Thermal, weatherproof equipment is no longer the bulky PVC rain capes and adapted ski jackets of decades past, so—at the request of WorldTour pro riders—ASSOS tailored a long-sleeve base layer to provide summer-worthy wicking and odor control that fits unobtrusively beneath race-tuned equipment like a Spring Fall Jersey or Jacket. In cool or cold weather, transporting internal moisture is as important as keeping the external elements out, especially during intense training or racing, when a series of intervals, hill repeats, or attacks can lead to lingering moisture, a clammy chill and frigid misery. Alternatively, full-arm wicking is a must for indoor training, when moving through the air isn’t constantly keeping your arms dry.
Layer it under insulating, weatherproof layers for fall, winter and early spring; for indoor training, layer it under your bib straps and omit the jersey altogether.
TECHNOLOGY ASSOS Circular Seamless mesh eliminates seams and gently compresses for a fit that disappears once it’s on. Odor control and wicking properties make the textile ideal for layering for intense training in cooler weather.
Two separate mesh patterns combine engineered stretch properties for a body-mapped fit. Set-in sleeves preserve a full range of motion beneath layers
