5/22 Newsletter: New Bike To Workwear, Men’s Mystery Pants Sale & More

New Bike to Work Shorts & Knickers

Before we get into pants, allow us a shorts digression — specifically, new gray and khaki Bike to Work Shorts and gray and black Bike to Work Knickers (i.e., slightly longer shorts).

Each pair is made from supple, durable, water-repellent fabric and comes chock full of features designed for two-wheeled commuters, including a gusseted crotch, zippered security pockets, and reinforced belt loops.

And, of course, they’re equipped with pulsar-like pocket pullouts, cornea-searing pentagons (shorts only), and other intensely reflective elements designed to warn off motorists, pedestrians, and creatures of the night.

Khaki Bike to Work Shorts

Sure, you could just wear our full-length Bike to Work Pants, but with ocean levels on the rise due to global warming, we suggest you hedge your bets.
