Visibly Stylish

We’ve taken our strategic partnership with 3M even further to develop 360° Enhanced Rider Visibility Gear exclusively for Harley-Davidson. Designed with safety in mind, our riding gear with strategically placed 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material makes a rider recognizable from nearly every viewing angle from up to 500 feet, in clear low-light or nighttime riding conditions. This technology is available in leathers, functional outerwear, rain gear, and gloves. You’ll never look better in functional and stylish riding gear with greater visibility, all around.

360 Enhanced Visibility Gear

Hi-Vis Gear

Behind the Technology

Ordinary, non-reflective fabrics disperse light in all directions when illuminated by a light source, such as a vehicle’s headlight. 3M’s proprietary retroflective material incorporates thousands of microscopic glass beads or prisms to reflect a much higher portion of that light straight back to the source!

This allows riders to be more visible from much greater distances when riding at night or in low-light conditions.

Light rays reflected back to the original source - the motorist - resulting in retroreflection.
