Functionality never goes out of style.
Of all the entries in its young line of casual cycling clothing, New Road, Giro's all new Mobility Cuff Pant is perhaps the best example of what this line is all about: equal parts utility and traditional styling with instances of contemporary flair.
The fabric speaks to the utility side of the equation, with a synthetic and cotton blend that that provides the breathability of cotton, the durability of polyester, and elastane's ability to deform and return to its original shape. You'll be wearing them on the bike, after all, and pure cotton would run the risk of becoming a misshapen mess before you get to your destination — think the shovel-butt phenomenon that afflicts jeans after a few uses between washings.
The Mobility Cuff Pants travel well from the bike to the office to the lecture hall to a night out, with some elements (the elastic cuff, which keeps the pants out of your chainring) offering utility, some elements (the chino aesthetics and welted rear pockets) representing the traditional or professional elements of your life, and still other elements (the patch pockets and, maybe, the cuff again) providing bits of fashion-forward detailing. Given its absolute neutrality, it's safe to assume that the color, Carbon, belongs in all three categories.
The Giro Mobility Cuff Pants - Women's are available in even sizes from 2 to 12 in the color Carbon.

Such a great, multitasking find!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 10
I like everything about these. They fit true to the fitting chart, are flexible yet elegant, and make everything they cover look good. It isn't easy to find a comfy and stylish multitasking piece of clothing and this certainly fits the bill. I'd love to score few more (especially at the sale price!) in other colors.
Comfortable, durable, adorable

I wasn't really sure what I was getting into with these pants, but they were on sale, so I bought a pair. These pants are so comfortable! Both on and off the bike. No need to roll a pant leg with these guys when you hop on the bike. They aren't so casual you look like you just rolled out of bed, but they might make you think you did based off of the comfort factor alone.
