New Road, traditional material.
Though it's marketed under Giro's New Road label, the Racer Base Layer pays homage to merino wool, the classic cycling material, by updating it with a synthetic blend for today's cycling enthusiast. The blend uses a touch of polyester to let the wool stretch and return to form even as the racerback cut limits the need to do so. It's also gentle on your skin, presenting a buttery-soft, jersey touch for comfort in the saddle and out.

My wife got this to use as an extra layer on cold days of skiing and biking. She says it fits well and definitely provides that added layer of warmth she was looking for.
