Aero Tech Designs' Cycling Tights and Pants

Don't run from the cold; grab your cycling tights and get on your bike! Cycling in freezing temperatures is not only manageable but can be fun when you have dressed appropriately and you feel comfortable. Layering is always a good practice when you're planning on being active outdoors during cold months, and that is why Aero Tech Designs' tights wick sweat away, provide valuable muscle compression, and, of course, keep you warm. Aero Tech Designs men's cycling tights use a variety of fabrics to achieve these goals, depending on the degree of insulation and compression you need. Adding extra layers at your knees is also a best practice to stay warm and allow you to operate at peak performance. Ankle zippers also come in handy with cycling tights because they make it easier to take the tights off after a long, sweaty ride. Also, you can usually remove the tights or put them on without first taking your shoes off. Reflective elements at the ankle offer excellent visibility in low light conditions because your legs and ankles are constantly moving as you pedal. Reflective elements are vibrant and more noticeable to motorists. Aero Tech Designs offers many men's bike tights ideal for all seasons.

Cycling Tights' Fabrics

One rule of thumb is to cover your knees when outdoor temperatures drop below 69 degrees Fahrenheit. Spandex bicycle tights are ideal for 45 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit temperatures. Additionally, lightweight spandex bicycle tights and pants provide excellent sun protection in the summer months. Providing muscle compression, they insulate and enhance the blood flow through your muscles. Using compression garments both before and after exercise is recommended for this reason and spandex materials like Lycra improve compression. Another popular material for men's cycling tights is a soft, stretchable fleece composition. Brushed polyester fleece is most common in cycling tights designed for cold weather because the synthetic polyester material is hydrophobic, meaning that it wicks moisture. As you pedal, your perspiration is wicked away from your skin, allowing the tights to dry faster. Polyester fabrics provide a comfortable and thermally insulating layer that keeps you dry and warm. Most cyclists find that stretch fleece is warm to about 30 degrees Fahrenheit.

Padded Cycling Tights

Several Aero Tech Designs tights include multi-density foam or gel chamois pads for comfort during longer rides. The chamois pad provides support at the sit bones and prevents chaffing. Additionally, the long inseams offer an extra layer of support and warmth, and they can be worn as a baselayer or as an alternative to bicycle shorts.

Cycling Tights' Features

Lightweight spandex cycling tights are great for sun protection, compression, and stretch fleece tights insulate and keep you dry and warm in cold months. But the warmest option for winter cycling is windproof or wind-resistant pants that also feature thermal lining. These cycling pants prevent wind from cutting through while insulating and preserving heat. Many riders are surprised to learn how warmer they are simply by shielding the wind. Layering is always essential, but fewer layers are required if your outer layer is windproof. Multi-layer fabric that is thermal, breathable, and windproof is the key to this approach. To accomplish this balance, laminated fabrics that include three layers are ideal. The outer face fabric of winter windpants is typically composed of nylon or polyester that serves as the windbreaker shell. Next, the middle layer is a breathable yet waterproof membrane that pulls moisture from the inside layer next to the skin to evaporate into the air. A thermal layer of soft brushed fleece works to trap heat inside in its engineered hollow-core fiber structure. This layer also helps to wick moisture, keeping you dry, and for this reason, thermal layers perform at their best when they are touching your skin.

Interested in Compression?

Compression tights work by actively squeezing and massaging your muscles to reduce lactic acid buildup. This practice can benefit you during exercise and before and after your muscles perform an activity. Some people report experiencing the benefits of compression tights in other situations, such as long airplane rides to relieve fatigue experienced from long hours of inactivity in a cramped environment. Wearing compression tights and garments keeps blood flowing and offers substantial recovery effects. Muscle and vibration stabilization are increase power during periods of activity.

Reflective is Important on Cycling Apparel

Winter months mean more prolonged periods of low light and darkness. It is essential to be as visible as possible when cycling and being active outdoors during the winter. One easy way to enhance your visibility is to wear reflective cycling tights. Aero Tech Designs men's cycling tights include 3M Scotchlite reflective treatments that use glass beads lined up in a precise pattern to maximize light reflection back to the source, rather than scattering the reflective light. A film holds the polished, spherical glass beads in a mirrored film that reflects light towards its original direction. 3M is relied on by consumers and commercial enterprises everywhere for its brighter reflective performance. 3M's Scotchlite technology dramatically increases the visibility of cyclists, runners, and active outdoors people in low light conditions by reflecting light to the source. It is very luminous and effective in the dark, whereas generic and off-brand reflective treatments scatter light in all directions.

Key Features of Cycling Tights

It is crucial to evaluate your climate, riding style, ride duration, and personal temperature tolerance so that you can have an appropriate array of layers. Our cycling tight's temperature ranges for all seasons. Each season brings new challenges. When wearing the proper gear, the rider will be safer, warmer, and more visible on the road. Keep in mind your own needs, whether thermal warmth, reflectivity, or sun protection, before you gear up and head out on the road or trail. Layering is crucial, so everything from lightweight spandex tights to heavy-duty windpants can serve a utilitarian and robust purpose for your rides. Padded tights for cycling and unpadded compression tights for general activities and to use as base layers are available and come in regular, big, tall, and women's styles. Cycling tights should fit snug like a second skin to maximize the benefits of muscle compression and moisture-wicking while also preventinhafing.
