Cordarounds Bike to Work Pants

San Francisco clothing manufacturer Cordarounds has brought their Bike to Work pants to our attention, and with good reason. Seemingly perfect for the dress-casual urban commuter, these $95 made in the USA pants are everyday khakis with reflective material on the insides of the cuff and back pockets for the commute to and fro. Cuff them up on the bike, roll them down once at your destination. Functional at both ends of the commute, and in between.

    These look awful! You’d think that a clothing manufacturer in SF would know better than to market baggy pants. I mean, they don’t need to be skinny or anything, but at least offer a slim cut. And if you’re biking, wouldn’t you want slim pants anyway? I know I do. I prefer swrve’s jeans. They’re about the same price and come with all kinds of cool features like a seamless crotch, cell phone pocket, low in front/high in back, and reflective material.

    Nice idea, i saw these on other interbike posts or somewhere. But $95 for chinos with reflective tape is a lot of money. I guess off shore clothing prices have jaded us all. Same goes for Chrome’s great looking knickers that cost what like $140!

    the fit looks like crap, and the price point is too high.

    if they want to create really “functional” cycling pants, someone should look into something to prevent swamp ass, haha

    huh, maybe a good idea that needs some changes.
