Best Urban Cycling Shorts [Top 20 for Commuters]

It’s that time of year again where many of us whip off our waterproof cycling trousers to uncover our pasty legs ready for summer.

In this guide to the best urban cycling shorts for both men and women, we’ll run through a bunch of really good cycling shorts that are perfect for urban and commuter cyclists.

Rapha Randonnee Shorts

Stylish Cycling Shorts – Not Lycra!

First off, let’s emphasise that Discerning Cyclist is a Lycra-free zone (although we do make exceptions if something doesn’t look overtly “Lycra-y”). Our mantra is that “we don’t want cycling clothes – we want stylish clothes we can cycle in”. That means we love clothes that:

  • Look great for urban life
  • Feel great in general
  • Boast discreet functionality for cycling

Simple.



What Are the Best Commuter Bike Shorts?

So, what makes a pair of good cycling shorts for urban rides?

Well, for starters, flexible material is a must in order to ensure cycling stays comfortable and your bike shorts don’t rip. A gusseted crotch is also a bonus to ensuring your cycling shorts stand the test of time, while bonus points are also awarded for having moisture-wicking properties, strong, stretchy material, a raised-back and for being waterproof and good-looking. Oh, and pockets. Secure pockets.

So, with that in mind, let’s start by looking for the best men’s bicycle shorts for urban cyclists (ladies, you can skip to the best women’s cycling shorts section by clicking here).

The front of the shorts feature two pockets, while the rear has a handy button down and a zipped pocket. Another useful feature for cycling is the fold away high-vis tab which can add a bit more security to your right after the sun goes down.

Rapha are known for their attention to detail, and that’s why you won’t be surprised to find these city cycling shorts also feature a high-cut back to prevent unwanted backside exposure when riding, as well as discreet hi-vis detailing.

Off the bike, they look great and can be dressed up with a smart dress shirt for evening activites or dressed down with a tee or polo for a trip to the beach (“Strandvägen” is actually Swedish for “beach road”).

  • Up to 10x more stretchy than traditional woven fabrics

I’ve covered DUER a few times on Discerning Cyclist, from reviewing their excellent No Sweat Pants to visiting their head office/shop in Vancouver.

Indeed, I’ve also become acquainted with DUER’s Live Lite commuter shorts during the past couple of years and they’re absolutely top notch.

These are slim-fit performance shorts, made from a blend of cotton and breathable materials to keep you feeling fresh on warmer days. They’re also soft against the skin and have moisture-wicking and anti-bacterial properties due to the TENCEL Lyocell material which is derived from eucalyptus.

DUER’s Live Lite Journey Shorts are cut just above the knee and are extremely stretchy. You can easily squat in them without busting seams, so cycling is no problem.  

There’s no gusseted crotch in these shorts, so if you’re really clocking up the miles they might start wearing out at some point.

But if you’re bouncing around town on your bike in the summer, you won’t find a more stylish pair of casual cycling shorts.

Colours:

Pockets:

  • Two front hand pockets
  • Two buttoned rear pockets
  • One side zipped pocket (fits a small phone/wallet)

27 Sweat Shorts For Sunny Spring Days

Trusty matching sweatsuits have been delivering us all sorts of comfort throughout life on lockdown. We’d even go so far as to say this garment has taken on the role of a supportive friend — because who else is gonna wrap us up in a cozy cotton embrace at all hours of the day? But the more the sun shines, the more that friendly hug-like feel turns into a clingy suffocating grip on our legs. So, as warmer days swing on in, we’ve temporarily traded in our beloved sweatpants for a pair of barely-there sweat shorts. A not-so-distant cousin to the sweatpant, these abbreviated versions offer the same level of snuggle but better suited to a warmer climate. By only removing about 3/4 of its fabric, the comforting core of the garment is maintained while our sweaty limbs are set free — whether that’s for a vitamin D-drenched walk outside or an all-night couch party in front of your TV. However you plan on enjoying spring, we highly suggest doing so in the kind of clothing you can count on to keep you looking and feeling cool — and we’ve rounded up 27 sweat shorts that are just that.

Best cycling base layers: body temperature and moisture management done right

It may seem a humble garment, but the best cycling base layers should form the foundation of your kit when you’re choosing what to wear on a road ride. Not only can they provide an extra layer of warmth when paired with the best cycling jerseys, they can enhance your performance all year round by regulating your body temperature and managing moisture build-up to keep you feeling fresh throughout your ride.

Since they’re designed to move sweat away from your skin, good quality cycling base layers should be comfortable and close-fitting. A great base layer will incorporate technical materials to function in specific conditions – whether that’s facilitating air flow on a hot day or trapping air to keep you warm when it’s chilly – so it’s important to consider the weather and type of riding it will be used for.

For hot weather riding or indoor cycling workouts, a light cycling base layer will move sweat away from the skin and aid evaporation, which helps you stay cool despite the heat. The enhanced evaporation effect cools the body and keeps skin drier to stop irritation from your clothing. 

More commonly, base layers are used as an added warm layer on cold days, although a high-performing insulating base layer will still manage moisture build-up during climbing efforts.

In the list below, we take a look at the pros and cons of the best cycling base layers available today for both warm and cold climates. Or, if you’re not sure what you need, skip to the bottom to find out what to look for in a cycling base layer.

Italian sizing

The Castelli Pro Issue sits in the middle of Castelli’s base layer range and is designed to offer comfort in temperatures between 10-25 degrees C which should make it ideal for UK summers.

Castelli has used a light 3D mesh fabric which draws sweat away from your body through capillary action to keep you dry and comfortable while riding.

The seams around the collar have been kept to a minimum as well as a flat hem around the waist to reduce points of irritation and allow the Pro Issue to sit flat under your cycling kit. The wide collar of the Pro Issue will play well with aero and tight-collared jerseys.

dhb offers its versatile Merino cycling base layers with a range of warmth and sleeve options at a very competitive price

Sleeve Options: Long / short | Material: Merino wool | Colours: Three

Value

Versatile

Different material thicknesses

 Doesn’t dry quickly 

dhb’s Merino M_200’s natural wicking and thermoregulation merino wool creates the foundations for a cycling base layer that will work equally well off the bike. 

Using flat-lock stitching, the cut is close to the body but not so cycling-specific that you can’t wear it off the bike for other outdoor activities. The Merino M_200 suits being worn as a next-to-skin layer with a winter kit for cold days, or on its own for relaxed rides, commuting and touring when the weather is milder.

Made from superfine Australian merino yarn, the Merino M_200 is a mid-weight base layer that is suited to the colder months. M_200 refers to the weight of the merino wool and dhb offers a lighter M_150 version if you don’t need as much warmth. The Merino M_200 is also available in a high zip-neck version for extra draft protection.

What to look for in a cycling base layer

1. Materials

Different materials play a big part as to how a base layer will perform and the environments that they will excel in. These materials are generally split into two groups, man-made synthetic fabrics or natural materials.

Synthetic fabrics are often used for high-performance cycling base layers, suited to warm weather or indoor training, where sweat management and cooling effects are important. The stretch achieves a close fit to maximise wicking abilities to move sweat away from the body during a hard climb or during an intense Zwift session. 

