Chpt./// Base Layer 1.81 - Inner Space
POLYESTER MICROFIBRE WITH HYDROPHILIC OUTER LAYER. PARAMETRIC DATA PATTERN. A LIGHT, SOFT AND STYLISH BASE LAYER.
"This is a microfiber polyester made as light and soft as possible. Its hydrophilic outer layer wicks moisture off the skin to the jersey yet doesn’t absorb moisture along the way.
We made it a perfect weight so that when paired with the 1.21 Jersey you end up with the combined weight of a normal looking jersey only with much better comfort and moisture management. Contrary to the subdued colours of outer layer we decided to make the baselayer a bit more colourful, much the way a gentleman may choose the inner lining of his suit to contrast with the outside, in tailoring this is called a reveal, a flash ofcolour occasionally glimpsed that shows there’s something more going on than at first perceived.
The neck is a little rounder than normal, more like a vest than a t-shirt, this compensates for the higher necks of the 1.21 and 1.61. I chose a sleeveless cut as this and the 1.21 Jersey are designed to be used together, sleeves on an undershirt can often be more uncomfortable with a short sleeve jersey.
The coloured design is taken from parametric patterns created from the data (a combination of my heart rate, watts, speed, distance etc.) of one of my final races, stage 17 at the 2014 Vuelta Espana."
