As a cyclist, I believe that the first consideration for motorcycle riders when choosing a riding outfit is whether it is beautiful, whether it has a rainproof effect, and whether it has a reflective warning effect. Ordinary high-end fabric jerseys have a certain waterproof function, which is divided into inner waterproof and outer waterproof.
The waterproof outer layer is usually more expensive, because the fabric of this kind of riding suit firstly ensures the protection function in the event of an accidental riding, and secondly, it also ensures the ventilation problem during the riding process, but also in terms of softness. With some consideration, the price will naturally be high. The inner layer will be relatively comfortable to wear under normal waterproof conditions, because the fabric can be made more soft. The outer fabric of this type of cycling clothing only needs to bear the protective function, so it can be more limited and open more air channels. Most of the so-called four-sequence jerseys we have invented are mainly double-layered. At the same time, the waterproof layer also has the effect of windproof.
After many old knights, especially those who have traveled a long time, they reacted. No matter how good cycling clothes are, they are not worth two Taobao-level cycling raincoats. This is because almost all of the waterproofing of a jersey is achieved through the use of a raincoat, and the coating isn’t necessarily very good. Moreover, the application of the coating will face problems such as the consumption and fading of the coating. Therefore, like most outdoor clothing, cycling clothes should not be washed too often. The reflective riding raincoat should not be cleaned frequently, otherwise the reflective strip and waterproof coating will be damaged to a great extent.
So since ordinary cycling clothes are waterproof and not allowed to be used, why do I have to buy a cycling raincoat? Because ordinary riding clothes are mainly used for emergency and short-distance use.
