Pick of the week, nice and warm in the cold.

klier in flandersIride Seamless base layerThanks to new state-of-the art seamless knitting technology and a moisture-wicking blend of polypropylene, nylon, and lycra, the IRIDE SEAMLESS LONG-SLEEVE BASE LAYER is our softest and most comfortable base layer to date.

Polypropylene is a popular choice for performance base layers as the fabric’s fibers quickly transport moisture away from your skin. Once the moisture has reached this point, the Iride’s nylon layer takes over, transferring the moisture outward to the surface of the garment to evaporate there, keeping you warm and dry.

An extra little feature, a soft thumbs loop holds the sleeves in place, insulating the skin between your jacket and glove. Cool!

Quindici SocksMade from 100% merino wool, the QUINDICI SOFT SOCKS are the ideal choice for long winter rides in cold and windy conditions. With its softness, merino wool keeps your feet warm and comfortable while letting moisture evaporate.

This breathability is especially important for cyclists, as winter months often mean cramming socks into shoes and shoes into booties. Without a means by which moisture can escape, your feet become colder faster, wool socks are an important cold-weather companion. The nice 15cm cuff also offer outstanding angle coverage.
