Finisseur Pro Carbon Thermal Base Layer Top
This top is one of the most technically advanced garments in Finisseur’s catalogue. Few, if any, other garments in the sports textile world can claim to use carbon in their fabrics. This Finisseur Pro Carbon Thermal does. It contains this and other materials that make it a super advanced and very special top to wear in winter.
A highly technical fabric
The Pro Carbon Thermal is made from a type of yarn called Resistex Carbon. Its advantages over other conventional yarns are that it offers greater breathability, hygiene and comfort. But also, and not least, because it promotes greater physical performance. This is because Resistex Carbon, which contains carbon, relieves fatigue, increases energy production, reduces oxygen demand and lowers heart rate. All this is due to a greater conductivity, which favours perspiration and a reduction of the electric fields that are always generated around the body and which tend to condition many of our physical capacities.
It is a 2.0 garment, very advanced compared to the average top in its segment. With features that can certainly interest users more interested in their physical performance, in addition to the thermal performance of a winter top like this one.
Light and pleasant to the touch
If we move on to the first sensations, the top feels very light, it is very thin to the touch. In fact, it’s surprisingly thin for a garment designed for cold weather. However, once on and whilst riding, you’ll notice just how snugly it fits to the body, coupled with the fact that the fabric has a remarkable ability to retain temperature and provides a pleasant warmth. It protects you from the cold more than you might think at first glance.
We have used it in temperatures between 4 and 10ºC, using it under jerseys or winter jackets, depending on the temperature of the day and in all cases, we have found it to be a very comfortable and warm garment, with an excellent ability to keep our skin dry. Without having scientific data, such as those appealed in the technical descriptions of the star fabric of the shirt, the Resistex Carbon, we can affirm that the garment has one of the greatest capacities to evacuate sweat to the outside of those we have tested. probably thanks to that extra conductivity that announces the carbon fibre yarn that contains this Pro Carbon Thermal.
The pattern design is also very comfortable. In this sense, the elastic property of the garment that will adapt to any type of anatomy is especially appreciated. There are hardly any seams that could cause chafing. The high elasticity of the top allows you to make all kinds of movements, rotations with the trunk or gestures with the arms without feeling any tension. This point is important for mountain bikers who like Enduro or technical disciplines that require continuous movement on the bike.
We found this Pro Carbon Thermal to be an exceptional garment. First of all, for the characteristics of comfort, due to the lightness and elasticity. Secondly for the warmth of the garment thanks to the high conductivity of its fibres, which make the sweat is evacuated and away as soon as possible from our skin. An effect that we have noticed is superior to that of most of our competitors’ garments.
A high performance and really technical jersey that doesn’t exactly have a low price tag, although we don’t think it’s too high considering its performance level.
