An ideal cycling garment for cool or unpredictable conditions is the new B2 long-sleeve base-layer released by Bontrager for 2012. This lightweight undershirt is built from a highly breathable, quick-dry thermal knit material that makes it easier to transfer moisture as compared to just a jersey.

Without the unnecessary bulky layering, the close-fitting design and smooth exterior of the B2 Light Thermal BaseLayer provides its user a perfect layering. Moreover, chafing is eliminated, thanks to its flatlock stitching.

Very smooth and soft, the thermal regulating fabric of the 2012 Bontrager B2 Light Thermal Base-Layer fits like a second skin. Maximum comfort is achieved through the quick-drying feel offered by outstanding vapor permeability. This base-layer is ideal for all types of rides.
