First of all, let's talk about the necessity of cycling clothes:
Whether it is necessary to buy a set of cycling clothing, the editor thinks it is still very necessary, cycling pants are more important than cycling tops, of course, I still recommend you to buy a complete set of cycling clothing. In addition: remind you again: you don't need to wear underwear when wearing cycling pants, otherwise the breathable effect will be greatly reduced.
Why is it necessary? The reason is very simple. It can make you ride better, get less wind resistance, or better exhaust sweating effect. In the most popular words, it looks cool enough. From the perspective of demand This is very necessary, from the player's point of view, it is more professional.
Generally speaking, cycling clothing is close-fitting, which can effectively avoid the situation of going for a ride. I believe you and I have the experience of wearing loose sportswear and riding a bicycle, and the back is almost blown into a balloon by the wind. So we say, can effectively reduce wind resistance.
Fabric for cycling clothing. Generally, they are made of various breathable materials introduced by major companies, so the sweat generated during riding can be quickly excreted from the body. This is something that pure cotton clothes cannot achieve.
Premise Cycling apparel tends to be more professionally designed.
Its outstanding performance is that the sleeves are generally longer than clothes of the same size (if it is a long-sleeved cycling jersey, short sleeves naturally do not have this design), this is mainly due to the fact that the riding posture is when the arms are extended to the longest Therefore, some long-sleeved cycling jerseys often have elongated sleeves, which can ensure that the wrists and other parts can still be covered when riding a bicycle.
Secondly, the back flap is obviously longer than the front flap, and it is much longer. This is also considering that the posture of the front servant of the bike is different from the upright posture. General clothes also have this design, but this design is especially obvious on cycling clothing. and highlight.
Friendly reminder: When going out for cycling, you must pay attention to the heat preservation of the waist. Especially when the temperature is relatively low, long-term exposure to wind and low temperature bare waist is very easy to cause back pain and other problems. Thirdly, there are generally some small pockets on the back or side. The most common is the design of three pockets on the back, which can put some small things, such as chocolates, so that energy can be replenished at any time.
Once again, a long zipper is opened on the chest of the cycling jersey for ventilation. Generally speaking, the longer the men's zipper, the better it can breathe better. The women's design is more conservative to avoid exposure (some women's cycling clothes with very good designs even have breasts inside the cycling clothes. The design of the bracket saves all kinds of troubles caused by wearing a BRA, and makes breathing smoother.
So, is there any substitute? Of course you can, but the effect is only average. A polyester vest for outdoor sports and a more close-fitting windbreaker are also possible. Of course, cycling clothes are not expensive, and it is very worthwhile to buy a set.
As for short-sleeves and long-sleeves, you can choose this way: choose long-sleeves when the temperature is low and the temperature difference is small; choose a combination of short-sleeved sleeves when the temperature is high and the temperature difference is large.
Then there are the cycling pants. Naturally, long-distance cycling is not as comfortable as sitting on the sofa. Butts are bound to suffer. What's more, being forcibly fixed on such a small cushion, the thighs have to suffer from the pain of friction on both sides of the cushion. Therefore, cycling pants are much more important than cycling tops.
The main function lies in the design of the pads, and the purpose is still the ventilation on the top (the buttocks and other parts are indeed big sweaters). The main purpose is to cushion the vibration from the ground transmitted through the cushion.
What I need to remind you is: with the increase of the number of uses, the pads will become thinner and gradually lose their effect. Therefore, cycling pants are still consumables. Some riding pants have a thicker cushion, which will provide better comfort, but the air permeability will be affected.
In addition, some cycling pants are unisex, and some are more professional and user-friendly in design, strictly distinguishing between men and women, and need to be purchased in a targeted manner. Otherwise, if men wear women's pants, they will suffer a little bit.
What I need to remind you is: pay attention to how the trousers of cycling pants are designed. Generally, trousers are tight. If the design of the trousers is too tight, it will be hooped on the thigh, which must be very uncomfortable. Therefore, when shopping on the spot, please pay attention to men with thicker legs.
