Product Review: Moto One Carbon Energized Base Layers

1 of 1

Moto One Carbon Energized Base Layers £69.99 (top) £64.99 (bottoms)

Tester: Michael Neeves

Time used: Six months

What’s good? Manufacturers Moto One say these seamless base layers are made from ‘polypropylene dryarn’ joined with ‘energized carbon’ which keeps you cooler than polyester, allows sweat to evaporate quicker and keeps your heartbeat lower. They do what good undersuits should do: make wearing leathers more comfortable and easier to slide-off when you’re sweating. Although breathable, they’re thicker than other base layers I’ve tried and are a bit too hot to wear when the temperature is very high, but they’re perfect for spring and autumn conditions and keep me warm when it’s chilly.

What’s not? Although superbly made, they’re more expensive than your average base layer.
