Road Cycling Wear

Im looking to buy some new cycling clothes, but I am unsure of what kind of fabric to use. I have seen 90 Polyester and 10 Lycra, or just polyester and synthetic. What should I be looking for?

I like the clothing with some lycra in it. It stretches and moves with me.

Depends on what type of clothing you're talking about.

These are my favourite cycling shorts: 59% nylon, 22% polyester and 19% LYCRA®.

I prefer shorts with some polyester in them because I have a mild allergy to nylon and lycra.

Most of my jerseys are some type of polyester ... something like this one:

Winter wear is usually polypro or merino wool.
