Clothing

To fully enjoy your cycling experience, no matter the conditions you’re riding in, the types of clothing you wear is vital. The right cycling clothing can fulfil many different jobs during all types of weather throughout the year; cyclewear must keep the rider warm when cold, dry when wet, cool when warm and sometimes, a combination of all of these at the same time.

Why Choosing The Right Cycling Clothing Is Important

Aside from the obvious (weather protection and safety), why else is it important to choose the correct cycling clothing? 

  • The right fit. Cycling clothes are cut-to-fit; especially helpful for when you’re leaning over handlebars. Shirts and jackets should have a longer back to ensure your lower back is covered, and legwear should have a higher waist to ensure the same effect too. The sleeves of cycling jackets and shirts should also be slightly longer than regular versions to protect the wrists, while the bend of specialist cycle legwear is designed to complement your waist and knees so they don’t impede your pedalling.

  • Movement. Cycling clothes are designed to move with you as you ride; this is especially important for legwear as it’s your legs that will be moving the most on the bike. This is why cycling shorts and tights are made from fabric such as Lycra; it has enough built-in stretch that it doesn’t bunch up and chafe.

  • Handling sweat. If you’ve ever ridden in cotton clothes under a jacket, you will know why specialist cycling clothing isn’t made from the same material; cotton absorbs moisture, rendering your body cold. Clothing that has been specifically designed for exercise are made from fabrics that work to move moisture away from the skin, allowing it to evaporate. It’s what’s known in the trade as ‘wicking’, as it works in the same way as when wax is drawn up a candlewick.

  • Padding. Having extra layers on when cycling is important for a number of reasons; the first being for shock absorption. At our cycling clothing shop in Reading, we have modern shorts pads that have at least one layer of foam inside them (often with more or a different thickness and density). This helps to reduce the shock your backside will experience on the road, as it works with the padding in the saddle. Secondly (and more importantly), having extra padding will help you to avoid the extremely uncomfortable experience of chafing. Another area where extra padding can help is the gloves; proper cycling gloves have pads sewn into the palms to deal with vibration from the handlebars, further making your rides comfortable.

  • Efficiency. Having clothing designed for the rigours of cycling will not only provide protection but also boost performance too; making you go faster by ensuring you don’t waste as much energy. As cycling clothing is more aerodynamic than regular outdoor gear, it fits close to the body, meaning there is no spare fabric flapping about in the breeze. Cycling shoes help to save energy too; their stiff soles ensure that you don’t have to flex the rubber underneath your foot over the pedals. This also makes cycling shoes comfier because the pressure on the pedal will be spread out over your whole foot, rather than one specific area.

So, why not take a look around our range of cycling clothing from our Reading shop to find your perfect fit?
