Performance without compromise, from a lightweight, seamless base layer

This is Q36.5's lightest base layer, ideal use in warmer conditions. It might seem counter-intuitive to use a base layer in warm weather, but their snug fit and high-wicking fabric are extremely effective at maintaining comfort without overheating.

No-one enjoys that clammy feeling when putting the hammer down in hot weather, and it can be especially unpleasant on descents when even on the warmest days the wind can cause a chill. This is where an open-weave, light base later comes into it's own.

By using cutting-edge "Karl Mayer" seamless knitting machines, Q36.5 have come up with a unique new high-tech approach to the traditional base layer.

Even compared to other high performance seamless base layers there are a number of advantages to this new method of construction:

- Significantly greater elasticity and lower resistance to movement in all directions, thanks to the Karl Mayer machine's ability to construct multiple tubes without any seams (most 'sleeveless' base layers still require stitching sewn around the armhole, for example).

The removal of all seams, with the exception of two short joining stitches at the shoulders, greatly increases the comfort of a garment as tight-fitting as a base layer.

- A much tougher lightweight material, since unlike other seamless machines Karl Mayer machines are able to develop a true rip-proof mesh. The base layer's fabric is left un-hemmed, to further remove stitching from the garment.

The 'honey-comb' pattern of the knit is deployed in various different densities, along with open-mesh sections as required, to suit the thermal requirements and differing sweat rates of an athlete's body. Not only does this give the maximum degree of comfort and protection, it also allows for the weight of the product to be significantly reduced where possible.

The result is a startlingly pure and minimal base layer. Weight is just 75g, despite the low weight being a result of the design, not an objective in itself.
