Essential elements in your choice of cycling shorts

Your choice of cycling shorts for men will depend on a number of factors, such as the length and frequency of your trips, the type of bike you use, your body type, your comfort and style preferences, and of course, your budget.

Here are a few things to consider when choosingcycling shorts for men:

Padding: Padding is one of the most important features of a cycling shorts. Padding can help reduce friction and rubbing between your body and the saddle, and reduce impact on your pelvic region. Make sure you choose cycling shorts with the right padding for your riding style and comfort needs.

Length: Cycling shorts come in a variety of lengths, from short cycling shorts to long cycling tights. Short cycling shorts are more suitable for short, warm-weather rides, while long cycling tights are more suitable for cold-weather rides. Mid-length cycling shorts are a good option for longer outings.

Material: Cycling shorts are often made from lightweight, breathable, technical materials such as polyester and spandex. These materials help wick away perspiration and maintain a comfortable body temperature while riding.

Fit: Men's cycling shorts are available in a close-fitting cut that follows the contours of your body to minimize chafing and wrinkles, and maximize freedom of movement. Be sure to choose a fit that suits your body type and riding style.

Seams: Seams can affect the comfort of cycling shorts. Look for flat or ergonomic seams that reduce pressure points and chafing.

Price : Men's cycling shorts come in a range of prices. Top-of-the-range models are often more expensive, but offer advanced features such as gel padding and high-quality, breathable fabrics.

Straps: Straps are also important, as they hold the shorts in place. They need to be comfortable and snug-fitting to prevent the shorts from slipping off during practice. They can be made of mesh, elastic or silicone for optimum support.

How to choose the right cycling shorts?

When trying on cycling shorts, it's important to do so in the cycling position, leaning forward. If the shorts come up when you bend over, or if the chamois moves, this means they're too big. If this is the case, it could cause chafing and need to be put back on regularly during your ride, causing you discomfort. On the other hand, if it hugs the thighs too tightly, the straps shear or the seams are too taut, it means it's too small and may compress blood circulation. To find the right size, we recommend trying on one size smaller and one size larger to compare how they feel.

Lycra shorts are highly stretchable and suitable for most athletes. They offer great freedom of movement and support, compressing the legs to improve blood flow to the muscles and reduce fatigue. For optimum performance, the chamois insert should be slightly stretched at the crotch to protect the cyclist. Cycling shorts are most effective when they fit snugly against the body.
