WHEN IT GETS TOO FRESH AROUND THE CALVES
Training in cold weather requires appropriate clothing. This includes trousers that protect your legs from top to bottom. In long cycling shorts you can do your sport in low temperatures without any problems. You are perfectly insulated so that your body hardly loses any heat. At the same time, moisture transport and air exchange are unhindered. A warm and dry feeling on your skin is the result of functional textiles that have excellent moisture and heat management. Another advantage is the enormous wearing comfort. You can stretch out in all directions in the elastic material without compromising your freedom of movement.
THE RIGHT CYCLING SHORTS FOR RACERS
Road athletes and racers prefer long trousers that allow for maximum acceleration. An aerodynamic design that fits close to the body is definitely advantageous. The long trousers are cut close to the body and are elastic. They feel like a second skin. Silicone coatings and a flat waistband ensure a perfect fit and excellent support. Comfortable seat pads round off the features. If you are on the road a lot, you naturally need to be seen immediately in all weathers and at all times of the day and night. For this reason, many of the long cycling trousers are equipped with reflective applications.
WHAT MOUNTAIN BIKERS WEAR
Mountain bikers like it casual. Many recreational athletes also prefer long trousers that don't stick to the leg but leave a little air between the skin and the textiles. Bike trousers are not skin-tight, but they are still elastic. There is an elasticated waistband, which is ideally individually adjustable. Typically, there are pre-shaped knee areas and a zip in the lower part of the leg to make it easier to put on and take off. These long cycling trousers are also equipped with seat reinforcement and abrasion protection. They are available both as wind stoppers and as rain overtrousers. You can wear the waterproof and windproof trousers directly on the skin or pull them over a tight. The overtrousers are feather-light, easily compressible and therefore ideal as a useful accessory for a sudden change in weather.
THE ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF LONG CYCLING TROUSERS
In cool weather, you'll get cold calves without a pair of long trousers on your bike. That's why it's best to buy several pairs of cycling shorts with long legs for winter and cold days. Disadvantages only arise in comparison with the alternatives. For example, you can extend shorts with leg warmers for a certain period of time. Long trousers with straps also offer more comfort and a more secure fit, but are more difficult to put on and take off.
