dhb Ladies Sleeveless Corefit Base layer


There is no doubt that it is getting colder and it’s time to think about wrapping up to keep warm on those winter rides. Layering is essential to keeping warm but this requires a hard working base layer, with great wicking ability next to your skin. 


dhb Ladies Sleeveless Corefit Base layer



The dhb Ladies Sleeveless Corefit base layer is a great option and it is excellent value for money too.  It is made from 59% treated polyester and 41% viscose which helps this base layer wick away sweat, reducing chill in colder temperatures. The fabric is a Bamboo-Charcoal-Polyester composition which gives natural odour control and has antibacterial properties as well.


The seams are all flat-lock stitched for comfort and the fibres have been pre washed, a luxury you can feel immediately you put the base layer on - it is surprisingly soft on your skin and light too.  The cut is comfortably fitted without being tight, classed as a ‘relaxed fit’ by dhb, but what that really means is there is no tugging or pulling and definitely no irritating riding up when you are on the bike.


Overall it is longer than other base layers, designed to sit lower on your hips.  This took a bit of getting used to but the advantages soon become obvious when we were testing it out on the bike in cooler temperatures.  Essentially, once it has been tuck into other layers, it stays put and keeps your lower back covered and warm.


It is a simple design with two small dhb reflective logos, one on the front chest and the other centrally on the back and you can choose plain black or red.


The dhb Ladies sleeveless corefit baselayer represents a very good value for money. It is a base layer that can be combined with other layers on the bike in colder temperatures or used on its own during indoor spinning, turbo sessions or in the gym.
