Not everyone's down with the tight fit of a cycling jersey. Even those of us who are will sometimes want something baggier and a little more casual for some singletrack or a ride to the taproom, but still packed with thoughtful design and technical features. Informed by those design requirements, we set out to refine our Lake Street Tech Tee and create the ultimate workout, mountain bike, commute, and casual tee.
We first settled on the perfect fabric, a merino blend that was light, stretchy, and soft, butthat wouldallow us to apply dye sublimated artwork and be tough enough to take some of the abuse we intended to put the shirts through on the trail. Next, we took a long, hard look at the Lake Street Tech Tee pattern to see where we could improve it and make the most of our new fabric. That lead to us dropping the tail just a bit more than on the Lake Street, helping you keep it modest on the bike, at the gym, or out doing yard work. We also tucked the width of the shirt in just a bit right above the hips, keeping a loose-but-not-baggy fit that won't blow in the breeze. Finally, we switched from a v-neck to a crew neck for style points.

Tapered cut for flattering fit
Dropped tail to keep you covered, even if your shorts slide down
Fantastic shirt! I received this as a gift for riding season, but has become my go to t-shirt for all activities. Worked great as an undershirt for a sufferfest day on a splitboard. I use it as a comfortable layer at work and look forward to using on an upcoming mountain bike hut to hut adventure in Canada this summer.
I highly recommend. Fits my tall scrawny frame well.
