Our Long Sleeve Baselayer is a pleasure to wear as a layer against the skin at both ends of the temperature spectrum. Because of the incredible breathability and temperature regulation of the MERINO + CARBON fabric, this piece will see you comfortable, warm and dry no matter what the season.
The beautifully soft, close fit of the garment allows for an optimum range of motion on the bike. The extended arm length accentuates this, ensuring that when you are on the drops there is no way through for cold air.
The versatility of the piece stems from the material. Carefully chosen for its natural thermo-regulation and enhanced wicking properties, the Merino blend actively lifts sweat away from the skin and transfers it to the outer layer of the fabric. If you really wanted to test the odour resistant properties of Merino, you could sport the piece over multiple rides for days on end. Your lungs and muscles may feel the strain, but the Baselayer will still smell, look and feel great.
Nigel Gaskin, ashmei ambassador and GB triathlete, adds: “I have worn Baselayers before and they have felt thick and heavy, which often meant I was drenched in sweat in no time at all. The ashmei Long Sleeve Baselayer is so thin you’d not notice you where wearing it, yet I was surprised how warm it kept me. I have also used it at the gym. Normally I’d not wear a Baselayer on its own because it can look like you are wearing PJ’s, but, as expected, the styling is spot on.”
