Men’s cycling shorts for best comfort and performance

Men’s cycling shorts are probably the most important and the first piece of cycling clothing that comes to mind. And for a good reason. The biggest contact point between the rider and the bicycle is made over the bike saddle and the shorts. So, the cycling shorts directly impact the comfort of the cyclist and indirectly their whole performance. The most important part of any cycling short is the chamois or seat pad.  The seat pad is basically the part that is different in women’s and men’s cycling shorts. Women have anatomically wider seat bones, therefore, women’s cycling shorts will have wider seat pads. Cycling shorts are designed and constructed from materials that are skin-friendly, thin and flexible to move with the body. Like with all the other cycling clothing, moisture wicking and fast drying quality is an imperative. Seams are brought down to a bare minimum and they are flatlock so that they don’t cause any pressure points nor chafing. Cycling shorts have deeper rear side so that they wouldn’t be falling off when you’re stretched out on your bike. They come in two basic versions:
  • Tight fitting cycling shorts - shorts and bib shorts. They come with straps attached which keep the shorts in proper place no matter what type of cycling you do. Straps are usually stretchy enough so that bathroom visits are made simple, without taking the straps off. They are cut even deeper in the back than the cycling shorts so they take great care of your lower back. Furthermore, the fact that they actually don’t have any waistband contributes to enhanced comfort. This type of cycling shorts is mostly about aerodynamics and that is why they are preferred by road bike cyclists and racers. That doesn’t exclude anyone else, of course, since they truly are  quintessential cycling garment.
  • Loose fitting cycling shorts – look like any other men’s shorts from the outside, but they come with integrated undershorts and chamois or seat pad. They come with all the great traits that tight fitting cycling shorts offer plus the “looking cool” factor. By rule they are favorites of mountain bike cyclists since aerodynamics are not of the most importance, but some extra pockets are. Also, the outer shell can be made of materials that are more durable and resistant to tears from the trail riding.
There are some more usual extras added depending on type of cycling shorts like: reflectors for better visibility, silicone leg grippers that create snug fit at thigh without restricting movement, pockets…
