Optimal bike clothing for men & women
1st layer of road cycling clothing: jerseys
Striking colours or a rather discreet design? When deciding on a road cycling jersey, that’s as much a matter of taste as the length. However, close-fitting, lightweight and breathable are features that all models should have. If it’s cooler or you get cold easily, you can also wear a singlet underneath as a base layer.
Road cycling shorts: (bib) shorts
A body-hugging design, flat seams, and elastic leg cuffs: That’s what high-quality road cycling shorts should look like. You can choose between models with a regular waistband and the popular bib shorts with comfortable straps. Convenient details such as pockets for small everyday items are nice to have as well.
How long your road cycling trousers should be is another decision to make when buying a new pair. In summer, of course, shorts are particularly popular. In winter, the long version protects the legs from the cold.
Tip: Like mountain bikers, road cyclists can opt for additional arm warmers or leg warmers.