Natural materials such as merino wool don’t wick or dry as quickly, however, they allow effective thermoregulation across a wide range of temperatures, making them extremely versatile. When wet, natural fabrics like merino still retain their insulating properties which makes them perfect for poor weather climates. Natural materials are also more resistant to unpleasant odours from riding; ideal if you are commuting to and from work or doing multi-day rides away from home.

2. Fit

The best cycling base layers should have a next-to-skin fit to offer maximum performance. Sitting close to the body will allow moisture to be wicked away effectively, and minimise any bunching which would cause discomfort when worn under other layers. High-performance race-focussed base layers will feature flat-lock stitching, a wide collar to fit beneath skinsuits, and a pre-shaped cut optimised for an aggressive riding position. For longer or relaxed riding, a casual cut will appeal, which relies on the material’s stretch to provide a close, comfortable fit on and off the bike.

3. Long sleeves, short sleeves or sleeveless

Most cycling base layers will come in a selection of sleeve options. Generally, short or sleeveless base layers are used for hot or changeable conditions as they will fit comfortably under a regular jersey and can be paired with the best arm warmers or a gilet if temperatures are changeable. Long sleeves are the reserve of cold weather when you will be wearing other long sleeve layers all day. Pair with a long sleeve insulated jersey or jacket to keep your upper body toasty when the mercury drops.

4. Features

Some base layers will offer extra features to excel in specific conditions. Super thin mesh material side panels enhance breathability during max efforts in the hottest temperatures. Windproofing, water resistance, a high collar, or even a built-in balaclava hood are all important considerations if you are frequently riding headfirst into winter.

It may seem a humble garment, but the best cycling base layers should form the foundation of your kit when you’re choosing what to wear on a road ride. Not only can they provide an extra layer of warmth when paired with the best cycling jerseys, they can enhance your performance all year round by regulating your body temperature and managing moisture build-up to keep you feeling fresh throughout your ride.

Since they’re designed to move sweat away from your skin, good quality cycling base layers should be comfortable and close-fitting. A great base layer will incorporate technical materials to function in specific conditions – whether that’s facilitating air flow on a hot day or trapping air to keep you warm when it’s chilly – so it’s important to consider the weather and type of riding it will be used for.

Versatile

Different material thicknesses

 Doesn’t dry quickly 

dhb’s Merino M_200’s natural wicking and thermoregulation merino wool creates the foundations for a cycling base layer that will work equally well off the bike. 

Using flat-lock stitching, the cut is close to the body but not so cycling-specific that you can’t wear it off the bike for other outdoor activities. The Merino M_200 suits being worn as a next-to-skin layer with a winter kit for cold days, or on its own for relaxed rides, commuting and touring when the weather is milder.

Made from superfine Australian merino yarn, the Merino M_200 is a mid-weight base layer that is suited to the colder months. M_200 refers to the weight of the merino wool and dhb offers a lighter M_150 version if you don’t need as much warmth. The Merino M_200 is also available in a high zip-neck version for extra draft protection.

What to look for in a cycling base layer

1. Materials

Different materials play a big part as to how a base layer will perform and the environments that they will excel in. These materials are generally split into two groups, man-made synthetic fabrics or natural materials.

Synthetic fabrics are often used for high-performance cycling base layers, suited to warm weather or indoor training, where sweat management and cooling effects are important. The stretch achieves a close fit to maximise wicking abilities to move sweat away from the body during a hard climb or during an intense Zwift session. 

Natural materials such as merino wool don’t wick or dry as quickly, however, they allow effective thermoregulation across a wide range of temperatures, making them extremely versatile. When wet, natural fabrics like merino still retain their insulating properties which makes them perfect for poor weather climates. Natural materials are also more resistant to unpleasant odours from riding; ideal if you are commuting to and from work or doing multi-day rides away from home.

2. Fit

The best cycling base layers should have a next-to-skin fit to offer maximum performance. Sitting close to the body will allow moisture to be wicked away effectively, and minimise any bunching which would cause discomfort when worn under other layers. High-performance race-focussed base layers will feature flat-lock stitching, a wide collar to fit beneath skinsuits, and a pre-shaped cut optimised for an aggressive riding position. For longer or relaxed riding, a casual cut will appeal, which relies on the material’s stretch to provide a close, comfortable fit on and off the bike.

3. Long sleeves, short sleeves or sleeveless

Most cycling base layers will come in a selection of sleeve options. Generally, short or sleeveless base layers are used for hot or changeable conditions as they will fit comfortably under a regular jersey and can be paired with the best arm warmers or a gilet if temperatures are changeable. Long sleeves are the reserve of cold weather when you will be wearing other long sleeve layers all day. Pair with a long sleeve insulated jersey or jacket to keep your upper body toasty when the mercury drops.

4. Features

Some base layers will offer extra features to excel in specific conditions. Super thin mesh material side panels enhance breathability during max efforts in the hottest temperatures. Windproofing, water resistance, a high collar, or even a built-in balaclava hood are all important considerations if you are frequently riding headfirst into winter.

It may seem a humble garment, but the best cycling base layers should form the foundation of your kit when you’re choosing what to wear on a road ride. Not only can they provide an extra layer of warmth when paired with the best cycling jerseys, they can enhance your performance all year round by regulating your body temperature and managing moisture build-up to keep you feeling fresh throughout your ride.

Since they’re designed to move sweat away from your skin, good quality cycling base layers should be comfortable and close-fitting. A great base layer will incorporate technical materials to function in specific conditions – whether that’s facilitating air flow on a hot day or trapping air to keep you warm when it’s chilly – so it’s important to consider the weather and type of riding it will be used for.

For hot weather riding or indoor cycling workouts, a light cycling base layer will move sweat away from the skin and aid evaporation, which helps you stay cool despite the heat. The enhanced evaporation effect cools the body and keeps skin drier to stop irritation from your clothing. 

More commonly, base layers are used as an added warm layer on cold days, although a high-performing insulating base layer will still manage moisture build-up during climbing efforts.

In the list below, we take a look at the pros and cons of the best cycling base layers available today for both warm and cold climates. Or, if you’re not sure what you need, skip to the bottom to find out what to look for in a cycling base layer.

Italian sizing

The Castelli Pro Issue sits in the middle of Castelli’s base layer range and is designed to offer comfort in temperatures between 10-25 degrees C which should make it ideal for UK summers.

Castelli has used a light 3D mesh fabric which draws sweat away from your body through capillary action to keep you dry and comfortable while riding.

The seams around the collar have been kept to a minimum as well as a flat hem around the waist to reduce points of irritation and allow the Pro Issue to sit flat under your cycling kit. The wide collar of the Pro Issue will play well with aero and tight-collared jerseys.

Castelli has used a light 3D mesh fabric which draws sweat away from your body through capillary action to keep you dry and comfortable while riding.

The seams around the collar have been kept to a minimum as well as a flat hem around the waist to reduce points of irritation and allow the Pro Issue to sit flat under your cycling kit. The wide collar of the Pro Issue will play well with aero and tight-collared jerseys.

