Sub Zero Factor 1 Plus Unisex Long Sleeve Seamless Cycling Thermal Base Layer Tops are snug fitting and have plenty of stretch (100%) which makes them feel as comfortable as a second skin and allows for a close comfortable fit for most body shapes.
The very long seamless body has been designed so that your lower back is not exposed when you bend over your bike frame when cycling. Two pockets on the back of the top sit neatly on the small of your back and will hold a wide variety of cycling kit. The openings of the pockets also have reflective trim for increased viability on the roads when it starts to get dark.
The cycle top has four distinct knitting structures to help control perspiration, support muscle groups and to add extra insulation. The air flow mesh zones underneath the arms and down the middle of the back quickly transport moisture away from the skin to the fabric surface for evaporation. The 3D waffle design in the middle of the chest provides extra insulation as well as a large surface area for removing perspiration. The larger 3D pattern above the waffle design adds insulation as well as providing support and stability through its unique egg carton knit. Rib zones on the sleeves and down the side of the body also add extra muscle support.
The stand-up double thickness turtle neck features a 22cm / 8 inch lightweight zip to allow aeration and extra venting. When fully zipped up the puller is housed in a fabric chin guard to stop any irritation or rubbing of the throat and chin. On the reverse of the zip there is a double thickness fabric baffle to help reduce wind penetration and to provide a soft finish next to the skin.
The raglan sleeve design removes the shoulder seam and places it lower on the chest and back. These seams are constructed using flat seam technology to reduce any rubbing and to provide a close fit. The benefit of not having a shoulder seam is that it allows greater movement of the arms and allows for a much more comfortable cycling position over the handlebars. Thumb loops close to the sleeve cuffs allows the option of covering your knuckles and palms with the sleeve in colder weather.
