Altura Element S/S base layer review

High wicking undergarment

BikeRadar score4/5

This Coolmax base layer shifts sweat away from your body well to keep you dry and comfortable when you crank up your effort.

It’s cut slim and is stretchy enough to always sit right next to your skin without any tightness, while the lightweight, open-mesh weave allows air to flow through freely.

It doesn’t get very heavy with moisture, and if it does get damp it dries out really quickly. Ideal for summer riding when you want a base layer that wicks rather than insulates, it’s also available in a sleeveless version for £21.99.