What to look for in a cycling base layer

1. Materials

Different materials play a big part as to how a base layer will perform and the environments that they will excel in. These materials are generally split into two groups, man-made synthetic fabrics or natural materials.

Synthetic fabrics are often used for high-performance cycling base layers, suited to warm weather or indoor training, where sweat management and cooling effects are important. The stretch achieves a close fit to maximise wicking abilities to move sweat away from the body during a hard climb or during an intense Zwift session. 

Natural materials such as merino wool don’t wick or dry as quickly, however, they allow effective thermoregulation across a wide range of temperatures, making them extremely versatile. When wet, natural fabrics like merino still retain their insulating properties which makes them perfect for poor weather climates. Natural materials are also more resistant to unpleasant odours from riding; ideal if you are commuting to and from work or doing multi-day rides away from home.

2. Fit

The best cycling base layers should have a next-to-skin fit to offer maximum performance. Sitting close to the body will allow moisture to be wicked away effectively, and minimise any bunching which would cause discomfort when worn under other layers. High-performance race-focussed base layers will feature flat-lock stitching, a wide collar to fit beneath skinsuits, and a pre-shaped cut optimised for an aggressive riding position. For longer or relaxed riding, a casual cut will appeal, which relies on the material’s stretch to provide a close, comfortable fit on and off the bike.

3. Long sleeves, short sleeves or sleeveless

Most cycling base layers will come in a selection of sleeve options. Generally, short or sleeveless base layers are used for hot or changeable conditions as they will fit comfortably under a regular jersey and can be paired with the best arm warmers or a gilet if temperatures are changeable. Long sleeves are the reserve of cold weather when you will be wearing other long sleeve layers all day. Pair with a long sleeve insulated jersey or jacket to keep your upper body toasty when the mercury drops.

4. Features

Some base layers will offer extra features to excel in specific conditions. Super thin mesh material side panels enhance breathability during max efforts in the hottest temperatures. Windproofing, water resistance, a high collar, or even a built-in balaclava hood are all important considerations if you are frequently riding headfirst into winter.

Newcomers to cycling often focus on choosing the model of the future vehicle, leaving equipment behind the scenes. And in vain, because cycling clothing provides the cyclist with freedom of movement and comfort in any weather conditions.

The need for cycling became apparent almost simultaneously with the invention of the bicycle.

A bit of history

The first cyclists dressed in the fashion of their time.Trousers, frock coats, shoes and bowlers – noble, decorous and very uncomfortable. But it soon became apparent that you had to change your clothes to ride a bike.

Already in the 1880s, tailors began to sew suits for cyclists, which brought them considerable profits, and their customers the opportunity to dress comfortably and practically for cycling and cycling.

A typical cyclist costume of the 90s of the XIX century consisted of loose cropped trousers just above the knees, stockings, shoes, a short jacket and a headdress (cap or hat).

Since clothing for cyclists must absorb moisture from the body well and dry quickly, suits were made of wool or woolen flannel (a fabric of plain or twill weave, with a fluffy uniform sparse fleece). The use of cotton fabrics was strongly discouraged.

Women also defended their right to a “rational suit” for cycling, although they had to fight for it. Representatives of the beautiful half of humanity for cycling began to dress in blouses, under which they did not wear corsets, and in harem pants, reminiscent of a wide ankle-length skirt.

At the beginning of the 20th century, cyclists’ clothing was divided into amateur (male and female)

a

and sportswear (with features of the “unisex” style)

b

. T-shirts and thin sweaters, knee-length breeches, cycling shorts, gaiters and stiff shoes were found to be the most comfortable and practical for cycling.

The entire subsequent history of cycling suits is associated with their “upgrade” and the emergence of new fabrics that meet the requirements of hygiene as much as possible.

Materials and fabrics

The fabric from which the cycling suit is made must “breathe”, preventing overheating and cooling of the body. Manufacturers use both natural and synthetic fabrics. Which one to give preference to?

Cotton

Extremely environmentally friendly and highly absorbent.

Has a large shrinkage during washing and wrinkles easily. Does not protect against rain.

Linen

Moisture-absorbing, does not irritate the skin, has good light fastness.

Poorly stretched, easily deformed and wrinkled. Does not have moisture protection properties.

Fabrics made of synthetic fibers

Polyester & Polyamide, Lycra, Elastane, Spandex. The list is constantly growing as manufacturers invest heavily in the development of new hygienic cycling fabrics.

The main advantages of synthetic fabrics:

elasticity;

absorbency;

resistance to light and heat;

fast drying;

shape retention;

long service life.

Cycling clothes for summer

Cycling and cycling shorts or cycling shorts are the main components of the summer uniform.

Cycling shorts and cycling shorts

Some manufacturers combine bike shorts

a

and shorts

b

in one category, there is a difference between them: some are tight, while others are not, because they have a looser fit.

The main feature of the cycling shorts is the presence of a special pad, a multi-layer antibacterial diaper

c

, which prevents the occurrence of abrasions while riding.It is not recommended to wear synthetic underwear under the shorts.

Cycling shorts can be with
straps

d

or without. The straps allow the panties not to slip and to sit more tightly. They are made of mesh material

e

, therefore they perfectly wick moisture away.

Heatstroke is the main danger of summer riding, so summer cycling clothing must protect from the sun, provide perfect body ventilation and effectively wick moisture away from the skin.

Velomike

For summer skiing, it is better to choose a T-shirt with short sleeves

a

and always with open patch pockets.The pockets are usually elastic and are located on the back

b

, so they do not interfere with the cyclist, who is constantly in an inclined position. They are convenient for storing a phone or something else of a small size.

The back shirts are always longer than the front

c

– this is necessary to protect the lower back when bent.
Armpit nets improve ventilation during intense movement

d

, and a high stand-up collar

e

protects the neck from burning.

Windbreaker

Windbreaker is another essential part of summer cycling equipment. It is indispensable both in rain and in strong winds.

As a rule, windbreakers are made of membrane, breathable materials

and

, capable of keeping the body dry for a long time, providing effective moisture wicking and excellent ventilation. Cyclists have enjoyed great success with windbreakers made of 100% polyurethane, which are durable, durable, as well as soft and elastic.Thanks to the extended backrest

b

, the windbreaker perfectly protects against dirt that flies from under the rear wheel.

The reflective element on the back of the windbreaker

c

makes the cyclist visible on the road in the dark.

Cycling clothes for winter

Cycling clothing for “cold” riding should be multi-layered: thermal underwear

a

, cycling jacket

b

, cycling jacket

c

and cycling pants.

Thermal underwear

First of all, thermal underwear is necessary for winter.Since it is worn directly on the body, it should ideally wick away moisture.

The composition of thermal underwear includes: cotton

a

, wool

b

, polyester or polypropylene

c

.

The more synthetic fibers in thermal underwear , the better it removes moisture, absorbs sweat, keeping it dry and warm.

Wool absorbs sweat and remains moist, while continuing to retain heat. Keep this in mind when choosing thermal underwear.

Velokofta

The middle layer of clothing is a long-sleeved sweatshirt. Top layer – quick-drying, easy-to-clean fabric

a

, which protects from wind and rain. Bottom layer – fleece
lining

b

, keeping warm.

