Nothing beats fine merino wool for on, and off, bike wear. Merino keeps you warm in the cold and cool when it gets hot. It keeps you warm when it gets wet, and doesn’t retain odors like other “hi-tech” fabrics. It’s machine washable (when you eventually need to after multiple wearings) and durable. Easy peasy.
We’ve received some wool base layers by Woolpro that we are quite excited about. These base layers feature a soft fine weave that feels good on the skin. They call it 195g Warm Wool. It’s great as a single layer when it’s a bit cool and ideal for layering when it gets colder. Flat seams and side panels provide for a comfortable fit and a durable garment.
We currently have three styles:
The AGENA HI-VIS has a section on the upper sleeve to which you can attach a WoolPro Patchlight for increased visibility and safety. With Hi-Vis Merino and PatchLight, WoolPro introduces a NEW category of garment that integrates the benefits of Merino wool with lightweight LED technology. By applying a PatchLight to the safety band of WoolPro Hi-Vis Merino garments, wearers are provided with an unobtrusive safety device that allows one to be seen from nearly a mile away during low-light conditions including fog and dimly lit urban streets. $75. (The Patchlight is available separately, see below)
The AGENA is a crew neck long sleeve top that looks great on it’s own or layered. $70.
The ¼ zip SCOUT provides comfort, warmth and style for your life in the city and weekends in the mountains. The ¼ zip design with stand up collar keeps the draft out on colder days, and allows you to easily regulate your temp on the fly while reducing weight from a full zip. $85.
These are just the thing for cool spring rides. They are perfect alone or layered.
And oh, that Patchlight (up top on the AGENA HI-VIS) is a great accessory. It is a reflective patch with a red or a white LED (your choice) with hook fasteners on the back. It comes with a loop weave patch that can be fastened anywhere, so you don’t have to use it only on your sleeve. Put it on your bag, your back, your bike, anywhere. It weighs nothing. $10.
We are currently offering these in-store only. Mention this post when you come in for a 10% discount on Woolpro!
