INVISTA's CORDURA brand fabric has been spinning out durable innovations for the urban cyclist for years. Well-known for their long-lasting durability, functionality and performance, CORDURA fabrics are resistant to tears, scuffs and abrasions and are now available in comfortable, next-to-skin apparel offerings – all characteristics crucial for the on-the-go city cyclist.

Cyclists now have the option of fully outfitting themselves in biking gear and apparel made of durable CORDURA fabrics. From comfortably durable jeans that take the on-the-go commuter from the street to work, biking shoes, accessories and messenger bags that are lightweight and ideal for carrying laptops and personal belongings—the urban cyclist now has the total solution for optimum performance and practical style with biking products made with CORDURA brand fabrics.

“Urban cyclists depend on long-lasting, versatile fabrics that are stylish enough to go from the road to work,” said Cindy McNaull, global CORDURA brand and marketing director. “With the launch of our latest CORDURA Naturalle™ apparel fabrics, cyclists can now dress from top to bottom and ride with the comfort and durable reliability that distinguishes CORDURA fabrics.”

CORDURA brand fabrics are available in the following urban cycling products:
• SWRVE CYCLING JEANS -- Flexible and long lasting, these high-performing jeans made of CORDURA Denim fabric look and feel like everyday stylish cotton jeans, yet are fortified with articulated knees and a gusseted crotch. Swrve cycling jeans include reflective belt loops, as well as reflective strips that are visible when jeans are rolled up and cuffed.

Available in regular trim fit and skinny fit styles, the jeans feature a low-waist front that helps prevent belt buckles from digging into the skin and a high-waist back ensuring warmth and a snug backside fit.
