One reason that it’s more difficult to get out and ride during the winter months is that it’s more difficult for your body to maintain an ideal temperature. This increases fatigue and makes riding more strenuous. The Gore bike Wear Functional thermo Base Layer helps your body maintain that temperature more efficiently to make the miles slide by more easily.
The key performance function of the Thermo Base Layer is moisture management. Your body has a much more difficult time regulating its temperature when your skin is wet. The Thermo Base Layer fits like a second skin to increase moisture-management efficiency. The combination of an internal hydrophobic fabric (100% polyester)with an external hydrophilic fabric (100% polyester) pulls moisture away from your body to keep your skin dry and aid in temperature regulation.
Gore designed the Thermo Base Layer with as few seams as possible, since they cause irritation. Where seams were necessary it used flatlock seams, which cause less chafing than the traditional variety. Finally, Gore designed the WS Thermo with an extra long back to give you full coverage in the seated position.
