Cycling pants and bib shorts
Padded cycling shorts
To reduce skin irritations caused by contact between the saddle and the lower limbs, padded cycling shorts are the ideal garment. Made of resistant and anti-allergic material, they can be worn both during the hot and cold season. In fact, there are shorts on the market for winter and summer cycling. Thanks to the padding, the athlete can carry out prolonged sessions on two wheels without accusing skin disorders or, in the most serious cases, the formation of painful blisters. As athletes well know, these types of problems can compromise the quality of performance.
The quality of padded cycling shorts
As padding, many cycling shorts have a gel pad instead of the traditional fabric padding. The mechanical properties of the gel are particularly suitable to counteract the pressures caused by the weight of the body on the saddle, as well as to better adapt to the various shapes of the bike seats. The seams of the padded cycling shorts are located in the points least affected by contact with the bicycle, in order to prevent the enlargement of the jerseys over time due to friction between the bodies.
Women's cycling pants
With the increase in cycling also by the female sex, sportswear designers have designed specific women's trousers that adapted to the various garments worn by the athlete. The quality of the lines and fabrics of cycling pants are the result of extensive research in this sports sector. Both for competition and training, this garment plays a key role in protecting the cyclist's most important muscles and improving performance during the race. The pads inserted in the shorts are also designed to avoid sweat stagnation and, thanks to the mechanical movement produced by the athlete, favor its migration to the outside to allow its rapid evaporation.
