You can think of the Swobo Accomplice as the Sanchez evil Brother. It’s basically the same bike, but with a chainring bash guard and extra tire clearance to be able to run some seriously big rubber. Wanna launch curbs? Blast down dirt paths? Not worry about pot holes? Then the Accomplice is your ride. And at also only $550 you can’t go wrong!

Swrve Is Legit

I have a good friend, Nick Murphy – we featured his All City Big Block not long ago, who has been telling me for the last couple of years that I need to get some gear from Swrve. I’ve been riding in Levi Commuters since they first hit the market a few years ago and I still find them to be fantastic, but when we started working up a Swrve order to restock the shop for the Fall I couldn’t help by finally satisfy my curiosity and get Nick Murphy off my back.

I decided on a pair of the Lightweight Slim Trousers in black:

Black TrousersThe Swrve order arrived on a rainy day and the timing could not have been more perfect. I was caught out in the rain without my regular rain gear, apparently I don’t know how to check the weather, and was able to swing by the shop to pick up the wind and water repellent trousers and as an added bonus they were much drier than the regular denim I was wearing. As soon as I threw the trousers on I couldn’t get over how comfortable and flexible they felt. Hopping on the saddle and riding away in the rain was a whole new experience, especially as I saw the water bead up and roll off. They’re comfortable and stylish enough that I may even wear them to the wedding I’m attending next month.

I also snagged the CORDURA® Skinny Fit Jeans in indigo:

Jeans

I got home and decided I couldn’t wait to throw the CORDURA® Skinny Fit Jeans on so I quickly changed. Again, I couldn’t have been more impressed. The fit, the cut, the stretch it’s all perfect. The rear portion of the waist is cut a little higher so you don’t show the world your underwear when you bend over or are in the saddle. There are reflective belt loops, just like the ones found on the trousers, and a reflective strip in the drive-side pant leg if you decide to cuff them.

MOAR JEANS

So all in all, Swrve seriously nails it on all fronts. Style, comfort and practicality all rolled into a quality product specifically designed for cyclists. We got in a few jackets and fleece lined cycling caps as well. The weather just started to turn but I’m already looking forward to next Summer to pick up some of their knickers and shorts as well.
