Riding hard into the wind, tackling fast, exposed descents or simply setting out for the day in less than ideal weather conditions, the Craft Be Active Extreme WS Short Sleeve Base Layer is an ideal first layer to protect against the wind, retain warmth and regulate ride temperature.

Pairing Craft's Be Active Extreme fabric with Gore Windstopper fabric across the body and shoulders makes sure that, where it's needed, the wind protective properties block out chill winds,  leaving areas like the arms, back and sides to function as normal base to regulate temperature.

Paired solely with an outer jacket, possibly with the addition of arm warmers for colder temperatures, the Craft Be Active Extreme WS Short Sleeve Base Layer is an ideal first layer for cold season club runs, sportives or training rides.

    We've all seen pro cyclists stuffing newspapers under their jerseys before descending to combat the cold. This top uses wind stopper fabric to achieve the same effect. I have used it in conditions below 4 degrees centigrade on my commute to work as the only insulation under my Gabba and my Josette jerseys. It keeps my core very warm - noticeably warmer that just a merino base layer, It is a good snug fit and pleasingly long at the front and back to provide insulation well below waist level. I will be buying another. Recommended.

    Ideal for chilly headwinds in spring or autumn. Keeps cold out without overheating you and works well with just a jersey or layered up.

    Was in the market for a winter baselayer and as I already own other Craft kit I had a look at what they had to offer! Liked the look of this as it had the windproof panel and I thought it looked good black.
    Really nice piece of kit, does as it should keeping the wind off your front and letting excess heat out the back. It is quite a long cut too so keeps more of you warm ;)
    Very impressed and would highly recommend!!

    Its always an issue protecting and conserving hard earn body heat when going down hill or into winds with a wind chill factor that gets a mention on the weather forecast that day. Very long in the torso which is great if your anatomy resembles the body of a seven foot basketball player with stumpy legs ,the benefits being there is no way the lower back mooning will occur and even offers an extra seating comfort layer!. Does what its designed to do very well and although I am a New Zealand merino wearer at heart there is a time and a place for wearing this and leaving the wool behind. Even sheep seek shelter from strong cold winds to keep warm. Sue. New Zealand

Craft's sizing is very Swedish, which means the size sets are realistic, and not at all like the very small Italian brands. With Craft, a large is indeed a large. The only exception is the more 'elite' range, which is more of a pure race fit, and which depending on your cycling style, one you may wish to size up for.
