Lycra Shorts and Bibs for Mountain Biking

MTB Lycra Shorts

Lycra has long been the de facto standard clothing material amongst road bikers. But, this stretchy, breathable, and moisture-wicking fabric is catching on in themountain biking community amongst riders looking to maximise performance.

Lycra vs. Baggy Shorts for Mountain Biking

Mountain bikers typically turn to baggy shorts rather than tight-fitting Lycra. However, Lycra has several advantages that baggy shorts simply can’t provide.This stretchy material does an excellent job of wicking moisture away from your body and dries extremely fast in the breeze of a downhill section of trail. On top of that, Lycra’s tight fit helps to hold a chamois in place right where it needs to be – not allowing it to slip off to the side. The other big advantage to Lycra is that,unlike baggy shorts, the material won’t pinch or pull on the saddle as you shiftriding positions.For mountain bike racers, there’s little question that Lycra shorts are the way to go. Lycra fits tighter to your body, so it’s much lighter and more aerodynamic thanany pair of baggy shorts. If you’re looking to get into enduro or downhill racing, investing in a pair of Lycra mountain bike shorts is a good place to start.There are a few downsides to Lycra, but they’re small. The first is that many Lycra shorts don’t have pockets, so you’ll need to find another way to carry your car keys, phone, and snacks. The second is that, at least amongst mountain bikers, Lycra has a reputation for looking weird.Thankfully, both of these problems can be easily solved by wearing Lycra mountain bike shorts underneath baggy shorts. With that setup, you can enjoy the comfort benefits of Lycra along with the pockets and aesthetics of traditional mountain bike shorts.

Lycra Shorts vs. Lycra Bibs

One of the biggest decisions you’ll need to make in switching to Lycra is whether you want shorts or bibs. Most cyclists recommend bibs if you don’t mind the waythey feel on your body, since they ensure that your shorts stay perfectly in place. Lycra shorts for mountain biking are less invasive, but you’ll want to make sure thefit is tight enough that they won’t move around as you’re riding.Keep in mind that you can wear either Lycra mountain bike shorts or bibs underneath a pair of baggy shorts.

Check the Chamois

The most important part of any pair of Lycra mountain bike shorts is the chamois.Some shorts offer relatively thin pads that are best suited for shorter rides andsmoother trails. On the other hand, you can find plenty of Lycra mountain bikeshorts built with thick chamois that keep you comfortable and protected over long rides on bumpy terrain.
