Although we are primarily an outdoor clothing company motorcyclists have been buying EDZ clothing and accessories since we started in the 1990s and our products are used every day by thousands of motorcyclists.
It may sound obvious, but it is amazing how many riders go out on their bikes wearing completely inappropriate choices of outer layers for the prevailing conditions. So ventilated leathers won’t be much good in sub zero conditions no matter what you have underneath and then heavy duty textiles on a boiling hot day won’t be a pleasant experience either.
EDZ offer, 100% Merino Wool base layer that can be worn in hot or cold conditions, in hot these will wick away sweat, dry quickly, stop skin sticking to linings and in cold conditions retain warmth.
Merino base layer vs Synthetic Base Layers
The merino base layers are warmer than synthetics. The synthetic base layers will need washing daily whereas the merino has natural anti odour properties so can be worn for days without getting smelly so ideal for touring.
For extra warmth underneath a motorcycle jacket an extra layer is a good idea, such as our 260g merino . These have good thermal properties without being bulky and work well in combination with a base layer and can be worn over any type of shirt. .
In addition to our base layers and mid-layers EDZ also do merino wool underwear and a whole range of accessories for heads hands and feet.
