Cycling Shirts: How to Buy for Comfort on the Ride

Cycling shirts are also called cycling or biking jerseys because they are similar to other sports jerseys people where to play games. Although many people who ride bikes recreationally throw on any old tee shirt or sweatshirt they feel like, designated shirts have benefits above and beyond regular active wear.

Both male and female cycling shirts are available in sleeveless, short sleeved and long sleeved styles. Since they are designed to fit slim or tight against your body, many are constructed with a zipper all the way up the front so it is easy to get in and out of the cycling shirts you wear. There are, however pullover styles for people who prefer that type.

When you go to buy cycling shirts for yourself or someone you know who enjoys writing, it is important to know the precise size you need. You do not want cycling shirts to be baggy or constrictive. To lose can increase drag and wind resistance. Too tight can lead to uncomfortable rubbing or chafing. Most shirts are longer at the back to provide full coverage when you are seated at an angle on the bicycle.

The main point of buying cycling shirts still have an athletic jersey made of comfortable, breathable fabric that wicks moisture away from your skin and dries quickly without cooling you too much. Most are made from similar materials which makes the selection process come down to personal sense of style and favorite color. If you are a frequent rider, it is a great idea to buy multiple shirts in all styles so you are comfortable all year long.
