This technical team-issue jersey is what Assos' professional team riders zip into during the warmer race days. They've worked closely with these athletes to further refine their short-sleeve jerseys, and the result has brought them to what you see here: a superlight aerodynamic jersey that addresses the minute fit and comfort details that become noticed only after countless hours in the saddle. Assos landed on their airy miniCheck Tex for the front panel, which is a highly elastic 3D knit fabric that's been specifically developed with breathability in mind. At the rear, they have incorporated their Dribbling textile, which stabilizes the jersey with its limited vertical-stretch composition, especially when the pockets are loaded up. The aggressive in-saddle position these riders take also informed Assos' material choice for the sleeves, dropped collar, and upper back panel, which needed to be as buttery smooth and flexible as possible. Their fine-gauge warp knit Push-Pull textile was just the ticket, providing high UV protection (UPF 50+) along with its quick-drying, bi-stretch properties.
miniCheck Tex: Open 3D knit fabric that has truly exceptional breathability. Quick-drying and superlight. UPF 25 despite weighing so little. Built-in odorControl for durability and hygiene.
Push-Pull: The sleeves, collar, and upper back employ 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.
Dribbling: Featherweight but strong material, perfect for creating a cooling panel on the back of the cycling jersey. Maintains stability and alignment-and has UPF 30-despite its minimal weight and volume.
Stabilizer: A 2-way stretch material with minimal give on the vertical axis. Selected to produce stable, high capacity pockets that won't sag.
V-Neck Collar Construction: A dropped cut around the neck, which achieves an ideal fit when in the racing position.
Triple Ramp Pockets: Assos' storage design with three textile-lidded pockets optimally located for ease of access; security and stability guaranteed.
Raw Cut Sleeves: Creates the smoothest transition possible between the and fabric and skin. More comfort and precise hold with less pressure.
Full-Length Zipper: A slim central fastener allows full personal adjustment to temperature and exertion.
racingFit: A fit that is tighter and slightly more compressive than Assos' regularFit options. It may feel restrictive out of the riding position but feels like a second skin while riding, resulting in improved comfort and less drag.
