These are made in the USA. They help keep your pants clean and laces out of the gears and chain. It has a reflective strip on the back. Here is some info on how it got started (I love to hear how things were invented):
Jonathan and Jenifer Stark began Exposed Seam out of a mutual love of cycling and style. Jonathan, who has commuted all over Boston by bike for many years engaged Jenifer's MassArt fashion design skills to solve his constant problem of ruined shoelaces and pants. Sympathetic to her husband's plight, the StaySharp Communter Cuff was born.
The first production run was made right in the couple's live/work studio at the 300 Summer St. Artist's Building, and they have since grown their business to enlist the help of a local manufacturing facility in Fall River, MA. Jonathan and Jen are committed to keeping their cuffs made in the USA.
Jonathan's background in video development and marketing coupled with Jenifer's web design and e-commerce skills have also helped make Exposed Seam a home grown venture. They hope to continue to reach new cyclists each year and spread the word that doing what's good for your body and the planet never means having to sacrifice your style.
