    Cycling shorts help you stay more comfortable while exercising. These shorts for cycling make use of moisture wicking fabrics that keep skin drier. By removing moisture, cycling shorts keep you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. The classic design of cycling shorts involves a tight-fitting design and a pad to make sitting on the saddle more comfortable. Many times, these shorts, often called road shorts, consist of lycra materials. Tight fitting cycling shorts provide an aerodynamic fit, which is great for racing. You can find these classic shorts in fits like bib shorts, waist shorts, and full-leg tights. You also can find loose-fitting shorts called baggies, that typically have padded shorts as a liner. Trail riders, mountain bike riders, and recreational riders tend to use the baggie style shorts. These shorts provide better protection against scrapes from falls than the lycra cycling shorts.
