When it comes to bicycle shorts, you need a fit that supports your ride.
Traditional cycling shorts are designed for a body-hugging fit that promotes aerodynamics on your bike. Elastic or silicone grippers on the interior of your shorts help keep the garment in place as you peddle. Flatlock seams minimize bunching and chafing, so you can move fluidly as you round another lap.
Biking bibs are a must for competitive cyclers. Your bibs are made of form-fitting shorts held up by integral suspenders. A stretchable fit supports your body as you move. A second-skin fit promotes speed and natural movement.
Some biking shorts are inspired by street wear, like baggy and relaxed-fitting cycling shorts. These shorts fit like traditional hiking shorts, but feature a biking liner for superior comfort during long hours on the course. Quick-drying, stretchable fabric keeps you comfortable on the go. Some shorts feature a two-in-one design, allowing you to separate the liner from the outer short.
The right pair of biking shorts delivers stretch without restriction.
Form-fitting cycling shorts should always be constructed with four-way stretch, so you can move freely. Look for biking shorts and bibs with a built-in ventilation system for strategic breathability.
Traditional biking shorts are designed to conform to the shape of your body. Many are constructed with an anatomical design, featuring five to ten panels that wrap around your waist and legs for a natural feeling fit. A brushed interior feels comfortable against your skin. Biking shorts designed with moisture-wicking technology lift sweat from your skin, keeping dry in the saddle.