Functional models are sweaters with detachable sleeves with a zipper

a

.

Cycling jacket and trousers

We approach the choice of a cycling jacket and trousers especially carefully, since this is the uppermost layer of equipment that should protect against winter bad weather.

The jacket and trousers should be made of windproof material windstopper

a

with a membrane fabric that wicks moisture away and from the inside insulated with a layer of fleece

b

, since such a structure wicks away sweat well, at the same time preventing a sharp cooling of the body when stopping. Trousers should be tapered downwards

to

so that the floors do not wrap around the sprocket and they do not restrict movement.

Vest – in case the weather is cool, but it is still hot in the jacket.

Clothes for winter skiing should be tight-fitting so that excess cold air does not get inside.

Cycling shorts (cycling pants with diapers)

Many experienced cyclists looking to cycle more deeply are considering buying cycling equipment for more effective training.In summer, it is most pleasant to ride in shorts, or, as they are also called, in cycling shorts. What cycling shorts are and how to choose them?

Shorts are, firstly, male and female. Women’s shorts are more fitted due to the specifics of ladies’ figures. Men are more “square”. Also, the difference is that girls tend to prefer shorter legs than men. If you do not have a pronounced female or male body type, it makes no difference which panties to wear.

Cycling shorts are available in tight and non-tight.The latter flutter in the wind, impairing the aerodynamic properties of clothing.

Low Waist Shorts

What are they for?

If you only leave home for a ride in the yard or in the park, then there is no need to buy special equipment. But if you plan to travel long distances, then cycling shorts are what you need.

Functions of cycling shorts:

  • Cycling shorts are made from materials that do not irritate the skin when rubbed.You will feel comfortable in them after many hours of driving.
  • Stretch fabric wraps tightly around the muscles for improved aerodynamics.
  • Pampers wick away sweat and also provide a soft padding between the rider’s buttocks and saddle, protecting against chafing.

Build

Cycling pants and shorts are available with or without padding. We will talk about the merits of the former a little later. Cycling shorts without a diaper are cheaper than with one.

Types of cuts

Cycling shorts are made from 4 pieces of fabric, 6 or 8.The more parts are used for sewing, the more comfortable it will be for the cyclist to bend the legs. More pieces of fabric fit the leg tighter in any position.

More expensive models are usually made of eight parts.

When trying on your bike shorts, make sure they don’t stretch too much when you bend your leg. The shorts should not squeeze anything and cause you inconvenience.

Material

Panties are made only of elastic materials.Most often they are made from spandex, which stretches well and resists wear and tear. As you know, the skin needs to breathe, especially when exercising. Spandex does not provide such an opportunity, and it removes sweat poorly, so other fibers are added to it, which contribute to good moisture wicking.

There is only one rule to remember: choose the shorts that most closely resemble cotton. Such shorts are superior in all respects.

Cycling shorts with protection

Cuffs

Briefs always have silicone strips on the edge of the leg.This is what sets cycling equipment apart from any other. These strips keep the garment in one position and prevent the pant leg from pulling up.

Waist

The elastic at the waist holds the shorts on top to prevent them from falling or rolling. For added comfort, many also have a strap that can be tightened to fit your waist.

Some people are uncomfortable in these shorts, they can press too hard on the stomach. If you are one of those people, then for you there is a solution: you can buy shorts with shoulder straps.They will definitely not subside and will not cause you discomfort.

How to choose a diaper?

Building

Pampers consists of several parts.

  • One part is made of fleece, which contributes to better adhesion of the diaper pants to the skin.
  • The second contains antibacterial impregnation. Bacteria love sweat and heat, so they actively multiply there. We need to stop this business with the help of special substances.
  • Lining that wicks away sweat.
  • Sometimes a diaper also consists of a side pad, which also removes sweat and moisture, less often it also has an antibacterial effect.

Fox Racing Titan Race Bicycle Shorts have additional padding on the back and sides

Types

There are 7 types of diapers:

The type of diaper is chosen by each person independently, depending on gender, riding style and individual characteristics of the body.

Each of these diapers can be very thin or, conversely, thick.

Cycling shorts care

Cyclists’ briefs should be washed every day, as they must be worn without your everyday briefs. The antibacterial coating of the diaper is needed to preserve tissue, not human health. Bacteria that are harmful to the rider accumulate on the underpants. It’s best to have multiple pairs of bike shorts to change every ride.

Be sure to read the label and adhere to all washing conditions.

Cycling shorts with a thick women’s diaper

Please note:

  • Buy briefs only when you are sure that they are not tight anywhere and fit the body exactly.
  • More expensive cycling shorts are not always the best. Even from budget models, you can find a quality model.
  • The type of diaper that suits you can only be selected by trial. You may feel comfortable when trying on, but not very comfortable in the saddle.
  • If you have insufficiently developed abdominal muscles, it is better to buy shorts with shoulder straps.
  • Decide for yourself: are you more comfortable wearing a light and good sweat-wicking fabric or a heavy but good muscle support?
  • The length of the shorts can be from very short (7 cm) to long (28 cm).Try on all types and decide which is more convenient for you.

You will surely notice the difference between riding in regular clothes and cycling shorts. If you ride every day, then they will be very useful for you. Be sure to try on panties before buying, and in the position in which you are sitting on the saddle! There shouldn’t be any discomfort, otherwise in the future your bike ride will turn into not a very pleasant pastime.

Cycling Briefs & Shorts

Choosing cycling shorts

Cycling clothing is a constant topic of discussion and discussion.And they begin to talk about it especially violently with the onset of warm weather. Only on the street it gets warmer, the sun peeps out, right there all professional cyclists and amateurs just take their iron horses and go ahead, conquer the expanses of their native city.

Many people ask questions whether it is worth buying all the outfit for cycling or whether you can do with the usual sports uniform, whether you need cycling shorts or a cycling t-shirt with cycling gloves and cycling boots, etc.

Note

When the question of choosing cycling shorts arises, a lot of controversial arguments appear: which one to choose, how to choose the size and many other questions of interest to athletes.

Cycling shorts are more difficult to choose than any other cycling clothing and therefore, having read the material in detail, you will learn how to choose cycling shorts, and this article will talk about their error-free purchase.

Some inconveniences of cycling shorts

The main obstacle is lycra, which tightly wraps around the legs of the cyclist, making the athlete look a little ridiculous.

Therefore, people who are very shy about tight clothes, if, for example, colleagues at work or just passers-by see them, it is worth taking cycling shorts just for riding.If you are a person without complexes, then you will not be at all embarrassed by such a trifle.

What are the advantages of cycling shorts

The main advantage of cycling shorts is to prevent chafing between the legs and soften the ride when hitting bumps or suddenly driving into pits.

But you also need to select a saddle correctly for your body anatomy, because no cycling shorts and gel pads will improve a saddle with initially poor geometry and poor fillings.

Cut

Cycling shorts are usually made from several pieces of fabric.The more pieces of fabric were used in the manufacture, the more the curved shape can be observed in the end.

