Cedar Cycling is known for their best in class, made in the US Merino wool cycling gear, which now include an option for the ladies as well. Seeing a hole in the market for a high end, made in the US jersey that was smartly tailored and specifically prototyped by women, Cedar got to work with a fit and concept summit that included 12 female cyclists from the area to figure out exactly “what they liked – made in USA, versatility, durability. What they didn’t like – tight fitting necks and shoulders, loose cuffs, high pockets and short hems. And what they needed – material comfort & performance, something full-featured, something smart, something sophisticated.”
With input from Barb Howe, and a local female pattern maker, the first runs of the women’s standard jersey was started – at a local, woman owned factory in the Bay area, of course. The jersey is available for pre order at a 10% discount until August 6th.
More details after the break.
Like the men’s Standard Jersey, the women’s is made from their proven StandardWool, which is a breathable blend of merino wool and nylon for a comfortable, anti-microbial, abrasion resistant, shape retaining fit. Tailored for a woman, the jersey features three large, easily accessible rear pockets that use bar tack stitched to keep them in place. There is a full length YKK zipper, and a soft gripper elastic on the bottom hem.
Designed in Oakland, the jersey is sewn at a factory in San Leandro, California. If you pre-order the jersey you can pick one up for $144.00, but after that the price will go up to the standard $160. Check out the Cedar Cycling site for info on sizing and washing instructions.
