VAUDE bike shorts for women
Well-fitting bike shorts for women are often the deciding factor for your performance and fun on a tour. Be it a racing bike, mountain bike or touring bike: if the seat padding is too tight, the waistband pinches and your thighs get cold, the cycling pleasure is greatly diminished. VAUDE bike shorts for women are not only cut for comfort – they also protect against the weather.
Cycling shorts or cycling pants?
When purchasing bike shorts for women, many cyclists are faced with a decision: Do I need bike shorts or instead, long cycling pants? Of course, first and foremost the temperature is key. For winter, cycling pants for women or even thermal cycling pants are the first choice. The selection ranges from comparably thin material for the spring and autumn to lined pants for below-zero temperatures. Knee and leg warmers are an alternative to cycling pants. With them, you can continue to wear your bike shorts in cooler weather. For form-fitting cycling tights for racing bikes and casual bike shorts for mountain bikes, you can use legwarmers. Cycling pants for women in softshell fabric are wind- and water-resistant, yet breathable.
You can also choose between cycling bib tights and cycling pants with a normal waistband. Cycling bib tights have the advantage that nothing slides down when you are on your bike. Bike shorts for women have bibs made from fine mesh material to ensure that you don’t sweat under your jersey in the summer. For touring in cool weather, there are lined bib tights. The breathable bib section is cut higher and lined to keep the upper body warm.
MTB, racing bike, gravel bike: VAUDE bike shorts for any type of sport
Racing cyclists need close-fitting, stretchy and breathable bike shorts with comfortable seat padding. For sporty trips and long tours, the shorts must fit perfectly. They should not have irritating seams: nothing should rub. At the same time, bike shorts for women must be breathable and dry quickly.
While bike racers prefer sporty styling, mountain bikers tend to wear casual bike shorts. Here, the most important factor is freedom of movement. Trousers with zippers on the legs are particularly suitable, as they can be worn as bike shorts or long bike pants on an MTB. Easy-care material ensures that the MTB shorts are easy to clean. Depending on the season, bike shorts for women either ensure warm thighs or ventilate during strenuous, sweaty ascents.
Bikepackers, bicycle travelers and commuters all benefit from bike shorts for women. All women who use their bikes a lot appreciate comfortable gear. VAUDE bike shorts for women are ideal for everyday wear and even cut a good figure in the city.