Usually all the best designs are embroidered in eight pieces. In any case, no matter how many parts the shorts are made of, the most important thing is that there is a correct fit at your waist (not lower or higher), and also that nothing is squeezed.

If you are uncomfortable with the seams, in the crotch area, note, at this stage of time, seamless cycling shorts are already being made.

Differences between men’s and women’s cycling shorts

Both women and men can, in principle, wear cycling shorts, sewn in the same pattern, starting from the hip and below.

But here we can observe one feature: significant differences in the waist. Women’s cycling shorts for a thin and long waist should be specifically fitted.

Many females often prefer cropped legs, which is not the case for men.

Therefore, men’s cycling shorts should be sewn so that the quadriceps is covered by the leg.

But in fact, all people have different sizes, and these are shorts for men or women that do not play a big role.

Take, for example, a curvaceous woman – she clearly does not fit cropped trousers, so it would be better for her to choose a male type of cycling shorts, in which she will be more comfortable.

Types of cycling shorts

Padded Cycling Shorts

Cycling shorts with a diaper are now sewn from synthetic materials, and not like in the old days they were sewn from suede.

But this is for the best, because synthetics absorb moisture better, do not crack, than natural material cannot boast, which does not have such properties and, as a result, causes more discomfort.

But here, too, of course, a very important criterion is the very quality of the synthetic diaper.

Important

The best for use is a one-piece, quick-wicking, medium-thick cycle ramp.

Pads with seams or various indentations may suit some and cause great discomfort to some; therefore, when choosing such, you should definitely carry out a thorough fitting.

Do not take cycling shorts with thick pads or gel diapers!

The straps in cycling shorts are primarily used to secure and avoid unnecessary irritation.

For men – so that their male organ is motionless when riding while standing, which is very convenient, but there is also a minus: you have to cope with the need a little more difficult with straps.

And women usually choose panties without straps, since they have nothing to fix, and if necessary, taking off the bike will also cause some inconvenience and time consuming.

Cycling shorts with shoulder straps are usually more expensive than those without them.

Cycling shorts with protection

Will protect your legs from various injuries and bruises.

A useful option for cycling shorts is the presence of a mesh. The net on them will be very useful, especially in summer, in hot weather. Provides a comfortable breeze ride. The mesh on the sides of the shorts will provide adequate airflow to your lower body.

Cycling shorts size

Many people are interested in the question of how to choose the right cycling shorts of the right size?

As a rule, the sizes are standard and are divided into: S, M, X, XL.But here the size depends on the manufacturer and the country that orders this product.

When purchasing a product, without considering the fact that you know your exact size, you need to try it on. There are bike shops that allow you to fit on your bike.

Under this condition, you need to immediately and not hesitate to do it, since standing, the shorts sit one at a time, and on the seat in a completely different way. It is worth choosing such a size so that it fits you as much as possible, but at the same time does not tighten too much.

In no case should anything and anywhere should rub or interfere with you, causing discomfort!

Also, there should be no free space and puffs.

Tight Cycling Shorts – Real Necessity or Design for Athletes

An inexhaustible spring theme – is it mandatory to wear cycling clothing or is it just for sports use. And if beginners have almost no objections about cycling shirts, then there are heated debates about cycling shorts.

The main obstacle is the appearance, lycra, which fits the cyclist’s sirloin parts, it even comes to ridiculousness, the reader writes: “on your advice I bought cycling shorts with a diaper, it is very convenient to ride, it does not rub anywhere, but I will not wear it – I’m afraid that someone then they will see it from colleagues, then they will laugh at work ”.

Unfortunately, even now there are enough of those who are ashamed of tight cycling clothes, but what was before … I started skating nine years ago, and what is interesting, in Scotland people sometimes looked with surprise, and in Estonia the number of Catalans in cycling uniform was already off scale then. nobody paid attention to me.

“Cycling shorts with diapers – Bicycle Crimea

05/21/2013

Needless to say, good cycling shorts, with special “diapers” sewn inside, are, above all, complete comfort while riding.This is especially felt after 14-15 kilometers of cycling.

Then you understand that the quality of the material from which the “diaper” is made and its thickness have a completely definite meaning and purpose.
So about the quality: the material of manufacture is dense nylon. Inside the cycling shorts are sewn thin elastic cycling briefs with “diapers” that fit the body tightly.

By the way, you can buy cycling shorts separately. This will already depend on your taste, riding style and financial capabilities.

The history of special cycling shorts goes back a long way.

Since ancient times, when mankind invented the bicycle and began to actively use it for walks, trips and travel.

The more people cycled, the more they began to realize that regular pants and shorts are not the most comfortable clothes for cycling.

The first cycling shorts appeared at the beginning of the last century, were made of durable woolen fabric and had a design similar to regular pants and shorts.

Later, for better aerodynamics, they began to use a denser and more elastic fabric, and the panties themselves began to be sewn from several panels of fabric, which contributed to a better fit of the panties to the curves of the body and reduced wear of the fabric.

Note

Such tight cycling shorts have already become much more comfortable than ordinary sailing trousers and shorts, however, there was one serious problem – the seams intersecting in the center of the crotch rubbed the skin, creating discomfort.

And this problem was soon resolved! To cover the seams, a piece of soft suede was sewn into the crotch of the legs of the cycling shorts.Sheepskin was chosen as the material for suede, which has been used for centuries to strengthen clothing in places where additional protection and flexibility is needed. Since then, suede on the crotch has become a familiar and integral part of cycling briefs.

Black woolen pants with suede remained a constant attribute of cycling almost until the 70s of the last century, and in Russia they were used even in the early 90s. Many of our famous cyclists, such as Denis Menshov, Alexander Kolobnev, probably still remember how they learned the basics of cycling in such black woolen shorts.

Much has changed in bike shorts design over the past 30+ years.

Advances in technology have brought many improvements and innovations. In the 70s, heavy and too dense woolen fabrics, which poorly removes heat and moisture from the body, were replaced by a lighter, highly elastic spandex fabric, which later received the trade name “Lycra”.

Unlike woolen shorts, lycra bike shorts have become much more comfortable, lighter, more aerodynamic and, most importantly, much more comfortable.

Instead of suede, they began to use synthetic, “breathable” hypoallergenic materials, softer and more resistant to wear, effectively removing moisture and excess heat.

In Russia, the lining received the popular name “diaper”, although, of course, it has nothing to do with a baby diaper and the purpose is very different.

So why are they needed and can we do without them?

Of course, if you just want to cycle in the yard for a bit, then there is no need for cycling shorts, but for long cycling trips, cycling tours and cycling, padded cycling shorts are a must.Useful functions of cycling shorts:

– elastic lycra, from which the cycling shorts are made, tightly hugs the thighs, improving aerodynamics and supporting the muscles of the legs, the sweat released from the skin easily passes through the lycra and evaporates.

– pad-diaper is a soft pad between the bike saddle and the body. It is necessary to sit comfortably on the bike saddle. After all, even after spending several hours in a soft car seat, a soft seat gets tired, and a bicycle saddle is much inferior to a car seat in terms of area and softness.

Accordingly, without padded cycling shorts, instead of the pleasure of cycling, you can get tortured.

