Details

Ever dreamt of a comfortable ride around town without having to resort to full-on cycling shorts? Something you can wear all day and feel feminine in, but still helps cushion your most sensitive parts as you ride?

Urbanist Cycling's Leopard chamois-padded knickers are the answer to your prayers. Beautifully cut to fit and enhance the female form, they've been tested tirelessly by the Texas cycling community where Urbanist is based to ensure no chaffing or digging in. The material is sumptuous, whilst the chamois pads come from one of Italy's most respected chamois designers.

Urbanist's Leopard padded cycling pants are well suited for medium/longer rides of up to 25 miles, or even longer. A quantum leap forward for women's cycling kit.

Its strongly advised in the cycling world, NOT to wear your everyday knickers underneath cycling bibs, shorts or panties. They've been created to replace knickers and provide a comfortable padded alternative.

How to Measure?

Waist: Bend to one side to find the natural indentation in your torso. This is your natural waist. Run a measuring tape around your natural waistline, keeping the tape parallel with floor and one finger between your body and tape for a more comfortable fit.

Hip: Stand on a level surface with your feet together. Measure around the fullest part of your hips and bottom (approximately 7-9in/18-23cm below waistline), keeping the tape parallel with the floor.

Who's Behind It?

Urbanist Cycling are a small design outfit based in Austen, Texas - a true hub of US cycling. Their 'lightbulb moment' was to decide to create beautiful underwear that could be used practically and flatteringly for riding a bike.

In their words: 'We aspire to create products that enable people to live in the city and commute on their bikes. We don’t think you should have to sacrifice style, convenience or comfort to do so'. Hear hear, we say.

Others agreed. Their KickStarter fund raising programme earned them 250% of their target sum and they were off, with real inspiration and passion to produce an ever growing range. We have high hopes for them. True creative pioneers for women's cycling.

  1. That's the commute sorted!

    Review by JennyVelo

    When I've got over the rain and how heavy my panniers feel and I've sorted getting home early to get the car so I can collect the kids. When I've found a way to protect my clean work clothes from the danger of my lunch getting on them and I've decanted the essentials from my handbag into the smaller bag to put in my pannier. When I've retrieved my helmet, gloves and lock and remembered where my shed key is - I just want to get on my bike and ride to work. Finally I can do just that without having to get undressed and re-dressed into 'proper' cycling gear. I have found some really good stretchy, shower resistant walking trousers and with these padded undies underneath I can pass as 'normal' as well as cyclist. Super comfy, honest sizing and built for human women with bottoms and thighs! Another bonus is that with these bad boys on every pair of leggings are potential riding gear. One very happy customer! :-)

  2. Practically perfect

    Review by Mary Poppins

    I'm new to cycling and was shocked by the impact on the nether regions of even a gentle ride. The Urbanist padded knickers are the answer. I'm now the owner of 4 pairs, true to size, comfy and protective (my secret, and its maybe not for everyone, for longish rides I wear them WITH padded leggings!) And the big plus is - they look such fun!

    VeloVixen Says: Mary P - what a fantastic review, we're delighted they're looking after you so well! Bet Bert the Chimney Sweep likes them too... x
