howies Women's Breakaway Bib Short are a seamlessly knitted women's designed to offer excellent comfort. Using contoured panelling and seamless technology, the stretch fabric provides a second skin fit.
Integrated breathable panels minimize the need for seams and helps avoid chaffing, as well as having a high density foam insert which means increased comfort and fewer sore bits on your longer rides.
The women's specific 2-layer TMF Professional cycle pad is manufactured in Italy comprising 2 layers; one 40 density, 4mm thick foam bonded to a second, shock absorbent 90 density, 8mm foam in higher impact areas. Covered with an antibacterial finish to stay fresh and an elastic open cell surround that moves with your body.
The seamless circular knit technology used in this range means that these pieces are precision built to fit your body, just like your own skin. They provide a snug fit that will go virtually unnoticed as you wear it.
They are made on specialist machines capable of knitting yarn into a single continuous tube shape. This means howies make body panels in one piece, minimizing the need for seams - seams that could potentially cause painful friction or chaffing on longer rides.
One piece stretch fit panels and subtle details
The circular knitting machines are also capable of varying patterns in the fabric as they knit too. This means that howies can have different weaves on the same panel and precisely tailor them to match specific parts of the body. For instance, integration of lighter breathable panels in sweatier areas like the underarms and back, or produce areas with more compression around hems and places where you need a tighter fit. Howies can now do all this without the need for separate panels, seams and stitching.
This makes a truly comfortable, form fitting garment with a minimalist design. Just like us humans.
About Lycra Cycling Shorts
Cycle shorts offer unrestricted movement on the bike with the added benefit of a chamois for comfort. They are the traditional cycling leg wear for any distance rider. Lycra shorts hold their internal pad in the ideal position throughout the ride, offering comfort and cushioning for both on and off road riding. Lycra shorts stretch with your body so there are no seams to rub you up the wrong way or restrict your pedalling motion. They are lightweight in material and since there is only one layer of thin fabric, they breathe well and keep you cool on hot days, or can be used under a pair of winter tights. Higher end models will have more panels and will generally fit better, a good pair of shorts is essential for longer rides and combined with a chamois crème make a wise investment.
