MACNA NightEye Technology - Reflection Reinvented

Posted by jeff alvarez on

If jackets could have a split personality, they would probably look like this. Common grey by day, incredibly luminous at night; when placed in the range of a car or motorcycle's headlights, it will light up completely!

So how does this radiant fabric work exactly? Basically, it's coated with lots of tiny beads. They act as satellite dishes, reflecting light back to its source, even from long distances. Just like a road sign!

Dutch motorcycle gear maker MACNA is known for its use of technologically advanced materials. The brand is not reluctant to innovate from the Summer Comfort mesh system to the multi-layered Twin-Shell jackets.

Now, Macna is taking its inventive spirit to after dusk with its high-visibility. Night Eye material.

Featured on an assortment of jackets and pants in the brand's lineup, Night Eye is a fully-reflective material similar to the 3M reflective strips currently found on technical riding gear. What sets Night Eye apart is that Macna applies the fabric to large panels of its jackets and trousers; Consisting of a series of concave-shaped discs, the fabric reflects light directly back to the source, ensuring that fellow motorists see the rider. The company integrates tiny glass beads into the fabric, which respond to light like tiny mirrors.

Macna Fusor NightEye is an all-weather textile jacket with great comfort features. The detachable thermal lining and removable waterproof membrane give you great flexibility when adapting to changing weather conditions.
