ASSOS EQUIPE RS Spring Fall Jacket

This streamlined race-spec jacket goes on offense in cold, wet weather, blurring the lines between a thermal LS jersey and low-volume softshell. #equipmentnotclothing
For colder rides in fall and spring, when a thermal SS jersey, arm warmers, and vest combo isn’t cutting it, a warmer option was developed: the all-new EQUIPE RS Spring Fall Jacket. And while it wears a similar look to the Spring Fall Aero SS Jersey, it’s a completely different animal.
With ASSOS double-layer twinDeck construction—made using Push Pull fabric on the exterior and more insulating Rhombus fabric on the inside, the jacket locks out the cold and creates a pocket of insulating air between the layers, while still remaining exceptionally breathable. The first thing to notice are two “valves” on the fronts of the shoulders. This ASSOS-exclusive feature acts like a set of air vents that draws in air from the outside and injects it between the two layers of fabric. The rationale behind this is that when riding hard/on the limit, preserving a tucked profile yet still needing a touch of body-cooling ventilation, unzipping isn’t always the best option. This design solves that issue of overheating, resulting in a regulated core body temperature, without sacrificing aerodynamics.
The sleeves are made with special SONIC textile, a highly elastic ribbed fabric that both molds to the arms and delivers light insulation with its brushed construction. The cuffs have been finished with a raw-cut design, which seamlessly pairs with gloves and maintains a sleek, aerodynamic profile. ASSOS color-coded Triple Ramp Pockets, metal camlock zipper, and ultralight ribbed rear hem complete the piece.
ASSOS CLIMACODE 2.3 SPRING/FALL - color code yellow
Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL, XLG
Push Pull: The main fabric is our ASSOS-developed Push Pull warp-knit textile with high UV protection (UPF 50+). Highly breathable, this fine gauge knit with bi-stretch is quick drying and very comfortable.
Rhombus: Skin-facing polypropylene terry with smooth jacquard, this textile features a 3D diamond net construction to promote airflow, wick moisture, and add an extra layer of insulation.
twinDeck: Double-layer fabric construction boosts insulation using a combination of Push Pull and Rhombus textiles. Employed on the front panel and upper back.
SONIC-SN: The sleeves are made with this highly elastic ribbed fabric, which creates a second-skin fit and features a brushed micro-sanded face for added thermal protection.
Diffusor: An ASSOS-exclusive sewing construction that creates dual “valves” on the fronts of the shoulders, drawing in cool air for added ventilation.
Double-Slider Zipper: Reversed camlock design, metal construction, with stabilizer tab at the top to facilitate one-handed operation.
Triple Ramp Pockets: Our storage design with three textile-lidded pockets optimally located for ease of access; color-coded and featuring a micro-perforated bonded tape for visibility.
Raw-Cut Cuffs: Cuffs are raw cut—with silicone treatment—creating a smooth, aerodynamic design that seamlessly integrates with gloves and additional layers.
Ribbed Rear Hem: A wide, ribbed elastic hem ensures a comfortable and secure fit.
aeroFit: Our trimmest, speed-focused fit that’s tighter and more compressive than our racingFit. May feel restrictive out of the riding position but feels like a second skin while riding.
