The Importance Of Cycling Pants

For friends who always complain about "riding the butt hurts", in addition to changing the comfortable seat cushion, the best way is to wear a pair of suitable cycling pants.

Generally speaking, cycling pants are tight-fitting, and a layer of sponge pad is sewn on the crotch. In addition to absorbing sweat and reducing wind resistance, it also reduces hip damage and improves riding comfort.

The material of the cycling pants is easy to export the sweat from the body to the outside, keeping the skin dry. The inner thigh of the cycling pants and the part of the material in contact with the seat bag are relatively special, which can avoid friction between the top tube and the inner thigh when bending.

Thank you very much. This is a very good suggestion. I believe that through this way, we can find a suitable Cycling Pants for ourselves.

For most riders, a new Cycling Pants is a major financial investment. It's important, then, to prevent rust or corrosion from damaging your Cycling Pants.
The condition of the Cycling Pants is our most important consideration. Before each ride, we must develop a habit of checking whether the Cycling Pants are sensitive, and whether the Cycling Pants are working when riding at night. Although riding is good, if you do not master the correct Cycling Pants, it is easy to cause physical injury.

The biggest concern people have with Cycling Pants is how long the Cycling Pants will last. Generally speaking, the service life of an Cycling Pants is three to five years, and the factors affecting the life are mainly the following aspects.
1. One of the best ways to ensure that your Cycling Pants will last for many years is to avoid contact with bodies of water.
2. Cycling Pants are one of the most important parts of an Cycling Pants and can last a long time, depending on many factors. A thorough inspection every few months is recommended. The Cycling Pants is the only contact part between the Cycling Pants and the ground. With the right speed, clean terrain, and a good PSI setting, Cycling Pants will last the longest.
3. You wouldn't know under what conditions your Cycling Pants would suddenly fail.
4. Cycling Pants can effectively block the muddy water and sand particles driven by the Cycling Pants when riding.

The custody of Cycling Pants is indeed a big problem.

And will pay attention to my words in the future.

You can get STD by riding on wet roads without fenders and pants.

What is the meaning of pants?

I think you're definitely the person to answer this.

That is only an important question if you are riding a DF bike.

Right, the important question about padding on a recumbent is whether it's sufficiently absorbent and easy to change.

Good, riding a saddle without pants after a Koala did the same is just asking for trouble. Especially if it's a leather saddle. (Seatpost without saddle is even worse, but that's a whole 'nother issue.)

Riding pants are a good option. But finding a suitable pair for a Big to Over Size guy can be hard and expensive. Increasing padding is not always the answer but having your padding staying in place close to your skin I am sure is good. I once saw a guy bigger than me ridding a bike with a large pair of Padded Bike Shorts over his Cotton Sweat pants. It looked odd but he was ridding so what the ell.

Yep... I think Bicycle Pants are a good option but finding that pair that fit could be a very tedious challenge...

When it comes to cycling pants, I find one pair a day usually suffices.
