Add some power to your ride.
The key to a balanced cycling wardrobe is versatility. After all, temperature regulation and moisture management are just as critical in the summer as in the winter. So, whether you're prepping for a day in the heat or for a day in the crisp fall air, layering your kit around the versatile Hincapie Sportswear PowerCore Flex Base Layer is a good idea.
Why do you need a base layer in the summer? Well, regardless of where the mercury lies, if your skin is covered with a jersey soaked in sweat, its natural ability to regulate temperature is inhibited. Hincapie's PowerCore FlexTek fabric utilizes a recycled polyester stretch fiber weave with hollow "cores" that deftly wick the moisture away from the skin. As a result, you remain dry over the long haul and during particularly hard exertion, and when it comes to winter, this becomes even more important. Surely, we're all familiar with the winter saying that "sweat is death." Staying dry is the key to keeping warm, or keeping cool, depending on whether you're layering with a jersey or a jacket. The fabric's natural quick-drying nature effectively regulates your body temperature while also resisting odor.
The close fit of the base layer is perfect wearing under a jersey, skin suit, or jacket. An elongated body tucks comfortably inside your bibs or tights, while comfort and fit are further increased through the use of flatlock seams throughout the construction.
The Hincapie Sportswear PowerCore Flex Base Layer is available in the color White and in six sizes from Small to XX-Large.
