Sport Chalet Lights The Way As Days Get Shorter

October 30, 2013

Specialty sporting goods retailer offers safety advice when pursuing outdoor activities past sun down

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Daylight saving time is coming to an end on Nov. 3, which means fewer hours in the day to hit the pavement before nightfall. Instead of cutting runs short, specialty sporting goods retailer, Sport Chalet, offers safety tips and gear to stay active after the sun goes down.

“Switching your exercise routine from the open road to an indoor gym is not the only solution to the earlier sunset,” said Sport Chalet Expert Chris Burston. “Sport Chalet has a wide selection of lightweight, effective headlamps and bike lights to keep your path bright and your evening runs and rides safe.”

Sport Chalet’s Burston compiled a list of precautionary measures for anyone looking to continue their outdoor exercise after the clock falls back:


- Wearing a headlamp is the easiest way to have a continuous light source while running in the dark. The Princeton Tec Fred 4LED Headlamp is lightweight, provides 146 hours of burn time and offers Red LED for stealth night vision.

- It is essential to have proper lighting when biking at night, especially when riding along dark trails. The Serfas True 1000 USB Headlight is the ultimate lighting source, with a Smart Wall Charger and an easy-to-use handlebar and helmet mounting system.

- Sometimes getting a little bit of fresh air is just what the doctor ordered. Take a brisk walk after dinner with the family, but be sure to bring along Life Gear Glow Sticks. The colorful and convenient glow sticks are a fun way to keep an eye on the kids, especially with the included emergency whistle and flasher.

- A great way to be seen on trails after daylight hours is to use reflective tape, such as Fuel Belt Reflective Peel & Stick, which will adhere to just about anything from clothing to helmets. This is a quick yet effective way to stand out in the dark.
