More On The Construction:
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
- 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 'honeycomb' 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 hard-wearing, soft-feeling, well-insulating base
layer. Weight is just 108g, despite the low weight being a
side-effect of the design, not an objective in itself.
