A low-volume, second-skin aerodynamic jacket, engineered with a 3-layer membrane and high stretch thermal textiles that provide wind-blocking, waterproof insulation. Perfect for Canadian late Fall and early Spring conditions.
ASSOS iconic Habu Jacket returns, completely redesigned and engineered with AIRBLOCK.888, a new midweight 3-layer membrane that blocks wind and water while maintaining stretch and breathability. Thermal, high-stretch textiles have then been added at strategic locations on the back, lower front panel and neck for thermal insulation and increased breathability.
Pair with the ASSOS EQUIPE R HABU Winter Bib Tights, various ASSOS Skin Layers and appropriate winter head, hand and foot ASSOSOIRES.
TECHNOLOGY FEATURED FABRICS The jacket is constructed on a base of AIRBLOCK.888, a mid-weight technical 3-layer membrane developed by ASSOS. It insulates and blocks wind and water, protecting the individual’s microclimate against variable conditions while maintaining stretch and breathability. RX Evo textile adds water repellency and insulation to the jacket’s rear, lower front, and the neck. The inner lining is FIAMMA textile, which adds soft stretch and insulates the chest. CONSTRUCTION/FIT ASSOS racingFit is a second-skin, aerodynamic silhouette designed with world tour feedback and proven with world tour results. Compressive textiles, micro-adjusted shaping, and low-bulk, raw-cut hems and cuffs identify racingFit as the definitive speed series. ENGINEERING - struzzoKragen: A neck collar of lighter, soft touch insulation with a comfort fit, designed to actively modulate the personal microclimate without requiring unzipping and exposing the throat to cold air. Layers over neck warmers on colder days. - twinDeck: A double construction that layers soft insulation below a softshell membrane, adding protection in crucial areas. - Triple Ramp Pockets: Flexible fabric panels sewn into the pockets create “lids,” securing and stabilizing the contents while protecting against precipitation or road spray. - ASSOSOIRES Pocket: Located on the front panel. Secure storage for shell gloves or heavier accessories during high-intensity intervals. - Reflective strip: Additional elements to increase visibility in the low-light, overcast conditions when wind and rain protection are most valuable.
