Description

Details

A beautifully made Merino base layer for all your road, spinning and everyday wear needs.  A perfectly pretty under garment which will not only make you look and feel great, but will perform fantastically too.  You can even wear it on its own too - we're sure you will do, its super soft touch is too lovely not to.

Svelte have used a fine Merino wool to create a stunning base that will perform technically whilst you cycle.  Your skin will feel caressed while the Merino sets to work reacting to your body temperature - Merino is cool when hot and warm when not.  It also absorbs odours from sweat, which are then released during washing, so you can stay dry and comfortable all day!

The length at the rear of the base is super long, perfect in fact!  You can be sure it'll keep you fully covered when in the riding position.

Ideal for:

  • All year round cycling.
  • Wearing underneath a cycling jersey to absorb sweat.
  • Keeping you cool when hot and warm when not.

Who's Behind It?

Svelte was born and bred in London, where founder Tom Barber and the team are still based. As a young project, they've ensured from Day 1 that they draw on the UK's rich cycling heritage, whilst infusing it with a distinctly 21st century twist. Their aim is to 'forge the connection between the rider and the bike itself'. Their designs 'subtly, yet exquisitely, convey the beautiful unity of cycling, elegance and lifestyle'.

These are big aims, but from the outset it's hard to argue that they are indeed creating an 'elegantly versatile connection between the bicycle and the clothing that rides it'. They  appeal equally to hardened road cyclists looking for something distinctive and authentic just as much weekend potterers looking for the same. Their attention to detail belies their relative recent launch. And their insistence on getting the fit just right is exceptional.

And on top of all that, they source their materials ethically and manufacture whenever possible in London.

So, a small, authentic, passionate company producing gear that looks great both on and off the bike, and performs equally well. It wasn't a hard decision for us to make friends with Svelte!
