Don’t Fear the Chain with Exposed Seam’s StaySharp Commuter Cuff
Velcro strap just not cutting it anymore? Maybe it’s time to check out the StaySharp Commuter Cuff from Exposed Seam. We all know that if you’re riding to work in your casual pants, you had better do something about that cuff before it gets greasy, or worse – caught in the chain and torn up. Many cyclists simply roll up their pant legs, though this isn’t always practical especially in the colder months of the year. Feeling that they have a product that is better, and only slightly more expensive than your average velcro strap, Jonathan and Jenifer Stark have launched their Boston based business with their Massachusetts made StaySharp Commuter Cuff.
Made with a patent pending design, each cuff is made in the USA from Cordura fabric in a variety of colors. Basic black will retail for only $12, while Khaki, Denim, Slate, Oxblood, and Alert are slightly more at $14. The shape of the Cuff is designed to keep you pants out of the chain, while also protecting the laces of your shoes. Designed to be worn of the right leg, the cuff closes around the ankle using velcro and includes a reflective panel on the rear for added visibility.
While the first batch was made in the Stark’s live/work studio at the 300 Summer St. Artist’s Building, they moved production to a local Fall River, MA manufacturing center to keep up with demand.
