5 More Raw Jeans for Cyclists

More than a year ago we covered the release of Levi’s Commuter line of products, which included a cyclist-oriented update to the classic 511 jean.

The post was well-received, but we were also pointed in the direction of a couple other brands producing jeans for cyclists out of raw denim. This time we’re looking to spotlight a few more pairs of denim aimed at those of us who prefer two wheels.

If you know of any pairs we missed this time around, be sure to let us know in the comments below or in our forum.
