Hi, my name is Hedi Alavi, and I'm going to explain what is the purpose of cycling shorts. So cycling shorts are great whether you're an indoor cyclist or an outdoor cyclist. Specifically if you're an outdoor cyclist because you tend to spend a lot of time on the saddle, so seated down onto the saddle. Now, one thing that is great about cycling shorts that will help with that is the padding inside the cycling shorts. It provides a great barrier between you, your skin, and the saddle. So it keep you nice and comfortable over long rides. Now another thing about the shorts is that they're made out of really stretchy and flexible material, so they will bend and move and flex as you move. They move to your contour of your body. And another thing is they're moisture, moisture-resistant, so when you sweat, they stay relatively dry. Now you want to definitely go ahead and choose, they have different fabrics, different kinds of quality of fabric, you might want to go ahead and choose the one that's most appropriate to the climate and the surroundings that you're in.
