Lightweight garment, worn next to the skin in hot weather to aid moisture management.

 

Our sleeveless Base layer is designed to be worn under the racing jersey to assist with moisture management from the body core. The main fabric is 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 sweat from the body and in the winter it acts as an extra layer of chest  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 winter 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.

    Got this base layer a couple of months ago for the Scottish summer and really like it. Feels very nice against the skin and fits well. I wear ladies S/M jerseys and got size S. Will be getting another one.

    Always used a tee shirt under a jersey in the past but encouraged by the price, quality and reviews I bought this base layer. First impression is how well packaged it is even though its not expensive you wouldn’t think it when you open and unwrap it. The garment itself is excellent such amazing quality at this price point. Not sure how they do it but goes to show how much other brands are ripping us off. Galibier my new go to brand. I bought medium and Im 5-10″ and 73kgs. Fits snug but its meant to.

    Ordered at lunchtime and it was through the door the next day when I got home. Very impressed. Sizing and fit is good. I would compare it to Rapha sizing if that helps anyone. I ordered a large.

  4. Georgios (verified owner)

    A great product which I find essential all year-round. Size M fits nicely for waist 32 and chest 39.

    Bought the XL (i’m a 44 chest) and fits well. Holds HRM tight and is very lightweight.
    No chaffing on the 2 important areas when it gets sweaty. Washes well, very happy with it.
    Great job on the total order being delivered in discreet packaging so she doesn’t know i’m buying more cycling gear..
