Putting the Funk in Functionality
These clothes will carry you from the city streets to the singletrack, from the coffee shop to the climbing wall.

BIKER GANG
On the left: The outdoor fashionista keeps her cool in a Blurr Eko cotton terry halter top ($35; www.blurrstuff.com) and Napapijri Cabarita cargo pants ($148; www.napapijri.it). Burton's Gravis division makes these no-nonsense Kirra suede flip flops ($30; www.gravisfootwear.com) for warm-weather comfort.

On the right: Salomon's Ivy Stitch tee ($45; www.salomonsports.com) incorporates dry-weave fabric and style-conscious embroidery. The Pucci-inspired Terry ProRacer Skort ($80; www.terrybicycles.com) cushions your ride with attached padded cycling shorts. Teva's Gamma Leather sneakers ($60; www.teva.com) are a far cry from river sandals, but with grippy rubber soles and two-tone suede, they make quite a splash.

Easy Rider
The baseball-style Dakine Tech mountain bike jersey ($45; www.dakine.com) boasts wicking, quick-dry properties. Ciao, Lycra: the nylon, surf-inspired Nema Stone bike trunks ($75; www.nema-usa.com) are loose-cut for tight performance, with a gator system that attaches shell to lining for stability during aggressive riding. Step into Globe Vice skateboard shoes ($55; www.globeshoes.com) for maximum street appeal. The stylie Vector wristband watch ($90; www.nixonnow.com) comes courtesy of the wave mavens at Nixon.
