Winter Gruppetto Base Layer
A remarkable merino wool base layer to keep warm when it is cold and wick moisture efficiently.
Made with a great quality merino wool, made in Italy, the Gruppetto base layer transfers the moisture from the skin to regulate the body temperature. The fabric is naturally anti-bacterial and odour resistant, it will keep you warm and dry, whatever the weather and the intensity of the effort. It feels good inside the Gruppetto.
Experienced cyclists know it, the base layer is an essential part of the outfit. In summer and in winter, it is versatile enough to be worn when during the changing pace of your efforts or in variable weather conditions.
To design the Gruppetto base layer respecting Mercier quality standards, we have selected a material made of 75% remarkable merino wool, made in Italy. Indeed, this natural fibre offers the best thermal and moisture wicking properties. It efficiently wicks the moisture away from the skin to keep you dry and warm. In addition, merino wool is naturally anti-bacterial and odour resistant. The Gruppetto base layer is soft on the skin and is not itchy.
As a nod to the outfit worn by racing cyclists in the 1960s, a zip will allow you to open the base layer down a third of the chest for an adapted ventilation. The Mercier logo is embroidered on the chest and a crown placed on the sleeve testifies of Mercier’s will to offer products of an exceptional quality. Indeed, Gruppetto is handmade in Italy by a family business which possesses all the savoir-faire to work a material as noble as merino wool.
