When it gets really dirty, wet and cold, you usually prefer to wear long cycling shorts on the trails. Especially in winter and autumn it is more pleasant to cover your legs completely and not just rely on the classic bike shorts. Whether you are looking for a casual downhill pant, a sporty biblong, leggings, warm softshell pants or waterproof rain pants, we have the right pants for you in our store. It can also be advantageous to wear long cycling shorts in the warmer seasons, which is why we offer you especially breathable models. In our shop you will find the ideal cycling shorts for every condition, of course we also have the right cut for women. In order to provide you with a bit of clarity, we have listed the different types of trousers here:
These long cycling shorts come in a casual cut and with a lot of style. It offers not only a cool look but also the most protection. The Downhill Pant is the most robust representative in this category and relies on tear-resistant materials. You will probably look in vain for pockets, but stretch inserts are often sewn into the seat and knee area to increase freedom of movement. Normally, the long downhill pants are also ergonomically pre-shaped, i.e. the knees are slightly bent.
Tight cycling shorts
The tight-fitting cycling shorts, also called tight, are primarily made for road cyclists. They protect your legs from wind and cold even on extensive cycling tours on icy days. They are the right choice when it is too cold even for arm and leg warmers. High-quality materials allow for fast moisture transport and prevent water from penetrating.
Particularly in winter, the softshell pants oht find their use. They keep you warm and are water repellent. A high breathability is also important here, because who exerts himself also comes with ice and snow into the sweat.
Especially in Germany, it unfortunately happens even in summer that it rains in torrents. In this case, rain pants are just the thing, because you can continue your tour without getting wet. They are usually cut a little wider, so that they can be easily pulled over your shoes and clothes. So there is no need to change completely and you can make the rain pants ready for use in no time.
A biblong is always a good option when it's too nippy for shorts. It's basically identical to the popular bibshort, but with long legs and usually also with two loops that you pull over your shoulders like suspenders. The fabric is pulled up further, so your back and hips are also warmed underneath.
The all-rounder for every use
You can also find zip-off versions of some bike pants in our shop. A small zip turns the long cycling shorts into bike shorts, so you are perfectly prepared for any weather and can wear them in summer as well as in winter. Two birds with one stone, so to speak.
