At a Glance

This top is literally dripping with technology to stop you from dripping with sweat! High-end materials wick sweat away from the body and at the same time offer insulation to keep you warm. The Path features a half zip, fitted cuffs and a pocket on the back for stashing keys and cash, even a mobile phone. It uses a slim fit and flat lock seams to ensure the garment stays close to your body and remains comfortable on long rides.

On the Trail

It can be worn on it’s own on warmer days, or as a base or mid layer on colder days which makes it very versatile. The top is really light and the soft fabric feels great when the top is worn as a base layer. On a long ride it performed very well keeping us dry and drawing the moisture away from the body. Coupled with a snug base layer the top performs excellently as a mid layer and on a hard ride you could easily just wear the two tops. Come spring we can see this being worn quite a bit as a standalone top.

Overall

A high tech versatile top that is happy as a base or a mid layer and come the warmer weather will be perfect on it’s own. The half zip makes it easy to dump excess heat when it builds up.

His first mountain bike was a Trek 820, which he bought in 1990. It didn’t take him long to earn himself a trip to the hospital on it, and he’s never looked back since. These days he’s keeping it rubber side down, riding locally and overseas as much as possible.
