Evolution has produced what ASSOS claims is the fastest-ever version of its Equipe short-sleeved Jersey.
Precise patterning and sharp finishing details deliver the next generation of ASSOS speed and race-ready comfort.
Improving on the venerable Equipe RS Jersey was no small task, so was approached by addressing the smallest details - those which add up when every second counts. The resulting Aero SS Jersey does just that, combining micro-adjusted patterning and sharp finishing touches. So now you have the next phase of ASSOS aerodynamics, one it's calling 'aeroFit'.
The development started with ASSOS applying its proven circular knit miniCheck Tex, a highly elastic 3D knit fabric that’s been specifically developed with breathability and moisture repelling qualities in mind. The back of the jersey incorporates ASSOS' Stabilizer textile, which secures the jersey with its limited vertical-stretch composition.
The jersey's developers were also persuaded in their choice of material by the aggressive position taken by speed-focused riders. It also had to be capable of being used to produce bonded sleeves, yoke, and pockets with joins as smooth and flexible as possible. The result is ASSOS' fine-gauge warp knit Push Pull textile, which offers high UV protection (UPF 50+) along with quick-drying, bi-stretch properties.
Beyond the more precise aeroFit patterning, extra purpose-driven details also help give you 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. The jersey's back panels feature the proven triple ramp pockets to lock in your cargo, along with a lighter elastic on the hem for further weight savings.
