Manufactured to high standards in our EU factory.


  • These base layers are multi-zoned knitted garments, seamless, warm and supportive where necessary but, also wicking, cooling and comfortable upto 30 degrees.
  • Tops are cut with a long body to stop them pulling out of your pants and long arms to stop them exposing your wrists. Knee zones are designed specifically to be used with next to body armour.
  • All garments include a highly technical silver yarn that massively reduces natural odour when worn for longer periods (like Merino wool, but more washable!).
  • The Core Armour Pocket Long Sleeve is armour compatible but NOT sold with armour.

Baselayers are one of the most important and underrated parts of your clothing system. They must keep you dry, warm, cool and comfortable no matter the external conditions or your own body temperature. The most important thing to know about base layers is this:

If you do not use a suitable baselayer system under your technical over layers, they will not work. 

Each piece of the AS Core range is designed as an Adventure Motorcycle specific base layer for repeated multi-day use keeping you comfortable in temperatures of up to 30 degrees.

To achieve the best ‘Adventure Motorcycle’ baselayer we could, we first created our own thread made from a unique blend of Nylon, Lycra and Silver Ion yarns. This made our garment building block tough, comfortable, wicking and ‘odour resistant’ (although bacteria resistant Silver Ion yarns are expensive they are not a ‘coating’ and cannot be washed out, nor do they wear out).

Then came the garment ‘zoning’ where knit design choices helped us make different sections of the pieces support tired core muscles, allow maximum airflow to high sweat areas and created 3D areas that trap air and insulate on cold days, but with an airflow over them drag sweat away from skin to help keep skin feeling dry and fresh when the outside temperature rises. 

And finally garment cut... if any of our core garments couldn’t be worn 24/7 without thinking about them whilst rallying or on a long trip, it was back to the drawing board.

The Core Armour Pocket Long Sleeve was developed to give riders the option of creating their own armoured base layer by using their own armour. If you already have a full set of back, chest, shoulder and elbow armour, this baselayer provides a great way to build your own armoured shirt.
