You have been a cyclist for a while now and you want to improve your comfort on the bike.
The importance of Base layers for managing body heat and moisture transfer can not be overstated.
Pro Riders use base layers on 30-40 degree hot days down to sub zero temperatures on cold days to manage their comfort - the more comfortable you are the better you perform - don't forget you are the engine.
Without a base layer to govern your cooling ability the moisture will tend to sit on the surface of your body or within the outer layers of your clothing longer, which depending on the temperature conditions and style of fabrics you are using will cause you to remain hotter in hot conditions and cooler in wet conditions.
An example of this is if you think of a car radiator it has lots of fins and a core network of channels to distribute the hot water to fins.
Your body is the same but with no fins on the outer surface, the clothing texture provides the mesh/fins for the passing air to do its thing.
The style of base layer fabric can be anywhere from a fine knit to a open mesh knit the amount of each will depending on the intended condition that the base layer was designed to excel in.
The construction of the fabric can have a lot of thermal ability or a very little thermal ability. This is why some base layers are more suitable for hot conditions and some for cold conditions.
