Levi’s is conquering the cycling world by launching a commuter line this year. First off is the classic 511® Skinny Commuter jean developed with proprietary nanopsphere treatment that keeps it stain-free. The denim fabric used is lightweight and stretchy. The holster is made more durable by a subtle detail.

Integrated into the denim is a zippered stash pocket and a u-lock holster complete with campione del monde stripes. Also, the jeans are gusseted to avoid crotch blowout while a higher-cut back hides the plumber’s crack. For better visibility, 3M-lining is added on the inner cuff.

Aside from the jeans, the 2011 Levi’s Cycling Apparel features a cycling jacket. Along with the same nanopsphere treatment, the Trucker jacket is made more cycling-specific by the classic silhouette’s subtle details and the sleeves’ reinforced accordion design. Breathability is enhanced by the vents across the back.
