Singlets: Just the perfect thing for the hot days on the bike!
When it is hot, one needs to think of suitable cycling clothes that are adapted to the high temperatures. Although the cycling jersey is often a little too much, putting them aside completely does not work as well. A singlet provides you with the ideal solution for that since it is sleeveless, made of light fabric, and provides with the moisture management that is needed.
The combination of materials and their processing provide you with a high level of comfort.
Its breathable fabrics and perfect fitting ensure that perspiration is directly absorbed from the skin and channeled out of the body. With an extended back, its fitting is adjusted to the posture of the body on bicycle seats. Furthermore the flat offset seams prevent chafing. Additional and practical details make the difference when it comes to singlets.
These include tight but comfortable fittings, ventilation inserts, jersey pockets for arm sleeves or gels, as well as reflective elements. As far as the fabrics are concerned, singlets are equipped very technically. Odor inhibiting, cooling or wind repellent features are part of standard singlets. Singlets can either have full-length, half-length or no zipper at all.
Singlets are not only meant for biking.
Singlets are perfectly suitable for triathlon since after the discipline of swimming, you can keep them on until you cross the finish line. That´s why you won´t see people wearing them for cycling only, but also increasingly for jogging.
One rule applies to sophisticated singlets, cycling pants, cycling gloves and all the remaining biking gear: if you go for the more costly items, you will invest in highly-durable equipment that does not need to be replaced very often. At renowned manufacturers such as Scott, Pearl Izumi and Gore, Women and men will definitely find what they are looking for.
