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.

Reviews:

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep it warm! Living in South Texas gives me little opportunity to dress warmly while cycling, but this base layer has seen a few days of keeping me perfect in the below 40 degrees I've had to ride in (go ahead, be jealous). Comfortable, perfect fit over my base layer, under my jersey; washes well-no stinky pit smell:-). Purchased the small for my 5'2" 120 frame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fabric, lovely top This is a super functional base layer - it is very tight so I ended up going up a size so I could wear it as a day-to-day top without giving everyone too much of an eyeful. Shame that the label is on the outside though - I will end up picking it off I think... would be nice if the V neck was a little deeper as well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 4th rapha merino baselayer... ...because I practically live in them. Both on the bike and off, these baselayers are soft, warm, good colours and long lasting. They wash well too. My only request would be for a choice of neckline. Either a lower V-neck for ladies, or a round neck perhaps?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, wicking and wonderful! I bought this to wear under my long sleeved winter jersey so I chose the short sleeved version to avoid bulky arms. It is superb in fit and quality, washes without shrinking and feels good even when I am sweaty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fabulous base layer I shouldn't say this, but I have now work this base layer for 5 hard rides, and it still doesn't smell - miraculous! I'll have to get more, it will pay back in my washing bill in no time
