Blurring the lines between thermal LS jersey and low-volume softshell, Assos's Spring Fall Jacket launches a new category of race equipment tuned for demanding spring and autumn conditions.
"For colder races 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."
