Tips about How to Select High-Quality Cycling Jerseys
For critical cyclists, choosing a good-quality cycling cloth is not a simple thing. They need to considerate a lot of elements such as the permeability, sweat absorption and comfort. So picking a good cycling cloth for you can be a big deal. Let’s just see how to pick a good- quality cycling cloth.
Compared to men’s clothes, women’s are more colorful and stylish. Some women prefer to wear bibs (shorts with built in suspenders which are the norm in the competitive peloton), as the suspender option eliminates tightness around the waist. The down side to bibs is they make bathroom breaks more of a procedure since the jersey must be removed each time. If opting for bibs, definitely match with a full-zipper jersey instead of the over-the-head option. Now you’re styling’!
As for the best chamois, more padding does not necessarily equal greater comfort. Most of the newer mid-to-high end designs are quite low profile and very comfortable. Your overall comfort will be achieved by pairing the right combination of chamois, saddle and bike position to suit you. Also — and ladies, this is very important — cycling shorts are meant to be worn without underwear; more layers and seams will detract from your comfort and endanger you to saddle sores.
The cycling environment can greatly influent the choice of cycling jerseys, too. As for your jersey, if most of your riding will be done in very warm temperatures, opt for a light-fabric, short-sleeved option. Even light jerseys can be suitable for mild temps if you add a pair of arm warmers, undershirt and vest. Long-sleeved jerseys are great for cool climates and winter rides.
There are still different types of cycling clothes. Jerseys are typically come in racer fit, semi-fitted and relaxed fit. They are meant to be worn relatively snug, come in partial or full-zip, and women’s jerseys have either two or three pockets across the low back. My personal preference is a full-zip, three-pocket jersey; it’s easier to take on and off and allows the contents of my pockets to be better balanced.
