SmartWool to Unveil a Line of Cycling Apparel
SmartWool To Branch Out Into Cycling ApparelSmartWool, the company that specializes in making outdoor activities more enjoyable thanks to their wool baselayers and socks, has announced that starting next Spring they will unveil a line "of road and mountain bike apparel, including jerseys, shorts, socks, and sweaters for men and women." Photos of the clothes aren't yet available, but one of the more interesting products will be the "recycled mountain bike shorts which feature a two-in-one, removable short inside. The outer is made of recycled nylon, wool, and elastic stretch while the inner, a removable road-like short, is lined with merino wool, including the chamois."
Wool Apparel--Replacing Petroleum-Based SpandexNot only will these wool clothes help replace petroleum-based spandex cycling outfits, they also offer a different look for cyclists; after all, not everyone wants to look like a Tour de France rider in black spandex. What's more, wool is an excellent material for sports like cycling, as it is "completely breathable, absorbs moisture from your skin before it turns to liquid, and is wearable on summer days. " We'll bring you photos once they are available.
