Description

Keep it cool.

The Transfer Lite Short Sleeve Base Layer is meant to fit like a second skin. In fact, if you're going to wear a base layer, you want it snug so it pulls sweat directly off your torso and prevents you from having that clammy sensation from a damp clinging jersey. It will also help negate the potential of getting chilled as you finish your ride after the heat of the day has passed. 

The Transfer Lite Short Sleeve Base Layer does even more work than what's possible with standard synthetic yarns because it's made with a soft inner layer called Minerale. It has fifteen times the surface area of normal polyester yarns to help it wick sweat directly from your skin like a sponge. The beauty is that it doesn't absorb moisture, rather it spreads it out on the surface of the fabric for maximum evaporation -- leaving you feeling dry and comfortable regardless of the outside temperature. In fact, it dries 50% faster than standard polyester fabric.

Minerale also prevents the growth of bacteria that can cause the familiar synthetic aroma to take hold of your cycling clothing. This stink resistance is due to the inclusion of minerals in the porous fibers of the yarns.The Pearl Izumi Transfer Lite Short Sleeve Base Layer comes in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and is available in White.

as this is a "lite" base layer, what temperature range is this recommended for?

Responded on

It's hard to give a real temperature range for anything, because there are so many variables that go into how warm each individual will be in any given circumstance. With a base layer it gets even harder... and you have to think about what you would be putting over said base layer if we are talking cooler temps. A short sleeve like this is best suited for warmer weather with nothing over it though, so this would be a summer base layer for sure. As to how hot of a temp you would be comfortable in, in it? no one can really answer that but you after you've tried it. Good luck, and happy biking!
