Sometimes the opportunity to ride presents itself in chillier temps. So when Polartec shared their new baselayer material, Power Wool, we decided to utilize this amazing material in our first long-sleeve base layer.
The bi-component knit construction of Polartec Power Wool uses a different yarn on either side of the fabric, creating the optimal hybrid for athletic endeavors and maximal comfort. Ultra-fine Merino wool next to the skin provides warmth even when wet; highly breathable, wool excels at moving moisture in a vapor state.
The outer synthetic fabric ensures perspiration dries quickly and adds durability. Temperature regulating Polartec Power Wool can comfortably be worn in any weather. The versatile fabric makes this a piece that can be worn alone or as a baselayer while mountain biking or during any athletic pursuit.
"Kitsbow is well known for quality cycling apparel, and the Power Wool base layer is a stylish home run (although it comes at no small price). It features a 3-snap henley style collar, merino wool/polyester blend for durability and odor control, and is flat stitched to keep chaffing and irritation at bay. The blend of fibers is woven so that the wool is next to skin, and the polyester layer is on the outside of the garment where it evaporates off more readily. It's a sweet shirt that's stylish enough to head to the bar with after a ride and not look like a dweeb or knock anyone over with B.O. thanks to the odor control of the Merino fibers."
"For the discerning mountain biker, check out Kitsbow’s Power Wool base layer. Kitsbow is a respected mountain bike apparel company that values style along with function. The Power Wool base layer will keep your outdoorsman warm and dry in a variety of conditions."
"Merino on the inside of this top bumps up the warmth on chilly days, and the fabric on the face spirits away moisture. It’s also insulating, despite the thin-as-a-T-shirt feel. The cut is a touch large, so size down if you plan on layering."
