BREATHEABLE BASE LAYER
We all know the importance of the right clothing, inlcuding base layers, for the conditions in order to keep you warm, dry and comfortable. We love this lghtweight mesh as a base even in the hottest weather conditions to enhance circulation and move moisture away from skin. For indoor cycling, you can run the just a base layer plus your bigs or shorts.
BASE LAYER FOR YEAR-ROUND RIDING
The right base layer could be one of your most useful piece of cycling clothing that no one ever sees. Use it for indoor rides where the temperatures amp up as you ride; use it for early season rides to add an extra layer to ward off chillier temperatures; use it in the summer to wick moisture and provide a buffer for air to circulate. This long-sleeve option is also great for starting to ride in cooler temperatures.
SEAMLESS 4-WAY STRETCH
This Darevie base layer is a different from the other base layer we have listed. This one is a one-piece circular knit construction with no side seams. Fewer seams leaves less chance for chafing and discomfort. The sizing is also different: this mesh knit is super stretchy and each piece fits a wider range of sizes.
DAREVIE base layer 4-way stretch, high elasticity to 300% stretch, no wrinkle, no trace, wear resistance, high quality and beautiful price.
‘The type and structure re of a base layer needs to change in summer, but the principle remains the same,’ says Graeme Raeburn, lead designer for clothing manufacturer Rapha.
‘Sweat accumulating on your skin needs to be removed – by wicking – to help keep you comfortable and regulate your body temperature. I’d recommend wearing a base layer in all weathers. It’s just a question of choosing the right one for the conditions."
