The Commuter and Tube Pack
The Commuter and Tube Pack is for the busy cyclist. The Commuter can be zipped on or off with ease and the Tubes can be worn on the arms and are useful for signalling. (The Tube can also double up as a calf skin for longer spins or road running).
The Commuter is easy to wear over a trouser leg or a bike tight. The Commuter version is not meant to be skin-tight like ‘The Tube’ so it can stretch slightly and accommodate clothing underneath but if you buy a smaller size it will hug the calf nicely.
Commuter Sizes – all are made of a lycra and nylon mix so there is reasonable flexibility built in, do not over-stretch the garments or they will lose their flexibility and stitching may come undone.
Large (36cm = circumference unstretched)
Medium (32cm = circumference unstretched)
Small (28cm = circumference unstretched)
The length of all gators is 35cm.
Tube Size – One size fits all.
Colour – This combo comes in high vis fluorescent yellow – all have reflective strips.
As vehicle lights are dipped and turned slightly towards the verge or pavement and as the lower leg is in motion the reflective strips deflect the vehicle lights back to the driver. They reflect at a much greater distance than any other item on your bike or person due to their position and the motion of the leg. This is something we do not see unless we are the ones behind the wheel.
