Today, October 10, 2015, thousands of bikers are protesting throughout France, revolted by a bill to prohibit the circulation of motorcycles registered before 2001 in all the cities of the hexagon. This event, which is supervised by the FFMC (Fédération Française des Motards en Colères),
is also targeting other reforms, including the mandatory high visibility vest from 1 January 2016 for motorized 2-wheelers! This famous yellow waistcoat.
As a motorcyclist, cyclist, scooter driver and as a designer of high visibility clothing, we are not here to get upset against this new directive, but to propose a series of alternatives to this unattractive yellow waistcoat.
Our project: create a real collection of hi vis clothing for urban commuters! We do not dispute the usefulness of this equipment when we are traveling between the lines of cars, at the roadside stop, or when we slip over long meters, where the mere fact of being seen can save our lives.
We dispute the fact that there is no alternative to the yellow vest, this fluo cloth not so sexy. So rather than shout « We Are Not happy! We Are Not happy! », we came to propose solutions, real solutions (check our Urban Jungle hi vis Collection)!
We were In Lille with Marco, in Bordeaux with Damico, in Marseille with Adrien, in Grenoble with the brother, in Lyon with the cousin, in Paris with all the team.
