Outlier OG Cycling Pant - Straight Outta NYC

You might have already read about the new Outlier OG 4Season Black Lotus cycling pants on John Prolly's blog or somewhere else but I need to give to them an extra shout-out here.

When I read the copy on Outlier's site, I was immediately sold: 

"A garment designed to work as well in a board meeting as it does on a bicycle. Wake up and throw them on, regardless of whether you plan on climbing a mountain or running a business.

Made in New York City with Schoeller Dryskin Extreme fabrics, these pants are designed for the ultimate in versatility, both socially and technologically. This is the best technical fabric around, you'll stay cool and dry no matter how hard you ride. The Lotus or Nanosphere coating is "self cleaning". The surface is coated in nanoscopic spikes that prevent grease and stain molecules from bonding to the fabric. Water just rolls off, taking with it any dirt that might remain.

It's water resistant and quick drying, so no worries if the sky turns against you. Light rain? Forget it, that stuff just rolls right off, just like the coffee or red wine you might have spilled upon it.

You could rock it with a sport coat and oxfords or a hoodie with sneakers

So If you're commuting on a bike but you're commute is not super long, or you're just riding casually in a city everyday in every weather but you don't want to look like you're a professional road cyclist or on your way to go hiking on the mountains, Outlier's pants might be just what you're looking for. 

Technical, yet casual enough, and good looking in that understated and simple way. 

And if the price tag seems bit hefty, remember that they're Made In NYC by a small company run by real people who actually ride bikes themselves, they're made out of high quality technical materials, made to high environmental standards AND you can maybe get them bit cheaper if you're clever enough to click here.  Also, if you end up ordering, tell them Jussi convinced you to buy them, ok?