In addition to this important function, the diaper lining performs several more equally important functions – it covers the seams, thus, protecting the skin from chafing, removes excess heat and moisture, which, with the correct selection of cycling shorts, avoids irritation of the skin in places of friction, even with very long trips.

Important

Antibacterial impregnation of the diaper pad protects against skin inflammation, preventing bacteria from developing in such an attractive warm and humid environment.

Highlights for road cyclists:

  • Segmented design: the best number of segments, usually 6 or 8, results in a more comfortable fit. So far, this remains relevant, but recently textile technology has stepped forward and there are new types of diapers for which this rule: the more segments – the more convenient, does not apply, they may even lack a segment structure.
  • Softening layer.Usually made of soft, delicate fabric (artificial suede), which reduces friction, breathes and absorbs moisture well, absorbs shock and vibration, and also uses special materials with antibacterial properties. This is the most difficult part in cycling shorts. We add that there are many diapers of different shapes, thicknesses, softness, made from different materials, by different manufacturers.
  • The figure shows one of the common types:
  • distributed density, foam layer for comfort on long journeys.
  • a helium or open cell layer for greater comfort and better shock absorption but less breathability, which is important for long trips in warm weather.
  • closed cellular layer also has good shock-absorbing qualities at a lower cost.
  • Leg: elongated to prevent chafing of the skin of the legs against the saddle, with an elastic band that fixes them on the leg and allows you to move.
  • Waist – Most road cycling shorts have elasticated waist or shoulder straps.

MTB Cycling Shorts: Recently, there has been a clear trend among MTB shorts manufacturers to produce one or two models of shorts with diapers. So there is plenty to choose from.

Wear cycling shorts on a naked body , as the presence of underpants or thongs under them (girls, listen) can lead to chafing on the skin.

I would like to make one recommendation that will significantly extend the life of cycling shorts.

Avoid washing shorts together with items that have Velcro (eg cycling gloves). These velcro straps leave a lot of hold on the fabric of the bike shorts, and over time, holes form at the hold. Cycling shorts are best washed separately.

Once you have tried to ride a bike in cycling shorts, you will forever remain their adherent. Moreover, the times when people in a bicycle uniform were considered by those around them to be a representative of non-traditional sexual orientation are left behind.

Cycling pants. Choosing men’s and women’s padded cycling shorts

08/19/15

Inexperienced and novice cyclists are inherent in the misconceptions: they say, it is not at all necessary to ride in bike shorts to ride comfortably.

And indeed: a short walk around the city goes quite comfortably in ordinary pants or shorts, depending on the season.

However, a more or less long walk, a slightly more difficult route requires the cyclist to take maximum care of his health, so that the presence of cycling shorts will be salvation not only from chafing, but also from sweat.

The first cycling shorts had very little in common with modern models, although they were much more comfortable than ordinary trousers. Made from durable woolen fabric, these briefs were similar to the typical shorts and did little to save a cyclist from the traditional difficulties.

Over time, the models were designed more efficiently : they were sewn from several parts to ensure maximum fit, and the dense fabric was replaced with more elastic and durable.

To ensure comfort and protect the athlete’s crotch from the seams, a piece of soft suede was used, which not only strengthened the clothes, but also guaranteed the flexibility of the panties and the absence of discomfort.

The appearance of such a material as lycra radically changed the very concept of cycling shorts and cycling pants: instead of uncomfortable and hot wool, breathable, hygienic materials that are resistant to abrasion and soft in contact with the skin began to be used for shorts. The once comfortable suede pad has been replaced with a more functional diaper that guarantees an even more comfortable ride.

The modern market offers consumers three main types of bike shorts:

  • Cycling shorts with diapers. Actually, cycling shorts that are used as underwear under pants or shorts, produced in the form of swimming trunks or boxers. Such products are made of breathable material and must be supplemented with a diaper.
  • Cycling shorts Cycling shorts as part of a sports bike uniform. They can vary in length, color and cut features.
  • Loose cycling shorts.Loose padded cycling shorts. Such models seem to many to be more masculine and practical, but at the same time they are not so aerodynamic.

Cut, material and size of ideal cycling shorts

Ideal cycling shorts should be matched to three parameters of : cut, material and size. If one of the parameters does not satisfy the user, then such cycling pants have no place in the wardrobe, since the harm from illiterately selected equipment will be more than good.

  • Modern cycling shorts can be cut in one of three ways: from 4, 6 or 8 pieces of fabric.The more parts, the more comfortable the fit of the finished product to the skin will be. In addition to the cut itself, you should pay attention to the quality of the seams, since they are the ones that cause the main discomfort and problems on long trips. The most rational solution would be using seamless patterns – lightweight and as comfortable as possible.
  • The material of cycling shorts and cycling pants should also be considered as a factor. Considering price as a quality criterion is quite fair: it is the high-value cycling shorts that are made from a material that is a combination of durable and reliable spandex with the addition of artificial fibers that provide the fabric with breathability. Budget panties , as a rule, do not allow sweat to come out freely, which threatens not only uncomfortable riding conditions, but also overheating for the body.
  • When buying cycling shorts it is extremely important to pay attention to model size . Inappropriate equipment will become a problem for the athlete, and money can be considered wasted. It is not worth focusing only on the product labeling (the standard size range is used as standard – S, M, L, XL, and so on), often the sizes of manufacturers from different regions can differ quite significantly.The quality of the fit of cycling shorts can only be checked directly on the bike, since models that are comfortable in everyday life can be completely uncomfortable during riding.

Women’s cycling shorts.

In addition, a distinction should be made between women’s and men’s shorts. Differences in the anatomy of cyclists determine the differences in the cut and model range of such cycling clothing. Women’s models are distinguished by a more elegant cut, a thin waist and a shortened step. But cycling shorts for men have a wider waistline, a wide step and, as a rule, an increased leg length.

With or without padding: the choice of the beginner rider

Men’s cycling shorts with diaper.

Another important issue that torments novice cyclists is the presence of diapers in the shorts. The very name of this piece of equipment evokes sad thoughts – that is why even adults and sane, but stereotyped people often refuse it.

The purpose of the cycling camper in special clothing is to wick away perspiration and protect the delicate skin of the perineum from abrasions.

The suede diaper has been replaced by multi-layer diapers, which consist of a fleece filling that provides the most comfortable fit, an antibacterial layer and additional pads with an absorbent effect in the front and side parts. Manufacturers are constantly in search of the most anatomical shapes, selection of materials and impregnations, so the selection of the ideal diaper model depends on personal physiology and sensations.

Pro Tips: How to Choose the Perfect Cycling Shorts & Pants

  • The decisive factor when choosing a cycling shorts should not be the price or the prestige of the brand, but the ideal match of the model to a particular athlete.
  • An expensive model will last longer, but you should only buy a pair of shorts for $ 100 if you cycle more than once a week.
  • Choose the right model very carefully. Trying on and running in panties is a mandatory stage of the purchase, because even expensive models can be inconvenient.
  • Models with or without straps: this age-old question for cyclists must be decided on a case-by-case basis. For some it is more convenient to tighten the belt, while others prefer additional support on the body.
  • The choice of cycling shorts should also be based on the characteristics of the body: for some, the lightness and ability of the fabric to wick away sweat are important, while for others, additional support from a denser fabric is important.

