The Riverside Crop V2 is part of Bakline's premium line and is a featherlight layer designed to go over a sports bra for training and racing. Constructed two different fabric panels, the front is made of our signature buttery-soft performance fabric to give you great fit and breathability. The back panel is a very light weight mesh, keeping you cool in the thick of summer heat and performing on race day.
The V2 keeps everything we love about the original and tweaked the cut based on customer feedback. We widened the straps slightly to cover a wider range of sports bras and tweaked the cut to improve fit across the size range. We're proud of the fact that this is the only elite performance race crop that we can find which has been designed and built for women from XS through XXL.
"Contoured" garments are generally designed for individuals with a more contoured torso, as the garment is constructed to contour bodies with chests often requiring the use of a sports bra and/or hips. Our contoured cut and its size bands are commonly described or labeled by other brands as a "women's cut." The size you most expect to be, if reaching for a garment labeled as "women's," would be a helpful starting point.
Bakline firmly believes that garments should be described with respect to how they are designed and not with respect to a specific gender identify. Anyone, regardless of gender, can be comfortable and perform well in any of our cuts depending on your personal preferences, body shape, size, and style.
To better determine your size, we've calibrated a size recommender and provided detailed fit guidance specific to each product. Where products do not have a specific sizing page or guidance, we have a high level sizing page and you can always contact us via the Live Chat or by emailing Bakline Support for help.
