Few riders head out on their bike without a windproof shell. Whatever the time of year theyâre a staple part of your riding arsenal. Assos has now patterned a pared-down windproof shell jacket as part of the Mille GT collection to provide essential protection. The Mille GT wind jacket has been brought firmly into the Assos stable at a very fair price point while sporting signature Assos performance. On the front of this jacket they deployed their proprietary Foil Ultra textile borrowed from other race-tuned, year-round pieces in the shells range. The side panels incorporate the high stretch and breathability of their Glossy textile. Additionally, the dual layer collar construction improves elasticity and comfort while riding.
Those same cyclists who never leave without a windproof shell also value packability, demanding an Assos windproof jacket that can easily be stowed in your pocket while riding. This windproof riding jacket from the Mille GT collection meets those demands. Cut in Assosâ regularFit, this is a comfort-focused, easy-to-throw-on piece for essential protection, minimum volume and maximum performance.
