Pedal Through, by first-time film director and new mountain biker Analise. Follow her journey of self-healing and growth during a week-long bikepacking adventure through the Oregon backcountry.
In sleeveless and long sleeve options, The Luxe Cropped Base is the ultimate layer for staying cool and comfortable on rides all year round. On hot summer days, sweat is whisked off of the skin to keep you dry. In cooler weather, less sweat means no damp fabrics that make you feel colder. What we love most is the silk-like feeling that hugs the body and makes any kit combo feel luxurious.

Our goal was to design a base layer that felt silky against the body and eliminated unnecessary bulk under bibs and short. The Luxe Cropped Base has been designed to slip seamlessly into bottom layers, in both a sleeveless and long sleeve version.
Inside tip: the long sleeve style is the perfect layering piece to transition your Summerweight Jersey into fall and winter!
- Super soft, silk-like Better Than Skin fabric is designed to wick moisture away from the skin for a cooling, quick-drying effect.
- High-gauge for excellent compression and abrasion resistance.
- Flattering, cropped cut hits just below the natural waist to avoid bunching and scrunching when tucked into compressive bottom layers like bib shorts and cycling pants.
- Elegant center logo provides high-power visibility on the darkest nights, but a subtle and stealth appearance during the day.
- Fantastic fit with 4-Way stretch developed to hug curvier figures.
- UPF 50+ Sun Protection
- The Long Sleeve Base sleeves are tailored to provide perfect coverage in riding position.

To get the longest life out of your garment, we recommend washing in cold water with a mild detergent and hanging it to dry.
Ordering two sizes to compare is a great way to ensure the perfect fit. Check out our super easy Return Policy and Happiness Guarantee!
For cycling bibs and shorts, the HIP MEASUREMENT is the most crucial factor. Measure around the WIDEST POINT of the hips/bum. If you are between sizes or petite (5'3" or under), we recommend SIZING DOWN for a compressive fit. A snug fit is crucial to performance. Check out our FIT GUIDE for more detailed instructions, or pop your measurements into the fit calculator above for a personalized recommendation! (Please note, the fit guide requires chest, waist and hip measurements.)
I love this base layer. It’s super soft! It wicks away the sweat and does not feel too warm under your cycling jersey. I would definitely buy another!
fabulous base layer. I like the sleeveless options so there's no chafing. I'm 5'8", 156 lbs and I wear a M.
Love the material and cropped length, but the sleeves are way too long.
I liked the color and fabric of this base layer, unfortunately the cut did not work for me - the torso was way too short and the sleeves were too long.
The angled cuffs around the waist are fantastic and fit so beautifully, however, I've found the torso length is shorter than the sleeveless version? I have both and adore them, the fabric is slinky, featherweight, and lovely. I just wish the cropped length was a tiny bit longer, they keep popping out of the back of my bibs, which isn't ideal in freezing weather.
