MENS CYCLING SHORTS at OOTDOORS, Scotland’s leading online outdoors store.

Modern mens cycling shorts are often made of spandex (Lycra) with a synthetic chamois which acts as an elastic interface between the cyclist’s body and the saddle, and are produced in a variety of shapes and styles to suit the needs of different riders.On some cycling shorts different materials are often placed on different parts of the shorts to take advantage of each materials benefit providing a very efficient cycling short. For example, the patterns used for the chamois on women’s cycling shorts tend to be quite different from those used for men’s. The hem of each leg is usually lined with elastic and/or silicone that clings to the skin, keeping it in a fixed position. These shorts made from several panels (or cuts of fabric) fit better and are more beneficial, especially for racers, but cost more.

Short-legged elastic tights commonly worn as street wear, under girls skirts and dresses, for gymnastics and ballet practice, or under athletic and running shorts are sometimes also referred to as bike shorts, but they are typically simpler and lighter garments than those worn by cyclists and generally lack the chamois or faux-chamois lining.
