In 2010, before setting up VeloVixen, we cycled over 10,000km through the Americas. We wore exclusively Icebreaker merino tops, and - hand on heart - can say there's nothing in VeloVixen's range we've tested harder or been more impressed by. Merino is 100% natural, it helps keep you warm in the cold and vice versa, and you can wash it endlessly without it losing its wonderful colours or shape. It dries fast and you can wear it for days on end without it getting smelly. It is truly miraculous stuff.
This model is ideal either as a base layer or to wear on top with pride. Its 200 weight merino is roughly the weight of a cotton t-shirt, but so much more adaptable and comfortable for day to day use. You'll struggle to find a more useful piece of clothing. It comes from the merino flocks of New Zealand's Southern Alps. It's not the cheapest top around, but - believe us - you won't regret it. In this case, you really do get what you pay for.
