Urban Cyclist - - On Test -­dencecol­lec­

Ca­dence is a Cal­i­for­nian brand that’s gain­ing an ur­ban foothold in the UK. In fact, those of you who raced or at­tended July’s leg of the Red Hook se­ries might have seen their team, Ca­dence Colossi, com­pet­ing with the world’s best. That’s the back story – what about these green slacks? Well, they’re a slim-reg­u­lar cut with ta­pered leg open­ing, which is in­cred­i­bly com­fort­able, es­pe­cially on the bike where a hint of elas­tane en­sures they work with, rather than against, your ped­alling mo­tion. But there’s a prob­lem – the bil­low­ing but­tock area. While the legs fit nicely, the elas­tane-and-cot­ton mix gath­ers around the glutes, for a less-thanflat­ter­ing look. We’d say it could be a per­sonal thing but the same thing’s hap­pened on the model used on the Ca­dence web­site. A shame.
