LA Times Loves Club Ride's Women's Gear
Posted: Oct 27 2014
We at Club Ride know that men's and women's clothing should not be made the same. Bodies are shaped differently. Men sweat in different places than women. Women want padding in areas that would make men uncomfortable. LA Times has found a few elite companies making women-specific sports clothing, including Club Ride!
Club Ride Freedom short and Jill Tech Flannel jersey: Technical cycling/athletic clothing designed to look good enough to wear around town after a ride.
Likes: The good street looks got two thumbs up from the testers. “It’s about time someone did this,” said one. “I love riding my bike, but don’t want to look like I’m sitting around in bike clothes. This stuff looks nice enough that no one knows until they see me get back on my bike.” The Jill jersey stays cool due to use of a fast-wicking fabric, and has practical touches like two zippered rear pockets and a zip front pocket. The Freedom short has jeans-like front pockets, a seamless crotch gusset for chafe-free comfort, a zippered side pocket, and night-ride reflectivity.
