Cycling creates unique challenges. Ride type, changing climate conditions, wind speed, and rider exertion intensity all contribute for the need to select the right combination of garments. Tech Layering is Shimano Fusion Concept's solution for selecting the right combination for the task.
TECH LAYERING SOLUTIONS:
L1 BASE LAYER
Transports moisture away from the skin to maintain core body heat by enabling perspiration to evaporate, or pass through to the next layer.
L2 MID LAYER
This dual-purpose layer provides warmth and pulls moisture away from the base layer while keeping water and wind from getting in.
L3 OUTER LAYER
Delivers protection against water splash, rain, wind, and cold to help maintain the ideal core body temperature for maximum performance output.
TECH LAYERING SYSTEM
On select garments, an innovative combination of an L2 performance fleece plus an L3 wind/water resistant outer layer delivers lightweight insulated comfort with more freedom of movement and flexibility to accommodate changing exertion intensity and climate conditions. Other garments, like our cold weather tights and gloves, utilize 3-layer fabric and construction technologies that combine the performance features of L1, L2, and L3 into one high- performance solution.
