The summer of 2016 saw cyclists from all disciplines glued to the television in anticipation of a dirt-filled showdown between the world road champion and a gaggle of the world's best cross-country racers. Sagan provided the fireworks early on, but the star of the day was Switzerland's Schurter, deftly flicking and carving his way through the course to garner gold in an eye-catching kit topped with Assos' SS.equipeJersey_evo8 Men's Jersey. Since then, the equipeJersey has garnered some serious attention as an exceptionally lightweight, summer- and race-worthy jersey.
Assos has long outfitted the Swiss national team, and the equipeJersey is the natural progression for a company that has earned its reputation for being forever on the cutting edge of fabrics, fit, and high quality construction. That a road jersey can handle the abuse of a top-level XC course in uncomfortably hot and humid conditions is a testament to the Assos approach to kit, and we're excited to see it available for the rest of us with a design that has just enough flash without losing the brand's classic Swiss aesthetic.
Most companies offer some form of summer weight kit, but it's the small details that set the equipeJersey apart from the crowd. It boasts raw cut and welded hems at the sleeves and front waist for smooth, uninterrupted lines from sleeve to body. Welded seams also maintain the stretchiness of the fabric, which increases comfort and reduces pinching compared to the restricted stretch of jerseys with traditionally sewn seams.
The extra lightweight mesh across the back has two-way stretch, so it expands and contracts as you need it to side-to-side but doesn't stretch downwards when pockets are loaded with nutrition, keys, a phone, a multi-tool, and a patch kit. The pockets themselves are also made from a slightly different fabric, with reinforcement at the attachment points to improve durability and further fend off pocket sag. In the quest to look pro and stay comfortable even when packed with essentials for a long day in the saddle, the equipeJersey delivers in spades.
