Baselayer compression for warm, better feeling muscles.
The advantages of muscle compression are no secret. We know how our bodies feel after a few hours in compression wear compared to the dark ages of old wives' remedies. So when it comes to staying warm and keeping your muscles comfortable during fall and winter rides, slip on the 2XU Long Sleeve Thermal Compression Top under your jersey to help prevent early muscle fatigue and stay warm.
Compression tops are made to hold close to the body like a second skin, but certain parts of the body need more compressing than others, which is why 2XU uses a graduated compression fit for the Thermal compression Top. A graduated fit puts compressive pressure throughout the base layer, focusing a higher amount of pressure at the extremities, gradually decreasing towards the heart. This style of fit increases circulation and reduces soreness, while also reducing vibrations.
Since muscle support is why you are wearing the Thermal Top, the highly compressive fabric adds support throughout your chest and arms, pinpointing support to your forearms, triceps, biceps, pectorals, and deltoids. The raglan sleeves eliminating seams over your shoulders, so your movements aren't constricted while you ride or nordic ski. 2XU uses soft, brushed, PWR FLEX fabric throughout the baselayer for optimal warmth. Moisture wicking elements throughout the material keep your skin dry while the PWR fabric regulates your core body temperature. So you can end your ride smelling fresh, the fabric has an antimicrobial treatment to stave off bacterial growth that causes odors.
The 2XU Long Sleeve Thermal Compression Top comes in Black and is available in four sizes, Small through X-Large.

2XU makes a large assortment of compression products and they all serve a great purpose. They increase circulation and help keep you warm. They've helped me limp through storms of tendinitis and fatigue from rock climbing. If you're gonna get a compression product i would highly recommend 2XU.

Ive been using the 2xu stuff for a few years now and love the quality. This top provides plenty of stability to the upper body with just the right amount of compression without feeling uncomfortable.Fairly warm too...perfect as a base layer under a wind proof jacket on a chilly day. highly recommended.
Stop kicking tires
This is my go-to top for anything below 60F biking, and also use it for my ONLY underlayer while skiing and touring, really only time I need something else on is when its below 30F.
I'm 6' 175lbs 34" waist 39" chest and M fits me perfect. The recovery is great, the wicking is decent for how much warmth it has.
