Abstract
This study is to understand the problems of cycle wear. Interviews and surveys were done to target male and female cyclists in order to understand the wearing conditions and satisfaction of cycle wearers. A total of 443 surveys were used to analyze demographic information, inconvenience and design preference. The average age of male respondents was 34.45 and females was 33.39. The majority were in their 20s and 30s. As for the bicycle riding time, 41.9% of females cycled in the morning and 39.5% cycled in the evening. For men, 44.7% of males cycled in the evening and 33.3% cycled in the morning. The number of cycle wear owned by female respondents were higher than men. Quick water-absorbent and drying properties were considered as important functionality in cycle wear for 87.8% of males and females. When wearing cycle wear, it was found that females felt more discomfort than males in terms of jersey top length. The study results indicated that cycle wear wearing conditions were different according to gender. © 2017, The Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles.