Women’s cycling shorts: 6 tips for a comfortable ride

Often, women who are just starting to wear cycling shorts are interested in which models should be chosen: with or without a diaper? The following tips will help you feel comfortable in cycling shorts during and after your trip and keep your status as a “dummy” away from others.

First you need to figure out why you need shorts with a lining (diaper). Cycling clothing is made up of multiple sections made of elastic synthetic material that allows you to pedal freely.

Flat seams prevent friction and the appearance of marks on the skin, fixing tapes fit snugly around the hips and prevent clothing from slipping, and technical fabric absorbs moisture. Cycling shorts also support muscles through their compressive properties.

Council

A characteristic feature of this equipment is the presence of a suede pad in the groin area, which prevents friction and the growth of bacteria, and also serves as a “pillow” for the cyclist.

For those who plan to spend a lot of time in the saddle, cycling shorts with a diaper are a worthy contribution to their own comfort. Now for some tips:

Do not wear underwear

The presence of clothing underneath shorts with a diaper can cause discomfort while riding.When seams or folds in the fabric rub against the skin, the laundry can injure the skin, resulting in abrasions and soreness. Plus, everyone will recognize you as a newbie when they see the stripes of your underwear showing through from under your shorts.

Use a barrier cream

Many cyclists use special diaper creams to help minimize friction and rough skin.

It is recommended to apply a generous amount of cream to the crotch area and areas just below before traveling, and also to apply a small amount of it to the lining of shorts.

Bicycle shops offer products from different manufacturers. You may need to experiment before you find the most suitable remedy.

Move in the saddle

Changing position from time to time will help improve circulation. Remember to move back and forth when riding, or raise yourself slightly to relieve stress from prolonged sitting in the saddle.

Change clothes immediately

Once you cross the finish line, remove your cycling shorts as quickly as possible.The warmth and moisture under your clothing will trigger the growth of bacteria, which can lead to the development of infectious diseases. If it is not possible to change immediately, treat the body with a damp cloth.

Let your skin rest

In order to further circulate air and blood in the groin, some cyclists wear wide shorts (or skirts) for some time after riding. However, they do not use underwear.

Erase

Cycling shorts should be washed after every ride.If you are unable to frequently clean your sportswear, we recommend purchasing another set.

Compliance with these recommendations will maintain a feeling of comfort throughout the trip. Follow these tips and you’ll look great on and off the bike.

Many skilled cyclists looking to cycle more deeply are looking to buy cycling equipment for more effective training.In summer, it is most pleasant to ride in shorts or, as they are also called, in cycling shorts. What specific cycling shorts are and how to choose them?

Shorts are, firstly, male and female. Women’s shorts are more fitted due to the specifics of female figures. Men are more “square”. In addition, the difference is that girls tend to prefer smaller trousers than men.

If you do not have a pronounced female or male body type, there is no difference what kind of panties to take.

Cycling shorts are available in tight and non-tight. The latter flutter in the wind, impairing the aerodynamic characteristics of clothing.

What are they for?

If you only leave home to ride in the yard or in the park, then there is no need to take special equipment. But if you are going to cover huge distances, then cycling shorts are what you need.

Bike pants functions:

  • Cycling shorts are made from materials that will not irritate the skin when rubbed.You will feel comfortable wearing them after many hours of driving.
  • Stretch fabric fits the muscles well for improved aerodynamics.
  • Pampers wick away sweat and create a soft padding between the saddle and the rider’s buttocks, protecting against chafing.

Building

Cycling Shorts and Pants are available with or without padding. We’ll talk about the advantages of the former a little later. Cycling shorts without a diaper are cheaper than with one.

Types of cuts

Cycling shorts are made from 4 pieces of fabric, 6 or 8.The more parts are used when sewing, the more ergonomic the cyclist will bend his legs. More pieces of fabric fit the leg tighter in any position.

More expensive models are sewn, in most cases, from eight parts.

When trying on cycling shorts, make sure that when you bend your leg, they do not stretch too much. Shorts should not squeeze anything and cause you inconvenience.

Material

Panties are made only of elastic materials.Much more often they are made of spandex, which stretches well and resists wear and tear. As we know, the skin needs to breathe, especially when exercising.

Note

Spandex does not provide such an opportunity, and it does not take away sweat well, therefore other fibers are added to it, contributing to good moisture removal.

There is only one rule to remember: choose shorts that are closest to cotton. These shorts are winning in all respects.

Cycling shorts with protection
Cuffs

Panties always have silicone stripes on the edge of the leg. This is what sets cycling equipment apart from everyone. These stripes keep the garment in one position and prevent the pant leg from pulling up.

Waist Equipment for the cyclist

An elastic band at the waist holds the cycling shorts on top so that they do not fall or roll. For more comfort, many of them also have a strap that can be tightened to the width of your waist.

Some people are uncomfortable in such shorts, they will be able to press too hard on the belly.If you are one of those people, then for you there is an answer: it is possible to purchase shorts with straps. They will definitely not subside and will not cause you any inconvenience.

How to choose a diaper? Build

Pampers have several parts.

  • One piece is folded from fleece, which contributes to a better fit of the diaper pants to the skin.
  • The second contains a bactericidal impregnation. Bacteria adore sweat and heat, and therefore they actively multiply in that place.We need to stop this business by means of special substances.
  • Lining with excellent sweat absorption.
  • From time to time, the diaper also consists of a side pad, which also removes sweat and moisture, less often it also has a bactericidal effect.

There are 7 types of diapers:

The type of diaper is chosen by each person independently, depending on gender, riding style and personal zest of the body.

Any of these diapers is possible very narrow or, on the contrary, thick.

Cycling shorts care

Cycling briefs should be washed daily as they must be worn without the daily panties. The bactericidal coating of the diaper is necessary for tissue preservation, not for human health. Bacteria that are harmful to the rider accumulate on the underpants.

Better to have a couple of pairs of cycling shorts to change every ride.

Be sure to check the label and adhere to all washing conditions.

Cycling shorts with thick women’s diaper

Pay attention:

  • Take your panties only when you are convinced that they do not press anywhere and perfectly fit the body.
  • More expensive cycling shorts are not always the best. In addition, it is possible to find a quality model from budget models.
  • The type of diaper that suits you can only be selected by trial. You may feel comfortable when trying on, but not very comfortable in the saddle.
  • If you do not have enough developed abdominal muscles, it is better to purchase shorts with shoulder straps.
  • Decide for yourself whether it is more comfortable for you to wear a light and excellent sweat-wicking fabric or a heavy, but perfectly supportive fabric
  • The length of the shorts is possible from very small (7 cm) to long (28 cm). Try on all types and decide which one is more ergonomic for you.

You will definitely see the difference between riding in plain clothes and cycling shorts.If you ride every day, then they will be very useful for you. Be sure to try on panties before purchasing, and in the position in which you are sitting on the saddle!

There shouldn’t be any discomfort, otherwise in the future your bike ride will turn into not a very pleasant pastime.

