The foundation for summer.
As you take inventory of kit while anticipating a late spring buildup of mileage in preparation for a busy summer, your baselayers should be an area to which you devote considerable attention. If your warm-weather baselayer has started to show its age after dutifully whisking moisture away from your skin for thousands of miles, you'll be able to accept its retirement far easier if you have De Marchi's Ultraleggera Base Layer waiting in the wings, eager to head out on a ride.
Made with an airy microfiber mesh, the Ultraleggera is adept at wicking moisture away from your skin during warm weather, acting quickly to transfer sweat to the surface of your jersey where it can evaporate. According to De Marchi, it functions best at temperatures ranging from the mid-60s to the high-70s in degrees Fahrenheit, and its smooth, flatlock seaming and next-to-skin fit allow you to forget you're wearing it under your jersey.
