Spring is teasing us with the notion that it's actually going to descend upon San Francisco, and it's conjuring thoughts of long bike rides in Marin, or perhaps—for the Big Little Lies fans—the Sea Otter Classic in Monterrey. The problem? Cycling clothes are hideous, and Bay Area women like to look good while doing active things. Enter, Lexi Miller, a local range of cycling clothes that's actually attractive.

"I started this line to solve a problem," Lexi Miller Founder and Creative Director Alexis Ring said.  "I was an avid cyclist, and I was frustrated by the lack of functional, feminine—not girly—performance-driven, beautiful options for women."  

Her line is produced right here in the Bay Area with textiles that perform, last, feel good on your skin, and are certified to be free of harmful substances.  Pricing starts at $35 for arm warmers and runs up to $215 for a packable vest. Jerseys are $165, shorts are $155, and cycling leggings are $165.

Lexi Miller leads with functional requirements for cycling apparel, but infuses fashionable elements like DVF-esque wrap details and contour color-blocking. Unlike the small/medium/large sizing you often see in cycling, the line eliminates the confusion with a 2-12 size run. The majority of the line is made from a nylon/spandex blend sourced from Italy. It's UPF 50+, and it doesn't fade, over-stretch, or pill.

"Our modern and sophisticated aesthetic allows women to feel more like themselves on the bike— not a watered-down, pinker version of men," Ring said.
