Levi’s Makes Jeans for Bicyclists


Every biker has experienced one unavoidable woe: the inevitable disintegration of your go-to biking pants. Crotches tear. Fabric becomes thin. Your friends don’t want to hang out because they think you smell bad. Levi’s aims to counteract all of that with their new Commuter brand, which incorporates a whopping amount of ultracool technology to ensure that your favorite gear doesn’t end up in the trashcan. With a reinforced crotch that prevents tearage, Nanosphere technology that makes them water and dirt resistant and a sanitized hygiene function that keeps them fresh, these are the real deal. They’ve got a whole slew of other surprises, too, like a loop that holds your U-lock. They’ll be available in select Levi’s stores this week, which means that in a matter of hours you’ll be be able to grab a pair and bike cleanly off into the sunset.

    isn’t it a better idea to keep your U lock on your bike?

  2. anotherguy says:

    of course. and they also forgot a zip on the right leg, so that your jeans don’t get caught by the chain. i think marketing and product design guys at levi’s suck.

    @anotherguy a zip? you can just roll them up… the inside seams are reflective, they clearly thought about it

    I think these might have a change out in Seattle especially with the especially with the water resistant fabric.
