New Balance Hi-viz– the apparel to be seen in.

A burst of color on the sleeve. An arresting stripe on the leg. While they may get you noticed during your run, those bold color bursts you’ll find on New Balance apparel are not just for show. They serve an important purpose – to help you be seen.

Hi-Viz accents are built into many items in the new NBx running apparel line. Combined with other reflective accents, they could help improve your visibility to others in low light conditions.

Look for tops in Vibrant Yellow for men, like the NewBalance’s men’s Icefil® Short Sleeve or Long Sleeve Top and NPShort Sleeve Top which provide front and back reflectivity. The men’s NBx Windblocker Tight and NP 9” Running Short also feature this attention-getting color.

In women’s, hot pink accents provide the same benefit. This bold and bright color can be found in the women’s NBX 2” short, NBx WeldedHalf-Zip, NBx Windblocker pant, NBx Welded Capri and NBx Adaptor Short Sleeve top.

But hi-viz accents aren’t just reserved for apparel. They’re also in many accessories, too – a big advantage during color weather running. From the Hatchback NB glove to New Balance Icy Arm Sleeves, vibrant yellow and shocking pink accents are hard to miss.

The Tri-Viz Running Cap is another low-light running favorite. In addition to hi-viz accents, it is built with powerful LED lights that light the path ahead.

And, like all New Balance running apparel and accessories, each piece is designed with moisture-wicking fabrics to keep you comfortable throughout your workout.

So the next time you’re admiring that color pop on your favorite apparel, feel good knowing it’s also working to help you stand out on the track or trail.
