AN IMPORTANT PART OF BASIC CYCLING EQUIPMENT
Due to the close-fitting and aerodynamic cut, the bib shorts are particularly appealing to road cyclists. The straps ensure that the shorts do not slip. The bib shorts have an extended back section that effectively protects this sensitive part of the body from draughts. Cycling shorts with straps can be excellently combined with other items of clothing. Usually, cyclists wear a long-sleeved or short-sleeved jersey over the shorts. You can also extend a pair of bib shorts with leg warmers to create a flexible outfit for changeable weather.
WHAT BIB SHORTS OFFER YOU IN SUMMER
We recommend bib shorts especially for the warmer season. These are short bib shorts made of a particularly light, supple and thin fabric. The bib shorts are not lined and, depending on the model, have mesh inserts. This also ensures an airy feeling on your skin. A short-sleeved jersey fits very well over the bib shorts. Men can also leave the jersey off when it's hot. Many bib shorts have a highly compressive structure. This has a positive effect on your muscles. The compression improves the blood flow to your legs and promotes the transport of oxygen to the muscle cells. This significantly improves your performance and helps you recover more quickly after intensive training sessions.
FOR COOL WEATHER: LONG BIB SHORTS FOR MEN AND WOMEN
Bicycle shorts with straps are available in a long version for winter and the transitional period. The thermal models with brushed insides are particularly warm. Some bib shorts have special thermo mesh inserts so that the air circulates in the shorts despite the good insulation. In really uncomfortable weather with snow, wind or rain, windstopper bib shorts offer enormous advantages. These trousers are often made of a softshell material and have windproof and water-repellent properties.
Many bib shorts have special equipment for better functionality. Reflective strips or details are attached to many models so that other people can see you more quickly in the dark and in fog. Flat seams reduce friction when cycling and prevent painful pressure points. Seat pads are an obligatory feature. Some models are equipped with antibacterial features. Stretch inserts for more elasticity and abrasion-resistant trimmings are among the possible extras in bib shorts for cycling. Closable pockets increase the practical benefits. Ideal for on the go are patented zip systems that increase comfort when going to the toilet and make this much easier, especially for women.
ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF CYCLING SHORTS WITH STRAPS
There are cyclists who would prefer not to take off their bib shorts because they are so comfortable. Then again, there are those athletes who prefer strapless shorts because they find them too cumbersome to put on and take off. Ultimately, it comes down to personal taste, so you'll have to find out for yourself which model you like best.
