New to cycling apparel?
If you want an overview of the specifics of cycling apparel and the utility they provide, follow that link to a brief overview with images that provide the most popular features that are built into most of today's cycling apparel. This will give you the basic details that make cycling apparel a worthwhile investment. Not all cycling apparel is spandex and skin tights. There are plenty of choices that are loose fitting and normal looking. Commuter clothing for example is very high end performance gear yet appears to be regular daily clothing.
You can also get the details on bike jerseys by reading about the wicking fabrics that are used and the features that make them so popular with cyclists. We have been selling cycling apparel for over 30 years. Some aspects of the cycling apparel business never change. Namely, your desire to ride in comfort. We strive to create cyclewear that is invisible, which means that once you put it on, you never have to think about it again. Good cycling clothing fits, stretches with movement, resists abrasion and pads the ischial bones on the bicycle saddle.
Everyone has an opinion on the best chamois pads....
* While there are lots of variables to consider when selecting cycling apparel, one factor that is a key consideration is the chamois padding that is sewn into the saddle area of padded bike shorts. Some of us think it is all about the chamois pad when you choose a pair of shorts. There are many opinions on what shape is best, and the thickness of the foam or gel is another consideration.
* The pads are also constructed in one seamless piece which are molded vs the baseball stitch or sewn pads that have great fit from the seams which enable the pad to snug up into the seat area.
* Given all the types of bicycle riders and all of the personal preferences within each of these cycling domains, it is no wonder we have to spend a lot of time looking into our options to understand the choices available to us as cyclists.
* As the chamois pads evolve into a high end science, the basic idea of a soft ride will never go out of style. If you want to get into the details of the chamois pad, see this page on: How to Get Comfortable Cycling with Chamois Padded Bike Shorts.
* We also sell replacement foam chamois pads that you can use to upgrade or repair your older bike shorts.
