New Product Discovery: Specialized Base Layer

Specialized’s Base Layer

Putting on an extra layer when the thermometer’s rising might seem counterintuitive, but a proper base layer, like the Short Sleeve Base Layer, can make a big difference in the heat. Wearing a lightweight base layer can help wick sweat away from the body, generating an even greater cooling effect. This is all due to the wicking properties of Specialized’s  VaporRize mesh fabric.


  • VaporRize™ mesh fabrics are engineered to rapidly wick moisture away from the skin, keeping you cool, dry, and comfortable in any condition.
  • A cycling-specific fit and construction complement your movements in the saddle, while also allowing ample room for layering and eliminating bulk.
  • Soft puff stitching gets rid of chafing by greatly reducing the number of seams.
  • Form-fit closely and precisely conforms to the curves of the body.
  • Price $50
