at all. All thanks to flexible inserts that can be found wherever you need the most freedom of movement. Kevlar® elastic panels are in the reflective jacket, with Corduroy® Stretch trousers in the trousers. The whole is complemented by elastic leather elements. Thanks to that even a day out on the route will not cause the slightest problem.


High level of safety and protection when in contact with the ground provide:

    Face of bovine skin thickness 1.2-1.4 mm

    Full set of certified Tec protectors

    Plastic reinforcement with titanium inserts on shoulders, elbows and knees

    Interchangeable sliders on the shin


There is no forgetting about active safety: both the jacket and the trousers are equipped with sophisticatedly reflective fabric inserts.

Dueling on the track or on hot urban streets often gets hot. Here comes the Air vent ventilation system in the jacket and the previously mentioned breathable Corduroy® Stretch in the trousers. The whole is finished from the bottom nice to the touch and drain the sweat mesh. The jacket can be attached to the trousers by means of two or more locks (short or long) sewn on elastic panels, creating a comfortable and well-suited suit.

Reflective clothing make student look better on road

The tragic accident has led to a discussion about school safety in the whole country. A safety vest can protect children effect on the road near school. The OVB home teams have been talking about this with Stefan Sonntag, press officer at the police department south.


* The death of the nine-year-old boy shakes the entire county. If you look at the figures of the past years, how safe are the school paths in the region?

In view of the fact that several thousand pupils are on their way every day on foot, by bicycle, with school buses, as co-drivers in their parents' cars, the number of school-leaving accidents is very low.


* Are the school paths on the countryside more dangerous than in larger cities and municipalities?

This question cannot be answered on a general basis. In the urban area, the pupils are concentrated in appearance, which results in the large number of school-leaving accidents in the city. In the country, on the other hand, the pupils are widely distributed, but - as in all traffic accidents - the accident sequences can be more severe than in urban areas due to higher speeds.


* How do the police contribute to school road safety in the context of their preventive activities, regardless of the routine priorities at the school year?

Regardless of the focus of the school inspections at the beginning of the school year, we are providing training for school goers, schoolchildren and school bus attendants. We give advice, conduct the youth transport school, and prepare children's nursery school children for their school path. In particular in the case of school luncheon accidents, an analysis of the accidents is carried out by the experts of the police. We also carry out school bus inspections and school bus driver seminars.


* What should parents do to ensure that their children come to school as safely as possible?

The shortest way is sometimes not the safest way to school. Parents should leave the path with their children and help with cross-aiding in the choice of the path. They should explain danger points and accompany their children and also observe them on the way to school. The child should leave the house in time and not be driven to a hurry. Parents should also tell the child that even drivers can make mistakes and a car has a braking distance. Especially in bad weather or darkness, the child should wear eye-catching, reflective vest and colored clothing to make it look better.

Special conditions require special clothing

Winter has it that in itself is that it is much colder. Therefore, you should wear clothing on your bike; the course takes primarily on this aspect into consideration. Clothing from a warming reflective material is important. You must also protect against sleet. Guests must a waterproof and windproof bike jacket, winter pants and matching gloves get. Also an additional headgear you should not miss, as the majority of body heat is lost through the head as well. So apply a cloth or a special helmet cap with fleece. This enough heat is retained.


Against the onion technique the cold has no chance

It is most meaningful to access the onion technique even when the bicycle is clothing. Retire to functional underwear on, about a winter trousers and a functional jersey. Also think of your feet. On thick socks you should not do without. Also make sure that the outermost clothing has flashy colors. Most suitable course garments are that can reflect.

Walking to school with reflective clothing

And every day the traffic jokes greets the schools. Every morning the same picture: the parental School taxi brings the next generation to school. Stop - partly also in the second row, daughter or son-man get off and continue without any reflective equipment.


At the Dr. Pfeiffer in Schweinfurt, this hectic hustle and bustle day can be observed, whether the sun is shining or whether it is raining.

This is exactly what the headmaster of the Dr. Pfeiffer Schweinfurt, Mrs. Pensile, and the two traffic educators of the police inspectorate Schweinfurt, police chief Rupert and chief police chief Kraft, took to the occasion of the action week "Walking to school".


With this action the children of all classes got a "to-foot-to-school-stamped". They were given a stamp every day when they walked to school and stamped it at one of the checkpoints. Members of the Parent's Advisory Board or teachers occupied the inspection posts. They proudly presented it to the two traffic educators with the already collected motif stamps. After the end of the action, a reward will be waiting for the most diligent pedestrian class.


There was no reward, however, for the parents who still brought their offspring to school by car. "We slept," a hectic mother said. Quickly buy the visibly tired son's husband at the baker a breakfast, and then push the book into his hand, into the car and go. The students of the Pestalozzi School gave the hurrying mother a red card by reflective material before she drove off!


