The defining feature of the Megmeister Drynamo Cycle base layer is its seamless construction. There is only a single seam over each shoulder, but otherwise it’s all one piece. That extends not just to the body, but to the armholes, collar and waistband which are all unseamed around their edges.

When not worn, this gives the Megmeister Drynamo Cycle a rather unfinished look as the edges, particularly at the armholes, tend to curl up. But the effect disappears once the Megmeister Drynamo Cycle base layer is worn and the fabric is stretched out more. And the lack of seams means that it’s very comfortable worn under a jersey and bib shorts, with no obvious transition at the base layer’s edges.
