BRP has updated its base layer line of winter wear to offer everyone the right clothing for their style of riding, from an ultra active mountain rider to the long distance touring rider.

There's plenty of talk about layering clothing and the advantages offered to everyone who enjoys the outdoors in winter. BRP has examined today's advanced fabrics to offer what a winter enthusiast needs: moisture wicking ability and thermal insulation to fit their activity.

The new BRP base layers are offered in three segments to fit the wide spectrum of riders and temperatures, from spring mountain riding to cold January mornings. The Active and Ultralight base layers combine with a mid-layer of fleece wear, like the Technical Fleece shirt and pants and an outer shell, like the Helium or X-Team race jacket, matched to climate and riding style, to give a rider the most comfortable experience possible.

The Thermal Base Layer is constructed of high filament polyester with slight brushing for a soft feel and Spandex for easy movement, ideal for the touring rider and those experiencing the coldest climate conditions.

Ultralight Base Layers use a combination of polyester and coconut fiber for construction. The coconut fiber promotes evaporative cooling and absorbs odor while moving perspiration out and trapping warmth in. Spandex and mesh panels in key areas allow easier movement and promote faster drying and better ventilation. This mid-weight base layer is ideal for most trail riders who vary their riding throughout the day.

The Active Base Layer is compression fit for added comfort and enhanced with X-Static in the fiber to thermodynamically regulate body temperature. Permanently treated for antibacterial performance, the Active garments also feature silver woven into the fibers to eliminate odor. Extra panels in specific areas help improve ventilation and promote faster drying.

The Thermal Base Layer top retails for $64.99, the bottom retails for $49.99 and socks retail for $19.99. The tops are available in three colors for men and two colors for women, and the bottoms are available in charcoal grey only.

The Ultralight Base Layer top retails for $39.99, the bottom retails for $29.99 and socks retail for $9.99. It is available in charcoal grey only.

The Active Base Layer top retails for $59.99, the bottom retails for $54.99 and the socks retail for $24.99. It is available in black only.
