The ASSOS UMA GTV Spring Fall Vest C2 is a windproof and water-resistant shell vest that provides core coverage for variable conditions in spring and fall or on long, chilly summer descents.
Blending increased protection on the front and increased breathability on the back, the reengineered UMA GTV Spring Fall Vest is more versatile than any UMA Vest ever produced. It features two new technologies: a windproof, waterproof, and thermal membrane from our new Airblock line across the chest, shoulders, and sides and a rear panel of our new, ultrabreathable VENTAMESH textile. The abdomen panel and collar maintain thermoregulation with the lightweight insulation of RX EVO Light. The combination of protection on the front panel and aggressive breathability and heat-dissipation on the rear panel maintain the ideal personal microclimate in cool, variable conditions. The revised fit layers well over summer-weight jerseys or the GT Spring Fall Jersey C2, adding versatile protection to any layering system.
WHEN/HOW TO USE IT Pair with any equipment on any ride threatened by variable conditions. Layer over summer equipment for long descents or sudden storms, or layer over the GT Spring Fall Jersey C2 for the damp, cool days of spring and fall.
TECHNOLOGY FEATURED FABRICS Airblock.888 is the midweight version of ASSOS new Airblock family of technical membranes developed in-house. It insulates and blocks wind and water, protecting the personal microclimate against variable conditions. RX EVO Light adds light insulation with stretch and breathability across the stomach and collar, and a rear panel of our new Ventamesh textile provides more bi-directional stretch, streamlining fit while boosting ventilation to prevent overheating in temperate conditions. Airblock softshells are patented and engineered in the ASSOS Textile Laboratory Lugano. CONSTRUCTION/FIT A streamlined regularFit with high-stretch textiles eliminates the need for waist elastics and armhole hems. Less restriction around the chest and shoulders creates more long-distance comfort while better accommodating layering. ENGINEERING LouvreTec:Darting at the collar bones removes excess material to eliminate bunching or wrinkling across the chest while in the riding position. zeroPressure Waist:A soft, highly elastic waist construction that improves comfort and support across the stomach, minus any pressure or pinching. Raw Cut Cuff:Hem-free armholes reduce volume and friction for layering or when the vest is stowed. Reflective elastic:Adds visibility to the back hem in the low-light, overcast conditions when added protection is most valuable.
