Even 2 years after first manufactured, Funkier’s elite seamless clothing is still considered unique in the cycling apparel industry. Explore 3 innovative products from the summer elite line.
We know how important cycling wear is for you.
At Funkier, all of our staff members – From the product designers, through the sales and marketing team and up to the owner himself, are all cyclists.
We love cycling just as much as our customers, and this is exactly why we created the elite cycling wear line.
The elite line is the perfect choice for the experienced road cyclist. The one who won’t miss a weekend ride, who will train in any weather (if not outdoors than on the trainer), and who lives for a good cycling race or triathlon.
When these type of cyclists choose their cycling wear, they have a few things in mind – Breathability, lightweight, mobility, and of course trends and fashion.
These were exactly the qualifications that guided us when we created the line, and this is why we chose to use seamless technology when designing and manufacturing it.
So what it seamless technology and why is it so unique in the cycling wear industry?
Unlike the traditional way of producing knitwear, where individual pieces are knitted and then sewn together, seamless garments are knitted as a singular piece, which makes it a high-quality, high-performance sweat-wicking fabric, that allows for ventilation and temperature management. The single and continuous knitting process also eliminates side seams, which creates comfortable, better-looking, and better fitting clothes.
Seamless has been on the rise since 2018 when this technology appeared in popular fashion brands catalogs and seen its major increase. The main factor for this growth includes the fact that clothes that are manufactured using this technology offer much more comfort and flexibility, combined with an anti-chafing design.
Funkier is one of the first cycling-wear brands to start using seamless technology for some of its elite and premium cycling apparel.
This line of cycling clothes, which includes base layers, jerseys, bibs, tights, socks and leg sleeves, are knit together in a circular seamless construction, creating a one-piece layer that is super comfortable, flexible, and breathable.
The clothes sweat-wicking and anti-chafing, which contributes to the smooth second-skin feeling.
Funkier uses high-quality fabrics for the seamless line, just like in the other premium and elite products. When manufacturing the line, we control the thread count – Making it higher in areas where you need wind protection and resistance, and lower in areas where you need ventilation. This is why it is perfect for any weather condition.
We chose to focus on three products from the elite seamless line: A bib, a short tight and a jersey.
The Potenza Bib
The Potenza seamless bib shorts are engineered for maximum performance, comfort, efficiency, and breathability, while it smoothly wicks away any moisture from your body to help prevent overheating and ensure you stay dry, as the 4-way stretch fabric with the ergonomic fitted cut contours your body, providing you with supreme agility and freedom of movement without any restriction. The new F-14 pad offers extra density for long rides of elite cyclists. Other than support, the F-14 also provides freedom of movement with Quick Dry, anti-microbial fabric and is heat bonded for a seamless fit.
The Valletri Tights
The Velletri seamless cycling shorts is a fast-drying boxer designed for maximum comfort and dryness. The shorts seamless technology and special knitted zones ensure your body is properly ventilated in the right areas. Fashioned from a single block of high-density foam and based on one of Funkier’s most popular pads, the new F-14 pad, gives extra density for long rides of elite cyclists. Add the seamless fit, and you’ve got yourself a new favorite cycling short.
The Allano Jersey
Allano is the lightest jersey you will ever put on. We made it from the lightest fabric and the lightest accessories in the world, including its zipper and gripper. This jersey weighs only 97 grams, compared to a regular equipped bicycle jersey with a zipper and 3 pockets that usually weigh around 200 grams. Because of its lightweight, thin and airy fabric, this jersey will feel like your second skin. The Allano jersey stretches perfectly, has excellent breathability, and dries quickly. It is the optimal choice for performance results during training or racing.
