Kickstarter fund for…cycling panties?!

By Jennifer Sage On September 1, 2013 Under Misc

Let’s take a vote…who might wear these? Don’t like Lycra, but still want to be comfortable on an indoor bike? People obviously think it’s a good idea—as of today (9/1/13), it’s almost reached its fundraising goal! Check out the description on Kickstarter.

    I don’t think I would buy them but I think there’s a huge market. I see lots of women in my classes who understand the value of a proper cycling short in terms of comfort on the saddle but are unwilling to commit to the ‘look’ of shorts. They would definitely wear something like this under other workout wear.

    I wish her lots of success.

    As an instructor, I do wear these panties under lycra or spandex tights. When riders, indoors or out, wear shorts or sweat pants over bike panties, the crotch of loose pants gets trapped on the nose of the bike seat. Especially in indoor cycling with what I call “tricks on bikes,” you know… jumps, etc

    I think lots of women who don’t like the look and feel of wearing cycle shorts all the time would love these….including me. Let me know where I can buy these!

    What about inner thigh chaffing against the seat?

    I think that it is a good idea. I haven’t looked at what is available for women along the cycling underpants line of garments. Similar products exist already though in more of a male design. I wear them for my commuting rather than bibs or ride kit. They allow me to wear a more generic short/pant and still be comfortable in the saddle. I don’t always get the opportunity to change immediately when I get to work when I commute, so being able to wear non-lycra cycling gear makes it more comfortable moving around the office environment.

    All that said, I don’t like to leave the shorts on under my pants for very long. Riding creates sweat. The chamois gets moist from the sweat. Just as I don’t remain in my ride kit for long after a ride, I don’t leave the cycling under-short on for very long. It is just not comfortable on the skin of my bottom.
