A Complete Guide To The Correct Maintenance Of Cycling Clothing

Wearing professional cycling clothes can reduce wind resistance and increase riding speed. Like other functional uniforms, cycling clothes are made of special fabrics. According to the needs of users, there are many types of cycling clothes and different functions.

Putting aside the vertical deviation, all qualified cycling clothes have the basic functions of quick-drying, perspiration, ventilation, support, and compression similar to other support or compression underwear. And our daily use process is also the process of wearing the fabric, shape, and characteristics of the cycling clothes.

  • Cycling clothes have all the functions of fabrics, such as breathability and quick-drying, perspiration and antibacterial, sun protection, etc. As the fabric ages or breaks, it will inevitably be greatly reduced.
  • Cycling jersey fabric has high resilience, that is, compression function, which provides effective support for muscles and enhances recovery ability. In addition to the role of elastic fibers in the fabric, this function also depends on the fit or tightness, whether the tailoring and splicing are appropriate, and so on. Then the aging of the fabric, the elastic fiber wear and tear caused by improper use, and the deformation will also affect the function of the cycling jersey.
  • In addition to its breathable and antibacterial properties, cycling pants also play a role in support, protection, and cushioning. There are many factors that affect the function of cycling pants, such as weight, tightness, friction with the seat, high-frequency expansion, sweat, frequency, and time of use. Cycling pants will be compressed during use, and with the extension of use time, the touch and resilience will gradually decrease.

In order to reduce the wear and tear of cycling clothing and extend its service life as much as possible, we need to carry out the following maintenance tips for cycling clothing.

Clean in time

The sweat left on the cycling clothes after exercise, if not cleaned in time, will breed bacteria and corrode the fabric. Therefore, the cleaning cycle of cycling clothing should be “after each use”. If it is too late to clean in time, at least put it in a ventilated place to dry, so as not to leave sweat for a long time.

Use mild detergent

Use mild detergents, with as few additives as the standard. If you don’t sweat a lot, you can even use a cleanser, soak it in water when not in use, and rub it gently. Do not use softeners, dye-containing emulsions, and enzyme-containing emulsions because they can deform elastic fibers.

Try to wash by hand

Do not wash the cycling clothes and cycling trousers vigorously, but try to wash them by hand to avoid damage to the fabric surface and fibers. Do not spin dry after washing. If you must machine wash, you need to close the zipper and machine wash the back of the bag, preferably a laundry bag with a skeleton.


The use of isopropanol and white vinegar can effectively remove odor and antibacterial. Spray 70% isopropyl alcohol on the shirt and wait for it to dry. You can use diluted white vinegar to soak your clothes, but it will leave the sour taste of white vinegar.

Cool and dry

Cycling clothes are mostly made of quick-drying fabrics, which can be air-dried naturally in a ventilated place, and do not expose them to the sun.

Wash separately

Because there is a lot of sweat and dust on the cycling clothes, try to wash them separately. If you still have self-adhesive cycling gloves and other items, try not to wash them together with the jersey-self-adhesive may scratch the fabric of the jersey.

If conditions permit, it is best to prepare more than two cycling pants for rotation, which can reduce the frequency of continuous use and extend the use period. If you want to know more about cycling clothes after reading the above, you can get a comprehensive solution by contacting us.
