When it comes to performance and comfort when cycling, it’s absolutely paramount that you’re well-equipped with appropriate, specialised cycling clothing. Cycling clothing is varied and is engineered to provide the cyclist with many benefits, such as an aerodynamic form, thermal regulation properties and comfort when in the saddle. Cycling clothes are especially designed for the needs of cyclists, and specialised footwear, such as Mavic Road Shoes, looks at optimising cycling specific elements, such as power transfer, to improve your overall efficiency. Here at Westbrook Cycles, we can kit you out with cycling jerseys, cycling shoes, cycling bibshorts and cycling gloves, ensuring that you both look and feel the part whilst out and about on your favourite ride.
You’ll no doubt spot many cyclists tearing up the roads in everyday wear, perhaps they’re on the way back from the office in a shirt and tie, or between appointments in casual wear. Whilst this is fine for extremely short, leisurely commutes, if you’re going to be braving the elements and really churning the pedals amongst traffic and pedestrians, specialised cycling clothing will make your experience a lot more efficient, safer and enjoyable. Whilst cycling clothing is an extensive topic, and products are available for just about every instance you could think of, we’d recommend the following essential cycling clothing: breathable lycra shorts, a high visibility cycling jacket and a pair of dedicated cycling shoes, designed for the type of bike you ride.
