The emblematic cycling garment: the cycling shorts
Cycling shorts are an essential item of clothing for road cyclists. In fact, they're considered the cyclist's signature garment! This specific garment for the legs was created to solve two problems: provide optimum comfort in the saddle and reduce wind resistance as much as possible. To this end, the inside of the shorts, in contact with the saddle, is padded with a material called "chamois". This padding helps withstand long hours in the saddle and prevents irritation caused by the buttocks rubbing against the saddle. To promote aerodynamics, manufacturers use Lycra, an elastic material that adapts to the cyclist's shape and prevents wrinkles during pedaling.
Cycling shorts are designed to meet individual needs. They incorporate numerous textile technologies to make them ever more comfortable, aerodynamic and lightweight. For a better fit, most cycling shorts are fitted with suspenders, but you can also find them without at Alpinstore. Manufacturers also offer different types of chamois leather to suit different body shapes (men or women) and riding levels (depending on the amount of time spent in the saddle).
MTB shorts, an ally for races and bike rides
Cycling is a sport much appreciated by freedom-lovers and adventure enthusiasts. It's also an activity that requires the right equipment. Sitting in the saddle for long hours can be uncomfortable if you're not properly equipped. That's why it's important to have the right outfit! Opt for cycling shorts specially designed for mountain biking and enjoy your cycling escapades to the full.
