Moisture is drawn away from the body to evaporate on the outer surface of the garment.
Why do you need a base layer? Well, apart from looking much cooler than a t-shirt, a functional base layer is an essential bit of kit for a couple of reasons:
1. Use it for extra insulation under a jersey when it's slightly too cold for a jersey alone but not cold enough for a jacket.
2. Wear a base layer on its own when training inside or at the gym. Its moisture-controlling properties means that even if you get a sweat on you’ll stay more focused, as the fabric has a sweat-wicking effect which aids cooling.
Our base layers have a moderately opaque front panel and a mesh rear. The mesh rear provides insulation when worn under a jersey by trapping air, but will also aid cooling when worn on its own by allowing body heat to escape more easily.
Available inblack & white.

In times like these it’s the little choices we make that can affect life on a global scale. At Sigr, located way up in the north of Sweden, everything we do is centred around two things: equality and our planet.
We always try to make choices that reduce the impact on this beautiful, inspirational planet we call home. We use 100% digital prototyping and 100% recycled fabric wherever possible. We create sustainable nordic designs with a focus on longevity rather than the changeable whims of fashion. Don't get us wrong - we like making gear that looks great. But it’s gear that will last. Season after season.
Equality in cycling is something we also passionately believe in. Whether it's providing the same designs for men and women or sponsoring the Swedish Tour - a race through Sweden that’s more inclusive than many other big name races we could mention.
We believe cycling is just awesome. For you, for us and for the environment. So let's saddle up and hit the open roads together.
