What are biker shorts?
Biker shorts, also known as cycling shorts, are shorts that are designed to support your performance when riding a bike. But their functional features also make them a brilliant piece of clothing for all types of workouts. These form-fitting shorts create a smooth and aerodynamic fit, plus their figure-hugging fabrics stay fixed in place to reduce chafing as well as the risk of material getting in the way. Meaning you can enjoy a workout free from distractions, allowing you to focus on the road or trail ahead.
Cycling shorts also have a secure waistband, keeping them fixed in place, and are usually longer than many gym shorts, sitting at around 7” or 9”. Bike shorts have risen in popularity for so much more than just bike riding, due to their design that allows them to stay fixed in place, as well as workout friendly materials that keep you cool and dry. This makes them ideal for gym workouts, yoga sessions and sports too.
Their flattering design has been a key reason why you might often see bike shorts worn to parties, concerts or festivals. Across our range, you can find high waists and elasticated waistbands for a sculpting fit, as well as added features such as ruched bum detailing that accentuates the glutes. You can also find features such as pockets, yes you heard that right, biker shorts with pockets, so you can keep your belongings on you safely.
Difference between normal shorts and Cycling shorts
Biker shorts are designed for sports. They are usually created with breathable and sweat wicking materials to keep you feeling fresh and dry when bike riding or working out on a warm day, and might have features such as elasticated waistbands and fitted legs to keep them firm in place. A pair of women’s biker shorts will help keep you comfortable with minimal distractions, so you can focus on going the distance. Whereas normal shorts could come with any type of material, some may not be breathable, some might become rough and scratchy as you cycle, or some could even become soaked and heavy with sweat as you make your way through your workout. We always recommend wearing cycling shorts or gym shorts for your workout.
