EDZ range of all climate wicking base layers are made from performance polyester that is light weight and fast drying. In addition these have excellent thermal properties for the weight.
EDZ & Motorcycling
EDZ have been supplying their kit to motorcyclists for the last 20 years. In this time we have appreciated that when riding a bike the rider can at times be hot (when filtering through traffic on a hot day) and on the same day get cold (when returning home on a cool evening). The second issue a motorcyclist has is not much space to stow additional clothing and thirdly motorcycle clothing tends to be close fitting so not much room for additional layers.
EDZ’s solution is our 3 layer system:
First Layer – base layer
The ‘base layer’ is worn across all temperatures and conditions. When it gets warm it wicks away sweat and stops skin sticking to linings & makes for improved comfort. In cold conditions it insulates by trapping body heat.
Second Layer – mid-layer
When it gets a bit cooler the ‘midlayer’ is worn over the base layer providing additional insulation without adding bulk.
Third Layer – Innershell
In cold conditions a third windproof layer is worn over the base layer & mid-layer to reduce wind chill. As our Innershell is extremely thin so there is no bulking.
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 while wearing our Merino base layer, Mid-layer and Innershell work great with full ventilated leathers, don’t expect these leathers to be the best choice in subzero conditions where a textile jacket would do a better job. (Although the police do use leathers all year round and many use EDZ kit).
Innershell as a standby
It is boiling hot, you are wearing a base layer under a vented jacket – just the job. Later in the day its become quite chilly with a two hour ride home. Fortunately you have your EDZ Innershell windproof shirt which goes under your jacket & the ride home is made with out enduring early stages of hypothermia.
In addition to our garments EDZ also produce a range of functional accessories for heads hands and feet.
