Compression clothing has become increasingly popular in recent years with athletes, including cyclists. Compression clothes are thought to have a number of performance benefits that make them attractive additions to the serious cyclist's kit or indeed any cyclist looking to enhance their abilities.
Compression items of clothing are snug, form-fitting, garments that come in the form of tights, shorts or underwear and are generally made using spandex-type materials.
Wearing compression clothing helps to keep muscles warm and so helps to prevent muscle strains and tiredness. It also helps prevent rashes and chaffing by drawing sweat from the body so this type of clothing is ideal for cycling where being comfortable during a bike ride is of paramount importance. Compression shorts may, according to some evidence, also help to improve your athletic ability. It's also thought they could reduce the time muscles need to repair, making them potentially useful after a heavy cycling session.
If you are keen to push the performance of your cycling compression clothes such as arm sleeves and leg sleeves are good buys. They pump oxygen to active muscles while help prevent a build-up of lactic acid by increasing your circulation. Other options the keen cyclist could go for include bib shorts and the sleeveless tri suit which is aimed at tri athletes. With the calf muscles being all-important for cycling compression calf tights are good if you want to focus just on this area.
