It was not an easy task to improve the popular Equipe RS jersey, which is why assos paid special attention to the smallest details. Details that count when a fraction of a second makes the difference. The result of this improvement process is the Aero SS jersey: it combines fine patterns and elegant details that not only round off the design but also heralded the next phase of ASSOS aerodynamics, which assos calls aeroFit.
Assos has used the miniCheck Tex material with circular knitting here, which has already proven its worth many times over and stands out as a particularly elastic 3D knitted material with bi-stretch, in the development of which assos particularly wanted to integrate breathable and moisture-wicking properties. The stabilizing material is used on the back, which holds the jersey in place thanks to its structure with vertical strength, especially when the pockets are fully packed. In order to best accommodate the aerodynamic race position of the riders, assos used an adhesive technique for the arm cuffs, yoke and front zipper of the material. This technique leaves the textile nice and soft and very flexible. The material has a high UV protection of (USF 50+) and dries extremely fast with its push-pull properties.
Besides the more precise aeroFit pattern, the additional functional details also contribute to improved comfort and aerodynamics. The first details can be admired on the front; an incredibly light, bonded camlock zipper, sealed seams at the waist and a combination of open-faced, bonded sleeves that promise both better comfort and support. At the back, assos has integrated its proven "Triple Ramp" concept pockets, which allow you to easily store your belongings while travelling. The model is rounded off by the use of a lighter elastic band at the hem, which further contributes to the lightness of the creation.
aeroFit: the narrowest cut from assos, specially designed for speed and fits tighter than "racingFit", which also provides a higher level of compression. Outside the riding position it may feel restrictive, but in the riding position it fits like a second skin.
miniCheck Tex material: An open 3D knitted structure that is characterised by its outstanding air exchange. Fast drying and incredibly light. Despite its light weight, it features USF 25. integrated odorControl, which ensures durability and hygienic conditions.
Push Pull: The pockets and sleeves are made of the Push Pull material developed by assos itself, which has high UV protection (USF 50+). This fast-drying fine knitted fabric with bi-stretch is characterized by high breathability and high wearing comfort.
Stabilizer material: A feather-light but strong material that is ideal for a cooling insert on the back of the jersey. Despite its low weight and volume, it maintains its stability and shape - and even offers a USF of 30.
Triple Ramp" concept bags: The storage design developed by assos is characterized by its three flap pockets, which guarantee easy access, security and stability thanks to their optimal position. There is also an opening for your headphones in the right pocket, while the micro-perforated, bonded reflector ensures that you won't become one with the dark.
Bonded zipper: The incredibly light, bonded, full-length camlock zipper allows you to easily adjust the temperature to your personal preference. The collar features an insert that has been manufactured using a special plastic processing technique, which, thanks to this stabilisation, makes it possible to open and close the zip with just one hand.
Open-edged and bonded sleeves: Smooth, wrapped front with a bonded back, ensuring the best possible balance between comfort and stability.
Sealed seams at waist: The bonded edges improve aerodynamics and add elegance to the fit.
Lightweight hem at the back: A wide, secure and elastic hem that ensures you are not disturbed by friction while riding. Lighter and more breathable than the previous generation.
