Discerning Cyclist, a cycling website out of the UK with a focus on cycling apparel, recently published a list of the top cycling jeans for men and women.
We’re big fans of their site and very comprehensive reviews so were delightfully gobsmacked to find that our Cordura Jeans were in at number one. They went up some pretty elite company and it sounds like they came away as the “people’s champion” among the Discerning Cyclist squad.
“One name that came up time and time again when asking about people’s favourite bike jeans was that of Swrve… Basically, these jeans tick box after box.”
Head over to Discerning Cyclist to read the rest of the rest of the review.

Despite its clean urban aesthetic, there’s more to this soft shell than meets the eye. it’s loaded with bike-friendly features like a drop tail, reflective hits, pit zips, four-way stretch, a huge zippered stash pocket, and double cuffs to keep drafts out of the sleeves. A light fleece lining and TPU middle layer tolerates wild autumn weather, making for a happier ride and an easier transition to the office. swrve.us”
U.K. cyclist extraordinaire Tim Wiggins recently put the cigarette cut version of our Durable Cotton Shorts to the test. We’re thrilled to share the news that they emerged from the other side of the wringer with flying colors.
To quote Tim’s review, “It seems that Swrve have done it again with the Durable Cotton Cigarette Cut Shorts. They’ve produced a product that looks great both on and off the bike, but also a product that feels great to ride in, and has a significant amount of useful functionality. Built to last, and built to ride; these are sure to become a staple part of my wardrobe for a while to come.”
As a cyclist who racks up a LOT of miles, Tim found the slimmer fit of the cigarette cut shorts to be complimentary to his quads rather than restricting.
“As well as being cut for riding, the Durable Cotton shorts also have a cut that is more suited to cyclists’ physiques than most. These are a slim fitting short, so they look great on skinny riders’ legs. They are also a great length, dropping to just above the knee; long enough to cover those dodgy tan lines, but not so long they catch on your knee caps whilst riding. Perfect.”
Be sure to take a look at Tim’s previous reviews for our Modal Tees, Durable Cotton Trousers, WWR Lightweight Skinny Trousers, and Cordua Jeans.
