Amphipod, the design and innovation leader of minimalist hydration, visibility, and technical performance running gear announces the launch of its new and innovative reflective and flashing Xinglet Optic Beam USB Rechargeable Vest in conjunction with its full fall Viz 360 Product Collection and the Run Visible. Run Safe. Campaign.

Available now through specialty stores nationwide, Amphipod has over 30 visibility-enhancing products specifically engineered for runners that incorporate ergonomic minimalism and lightweight functionality for maximum comfort and performance.

The new Xinglet Optic Beam USB Rechargeable Vest is no exception.  Weighing less than 3 ounces, this visibility-enhancing flashing reflective USB rechargeable vest with innovative optic light tube design integrates both the key elements of enhancing visibility with 360° LED illumination and front and rear reflective visibility boosting zones.  In addition, the product features a quick zip-on design, is fully adjustable for the perfect fit, has a simple push-button activation, and lasts up to 5 hours flashing on one charge.

Enhancing a runner’s ability to be visible and seen in low light conditions requires a multi-pronged approach with wearable reflectivity-enhancing components combined with flashing LED elements positioned visibly and 360 degrees around the body.  “Most runners either don’t realize that they can’t be seen, or think they’ll be weighed down”, says Keith Willows, Amphipod’s head of engineering.  “We’ve successfully addressed the challenge of developing ergonomic, comfortable and ultra-lightweight visibility gear specifically designed for runners.”

In preparation for the shorter fall and winter days, the Xinglet Optic Beam USB Rechargeable Vest is available for immediate ship.
