We're going to share a little secret with you -- layering amounts to warmth. But, we're not talking about taking the Louis Garneau Massimo jacket and throwing on your old, ratty Alma Mater sweatshirt. No. In the evolution of your winter cycling wardrobe, the base layer is the missing link, even more specifically, the Louis Garneau Spring Short Sleeve Base Layer. Garneau's Sprint base layer plays a host of roles, with the first and foremost going to thermo-regulation. This is achievable through its breathable, Supra Filo fabric construction. Basically, the fabric efficiently pulls moisture away from the skin in order to keep you dry. And when its complimented by a jacket like the Massimo, this assists in maintaining a consistent insulation layer. So, the more that your core temperature rises, the better that the Sprint works at keeping you comfortable. Another added benefit of the Sprint is its soft-to-the-touch, flatlock seam design. When you think about it, winter riding calls for bib tights, a jersey, and a jacket. So, its imperative that you have a buffer like the Sprint between the weighted seams of your outerwear and your skin. And to fill this roll, the surface of the fabric is lightweight and non-abrasive. Additionally, the flatlock seams eliminate the typical chafing in high-articulation areas by maintaining a low-profile, non-poignant construction. The Louis Garneau Spring Short Sleeve Base Layer is available in the color White and in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large.
