Lin Mfg. Reflectorz Socks Keep Cyclists and Runners Safe

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, in 2003, bicycle deaths were most likely to occur in summer and fall and between the hours of 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. In 2003, 57 percent of bicycle deaths among children younger than 16 and 28 percent of adult (age 16 and older) bicycle deaths occurred on minor roads. Adult bicyclists were more likely than children to have been killed on major roads (66 percent compared with 42 percent).

Runners and Cyclist need to be seen in order to combat against the yearly death toll involved with automobiles. Lin Mfg & Design has developed Lin Reflectorz, the first sock to truly reflect light, giving runners and cyclist the edge to be seen at low light hours of the day.

Lin Mfg & Design has taken a high-viz-reflective yarn technology and directly knitted the yarn into the top band of the sock structure. The reflective yarn will not break or flake off like reflective tape. Lin Mfg & Design knits CoolMax by DuPont in all running and cycling socks. The CoolMax fiber speeds the evaporation process enhancing the comfort and performance of the runner or cyclist.

Lin Reflectorz are a must for runners or cyclists who need to been seen during low light hours of the day. As a car's headlights hit the Lin Reflectorz a bright band of light will alert the person driving. This first alert will cause the driver to become more aware of his/her surroundings.

Crystal Howard, Subway Professional Cycling Team, said, "Wearing Lin Reflectorz socks makes me feel safe. Riding at low light times of the day I know that cars notice me while I am wearing Lin Reflectorz because I can hear the cars slow down as they approach me. And as the cars pass me they will go slower and give me more room. It is all because the drivers see the bright band reflecting back from the Lin Reflectorz socks."

Lin Reflectorz are available in children and adult sizes in a variety of colors. Only available from Lin Mfg & Design, P.O. Box 6127, North Logan UT 84341. To request a catalog and product samples or to become a dealer call Lin Mfg & Design, 888.430.9888.
