High-performance cycling base layer cut for women riders
Rapha base layers are made from the highest grade of New Zealand merino wool. The fabric is extremely comfortable, wicks moisture superbly and is naturally breathable and odour resistant. The Women’s Short Sleeve Base Layer has been cut specifically for a female shape, with a neat, set-in v-neck that has a finer binding than the men’s version. Other features include set-in sleeves and flat lock stitching, designed to ensure the fabric won’t chafe and to eliminate rubbing from bib shorts and bag straps.
Given the versatility and the non-take-off-ability of the Rapha Women’s Sleeveless Base Layer, the price tag represents pretty good value. Merino is never cheap, and this garment certainly performs better than looser or scratchier merino products that have a slightly lower price point.
