It doesn't matter if you're wearing a jacket, a vest, a long sleeve jersey, or a balloon hat on your head. If you're riding in the cold of winter, you need a base layer. The reasons are simple, but the selection can be tricky. That is, until you've had the option of wearing the Capo Torino Long Sleeve Base Layer.
The Torino base layer is made from Capo's Stretto fabric. This material bases its composition off of a soft-blend polyester filament. Constructed in a circular knit with vertical, ribbed channels, the fabric effectively warms the body while pulling sweat away from the skin. The result is comfortable level of dryness, while the Torino consistently regulates the internal temperature. Why is staying dry important? Let's conduct a little experiment. Blow on the back of your hand. Now wet it, and blow on it again. Colder right? Now imagine that the moisture on it was the same amount that you generate from an hour in Zone Two, and that the blowing air is a 45mph descent instead. Thankfully, the Torino eliminates this effect down to temperatures as low as 35 degrees -- dry, warm, and comfortable.
The Capo Torino Long Sleeve Base Layer is available in the color Black and in five sizes from Small to XX-Large. This base layer has been made in the USA.
