NEW! Spin It to Win It Capsule

A number of you have commented that there is some info on the lululemon blog page on the new Spin It to Win It capsule that is coming in October. I am really excited about this line.  It sounds like the technical features are really geared towards spin - the bottoms have a higher rear rise, the tops a dropped back hem, and there is lots of ventilation. All of this sounds very promising. I haven't been spinning much since I started running earlier this year but I really miss it and been trying to make time to visit class again. I can't wait to see the new tank and I really like the looks of the Spin City Long Sleeve top.

NEW! Spin It to Win It Crops

New Spin It to Win It Crops. The crops seems to be optimized for spinning - shorter length, articulated knees, and a gusset optimized for spinning. I wonder what that means. I know I have won pinholes into the crotches of my luxtreme crops from rubbing on the saddle. I wonder if these are reinforced or double lined. That would be nice but I doubt it. I like the crops but don't want an attached skirt. I hope there is a skirtless version. I need to remember to check these out when they hit the stores.

  • the skirt is made with breathable, wicking Ultra-Light Swift
  • anti-stink micro-diamond mesh behind the knees to help you keep your cool
  • the rise is higher in the back for a little extra bum coverage
  • the articulated knees let you spin without restriction
  • gusset designed for comfort on the bike
  • Color Comparison - Flare, Creamsicle Pop, and Pop Orange

    Thanks to Ms. H. we have a nice comparison of Flare, Creamsicle and Pop Orange (from left to right). I'll see if I can dig up some photos with Tang Light.
