Many are under impression that cyclists wear Lycra. Some do, however it's quite a bad choice of a fabric considering it's use and function. Lycra is highly stretchable and can act as a second skin but it won't last in such shape for long - it bags and thins quickly and its color deteriorates considerably under typical outdoor usage. Polyester is the fabric of choice in the competitive and recreational cycling industry. Whether blended with Lycra (Spandex) or by itself, Polyester is the leading fabric for the cyclists.
