ASSOS EQUIPE RS Spring Fall Jacket
New ASSOS 2020 Spring/Fall Collection item
November 2019: ARRIVED
This streamlined race-spec jacket goes on offense in cold, wet weather, blurring the lines between a thermal LS jersey and low-volume softshell.
For colder rides in fall and spring, when a thermal SS jersey, arm warmers, and vest combo isn’t cutting it, we developed a warmer option: the all-new EQUIPE RS Spring Fall Jacket. And while it wears a similar look to our Spring Fall Aero SS Jersey, it’s a completely different animal.
With our double-layer twinDeck construction—made using our Push Pull exterior and more insulating Rhombus 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 you’ll 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 jersey’s two layers of fabric. The rationale behind this is that when we’re riding 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 our 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 maintain a sleek, aerodynamic profile. Our 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.
