One of the fundamental parts of cycling equipment is the Specialized culotte. Its main function is to protect by means of the pad (part padded in the perianal area of the culotte) to avoid chafing, injuries and the characteristic numbness that causes pedaling for hours on the saddle of the bike. There are several things to consider in relation to the Specialized culotte, among them we highlight the following:
✔️ The pattern of the garment varies depending on whether it is for men or women, to adapt to different physiognomies. The Specialized culottes for women are shorter, with a tighter waist and a greater profile of hips and the pad has the padding moved towards outer points, to fit the bones of the female pelvis. Also in the case of pants for women cyclists there is also the possibility that they are with or without straps to improve comfort. The most prominent Specialized culottes are Thermical RBX Comp, Candy (pirate) ...
✔️ Depending on the frequency and intensity with which you practice cycling, you must choose a culotte with the appropriate pad, that is breathable enough, comfortable and with the right quality, like our Thermical SL Pro.
✔️ This garment is worn with nothing underneath, since both the pad and the fabric of the rest of the culotte are designed to be in direct contact with the skin. Only in this way can the perspiration of the thighs and the crotch be absorbed and evacuated to the outside to keep the body dry and reduce the temperature produced by the effort and friction when pedaling. Avoid tightening the culotte waist to allow the passage of air and thus maintain the effectiveness of this garment.
✔️ As it is such a tight Specialized garment, you must choose the correct size that fits the body without squeezing too tight or loose. If possible, a test should be carried out on the saddle of the bicycle in the usual posture, to ensure that the straps have the appropriate length, the pad is placed correctly and the stockings are wide enough.
✔️ The Specialized culotte should cover practically all the thigh up to the knee, although the Specialized summer models can be shorter, covering only up to half of the thigh like our Specialized RBX Woman Sport culotte. These models have less muscle compression but the padbands are effective for long outings. The weight is also an indication of the muscle compression they offer. Specialized winter culottes introduce adjustment elements such as silicone strips or reinforcement with elastic rubber or any other type of material that prevents the bottom from rising when we start pedaling.
✔️ The color of the Specialized culotte should be taken into consideration especially if it is circulated by city or road. The more striking and vivid the color, the more visible the cyclist is to drivers.
With regard to Specialized, it uses some of the following technologies in its cycling culottes:
✔️ Body Geometry: saddle support points are specifically studied, both for men and women as they are different and depending on the distribution of forces and pressures resulting, the band is shaped offering different types of materials, shapes and densities Based on this study. Depending on the type of bib, Specialized is beginning to use bacteriostatic materials.
✔️ Braces with grid-shaped fabric to prevent the accumulation of sweat, in high-end Specialized bibs inserts carbon thread in the straps; On the other hand, in some girls' shorts, Specialized does not use the straps, which inserts an elastic band at the waist that allows it to perfectly hold the shorts.
✔️ Elastane fiber, used by Specialized in its short shorts, allows a perfect fit to the body, avoiding the appearance of uncomfortable wrinkles, the long shorts also uses Lombardy wool as material.
