Sportswear brand Vollebak designed a collection of reflective clothing called Black Light that uses special glass technology keep people safe during nighttime activity without sacrificing comfort or style. The line consists of an all-black four-part layering system, including a tee-shirt, a long-sleeve base layer, a mid-layer and a jacket, that features a lightweight yet durable fabric, ensuring protection and flexibility.

In addition to its subtle, black aesthetic, what really makes this line stand out is its high-tech reflective dots that appear black during the day but are highly reflective at night upon contact with beams from sources like car headlights. The dots consist of 60,000 tiny reflective black glass beads, and are positioned strategically on the garments to make the outline of a human body evident in the dark. This line joins the current trend toward tailored athletic wear that is high-tech yet stylish.
