What are the different types of women's cycling bottoms?
No matter the type of cycling you prefer, we certainly have the right cycling bottoms for you. Here is our selection of women's cycling bottoms available in our stores:
Which type of cycling bottoms to choose and for which discipline?
On one hand, non-bib cycling shorts are more affordable and easy to use, perfect for bathroom breaks. They are generally suitable for recreational cyclists. On the other hand, bib shorts, also known as bibs, have an elastic waistband and suspenders to relieve pressure on the abdomen while pedaling. The suspenders also provide better blood circulation and oxygenation. Bib shorts often feature a stable and comfortable chamois to reduce the risk of irritation and discomfort on the saddle.
Long cycling tights or bib tights are perfect for keeping you warm in colder conditions. We have a wide selection of bib tight models, including bib tights with suspenders, thermal long tights, and durable mountain bike pants. They are typically made of insulating, breathable, and stretchable fabrics to enhance your cycling outings. Suspenders on long tights are preferred by many cyclists, but it ultimately remains a personal choice.
Are you passionate about mountain biking? It's time to equip yourself with proper clothing for this discipline. Whether you prefer cross-country, trail, enduro, downhill, or fat biking, we undoubtedly have the pieces you need. The majority of mountain bikers prefer mountain bike shorts made of breathable, durable, and quick-drying fabric. Opt for a mountain bike baggy shorts with a looser fit for better comfort and excellent freedom of movement.
How to choose the right base layer?
The function of a base layer is to wick away moisture and sweat to keep you as dry and warm as possible. To avoid getting too hot or too cold, it's important to choose the appropriate combination for your type of activity. To find the one that meets your needs, consider the activity intensity, outdoor conditions, and your sensitivity to cold. Here are some recommendations:
For low-intensity activities, we recommend a warmer base layer. The warmest combinations are generally made of merino wool (weight between 250 and 320 grams). Blends of synthetic fibers and merino wool are ideal for those who want equally high-performance pieces at a lower cost. Layering intermediate and outer layers is recommended to keep your body warmer for longer.
For high-intensity activities, choose a base layer that wicks moisture and dries quickly to prevent freezing. Opt for a close-fitting cut for better breathability during physical exertion. Merino wool layers have thermoregulatory characteristics that adapt to all weather conditions. Additionally, they feature antimicrobial and anti-odor properties for highly active individuals. A weight between 120 to 150 grams is recommended for merino wool base layers. However, synthetic base layers are a good alternative for those who cannot wear wool. Synthetic fabrics also offer breathable and warm features.
