You wear thermal clothing on your bare skin. After a (limited) time, this moisture and temperature regulating clothing becomes one with your skin and thanks to the special flat seams, you no longer feel that you are wearing it.
Thermal pants must/should fit tightly around your legs. Ladies' and men's models take this into account. Everything feels light and the technical fabrics are hygienic.
How does it work?
Perspiration is transported directly from the skin to the outside, where it can evaporate or be absorbed by your second layer of clothing.
Summer or winter?
Summer models keep the body dry and cool and focus specifically on wicking away moisture quickly. They also keep the lower body cool and fresh.
Winter thermal clothing emphasises dryness and warmth. It is therefore better to choose a lined model with an insulating effect, possibly with a water repellent outer fabric. Certain models are also equipped with a windproof membrane on the most sensitive parts of the body, which ensures a pleasant feeling in cold (riding) conditions.
Tip from RAD
For winter, don't choose based on the thickness of the material, but based on the properties of the material.
