Mesh garment to be worn next to the skin in summer and manage moisture.

 

Our Base layer is designed to be worn next to the skin. The main body of the jersey is made from AirMesh, a perforated, polyester performance fabric; which is designed to help regulate body heat in all conditions and all seasons. For the summer months is helps to remove moisture from the body and in the winter it acts as insulation. All the seams have flatlock stitching so they won’t chafe.  The base layers are close fitting and cut longer at the back and raised at the front for a better fit on the bike.

Odour resistant, excellent perspiration wicking and thermoregulation.

 

The Base Layer is worn next to the skin not just for winter, it is equally effective in warmer conditions as well. Moisture Management is a main function for this primary layer; to assist in the removal of moisture from the skin. This layer should be close fitting with high stretch qualities.

An insulation layer should not be next to the skin, as it will ‘choke’ the key element of wicking perspiration. So in winter, a membrane garment should not touch the skin – a long sleeve base layer should be the first contact. This garment should still be thin to permit the moisture transfer to occur. The thermal protection of the rider should be carried out by the mid layer or jacket.

Even in summer, on all but the hottest days your Base Layer should wick moisture away from the skin to the outside of the garment where it evaporates quickly to give a cooling effect on the body. If you dress correctly, the temperature between the body and base layer should be the same all year round.Summer base layers should be super light with minimal seams and labels. Over 25 degrees, ultra light summer jerseys with their own wicking properties can stand alone unless they become saturated and sit wet on the skin providing a cold thermal bridge to the chest, unwanted on long descents.

    Brilliant base layer, now have 2 and simply interchange them daily. I’m between a medium and large at 71kg, 186cm tall and 102cm chest. Have one in each size medium and large and both work but prefer large as it’s a bit longer.
    Wick superbly, multiple washes and look brand new. Awesome value for money.

    Great base layer. Very much like ones from Morvelo in feel and I have always liked those so very happy with this one.
    Medium fits my 96cm frame just nicely.

    I own 3. Used in all seasons. Keeps me cool and dry during the hot months and helps add an extra layer during the winter. Fully recommend

    Absolutely brilliant baselayer.The medium fits my 37.5 inch(96cm) chest perfectly and the design is really cool too,shame it’s hidden by a jersey/jacket.As usual with Galibier it’s well made and priced fairly.
    Just ordered another as my son has “borrowed” the first one!
    If youre after a top performing baselayer,get one of these,you wont be disappointed.Great job Galibier.
