Trainer by Gibson headphones
While many say it isn’t wise to run at night with headphones, some folks can’t do without music to keep them going. Light-up Trainer headphones from famed guitar-maker Gibson feature a blinking light on the back of the headband, plus a secondary reflective strip for increased visibility. Plus, there’s a SafeSound mode that adjusts the sound, so you can better hear traffic and other potential hazards. You can control playback via buttons on the headphones themselves and, with Bluetooth built-in, there are no wires to get in the way.
Trainer by Gibson is available in both white and black colors and available for $249.99.
GoMotion LiteBelt 100
The GoMotion LiteBelt 100 is available for $45.43. Three AA batteries are included.
Athlights are tiny, super lightweight LEDs that clip anywhere on your clothing via powerful magnets. Put them on your shorts, on your shirt, on your socks, in the front or in the back—they go anywhere there’s a square inch of fabric. The strobing LEDs can be seen from as far as 600 feet away, giving drivers plenty of time to see you and move out your way as they approach. Expect about 40 hours of battery life out of two CR927 watch batteries (included).
Athlights are sold in pairs of two and flash in red and white for $9.99; for maximum visibility you may want to combine multiple sets.
