Regardless of the season, when you go out cycling, clothing is the main problem.
Cyclists (both pros and amateurs that cycle simply for hobby) don’t get intimidated because of the weather and, for them, it is always the right moment to go out.
Nevertheless, clothing plays a crucial role: first of all to avoid cold and to feel too hot, secondly to feel comfortable and, consequently, improve the sporty performance.
Obviously, when you go out cycling in winter, not feeling cold is the priority, but at the same time excessive sweat must be avoided.
In summer, the opposite problem presents itself: every sportsman tries to stay fresh and avoid chill, overall if you cycle in the mountains or fresh places.
When it is too cold, it is good to avoid to wear too many clothes not to sweat too much.
Same reasoning is valid also for when temperatures are high: therefore it is important not to wear too light clothes, but clothes thaty are suitable for the surrounding environment and temperature.
In this case, the best solution is represented by wearing several layers: thanks to this strategy you can put on and off clothes according to the moment demand.
The priority must be given to the comfortable and breathable garments, that can both guarantee an adequate sporty performance and prevent you from feeling neither too hot nor too cold.
Neither too col nor too hot: what’s the perfect outfit?
Nevertheless, there are some garments you can’t absolutely give up on, regardless of the season, such as the cycling jersey and shorts endowed with pad.
Obviously, the piece of advice is to opt for technical garments, therefore specific for the sport: starting from the upper part the sleeveless vest turns out to be particularly important, because it is light, comfortable and breathable to prevent the sweat from wetting the worn garments and let the skin breath.
In case the shorts are perceive particularly uncomfortable, you should opt for some cycling bib-shorts, that have be light, breathable, and comfortable, in order to favour your movements and boost your performance.
Instead if it is particularly cold, it is appropriate to protect both the joints and legs muscles: this is the reason why our suggestion is to opt for some cycling long bib-shorts, that cover and warm the whole body even if the weather isn’t particularly good.
