Urban Cyclist - - Gear On Test -

Sum­mer’s fi­nally ar­rived so it’s time to ex­pose your limbs for a good dose of vi­ta­min D. And you can’t go far wrong with this green gar­ment from Vulpine. Use of a four-way stretch Rip­stop fab­ric en­sures free­dom of move­ment, while mak­ing them hard-wear­ing, and the tra­di­tional cycling-spe­cific di­a­mond gus­set in­creases com­fort around the seat bones through seam elim­i­na­tion. Two rear pock­ets plus three up­front of­fer plenty of stowage ca­pa­bil­i­ties, al­though those of you blessed with Hoy-like thighs be warned: they’re not the loos­est of fits. Throw in crammed pock­ets and com­fort will soon dis­ap­pear. They’re also rel­a­tively pricey for what they are, al­beit at time of press they were listed at a health­ier £52.50.
