Description

Layer up.

During rides that involve low temperatures, your base layer acts as an insulator for your body. Similarly, in warm weather, that same layer under your jersey works to pull moisture away from your skin in order to keep you cool and comfortable. Castelli understands that the inconspicuous under-layer is hard at work regardless of your riding weather, which is why it introduced the Seamless Base Layer.

Castelli's Seamless Base Layer was constructed using two fabrics: polypropylene and nylon. These materials work in tandem in oder to perform the base layer's primary function -- pulling moisture away from the skin and drying it. Accordingly, the inner-layer is comprised of the polypropylene material, as it effectively pulls moisture away from the skin and transfers it to the outer-layer of nylon. And because nylon is lightweight and maintains an airy composition, it's a naturally efficient evaporator. The material dries much quicker than most, which means that instead of simply soaking you in your sweat, the base layer keeps you cooler by evaporating moisture next to the skin.

This moisture transfer is furthered by the three different mesh patterns on the base layer. Taking anatomy into account, this system maintains a consistently open mesh in order to provide the most ventilation possible, which keeps your body dry and comfortable throughout your rides.

The Castelli Seamless Base Layer is available in the sizes Small/medium, Large/x-large, and XX-Large and in the color White.

Castelli offers arguably the greatest (and largest) lineup of performance cycling clothing made in the sport. The level of thought, detail, and experience that Castelli puts into their gear (e.g., lightness glove, climbers jersey, mortirolo jacket, even the free 9 sock) is pretty amazing.

Anyway, this baselayer is designed to keep you cool in warm weather by holding your jersey off your skin. This promotes sweat evaporation and cooling.

Every serious rider should consider using a baselayer like this in warm weather. Experiment with it and I think you will find that it works really well.

A micro-climate for your core!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I'm a big believer in technical undershirts for low temperatures on up to about 80 degrees F. Beyond 80 in a low humidity environment I can't see much benefit over having a good quality jersey against my skin, but there are situations where it could still be helpful. This undershirt is perfect for the temps I've been riding in lately, 45 to 65 degrees. It creates a nice layer of trapped air while efficiently moving moisture away and keeping me dry with a stable core temp. It's very mesh like, and given it's stretch the sizing is very forgiving. It has a nice long torso and lays flat against your skin. It will look very small when you pull it out of the box. My wife laughed when she saw it and insisted I never let anyone see me in it! So of course I made it a point to walk around the house in it! My only complaint is that the material will snag easily. Use caution if you're wearing a watch when you put it on, and perhaps, be willing to accept that you'll get some snags that widen some of the mesh openings over time.

Totally Awesome Base Layer!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Unbelievable fabric & mesh design. Wicks better than any other base I've used in the past. Ideal for hot days too! It keeps a dry (not clammy) layer against your skin thus keeping you comfortable on hot days. Wicks moisture to outer jersey where it evaporates. I love this base. I am 5'7" @ 165lbs. chest 40" and a lg/ex lg. size fits snug like it was designed to fit for maximum efficiency.

Awesome Base Layer

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This base layer did exactly what I was hoping it would do. It helps me maintain an even body temperature in various Fall climates and keeps my jersey from getting sweaty and cold against my skin. It works well for me in temps from mid 50 degrees to mid 80 degrees, but I have hopes that I can use this base layer year round. Very impressed with the quality as well. I can barely tell it's on when I wear it. One note, when you get first pull it out of the box it will be tiny like a child's shirt. I'm 5'10' 150lbs. and the S/M fits perfect.
