Cyclists' world is made of much passion and appropriate clothing too, this enables to practice favourite own sport in complete comfot with any weather condition.
Besides bike, an important role is played for sure by sporty underwear (the one in contact with the skin) that must be endowed with specific features in certain points, for example the ones under stress in typical biker position.
How important is the biker outfit?
Every sportsman that cycles knows the importance of a cycling vest for men and its weave, this must be light, elastic, technical and breathable.
We can state much attention must be paid to sporty underwear in general, that needs specific paddings and seams absence, to avoid any sign on the skin.
Starting from shorts or cyclists bib-shorts to sports vests, it is good to assess its features before the purchase.
For this reason, the most recommended fabric is the technical one, such as the polypropylene in combination with other fibers, because it has several advantages, first among them is moisture release.
It is necessary to understand a synthetic fiber can absorb perspiration produced by physical activity and then get it evaporated very fast, without leaving it in contact with the skin.
This was our problem that occurred with cotton, that absorbed sweat but trapped it in the fiber leaving it on the skin, that became moist and susceptible to cold and “annoying” exhalation.
With polypropylene it is possible to keep the body temperature under control, making training more pleasant and less wet.
Another requirement is related to seams and cuts.
Both must avoid the formation of signs on the skin, so irritations, for this reason the best sporty underwear is made up of seams manufactured thanks to laser that make them flat and adaptable to the epidermis.
With the right clothing the cyclist has no limits
The MTB clothing, with in particular items such as the cycling vest, can contain polyamide, polyester or microfiber, but polypropylene is the only that can’t miss.
This fabric is considered the best one absolutely for bikers because it guarantees great wearability, this means under any garment it doesn’t causes neither pressure, nor stress nor wrinkles that can be very annoying over training.
But not only, polypropylene can offer breathability at 360 degrees, it lets the body breath without reaching high temperatures that force to slow down.
Every passionate athlete knows well every sport demands a determined kind of outfit with a particular focus on the fabric.
A fabric error can cause cooling down and unpleasant feelings.
For this, sporty cycling clothing must suit very tight but without pressing the muscles, leaving great freedom of movement, therefore movements aren’t hindered.
Small, basic rules that must be respected that can make any bike ride very pleasant and comfortable.
