Against the grain.
While it may seem counter-intuitive to add layers on a hot ride, the Gore Bike Wear Women’s Base Layer Singlet is designed to pull moisture away from your skin on hot days, so it actually keeps you cooler than a jersey alone. It also prevents chafing from a wet jersey or from bib straps, so you’re comfortable in the saddle for a longer time. The stretchy elastane and polypropylene blend fits like a second skin without limiting your range of motion. Flatlock seams hold everything together, again, to eliminate chafing and hot spots, and the drop tail design keeps you covered, even while you’re in the hunched pedal position.

I love it!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Extra small
I love this base layer! I wear it on almost every ride. I got it in XS and it fits me perfectly. If you got a skinny waist it's perfect in XS! As a base layer it should be next to the skin and I am super happy with it.

I really like the weight of this base layer. It's very light and soft and I think will keep me comfortable and dry when the weather is cool and I want something snug-fitting against my skin. This product is really snug-fitting, however, and though the size chart indicated I would easily fit into an XS, I am exchanging it for a S. I was able to get the XS on without difficulty but it was really snug in the rib cage area and I felt it restricted my breathing.
