With many budding new cycling brands hitting the market, it’s no surprise that there are plenty of them we’ve yet to hear about. I first came across Funkier clothing at the Cycle Show earlier this year, and at a glance, I was impressed. Soft and thick thermal fabrics, attractive non-girly designs, I needed a closer inspection… and a ride.
What started out as a women’s fashion label in the US, Funkier soon evolved into a cycling specific brand with avid cyclists throughout their departments. A company who employees passionate riders can ensure their products are fit for purpose, competitive and stylish.
Despite all this, Funkier are still relatively unknown in the UK markets. This may be owing to a number of factors, so we chose to do some extensive product testing of their winter range in order to eliminate one possibility.
Finding the motivation to go out and cycle in these cold wintery days can be tough, but having the right kit to keep you warm and cosy, certainly helps. Armed with thermal tights and wind-stopping fabrics, we took to the rolling roads with Funkier.
