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.

Key features:

  • 100% merino (18.9 micron)
  • Female-specific cut
  • V-neck
  • Flatlock seams
  • Highly breathable
  • High wicking
  • Quick drying

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 Warm +++ So good I purchased a second longsleeve base layer. Warm enough for cold Melbourne mornings (0-5 degrees). Not too long. Washes well.

Does anyone know the length of this base layer from the neck to the bottom hem?

Asked by: salfry123
The length does vary based upon the different sizes but this garments bottom hem does fall to the hips.
