The first day you step outside to find the air feeling definitively warmer than you've felt in months, you know you have to get out on the bike. As much as you want to grab your favorite summer kit and head out freely into the sun, the few lingering snowbanks and windy stretches of road you know you'll encounter give you pause. Layering the Craft men's Active Extreme 2.0 Crewneck underneath a jersey makes a palatable compromise: you can still shed the thermal, windproof outer layers, while giving your core a barrier against spring's unpredictable breezes.
Craft arranges two types of polyester fibers throughout the jersey to lend it a next-to-skin fit that will follow your body movements in the saddle and facilitate rapid moisture transfer away from your skin. The stretchy fabric insulates while pulling sweat away, helping you maintain a consistent, regulated body temperature as you transition into warmer weather than you've been accustomed to. According to Craft, the Active Extreme 2.0 functions capably in temperatures ranging from -10 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
