Vaude Manaki Shorts

If you’ve ever endured a ride so cold it threatened to freeze off your reproductive parts, Vaude’s new Manaki shorts might just keep your lineage in tact. Made of ecologically manufactured materials and insulated with 60-gram PrimaLoft padding, the Manakis—definitely not to be confused with mankini—are meant to be worn over cycling shorts or tights for cold weather cycling. Vaude adds water-resistant stretch inserts at the knees and back of the legs to help the shorts articulate with cycling leg motions. And while we Californian’s have a chuckle over these ‘nad warmers, we know quite a few fatbikers in the upper Midwest who will atestes, err attest, to the legit need for such wares. The Eurobike Award-winning shorts also include an extra long zipper so the shorts can be taken on and off easily without removing your shoes.

About the author: Don Palermini

Chicago-born Don Palermini became a cycling-based life-form in the sixth grade after completing a family road bike tour of his home state. Three years later he bought his first mountain bike to help mitigate the city's pothole-strewn streets, and began exploring the region's unpaved roads and trails. Those rides sparked a much larger journey which includes all manner of bike racing, commuting, on- and off-road bike advocacy, and a 20-plus-year marketing career in the cycling industry that landed him at his current gig with Santa Cruz bicycles. Now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area, his four favorite words in the English language are "breakfast served all day," together in that order.