The most popular models of men’s briefs-shorts

What all men can do

Blog of a modern man

health, sports, auto, fashion

The fact that not only comfort, but also a man’s sexual health depends on the quality and shape of underpants, is known to everyone today.

Therefore, it is so important from the huge variety of models of underpants offered to the male population to choose those that are comfortable and comfortable, the most suitable for your lifestyle.

The most common model is men’s underpants.

Their popularity is due to the fact that they can be used in a wide variety of situations:

  • For everyday wear;
  • For sports activities;
  • For the beach;
  • Underwear for very tight, tight-fitting trousers, with a low waist and other specific cut.
  • Originally appearing in support of boxers’ shorts, acting in the ring, boxers, as they began to be called, are now very diverse in terms of execution.

    They can be elongated, medium length, shortened to a minimum, sporty design. The material that is used for their manufacture is mainly natural (cotton, silk, wool), but modern approaches to the creation of artificial materials make it possible to achieve a level of quality that can even surpass natural material in terms of performance.

    Models

    The first to appear were loose panties, imitating the so-called “family panties”. “Boxers” are shorts made of soft fabric with a wide elastic band.

    Another version of “boxers” – “hips” are distinguished by a low waist and short pants. Their shape provides many opportunities for experimenting with the texture of the fabric, which is especially interesting for young people. Despite the fact that they lighten the body, there is no discomfort during wearing due to the very soft fabric.

    Important

    Models differ in the depth of the cutout and different formats of side fragments, which can be midi, micro or mini. Slip-like tanga model has a wide elastic band instead of a side part, which can be in the form of a lacing or a strip.

    For especially advanced fashion designers offer thong shorts, in which the front part is similar to “boxers”, and the back is a very narrow strip. A separate category is represented by sports shorts underpants.

    Men’s sports shorts briefs

    The difference between shorts-briefs for sports activities and ordinary toilet articles intended for everyday wear is that they must not only provide comfort, but also fulfill hygienic goals to the maximum extent, and look aesthetically pleasing.

    For this purpose, they can be provided with special internal inserts, overlays, special codpiece shapes that protect the male genital organ from possible damage.

    You can distinguish sports underpants by the following features:

  • The material used for the manufacture of briefs, which for cycling briefs will be lycra, and for beach ones – from quick-drying fabrics, or other synthetic materials;
  • The presence of inner “panties” to prevent direct contact of the genitals with elastic tissue;
  • Possibility to adjust the volume of sports shorts by means of drawstrings.
  • Sports shorts must be made only of high quality materials that should not hinder movement when playing sports.

    To avoid crotch injuries, suede strips were previously sewn into cycling briefs. Currently, instead of suede, synthetic materials are used, which are hypoallergenic, effectively removing excess heat and moisture, as well as being more resistant to evaporation and soft.

    Antibacterial impregnation of such a lining, which is popularly called “diaper”, protects delicate skin from the development of infectious processes.For those who are involved in athletics, fitness, playing sports, the best option would be to use compression shorts made from the optimal combination of polyamide and elastane.

    Their functional features are:

  • No squeezing of blood vessels, ensuring the normal flow of all necessary nutrients into the tissues of the body;
  • Free access of air, providing the skin with breathing;
  • Acceleration of the body’s recovery after overload, reduction of trauma;
  • Improved coordination of movements.
  • Seamless briefs

    For athletic men in public affairs, seamless underpants are an excellent choice.

    Manufactured using a unique technology, made of soft microfiber, these seamless briefs are very practical and functional. The innovative underwear fits the body delightfully, does not press anywhere, is very comfortable and warm.

    It is not visible under clothes and for a long time the linen retains its original beautiful appearance.

    How to avoid bicycling-induced chafing, irritation and rash under shorts

    There are a few things for cyclists that can quickly ruin their ride pleasure. One of them is the appearance of a rash or irritation in the sensitive areas of your body under your shorts.

    Not only does this problem cause pain when cycling, but it is also possible that the cyclist will have to give up riding altogether for a few days.

    Let’s take a look at how you can avoid this painful friction and rash that cyclists experience.

    1. Wear suitable quality shorts.

    The most important factor in preventing chafing is your shorts. They are in constant and direct contact with your skin. If you are riding in “real” cycling shorts with special fabric, then it is suggested that you should not wear underwear. If the shorts are ordinary, then, most likely, you will have problems because of them.

    Buy the best cycling shorts you can afford. These shorts have better fabric, and the seams will be stitched and positioned to minimize friction and irritation. You will be able to drive longer and more relaxed. Make sure your cycling shorts are the right size for you – excess material is a source of extra moisture and friction.

    2. Make sure the saddle fits well.

    Cyclists often choose saddles for a more comfortable ride.They are generally much wider and much softer, sometimes gel-filled, and may be suitable for some cyclists. However, in practice, narrow saddles are more suitable for cycling.

    For many cyclists, the wider seat rubs against the inner thighs and impedes the natural movement of the pedals. The larger the saddle area, the more it is a source of additional moisture and, as a result, even more chafing and irritation.

    3.Change your shorts often.

    If you will be riding for several days in a row, have cycling shorts for replacement and washing to avoid irritation problems. After your trip, take off your shorts as soon as possible and wash yourself. It helps get rid of bacteria that can cause skin irritation, rashes, and chafing.

    After cleaning your body, wash your cycling shorts too. Use a pH-level detergent and / or stain remover made specifically for high-tech fabrics.

    Council

    In addition, the use of different shorts for shorts, which differ in cut from each other, will significantly reduce the places where the seams from the shorts rub against the body.

    4. Special women’s strategies.

    Women are advised to use special shavers for the intimate bikini area to avoid irritation in this sensitive area. Also note that you should shave in the direction of hair growth to avoid cuts.

    Further, to reduce moisture, this root cause of irritation, when it comes to friction and discomfort in this area, you need to take special nutritional supplements or regularly eat yogurt. This will help clear up yeast infections.

    Tampons also help reduce moisture if you have had sex or ovulation recently. After your trip, try to wear tennis skirts or other skirts with wide brims and padded underpants.

    If you do not need panties, then do not wear them at all to give your body a rest from the irritation caused by the stitches.

    5. Use prophylactic lotions and creams.

    Many cyclists have found that creams and lotions can help prevent these problems. You may need to experiment to find which lotion works best for you.

    One option is to place a thin layer of petroleum jelly directly on the most delicate areas before riding to help reduce friction in that area with shorts or a bike seat.

    Vaseline based creams are also good.

    After your trip, you can try zinc diaper rash ointments such as Desitin to help keep your skin dry and clean and quickly heal any irritated areas that may be causing you the most problems.

    6. Change your driving position.

    Note

    This is a last resort recommendation. If you cannot apply the recommendations before this, then the best thing you can do is change your riding position.

    You can temporarily pedal or get off the bike and walk, or you can move back and forth on the saddle to find the position in which you are most comfortable. You can also try shifting your weight from one glute to the other if that helps.

    This is almost the only way to relieve discomfort if you are in the middle of a trip. Apply this tip until you reach the end point. Then, when you get there, use the tips above to make sure you don’t need that tip again.
