Cycling Apparel.

Like a number of other sports cycling is one such activity which is equipment-centric. If you are considering serious mountain biking or participating in marathons a lot of small but significant aspects come into play to enhance your cycling ability. One such requirement is cycling apparel, the main purpose of this is comfort, such as padding in the right places, tight fitting and flexible material. Cycling apparel is designed keeping in mind factor like reducing air resistance while riding and allowing free movement to produce maximum efficiency.

When we talk about cycling apparel the two main things which come to mind are cycling shorts and cycling jerseys.

Cycling shorts – Initially you might find these cycling shorts a little uncomfortable but once you get used to them you’ll find that you cannot do without them. They are made with padding such that you do not feel sore even after sitting on your bike for long stretches.

This is possible because the material of the shorts is extremely flexible.  Btwin has many variations of cycling shorts which you can choose from, shop for these shorts here.

Cycling jerseys – Once you start using a bike jersey while cycling you’ll immediately notice how much better it is in comparison to any other regular t-shirt you might wear. The first advantage is that most biking jerseys have a front zipper, this comes in handy when you need to adjust ventilation needs with changing temperatures. Like cycling shorts the material is flexible and fitting so it does not flap with the wind, and goes along with the motion of your body. Cycling jerseys are designed to complement the hunched position that you maintain while cycling. To shop for cycling jerseys click here.
