After developing our revolutionary world first, totally unique in the universe merino compression fabric for our leggings, we wondered if it maybe it would be good for a sports bra as well? And hey guess what? It is! It’s amazing for that, in fact.

So here it is: The Pace Sports Bra. And while it might look a bit like a regular sports bra, the fabric makes this one oh so different and oh so much better. For starters, it delivers that perfect combination of comfort and performance. There’s the natural, ultra soft and comfy fabric as well as the support you need for all sorts of medium to high impact activities.

That means you get everything you expect from our high performance merino garments including natural breathability, temperature-regulation, moisture wicking and odour resistance. Plus a great fit and feel.

And we know some of you will say “oh gross”, but you can seriously work out hard in this one, and go with our ‘wear and air’ philosophy. Unlike stinky synthetics, the natural anti-microbial properties will mean it’s good to go for round two, three or even four before you need to wash it.

This amazing merino-rich fabric is fully temperature-regulating for four season comfort delivering ‘insulation’ to help prevent overheating when you warm up.

Firm fit and more support than our Zodiac or Altitude Crops.

Smooth, wide, rub-free elastic.

Triple strap design for extra fit, comfort and support.

Tag-free and flatlock stitching eliminates chafe. 

Cup ‘pockets’ with removable inserts.

Fits true to size. Model wears size small. Model is usually a clothing size 8, height 174cm, chest 90cm, waist 65cm, hips 92cm.


Snow sports.




Midweight 280gsm 

76% superfine Australian Merino Wool

15% Elastane for compression, lift and support

9% Nylon for added durability

Love it!

This is my second pace sports bra and it’s just as good as the first one! I’m a 12E /14DD and the large fits well! Could almost size up but I like wearing it for energetic pursuits so prefer the snug fit. My main complaint is that although the main fabric does not retain smell at all, the elastic band does, so I wash it more than my other merino items. But all in all a fantastic product, totally recommend!

Good support for the girls ;)

I was so excited when io brought this out. A crop top with enough support for running and other high impact activities. I have been for a few runs in it and the girls didn't move an inch. They felt very well supported! It is also super soft and looks great too. I love it and would highly recommend

Absolutely love it

I wore this crop for a 70k trail event and I didn't think about it all day.. not one little bit of chaffing. It's gorgeous and soft and I'm really happy this style has the cup inserts. Worth every $.

Thanks for the review Kat and congratulations on your amazing effort last weekend!

pretty and comfy

I got the size L (i'm 36CUS, 14C AU) and it's a firm fit. will be good for medium and high impact for sure. If i get another one I might try an XL for everyday lounging for a bit more looseness, but I totally can wear this one all day long without issue.

I'm not a big shirt-off woman, but i love the print (I got wildflowers) for if I get the urge on a hot summer day. The strap design is pretty and doesn't chafe. the wool is just so comfy and doesn't take on body odors like my poly workout bras. (I haven't worn my iO to workout in yet, it's still 'dressy' but I might reach that point someday!)

Nice support

This crop looks great, feels great and so supportive without digging in. And such a soft feel to it.
