Pro-viz do my head in. Their kit is really good, especially the PixEite stuff, but what's with all the black. For a company that's supposidly producing clothing that enhances visiblity, black is a stupid choice, unless only used at night when colour doesn't matter. And before anyone jumps in to say 'they do other colours too', my answer is not really, and the alternatives to black that they offer are poor (normally high viz of some form), and there is nothing except black in the PixElite range.

Where are the more subtle but still high contrast colours like Red, Sky Blue, White, etc!

I met the  owner of my wonderful LBS a while back, winterish, with his missus, I had followed their wheel tracks up the muddy hill.  He said to me that they had to wear a little more as they don't quite generate quite as much heat, made some sense to me.

Or buy a Galibier Colombiere jacket for less than half the price. It's reversible too so even better value.

Tbh, any jacket can be a 'e-bike specific' jacket. You dont need to spend £180 for one that is certified as such by its manufacturer.
