We often bring you the latest bike designs, or various cool ways to get out and about in the Region on two wheels, but it’s easy to find yourself donning less-than-fashionable bike gear when it actually comes to hitting the cycle path.
So we thought these great additions to the Levi’s collection of denim would be worth a mention for those of you who might need to hop straight off a bike and into a café without blinding everyone with your highlighter lycra.
The Commuter Range has been specifically designed with the cyclist commuter in mind, with a number of features aimed at adding functionality, while maintaining that classic jeans look.
There’s the Trucker Jacket, which features extra pockets for your iPod and other bits and pieces, with angled side pockets for easy access while cycling. It also has side button tabs, which have reflective material underneath for increased visibility at night. There’s also extra fabric around the arms for air flow and movement.
The skinny leg commuter jeans feature a “utility waistband” allowing you to keep your U-lock on you at all times, while the same reflective material has been used on the inside seams – meaning you can just role them up (as you would ordinarily to avoid the chain) for extra visibility.
There’s also a hidden phone pocket and reinforced belt loops, double-layer back pockets and seat. These jeans come in a couple of different colours and styles.
All the new items come with stretch fabric and use NanoSphere® nanotechnology, which makes them super water resistant.
So commuting to work or riding to meet friends doesn’t have to mean sacrificing your style.
