Free Giveaway: Cordarounds Bike To Work Pants

Winners: Benny from Australia and Eran from Israel.

There are many ways to ensure you don’t become another fatal statistic while cycling , but the most interesting and sure fire way I’ve found is with this kitsch pair of Bike To Work Pants from Cordarounds. Fashion Divas need not despair as the pants come in a variety of colors and materials. Hit Jump to find out how you can win 2 of them!

Prance around your office in a totally awesome pair and when it’s time to bike off homeward, simply roll up the hems and lined cuffs and pull out the rear pockets. The Illuminite Teflon reflectors and 3M Scotchlite lining make these pants your prefect biking companion.

We at YD love the pair of pants so much that we convinced the San Fransisco based Cordarounds to sponsor 2 pairs for a FREE Giveaway!

All you need to do is tell us where else besides the cuff, hems and back pockets do you think the teflon reflectors would look good.

Leave your comments below.

2 lucky winners get to take home either a pair of Bike To work Pants or a pair of classic Cordarounds.

Contest Ends: May 13, 12:00 am PST

Cordarounds are an online exclusive, so you won’t find them in stores.

    I would suggest detachable suspenders with scotchlite lining. It would make the upper torso visible from front and back. This keeps with the wearable pants theme, but basically doubles the reflective area. Suspenders look kind of cool without the scotchlite anyway.

  • Aaron Melamed says:

    I think that the seams would be the next best place but it would have to be subtle.
    I also think that it would work if the pants were reversible so that one could wear them inside out on the way to work and have all of it reflective and then just flip them in the bathroom so that they are regular pants again.
    Another idea is being able to buy a lining for your pants that you already own so that they can act as reflectors so you can attach it to any pair of pants and or shorts.

  • hats, of course, trucker hats, long socks (especially the right foot which will have the pant leg rolled up), bottoms of shoes, angel wing attachments, gloves, and ++

    ++ i think the whole bike should be covered. hott.

  • ZoretMan says:

    knee would definitely be good place

  • Wesley says:

    Socks… but then i have to paddle backwards to have the full Michael Jackson moonwalk(moon-bike-ride) experience… HEE ee…shomon…

  • Bala says:

    Outside Leg seams …

  • Joe says:

    I agree that the knees would be good.

  • Loren says:

    I’d suggest the side seams as well. It would also be great to have knee reflectors. Maybe a loop of reflective fabric that could be fastened to velcro or a button loop on the inside leg seam?

  • ywp11 says:

    Maybe a back liner from waistline followed by the length of the pants then wrap around the ankle will be nice. Could be a cool retro design pattern.

  • The belt loops could be reflective.

  • twebb says:

    Pinstripe stitching would be great during the day and not change the nature of the work look. You could do along the seams or in clusters as part of the fabric design.

  • radia_ says:

    I’d recommend the knees, as they’ll appear to bob up and down to anyone in a car and a moving object is more noticeable than a still one – this is why the reflectors embedded in pedals are considered to be highly effective.

  • Mark says:

    Putting reflectors on the pocket opening so you wouldn’t have to flip your pocket inside out, cause that just looks silly. I would also like a pair of pants that converted to shorts like hiking pants. You could add reflection to the zipper flap there as well!

  • Julie B says:

    I second Anna – you could make pants for women! That would be a new place for your reflectors.

  • Josie says:

    I think some sort of snap/clip something to hold up the rolled cuff would be good.

    Also (as has been mentioned several times already) a narrow tux-style piping down the side would look good and be really reflective. I think knee patches would take away from the work-suitable aesthetic.

  • Newsjeff says:

    I like the idea of reflective pads on the knees. or just below the knees, maybe with a flap to cover during day use. Great Idea.

  • Saltynay says:

    Reflective suspenders or a reflective crotch pouch that pulls out through the flies or over the top of the waist band and hangs down.

  • Rick V. says:

    Trim on the outside of the cuffs/calfs if the pants are rolled all the way down.

  • Killian says:

    Make the seams running down the side and just the belt loops reflective.

  • Sophie says:

    Reflective knee pads would definitely make these pants perfect!

  • mike h says:

    I say put reflectors on the fly!

  • Anne says:

    How about reflective piping sown into the seams down the side of the legs.

  • frezzingaces says:

    on the side of the front shins for head on visibility
