The Winter Baselayer Guide

The first step in dressing comfortably for winter conditions is getting your baselayer right, with the choices available today it’s easy to cover almost every temperature you might go riding in.

To help you decide we’ve divided our baselayers by the ideal temperature range, though it’s worth bearing in mind that everyone copes differently with cold temperatures and heat generated by exercise, if you run hot go for a cooler baselayer and if you struggle to stay warm then try a warmer one.

BODYFIT PRO BASELAYER SS

Our BodyFit Pro baselayers use our specially developed Thermal Pro fabric, which is a grid patterned lofted polyester that traps warm air but lets moisture escape. This means that you can put in big efforts without having to suffer a damp baselayer chilling you down afterwards, it’s also much more adaptable in changing temperatures. Like all BodyFit Pro products the fit is ergonomic and fits perfectly with other Bodyfit products. Also available in LS (below) for colder temperatures.
