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.

I’m using large for Jersey? What size do I use for base layer? Do I go for medium or large? But I want my base layer tight
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 ?
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!
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%
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 ?
Thank you for your request. We’ll contact you when your Brevet Base Layer is available.