On the red card, the unmistakable message "Red card! Join us! On foot to school! "Kraft, the transport instructor, gave the hurried mother the important advice:" Be an example! The best way to prevent accidents is by using good examples! Accompany your child walking to school and give him behavior tips ".


Especially now in the autumn and winter days, where the school paths are increasingly in the dark in the morning, it is important for the traffic novices to behave properly in road traffic. Especially important is bright and reflective clothing! Roads are only to be crossed at the secured crossroads, according to the two traffic educators.

Protect your little ones with reflective clothing

In winter, children are particularly badly visible to drivers. The saying 'a lot helps a lot' applies completely in this case - so protect your little ones with reflective clothing:

Children on the way to school have to be easily visible to drivers in autumn and winter, because they are small and drivers are therefore less likely to recognize them. Bright clothes in bright colors are therefore important. Jacket, pants or skirt and helmet should also be richly equipped with reflectors. Generous reflections are provided on the satchel for striking rays. Standards and the GS mark are an indication of good quality. This is indicated by the municipal accident insurance company Bavaria and the Bavarian State Disaster Fund.


Light cones move from the bottom to the top

The light cone of a moving car "travels" from bottom to top. For this reason, reflectors in the lower part of the body are particularly important, for example in the form of Velcro straps for calves or ankles. A reflective jacket or coat should be reflectors on the sides, front and rear. "The saying 'a lot helps a lot' is true here," says Elmer Leader, Managing Director of KUVB and Bayer. The more reflectors a child carries, the more likely it is for the driver and can react appropriately. "


The quality makes the difference

Satchel wear reflectors as standard, but they differ in size and quality. Parents should pay attention to large reflective surfaces, as well as spread and reflection. They indicate how strongly and from which angle incident beams are thrown back. Since such details are difficult to test in the shop, it is worthwhile to read tests like the Sifting Warn test on the properties of reflectors. Indicators for quality are also the seal for certified safety (GS test mark) and the German industry standard (DIN) 58124. It stipulates that at least ten percent of the back and sides of a school rucksack must be made of retro reflective material. Thirdly, the EU standard EN 13356 regulates the light properties of reflectors. These data are usually found in the satchel itself or on a leaflet.


No parent taxis to school

Worried parents should not make a mistake: drive their children to school. Because driving is not always the safest option, and it is important that children get exercise and fresh air. In addition, they train their perceptions and responses on every route the pupils themselves cover.

Sport or work of functional reflective clothing

In winter, the weather is not bad, but bad clothes. And it is up to each of us, whether we choose to sport or work of functional reflective clothing and will feel even in large the storm comfortably, or will prefer clothes from conventional materials, which quickly and easily from cold working up a sweat.

In functional clothing is important to choose a fiber structure of the fabric. Fibers determine the speed of removal of moisture, moisture absorption resulting fabric, fast drying and coloring, dyeing and printing option, the degree of abrasion, pilling and shrinkage.

Weave structure determines the degree of thermal insulation, measure hold moisture, drying speed, mechanical properties and intensity up process.

"The properties of individual fibers in combination with different bonds or mutual combination of fibers and links allow you to create the final knitted for different climatic conditions and physical stress," says Miloslav in a safety vest.

Natural materials, today called renewable, used since time immemorial. The most famous cotton and wool can now be complemented by viscose and bamboo fiber. Their usefulness is proven in various climatic conditions over many centuries. But we cannot individually meet today's requirements we expect from fiber - must be light, strong, flexible, pleasant to the touch, non-absorbent, must drain the water well, also must cool in summer and warm in winter, be thermally inert. Must be resistant to bacteria, fungi and insects and must be well maintained.

Natural materials but have compared the synthetic fiber of high water absorption. Exceptions are primarily produces wave that during high water absorption is not cold unless nevypotíte more than it can hold. Body moisture is stored in the fiber structure and evaporates very slowly. It's the same speed as the drying after washing.

Merino breed of sheep wool is very soft and the fibers 14-16 microns are acceptable even for sensitive skin. Thicker fibers are not suitable for the production of laundry. Wool absorbs odors and has self-cleaning ability, to fibers nechytají dust or dirt. Current technologies are able to better categorize wave and only the longest fibers are then made quality yarn.

Reflective Running Jacket - With 450 lux is immense. The outer material jacket reflects incident light and thus ensures greater safety while jogging. Jacket repels water and does not restrict movement. Highly functional jackets not only for snowboard manufactured in the Czech Republic. Quality workmanship is complemented by high water column 20000 mm H2O.

