Frequently Asked Questions About adidas Cycling Gear

What gear do I need for cycling?

For cycling, you need form-fitting gear that won’t chafe, ride up or get caught in motion. Bib shorts are popular with cyclists. Or try a cycling jersey, jacket and shorts, or mix a tee, sports bra, hoodie and workout tights. The best shoes depend on the kind of cycling you want to do, but in general look for shoes with a stiff sole. Bike gloves will help you keep a firm grip on the handlebars. A helmet and sunglasses keep you moving with confidence while maintaining a level of safety. Don't forget a water bottle to stay hydrated.

What should a beginner wear for cycling?

Beginners looking for cycling gear should aim for form-fitting clothes made for biking, with sweat-wicking fabric and ventilation to keep you dry and comfortable. Cycling jackets often have pockets on the back to keep small items out of your way. Cycling tights, cycling shorts or bib shorts that are fitted are less likely to get caught in a wheel. A cycling jersey, tank top or cropped tee can help facilitate airflow. A sports bra with medium to high support is also well suited to cycling.

Are shoes necessary for cycling?

Shoes with a stiff outsole are necessary for cycling. There are several types of cycling shoes, depending on the type of pedal on your bike. A casual sneaker with a stiff sole to push down the pedal will work for everyday cycling. For increased efficiency, you may want to invest in a specific road, gravel or mountain cycling shoe, depending on your riding style. These often use cleats to connect directly to the pedals. Indoor cycling shoes can help with training between rides.
