Keirin Cut Jeans

$116,150

Keirin Cut Jeans are specifically engineered for the athlete's physique.  They provide extra room in the quads and glutes for those powerful, explosive muscles, while maintaining a trim waistline.

Cyclists, runners, soccer players, weight lifters, skiers, skaters, rowers, and cross fitters ... anyone, really, who has found it difficult to fit into jeans, can now enjoy the fit, comfort, and style of Keirin Cut Jeans. 

The athlete's fit

No need to buy jeans a size too large just to fit around your athletic legs!  Our fit is designed for the athlete's body.  Keirin Cut Jeans are made with a specialty denim for a flattering, stylish look that still provides the utmost flexibility and comfort. The jeans feature our slick logo on the left pocket, a unique credit card pocket, a leather patch, and custom buttons and rivets.  These straight leg, dark denim jeans will be your go-to jeans for years to come!  

Product Development. We gathered and analyzed body dimensions from hundreds of real-world athletes from around the globe - and we know you'll feel the difference in our jeans.  These are real world jeans designed for real world athletes.

Produced in the USA.  We are proud that our jeans are 100% manufactured in the USA.

Next Steps: We are ready to go into production!  How can you help?  Be part of our Kickstarter production run!  We will be delivering jeans 45-60 days after the completion of our Kickstarter campaign - and we can't wait to see how you put our jeans in action!  

We are offering 12 different reward levels, to encourage various levels of participation.  All backers will be included on the permanent supporter page on our website. Be sure to check out the early bird special “value bundles” as they won't last long!

Keirin Cut Jeans

A classic straight leg, dark denim jean.  Keirin Cut Jeans are designed for the athletic physique.  The jeans have extra room in the quads and glutes, while holding a fitting waistline.  Available in men and women's straight leg cut. 

When we finish our Kickstarter campaign, we will send out a survey where you can order your size.  We know that buying jeans online can be challenging, so we'll be including a detailed sizing chart, along with a video, where you can measure yourself to determine the size that will fit you best.  We will also be offering one free exchange if you ordered the wrong size.

Men's Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL, 2XL (available in standard and relaxed fit)

Ordering Your Size

At the conclusion of the Kickstarter campaign, all Keirin Cut Jean supporters will be emailed a survey, in which people can order their garment size.  A detailed sizing chart and video will be sent out.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

If you order the wrong size jeans, we offer free exchanges.  (International supporters are subject to a $25 shipping fee for exchanges).

Timeline

We aim to deliver our products as fast as possible.  We have completed our pre-production and have pre-ordered our accessories, so we can place our order as soon as the Kickstarter campaign closes.  Below is an estimated timeline.

Beth Newell, now an aspiring Olympian, was contacted by the New York Times during the London Olympics as a world renowned quad expert. Adil Ababakar read the article, was inspired, and contacted Beth to go into business. The two began developing Keirin Cut Jeans, a clothing company aimed at designing a brand that fits the athletic physique.  Read more about our work the last two years.

Risks and challenges

We've spent two years working on this project, perfecting our jean fit and finding a great manufacturer. We have already reviewed samples and production protoytpes and pre-produced our accessories (i.e. buttons, leather patches, and hangtags) to mitigate as many timing risks as possible. Over the course, we have invested a lot of own capital to fund the design process. This has included: legal fees for trademarks, sampling costs, design fees, and purchasing accessories. This was all done so that when we conclude our Kickstarter campaign, we are ready to go into production and produce our product in a timely fashion for our customers. We are 110% behind this project, along with your support. We will always be transparent with our community about any challenges we may face.

Risk is inherent in any large-scale project and we have mitigation plans in place. Timing of delivery is the biggest risk. We estimate that we can ship 45-60 days from the close of our Kickstarter. As of now we are running green on timelines. We have hedged ourselves against major risks. We will keep our customers up-to-date on any delays.
