URBANIST Cycling Chamois Panties
Cycling clothes are great for cycling, especially proper padded shorts. They really do make a difference protecting your posterior. However, they’re generally a bit “racer” looking. To try to solve this liner shorts are available, but they can be a bit tricky to get under some clothes as they often come quite far down the leg – an issue for shorter shorts or skirts.
Texan designer Christiana Guzman has decided to do something about this and has looked to crowdsourcing site Kickstarter to fund production of her new range of 2 styles of vintage inspired cycling underwear. Each design has its own padded insert for that comfort and padding – the Brigitte having more padding than its smaller sister the Bettie. Now these aren’t for the Tour De France of course, but there are shorts for that already. However for those summer rides down to the pub, they could be just the job.
They certainly seem to have found support, as the Kickstarter campaign has reached more than double its funding target with 11 days still to go. The great thing about that is you know this project is going to happen now, so if you like the look of these, follow the link below and you can order your own. Each pantie costs $50, which seems reasonable considering these are a brand new low volume start up.
