High-wicking, long-sleeved, with a crew neck and Polygiene ™ odour control technology? The AKHQ riders are buying one of these in every colour…
This evolution of our much-loved Koulin base layer has long sleeves and a relaxed crew neck, giving you extra protection from the elements out on rides when the temperatures are cooler.
Moisture-wicking and breathable, with body mapped mesh panels, the Koulin Trail Long Sleeve is ideal for when you're working hard and, err, glistening with beads of sweat. Polygiene ™ treatment eliminates odours, so you'll be able to wear your Koulin to whizz around the trails or on multiday bikepacking adventures until your heart's content.
Flatlocked seams ensure comfort, and a discrete, handy back pocket is ideal for stashing your keys, credit card, or liquorice allsorts.
Fabric: 100% Polyester
Polygiene ™ Technology
L: 190 g
Koulin has been treated with Polygiene® Stay Fresh technology, meaning you can wear it for longer before it starts to whiff.
When your tee does start to pong, wash it at 40°C. Don’t use fabric softeners or conditioners though – these stop your tee from wicking as well.

How It Is Made
Wear more, wash less: it’s every busy adventurer’s dream…
We apply Polygiene™ to garments so that they smell less with wear and need washing less between use: ideal for that multi day getaway (and you’re doing your bit for the environment too).
Polygiene ™ is a silver based treatment that we apply during fabric production. The silver chloride prevents the growth of the bacteria that makes your clothes pong without interfering with the skin’s natural bacteria flora, so it’s comfortable and safe next to your skin. Polygiene ™ is bluesign ® approved (meeting the highest environmental standards) and lasts as long as your clothes do, so you’ll never need to reproof them.
The catch? There isn’t one! You can wear this garment day in, day out, and day back in again without causing a stink – winner!
Where It Is Made
Our products are made in the best factories in the world. We know the factories personally and they have all signed up to our Code of Ethics in our supply chain. This includes the Ethical Trading Initiative base code, fair pay, safe working environments, no child labour, no modern slavery, no bribery or corruption, no materials from conflict zones and humane farming methods.
Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
End of life
