The sport of cycling has been around for many years. It started out being just a type of transportation to a police “car” to a worldwide sport. Cycling is known all over. Although this sport is mostly focused on the bike it includes many other types of equipment such as clothing.
If you are in a cycling race you could just wear a baggy t-shirt and shorts but if you ask a professional they’ll tell you other wise. The clothing is skin tight and made of various materials. Actually the materials are the most important.
One of the most used fabrics is micro fiber. This micro fiber is very thin, light weighted, and is wind resistant. This fiber is mostly used in dry conditions. This type of material is also waterproof and can be used for raincoats. Although the micro fibers are so tightly “squeezed” together it still allows the skin of the body to breathe.
So as you can tell the sport of cycling is not just about the bike but the clothing!
