British Columbia-based 7mesh just announced their new Elevate collection of tops, which uses a unique wood-fibre-extracted lyocell with polyester blend fabric, as well as their new Foundation boxers and briefs for men and women. Learn more here…

In anticipation of warmer days ahead, 7mesh just launched their new Elevate collection, as well as their new Foundation Brief and Boxer, which both look like promising options for long, hot days in the saddle. Check out the details on both below.

7mesh Elevate Collection

The Elevate collection of tops are all built with a new fabric that blends wood-fibre-extracted lyocell with polyester for a natural next-to-skin feel without sacrificing technical performance. The result is a lightweight garment that is cooling on hot days, antibacterial, and breathable. The Elevate Collection is available with long or short sleeves and as a women’s tank.

7mesh just sent over the men’s and women’s Elevate Long Sleeves shirts for Emily and me to try out, and although we’ve only used them a couple of times, I can confirm that they are extremely lightweight and comfortable while on the bike. The fabric is very soft next to the skin, and I look forward to testing it out in some warmer weather this summer.

7mesh Foundation Boxers & Briefs

Alongside the new tops are the new Foundation Boxers and Briefs. These undergarments feature an ultra-low-profile 6mm chamois that is ideal for quick laps, days with a lot of hike-a-bike, or for anyone who doesn’t necessarily like the feed of a thick chamois. They are available in a women’s brief and men’s boxer, and both retail for $40 USD. Although I’m pretty set on bikepacking without a chamois, if these are anything like the Elevate long sleeve, they might make a good option for someone transitioning to a chamois-free lifestyle.
