Assos Equipe RS Aero Short Sleeve Jersey
The fast gets faster with the evolution of Assos' Equipe SS Jersey. Precise patterning and sharp finishing details deliver the next generation of ASSOS speed and race-ready comfort.
To improve on the venerable Equipe RS Jersey was no small task, something Assos approached by addressing the smallest details - the ones that add up when every second counts. The resulting Aero SS Jersey does just that, combining micro-adjusted patterning and sharp finishing touches that have launched the next phase of ASSOS aerodynamics, one they're calling aeroFit.
To begin, they applied their proven circular knit miniCheck Tex, which is a highly elastic 3D knit fabric that's been specifically developed with breathability and moisture transfer in mind. At the rear, they've incorporated our Stabilizer textile, which secures the jersey with its limited vertical-stretch composition. The aggressive position speed-focused riders take also informed our material choice for the new raw + bonded sleeves, yoke, and pockets, which needed to be as buttery smooth and flexible as possible. Our 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.
Beyond the more precise aeroFit patterning, additional purpose-driven details also contribute to increased speed and comfort. It begins in the front with the ultralight bonded camlock zipper, taped waist, and the combination of raw + bonded sleeves for both comfort and hold. In the back we’ve employed our proven triple ramp pockets to lock in your cargo, along with a lighter elastic on the hem for further weight savings.
