ENDURA MEN'S BASE LAYERS
If being cold and sweaty is your thing, by all means, don't ride with a base layer. But, if these are conditions that you would rather eliminate, we suggest slipping on the Endura Baa Baa Short Sleeve Merino Base Layer.
A cute name aside, the Baa Baa Merino base layer wicks and retains core temperature like a sheep possessed. Made from 100% fine-gauge Merino wool, the base layer does everything that a synthetic can do and then some -- did we mention that it does it better, too? Exploiting Merino's natural characteristics, the base layer is a highly effective insulator. Even when wet from rain, wool traps air between the surface of the skin and material. While letting go of excess, corruptive heat, Merino retains the perfect consistent temperature around the body. As you probably just guessed, Merino is an efficient breather, but you might not have guessed that it's a powerful mover of moisture, as well. The more that you sweat, the more that the base layer wicks it to the quick-drying surface. So, with the Baa Baa, you'll be riding drier and more comfortably than just with a jersey. Also, for your friends' sake, Merino is a natural odor-fighter -- no more stinking over post-ride espresso.
As far as fit, the Baa Baa resides comfortably on the skin. Its collar and cuffs effectively grip to hold the base layer in place. But, we should note that the piece is free from abrasion. To eliminate any chafing, Endura constructed the Baa Baa with flatlocked stitching and seams.
The Endura Baa Baa Short Sleeve Merino Base Layer is available in the colors Black, Green, and Red and in five sizes from Small to XX-Large.
