For over three decades women of all ages and riding disciplines have been able to turn to Terry for best-in-class cycling apparel, saddles, and accessories that prioritize performance, comfort, and personal style. It has always been our philosophy that cycling is for everyone and this summer, we decided it’s high time we truly offer riding gear for all and introduced some particularly compelling Men’s apparel to our lineup. Ladies will always come first in our little corner of the cycling world but this season, we’d like to extend an invite to the guys to discover the Terry difference. Here’s a sampling of what’s in store for men…
Top Of The Line
All the calls (some shouted from mountain tops) for a male companion to our revolutionary Soleil bike tops led to the creation of our SolMate collection. Complementary in print, fully UPF 50+ sun protective and crafted to fit real bodies, we originally designed these duos for couples who love to do everything together, including riding. However, there is no reason the Men’s Soleil Long Sleeve can’t be worn solo or on active pursuits that don’t just involve cycling. You see, the magic comes from the ultralight and smooth micropoly/spandex fabric that is comfortably wearable in every climate and every season. It wicks moisture, feels cool against the skin, has anti-odor properties, and built-in sun protection that won’t wash away or fade over time. Outfitted with rear pockets and styled to move without restriction, the Men’s Soleil is technically geared for all-day activity whether you’re cycling or casting. We’ve seen it used for hiking, biking, fishing, pickleball, in the gym and on the golf course—the opportunities are endless.
Don’t just take our word for it, let these 5-star reviews speak for themselves.
Great Men’s top
My husband has been jealous of my Soleil jerseys for as long as I’ve worn them. We were excited to see a men’s version. I bought it for him and he loves it. His favorite thing is that it’s not scratchy like the other men’s tops he has and he likes that the long sleeves keep the sun off his skin. The fit is true. He’s thinking about getting another.– Nadine S.
Can’t get this top off my husband!
I bought this top and the women’s top together. It is really comfortable as well as attractive. My husband wears it all the time. He likes the feel of it and the fit is perfect for him.– Constance L.
Bottoms By ZOIC
When it came to offering the guys something to pair up with our new Men’s Soleil, we turned to one of the leaders in cycling bottoms for men: Zoic. Founders, Eric and Paul, created their first mountain bike short in 1994 to bring tech-blended comfort to the growing population of fat tire aficionados. This heritage of innovation and exploration is forever infused in their versatile designs for everyone from downhill deviants to entry-level commuters, to runners and surfers alike. We couldn’t think of a better team to partner up with and are thrilled to be carrying their technically packed, yet super wearable bike bottoms for both men and women.

This isn’t our first rodeo or even our second when it comes to designing and supplying the most comfortable bike saddles on the market for women and men. It’s our belief that being on the right saddle lays the foundation for cycling success. The wrong fit will make every mile feel like a chore—and often a painful one at that. For this reason, we offer myriad options for every style of riding from road cycling to commuting to mountain biking and endurance efforts. Here’s a list of just some of our Men’s saddles that have led to hundreds of thousands of success stories.
Fly Ti Gel
Originally introduced in 1999, the Italian-made Fly set the standard for men’s saddle comfort. It’s wowed fans across the world including pro riders, RAAM riders and randonneurs. This particular version bumps up comfort levels with a thin layer of gel across the saddle top. The Fly Ti Gel is intended for endurance/distance riders and triathletes who put more pressure against the front of the saddle. Also available in gel-free, synthetic-covered (and vegan-friendly) versions, and a shock-absorbing option that is particularly popular with mountain bikers.
Liberator Y Elite
The men’s Liberator Elite is designed for the endurance and touring rider who needs all-day comfort, demands premium features and wants the optimal balance of relief and saddle weight. This saddle has a wider cutaway than the other Liberators in our line, providing additional relief when pursuing high mileage and a thin gel layer along the top of the saddle to provide an increased level of comfort.
