A base layer is a cycling kit must-have, especially a base layer as beautiful as this one. Combine with your favourite jersey and voila! A comfortable, soft feel and active performance base.
The Queen of the Mountains Base Layer is made of a super soft four-way fabric, to give you the movement you need whilst riding. What's more, is the race back shape! Shoulders can move freely, making alternating from hoods to drops smooth and less restricted. Lovely jubbly.
Tiny holes in the mesh fabric help to regulate your body temperature and keep you dry. It performs best when worn under a jersey - perspiration can then move from one layer to the next, speeding up the drying process. What's not to love?
Queen of the Mountains garments are designed to be snug and to hug the contours of your body, so technically they perform. See the guide below for sizing.
- Soft polyester mesh fabric (60g/m)
- 4-way stretch
- Fast sweat evaporation
- Regulates temperature
- Race back shape - allows for greater movement
- Fold easily into a jersey back pocket
- NO scratchy labels
- Designed in London, made in Italy
Designed to be worn under a cycling jersey, to promote a dry, sweat-free ride.
Dreamed in the mountains, designed in London, created in Italy.
The dream started whilst on a 1000km charity ride from Geneva to Cannes over the French Alps. Alicia Bamford, a keen cyclist, triathlete and fond Iron Man participant (5 times completed), founder of Queen of the Mountains, envisaged a brand where women would be inspired and empowered to ride. With a passion for cycling, in particular the mountains, Alicia created Queen of the Mountains.
Alicia wanted more women to be able to experience that sense of achievement and freedom you can get from the bike. At the beginning of 2015 Alicia and Katy (a fellow cyclist and Creative designer) set their minds to launching a women's brand that did just that.
Queen of the Mountains want to support young girls and women, coming into the sport later in life, continue cycling and promote confidence and and inspiration to ride. They're doing a brilliant job so far, producing high quality cycling clothing for women, running sponsorship programmes and local training rides too - making opportunities happen, so more and more women can get together and ride, feeling free, confident and beautiful.
We were massively wowed by the results and fully support Queen of the Mountains to fulfil their dream for many years to come...
"The physical and mental challenge of these magnificent climbs, the sense of achievement you feel as you can finally see the summit is at the heart of our brand" Alicia Bamford.

Couldn't be happier!Review by Margaret Jones
Couldn't be happier !!! REALLY like this base layer - absolutely does what it says on the tin - and I now wish I'd got two!
I like the higher front neckline which was one of the features that particularly attracted me to this base layer (helps save getting burnt chest when loosening top layers for air when HOT !).
Wouldn't mind if you were thinking of doing this in other colours !? (grey/navy/black?)
