The Short Sleeve Winter Base Layer (aka SSWBL) is our twist on a staple item of every cyclist’s winter wardrobe. Sometimes we have no choice but to venture out when it’s cold or wet, or worse, when it’s cold AND wet. That’s when the SSWBL is dug out from its summer hibernation. We have used a new technology, called NuYarn, a nylon core wrapped with merino wool which makes up 15% of the overall material making the fabric more comfortable, stretchier, drier, warmer, stronger, and tougher than typical wool. It’s surprisingly light for its warmth and warm for its weight.
- 35% stretchier, retains shape over time, even after washing
- 35% warmer due to its lower density, lighter and loftier fabric
- 5x faster at drying, due to the nylon core
