An effective baselayer but comes up quite long, not as light as some and quite expensive
Comfortable in UK summer/early-autumn conditions
Single size a bit too large for skinnier or smaller riders
Ekoi is a French company selling directly via its website, which is available in English. Its products offer good value and are very popular in its home country. It ships to the UK and provides free delivery over a relatively modest minimum spend. >>> 15 cold weather clothing deals Ekoi’s singlet baselayer is a one size fits all garment with a seamless body and just a couple of joining seams on the shoulders. It’s very stretchy and has a structured weave with ridged sections over the upper front and the back and sides. The fabric is soft and a mix of 80% polypropylene with 20% polyester. This ensures good wicking too and the baselayer never felt damp or clammy even on slow hot climbs.
Watch: How to dress for hot conditions
The Morpho Senza’s airflow isn’t as good as in some other summer weight baselayers, due to the closed fabric. And the one sized design meant that the fit didn’t feel as close as some other brands’ multi-size offerings. To accommodate larger riders, the baselayer is quite long too. I found it had quite a large overlap with my bibshorts. I’m a UK size Medium and of average height, so I think anyone more slightly built would find that the Morpho Senza was a bit too large to fit them well. >>> Ekoi Guerra sunglasses review On the whole, the Morpho Senza is an adequate rather than an outstanding baselayer. It’s not cheap either and for the price there are options out there which provide a range of sizing and either lighter fabrics for summer use or warmer ones for when the temperature takes a dip.
