Reflective Tape for Bicycles and Motorcycles

bicycle reflective tape

There are several types of reflective tapes available to bike riders and motorcyclists for nightime visibility. The four most popular are Engineer grade or Type I, High Intensity or Type III, Prismatic DOT or Type V and SOLAS or Type IX. They are all reflective, however, they each vary in intensity.

The chart at the bottom of this page shows the results of a test we ran with the 4 most common types of reflective tape. For neighborhood riding the engineer grade is fine. For highway riding where cars must see you sooner the prismatic or solas tapes are recommended.
