What makes merino wool so good?
Merino wool is the ideal material for base layers. It’s natural fibres are perfect for temperature regulation, whilst it can absorb up to 35% of its weight in moisture without feeling wet to touch. Perfect for damp days or wicking sweat! Merino is also naturally antibacterial, so you can wear it mile after mile, ride after ride whilst still feeling fresh. This means that when its blended with polyester it creates a lightweight, comfortable material that can handle virtually all riding conditions.
