Everyday urban cycling jeans and similar pants that can be worn on and off the bike are available for men in dozens of styles from dozens of vendors large and small. The only apparel designed for women, though, tend to be overly casual or sporty apparel like skorts, shorts and cycling.knickers.
Does a market for women’s cycling jeans exist? Designer and bike commuter Victoria Brewer is testing that through this Betabrand project for women’s gray bike-to-work jeans.
Her jeans feature a cotton / spandex blend for mobility, reflective zipper cuffs at the ankles for night-time visibility and to secure the ankle away from the chain, a hidden zipper coin pocket, and a reflective rear pocket flap.
Betabrand already has a women’s trouser in their Bike To Work collection. This new design adds a skinny-jeans option for more casual offices.
The designer is taking feedback and pre-orders now.
