CRAFT WOMEN'S BASE LAYERS
For those of us who grew up wearing a 'jogbra' reinforced with what amounted to an ace-bandage, the Craft Sport Specific Bike Windblock Bra will be something of a glorious revelation. Designed by Craft with the rigors of serious cycling in mind, this bra will hold you up and keep you smiling.
Being in the cycling position is much different from a jogging or weight lifting position. In a perfect world, the bra should be designed with the pressures of cycling in mind. Craft has done this by making a bra that anticipates the freedom of lateral movement a cyclist requires while assuring that vertical movement is eliminated. They also added a body controlling fabric to the frontal portions of the bra to keep the breasts from bouncing or mis-adjusting themselves while you're hammering in the drops. The shoulder straps have been cut so that they'll be substantial enough to offer the required support, but not so wide that they actually dig into the sides of your armpits when you're reaching out to the bars.
The Craft Sport Specific Bike Windblock Bra offers much more beyond the cycling-specific cut and fit. It's a heavy-duty, ass-kicking winter essential base layer. Cold-weather-riding ladies know that no matter how effective your cold weather base layer is, if the bra is soaked with sweat, it's going to feel wet and cold. Craft comes to the rescue by making this bra as good as or better than their under shirt base layers at wicking and transporting sweat away from the skin. So you won't need to feel chilled to the bone anymore.
What really makes this a cold weather-specific bra, though, is the added windstopper layer on the outside of the bra. It doesn't make the bra any stiffer, but it will act as the last line of defense preventing the exposure of your chest to arctic drafts. To keep the bra comfortable around the edgings, Craft has added a soft mesh fabric.
The Craft Sport Specific Bike Windblock Bra has an UPF 50+ protection level for those unexpectedly warm rides when you can peel off all outer layers. It comes in White and in an array of sizes from X-Small through XX-Large. Please see the dropdown menu for availability.
