Kepler Velo Long Sleeve [Womens] 
Fast drying, comfortable, odour resistant. This technical multi activity 1/4 zip merino jersey is designed to be worn next-to-the-skin
100% genuine New Zealand merino wool makes our Kepler Velo long-sleeve all-season top for long days out.
Kepler Velo has an athletic cut making it a modern multi-activity top. It is our take on the lightweight baselayer top that is a staple piece of most peoples layering systems. Kepler fits right in there with its excellent performance over a vast range of conditions. Quite simply it is a garment that does many things really rather well.
Breathable, wicking, fast drying and famously odour resistant, merino can be worn in the hot, in the cold, in the wet and in the dry. For all round comfort over multi-day riding adventures merino is our baselayer of choice.
The full-length sleeves give sun protection all the way along your arms, the long front zip is great for venting - but ladies be warned; you may feel over exposed if you forgot to put your sports bra underneath! Kepler is designed to be worn snug, but doesn’t need to be so skin tight that you feel self conscious in the pub at the end of the day.
The benefits of Merino
Kepler is made using only the finest sustainably sourced non-mulesed New Zealand merino.
Merino wool is a natural material with properties that make it ideal for the changeable conditions you will experience during mountain activities, maybe that’s why New Zealand Merino sheep look so content strutting around their hillsides.
When you are on a mission you don’t want to be changing your layers with every turn in the weather. When it is cold Merino keeps you warm by trapping small pockets of air within its fibres. When its warm the same fibres will help to whisk moisture away from your skin so it can evaporate back into the water cycle! If you have been trapped in your garment for several days the antibacterial properties of a chemical called lanolin will help you stop ponging.
Merino baselayer won’t make you fitter, it won’t make you go faster, but it will help you feel more comfortable when you find yourself in uncomfortable circumstances.

Why should cyclists have all the nice kit?
I bought this to be my baselayer for walking in the New Zealand Alps. Both as baselayer and pyjamas it performed excellently and was very comfortable. It also survived washing well, and wearing the bright red made my day.
