A good ride starts with the right equipment, which is why every ASSOS product is engineered, tested and refined so that each individual item functions perfectly with other elements in the collection. The ASSOS Layering System does not have absolute values; it exists as a guide to individually fine-tune your #EquipmentNotClothing so that you can #SufferinComfort. Versatility and adaptability is the name of the game.
The ASSOS Layering System (ALS) is the ASSOS guide for what to wear, beginning from the base up. It ensures every ride incorporates the perfect combination of ASSOS apparel - factoring in season, conditions, temperature and ride type, with flexibility to adjust accordingly.
What do I wear/take on a ride... #EquipmentNotClothing is organized into three ASSOS CLIMACODE Seasons; SUMMER, FALL/SPRING, WINTER.
Begin with the season you’re in. Then ask yourself three questions:
What's the current weather + forecasted weather? sun/rain/wind/temperatures
What's the ride profile? flat/undulating/climbing/descending
What will be the overall intensity of the ride? easy/medium/hard
HAVE A GOOD RIDE!
