Designed for days away

Our first base layer to feature a fabric with a permanent antibacterial finish, the Brevet Base Layer is designed specifically for the rigours of long-distance riding. Constructed with silver coated ion yarn, the fabric inhibits the growth of bacteria to keep you fresh and odour free, day after day. With prototypes worn every day for two weeks at an unsupported, ultra-distance race through Europe in 2016, this base layer is proven to keep going as long as you do.

Featuring signature brevet stripes, the base layer is designed to be worn with or without a jersey and provides comfort in a wide range of temperatures. Sweat-wicking properties keep you cool on the bike whilst the quick-drying fabric makes it easy to wash and dry, ready for tomorrow’s ride. This base layer is an all-round addition that is most at home when you’re not.

Body sizing

Chest: measure underneath the armpits with the tape measure straight around.
Back Length: measure from the bottom of where your collar sits/base of the neck to the bottom of your spine.
Arm length: measure from where the seam would start at shoulder to bottom of the wrist.

What is the temperature range over which this Brevet remains comfortable. I ride mostly in Lagos where temperatures can run as high as 37 degrees centigrade and humidity as high as 100%

Asked by: fbadeji
Hi, as we all regulate temperature differently it is hard to advice on the temperature range for individuals and differing exertion levels will also affect its properties. Though as you mention 37 degrees, we do suggest a sleeveless base layer to start with. Should you need to exchange or refund, we have a 90 days return period for new/unused garments with tags and in saleable condition.

I am confused the description states..."Marrying the performance of our fast-wicking, quick-drying Pro Team base layers with the all-day comfort of soft merino" but the Fabric description is "82% polyester 18% elastane". Is there any merino ?

Asked by: Merino
Hi, there is no Merino and the quote is just likening the comfort (fit, stretch and antibacterial properties) of the fabric in comparison to our Classic Merino Baselayers. The fit is also comparable to our Classic Merino Base Layers.

Hi, How is the sizeing compared to proteam mesh baselayer? I am 187cm/80kg/chest 100cm and using the size L in the proteam mesh baselayer. I even have the merino baselayer but they are way to big for me in size L (and allmost to big in size M too) Thanks!

Hi, looking at sizing guide I am 41inch chest, I am a medium for base layer but large for brevet windblock jacket - is this correct ?
