What are the different types of women's cycling tops?
No matter what discipline you're involved in, having the right equipment is essential. Whether it's for road cycling, mountain biking, or competitive cycling, we definitely have the cycling tops that will meet your needs. Here is our selection of women's cycling tops:
Which type of cycling top should you choose for each discipline?
Short-sleeve and sleeveless cycling jerseys:
Generally, short-sleeve and sleeveless cycling jerseys are perfect for summer bike rides. The fabrics are often lighter and more breathable to keep you dry during intense training sessions. For road cycling, we recommend a form-fitting short-sleeve jersey for better aerodynamics. For mountain biking, we suggest a looser-fitting short-sleeve cycling jersey for excellent freedom of movement.
Long-sleeve cycling jerseys:
Long-sleeve cycling jerseys offer technical insulation and breathability features to prevent your body from overheating while cycling. Some are made of synthetic fabrics (polyester), while others are made of natural fabrics (merino wool). The majority of long-sleeve cycling jerseys offer important details to ensure your safety and comfort. Many are also designed with unique features such as SPF protection or water resistance. Similar to short-sleeve cycling jerseys, we recommend a form-fitting jersey for road cycling and a looser-fitting jersey for mountain biking.
Cycling jackets and vests:
Don't be afraid of rain and snow with our selection of cycling jackets and vests. They keep you warm and dry, even in extreme seasonal conditions. Whether you're looking for a thermal jacket, a sleeveless vest, a windbreaker, or even a waterproof jacket, you'll certainly find your next favorite piece. Our cycling jackets and vests have important features such as Gore-Tex membranes that provide full protection against water and wind while allowing heat to escape, reflective details for your safety, and waterproof zippers to keep you dry in the rain.
How to choose the right cycling 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, you need to determine the intensity of the activity, the 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 usually made of merino wool (weight between 250 and 320). Blends of synthetic fibers and merino wool are ideal for those who want equally high-performance gear at a lower cost. Layering intermediate and outer layers is recommended to keep your body warmer for longer.
For high-intensity activities, you should choose a base layer that wicks away moisture and dries quickly to prevent you from getting chilled. Opt for a snug fit for better breathability during physical exertion. Merino wool layers have thermoregulating properties that adapt to all weather conditions. Additionally, they have antimicrobial and anti-odor properties for highly active individuals. We recommend a weight between 120 and 150 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.
We also have a selection of casual tops for women. You can proudly wear your favorite cycling brands at home or even at work. You'll find t-shirts, hoodies, casual shirts, and much more!
