Cycling is a form of exercise that involves the whole body and is practiced on a bicycle on the road or in the mountains.
Cycling shoes and cycling helmets are the essential equipment for cycling, the former for better power transmission when pedalling and the latter to ensure the cyclist's safety. But it is also advisable to use a jersey, shorts and specific socks for this sport, as well as lightweight cycling goggles.
Cycling jerseys must offer excellent breathability and have a perfect fit for the practice of cycling. Cycling jerseys are usually made of polyester with flatlock seams and can have mesh or mesh inserts in the armpits.
Cycling jerseys usually have 3 back pockets, an elastic silicone band at the bottom hem and a zip to close. Some cycling jerseys incorporate a water-resistant treatment in the lower part that wicks moisture from perspiration away, allowing it to dry and prevent the cyclist from getting cold.
Cycling shorts must offer excellent breathability and fit to avoid muscle vibration and thus delay the onset of fatigue.
Cycling shorts are usually made of very elastic fabrics with flatlock seams. These fabrics are made specially for heavy use and offer a great durability.
Cycling shorts should be built with an incorporated seamless seat-pad with great shock absorption and comfort to reduce fatigue in cyclists and make the garment more comfortable to wear. The seat-pad of the cycling shorts can also be made using a water-resistant treatment to allow moisture and sweat to be wicked away, thus accelerating the drying process.
Cycling socks are also made using breathable fabrics which tend to have different densities in order to drain moisture outwards. They are specifically designed for the right foot and left foot, with reinforced and protected areas.
Cycling helmets are an essential element for cyclists and must be lightweight and provide maximum ventilation and safety, as well as being aerodynamic in shape.
Our high-end cycling helmets are manufactured using an In-mould process in which the outer part and the polystyrene of the inner part are joined together in a single piece, increasing the resistance against impacts and improving the the transfer of impact energy.
Most cycling helmets have dial adjustment systems at the back to offer a perfect fit, which increases the comfort and safety of the cyclist. They can also have washable and comfortable padding, an anti-insect net and a removable visor.
Cycling glasses and goggles offer a distortion-free vision, allowing the objective to be seen with greater clarity as well as guaranteeing complete protection against UV rays. One of the most important factors in cycling glasses is that they are lightweight, to provide great comfort to the cyclist.
