Invisible by day, highly visible and effective when bicycling at night... It's not just any tie, it's the Retroreflector Tie.

It always helps to have options. So if you don’t care much for the style of the all-important clothing you need to wear when cycling, here is another option.

With the Retroreflector Tie, designed by Jasna Sokolovic and Noel O’Connell, safety meets fashion, or at least accessory. The duo decided to add a more-fun-than-functional item to an existing reflector collection for cyclists.

The tie is made using standard textiles that have been combined with reflective materials, incorporated into the pattern. An interesting addition to cycling garb, but what about something for the back?
