The blog where lululemon fans discuss and feed their addiction. Photos, reviews, and news of the latest lulu.
Why on earth does the Presta skirt cost $68? Because it is for "cycling"? The padded shorts look promising but everything else overpriced.
I do not understand the point of the cycling skirt? Is it just to look cute or does it serve a purpose? Don't serious cyclists want to cut down on drag- not add it? If anyone knows the point of this item, please enlighten me!!
I'm not a fan of any of this new cycling capsule. I'd be embarrassed to ride in it. That being said, I'm sure I wear things that others don't like; everyone has different tastes.
I was hoping that tank (or I hope they were tanks) previewed in the headband photos would come out this upload. :(
I love the bruised berry seaside dot print! I would snatch this up in a CRB! Hoping for a fun new CRB and BB WUs tonight. Oh, and fun turbo shorts! Unlikely that I'll get my wishlist with all this cycling stuff coming out though. Oh well. I think the cycling stuff is all cute, but I don't have a bike.
A skirt with no shorts underneath? Really? This will be in the WMTM section in no time! Unless of course they aren't clear that there isn't an under-short in the product description. At this point, I wouldn't put that past them!
The skirt LOOKS adorable - but how on EARTH is a skirt with no liner $68?!?! That's horribly overpriced! Why do they take away features, then jack up the price?? How on earth is that skirt supposed to be functional in any way for cycling? Because it has a strip of neon trim??Perhaps before Lulu tries to make any more cycling gear, they should check out Pearl Izumi or Sugoi, which have features that cyclists *actually* need, like PADDED shorts (not NO shorts!)!I'll be saving my money for functional cycling apparel by a company that specializes in it. And I'll see this stuff in WMTM in 2 weeks, just like the last overpriced attempt at "cycling" gear.
I always feel like lululemon has major design flaws in these capsules- like they don't talk to serious riders before creating them (or don't involve athletes in the planning.) Seems like its all about looking cute without the functionality that true athletes require, thus making the capsules useless.
I am a serious cyclist and I actually think a few things look promising. The long shorts and shorter shorts look good pending the quality of the chamois. I love the idea of fuel pockets in the actual shorts as the are always in the jersey only...this makes it nice so you can wear any ol top. The jacket looks very functional, as does the short sleeved jersey. The skirt is a joke for function...but I can see where the casual rider may be self concious about shorts with a chammy so lulu is considering this as a cover up. The sleeveless tank is another side boob-a-palooza I fear. if I was in the market for new stuff I would at lest try it out, but alas, I have a ton of gear. Now, the key to cycling gear is the quality and the ability to hold up forever...that is where this line will need to be proven. Oh yeah, and comfort. If that chammy had bad seams you won't last 5 miles.
...and I can't spell even my own name tonight!
Oh one more thing...snaps for offering the shorts in 2 lengths. Many non cycling companies offer them in 1 length ...usually bootylicious length. I have tried a few that almost exposed cheek. You want your shorts a little longer so your inner thighs don't touch your seat. These 2 lengths are gonna help girls of all heights ride.
I love the jacket in ray!! Will be perfect for my bike commute to work where everyone is driving either looking at or talking on their phones while I pedal my a$$ off uphill and hope they see me! I like the whole line and yes when I get off my bike and I'm wearing padded shorts I love to have something to cover up the unsightly bulge. :)
