Why do you wear underwear?
Cycling underwear is also called base layer and with good reason. It actually forms the base of your outfit. Underwear is characterized by the fact that it helps your body to get rid of perspiration during an effort. This keeps the skin dry and you can continue to cycle comfortably. An undershirt is always tightly connected to the skin to be as functional as possible. Summer underwear is made of lightweight material that cools the body and winter underwear is characterized by properties that keep the body warm and of course the long sleeves.
When to use cycling underwear?