The drivers with reflective clothing waiting

   "Once you know that you are driving along the highway in the opposite direction, immediately turn on all the lights including warning you to be good to see, because the car traveling in the opposite direction on the motorway none of the drivers with safety clothing waiting, as quickly and as safely slide into the emergency lane on the highway, where it goes. The car then quickly leaves and calls the police, "said Vaclav Irking.
    Police spokesman Martin Koran ova added that the driver should have a reflective vest and all the crew must quickly get to safety. That means a minimum of guardrail at the edge of the highway, better still is on the slope above the highway, if there is one.
    "It is important to call the police so they could be held as soon as possible and ensure safety on the highway," said Martina Koran ova.
    Officers warned against attempts to turn on the highway
    Traffic policeman with reflective uniform Vaclav Koura warns against attempting to turn right on the highway or in the opposite direction to try to reach the nearest highway exit. In addition, it smacks of an accident with serious to tragic consequences, are waiting for a driver's conduct strict penalties.
    "To ride in the opposite direction or turning on a highway seven penalties, cases are handled in administrative proceedings, and financial penalties in addition there is also a ban on activity," says Koura.
    Warn others of a car traveling on a highway in the wrong direction should try and drivers themselves. When you see such a car, turn on the hazard lights, slow down and drive the car mostly in the right lane.
    "If the car with reflective tape hands free and through on such a car immediately inform the police. Call anyone from the vehicle. It is better if the police on a car traveling in the wrong direction on the highway warn more people than if they did not call anyone, "she added Koran ova.

The visibility of motorcyclists with reflective clothing

News - Published Tuesday, February 23, 2016 at 19:45 by James Vidal
You do not have put your yellow reflective vest under the seat to prevent the plum of Control? Axe Club 14 and give you a chance to fall in line with 30,000 vests soon be available in branches and on their website. An offer which is, we believe, half good news.
Axe Prevention and Club 14, emanations of the insurance company Axe France, distribute, from 1 to 31 March 2016, 30 000 high visibility vests for motorcyclists and scooter riders. This operation, designed according to the organizers to remember the importance of being seen motorcycle delight those who are reluctant to acquire Vest said despite the contravention threat of Control. It will at the same time cringe those who feel that the wearing or carrying of fluorescent jacket and retro reflective is the responsibility of everyone, without requiring legislation.
30,000 offered yellow vests. Yes, but…
After years of maneuvering on the part of government, a decree made the possession of a retro-reflective vest mandatory motorcycle since 1 January 2016. In case of non-submission of this vest with reflective tape, fine (1st class) is 38 € (minus 11 €). We have published several articles about this obligation; we let you read our review about it.
Highlighting the safety of motorcyclists, Prevention and Axe Club 14 will therefore proceed with the free distribution of 30 000 of these jackets in the Axe Group agencies but also online since 7500 vests will be available via the website from 1 March.
We will spare you all the copied statements in the press release. A sentence has, however, we pounce. Serge Morella, President of Club 14, says "Club 14 since 2013 emphasizes the need to be more visible and give drivers the means to more easily identify the two wheels; it appears natural to us to support this measure of detention of a safety vest while leaving the rider or user of a two-wheeler decide under what conditions they must wear.”
AVIMOTO Study: A motorcycle embedded in the visual noise of fires journey sentence which is also yellow smile vest given that Club 14 was not really opposed to the systematization of daytime running lights on cars while experts on the subject agree on the dangers of this measure makes the motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians less visible and therefore vulnerable (see our article on AVIMOTO).
Improving the visibility of motorcyclists with reflective clothing is an initiative that we cannot really condemn. However, so much energy it would be deployed to train drivers to be aware of their surroundings and the most fragile.
One point on which insurance largely has the means to intervene to its members, without telling them that bikers are the ones who drive too fast...

Reflective clothing is essential in winter

Old, slim and terribly sensitive: bikes for urban transport have considerable show values. But for the German winter they are not created. In Encyclopedia of the good life, there are tips on how man and bicycle stay healthy and heal even in the cold season. First of all, warm safety clothing with reflective tape is essential in winter.

Just do not say Fixit. Mortimer is a personal concern, I expel this trivialization. "It is Fixed Gear. Fixit, that sounds stupid, "the owner of the bicycle shop Kieran says in Berlin Kreutzer. His shop sees itself as a" Cycle Cafe Culture ", not as a mere workshop plus spare parts inventory. In front salesroom there is drinks and Fachpalaver, hanging on the walls classic steel frames from Italy and rare stamps with two wheel designs. Mortimer colleague Gary Graham is in the rear showroom in the saddles. I think a wonderful specimen high, white with tiny holes in the leather. "The saddle is nice, but not necessarily suitable for the winter," says Gary.

Too bad also, but I'm here to get some advice. Last winter was added my bike pretty, moisture and road salt goodness I had to replace some parts. I want to know how I can protect myself better not only my bike, but, prior to smoothness, cold and now - when something is in bicycles - aquaplaning. Warm reflective jacket was taken by me when ride bike. I put the white leather saddle with the holes on the shelf.
