The Base layer, never seen but much appreciated, especially when it delivers the performance of the new BraveIT G65.
When the G65 test samples arrived in the office the timing couldn't have been better, the seasons were changing and the undergarment wardrobe was in need of a revamp! The appearance was like something out of procycling, brilliant white and a mesh weave that looked like it could breathe underwater.
The feel is somewhat of a second skin and the name, G65 has a true meaning, when placed on the digital scales the numbers didn't lie with the medium coming it right on the mark at just 65g! Made from genuine Coolmax the G65 wicks moisture from the skin instantly and transports it through to the jersey for evaporation, giving the wearer an incredible level of comfort regardless of the climate. On warmer rides it has definitely been more comfortable to layer with the G65, the lightweight feel and breathe ability has been a real ride enhancer. On cooler mornings the extra skin like layering has added that little bit extra to keep the body temperature feeling perfect.
Two months on and the fit is like new and the white is still like those dental ads on television, I'm much impressed on the benefits of a performance base layer, and was even more so when the rrp was relayed to be just under $40.
