Cycling Shorts are worn without underwear?To choose a bike short for your personal biking style, you first need to know your options. Most cycle shorts have a foam pad sewn into the bicycle seat area. The padding in the shorts range from thick to thin. The thickest pads act as shock absorbers with different types of gel or foam that is formed into shape using an engineered designed based on cycling motion. The padding also reduces abrasion and cushions the seat area.
Women's Bike Shorts: Thinner - Anti-Chafe Pads :Women's bike shorts that have a thin pad are more multi-sport oriented and ideal for experienced riders who are comfortable on their saddle. The size and density of a thin pad make it ideal to eliminate chafe and abrasion between the legs. The pad is large enough to surround the entire saddle area without seams coming in contact with the saddle.
Fit: Women's bicycle shorts typically have a narrower waist circumference and a larger hip measure. The thighs on a women's shorts often have a thicker measure than men's. The Women's shorts have a generously cut leg gripper as women often carry more weight on the hips and legs. A few shorts are available in special cuts for fit and slim or plus size or tall cuts. The key component for fit is comfort. The shorts should fit snug so the pad is tight against the skin.
Care: We recommend you machine wash your bike shorts and then let them air dry. Avoiding dryers prolongs the life of the rubber Lycra spandex which is knitted into the short. The Spandex is a rubber which is affected by heat. Longer life can be had by air drying your spandex shorts. Machine washing is important because it removes the sweat that can form in the crotch area. Machine washing removes sweat.
