Not so long ago, a long hot British summer meant two weeks of sunshine, possibly in early September; the rain relented, only to return in earnest and seemingly forever. Now, thanks to climate change, long hot summers are set to be precisely that, with each new summer likely to prove the hottest since, well, the previous year. In which case you’ll be needing this highly technical Pearson cycling base layer, designed to keep you cool and comfortable however high the mercury climbs. Made from an ultra-light, summer-weight polyester, the open-mesh construction allows for maximum heat release, while also reducing the contact area between skin and fabric. Winter base layers do their work covered up by jerseys and jackets.
Their summer cousins, as the pro peloton reliably demonstrates, are invariably exposed to the elements, with zips thrown open to let in cool air. Which is why this summer-edition base layer comes in a series of striking styles, including our refracted-headlights print and also a sumptuous, artistic interpretation of the Richmond Coat of Arms. A neutral ‘Sand’ colourway is available, too, and all three options feature the Pearson script logo at the neck.
A close fitting tailored garment. Distinct styling with the benefits of a windproof, breathable insulated front.
