Armored Base Layer - Scargo Cycling



Crashing sucks, and if you haven’t crashed, you haven’t ridden long enough. While you can’t prevent crashes, you can help make them less painful and spend less time off the bike. 
The armored base layer is our first product, and is designed to help reduce the risk of collarbone and shoulder injuries in many common road bike crashes. We designed it to be worn under a traditional cycling jersey and bib.
The Shirt: Even without the armor, this would be an awesome base layer. We cut and sewn in New York City’s garment district from a North Carolina made fabric. A hidden zipper makes getting in and out a breeze, and a unique red, white and blue stitching pattern makes it scream. We use some of the best performance fabrics out there. It's an 85% Micropoly / 15% Spandex, 170 gsm blend, which is strong enough to stay in place and light enough for summer.  
The Armor:  The armor in our shirts is designed and built by one of the leading suppliers to the motorcycle jacket industry. Made of flexible but dense foam, the armor meets EN 1621-1 crash test standards. The armored pads are fully removable, and the base layer can be machine washed. 
Sizing: 
Small: 36"-38" Chest
Medium: 38"-40" Chest
Larger: 42"-44" Chest.
If between sizes: For a looser casual fit, size up. For a tight racers fit, size down.
Shipping: Free within the US. 
Returns:Unworn merchandise can be returned within 30 days for a full refund.
