As incredible as it may seem you can feel cooler on your ride when you wear the Base Layer Zero Mesh than you would just wearing a jersey with no base layer. That’s because we have exploited the possibilities of cutting-edge Karl Mayer Seamless knitting machines to develop a summer cycling base layer that moves with you without any friction or pressure points while it wicks and evaporates sweat from your skin. The secret of the Karl Mayer machine is its ability to construct multiple tubes without any seams. Most seamless base layers still nevertheless are technologically obliged to be sewn around the armholes, for example. The removal of all seams, except for two short joining stitches at the shoulders, increases the comfort of as tight-fitting a garment as a base layer. Perhaps more impressive than the moisture wicking breathability, the material, though super lightweight mesh, is also extremely durable. That’s because the Karl Mayer machines can develop rip-proof mesh. The fact the cycling base layer is unhemmed ensures that it remains very low profile when you tuck it into your bibs, though you won’t have to worry about unraveling in the wash thanks to the durable design. The mesh pattern of the knit is deployed in various densities, along with open-mesh sections, mapping the thermal requirements and regional sweat rates of an athlete’s body. Not only does this allow for the best rider comfort and protection, it also allows for the volume of the product to be significantly reduced where possible. The result is a startlingly pure and minimal summer cycling sleeveless base layer. Weighing just 51g , the Zero Mesh Base Layer is best used above 26°C. Available in several color options that pair well with the Q36.5 Jersey lineup.
