Assos DB.10 trackJack $339.95
For the equipeCampionissimo.
The new DB.10 trackJack falls into the 'after bike' collection from Assos, as it's a casual outer shell that's been engineered to protect you from the elements. The DB.10 was built to represent the perfect balance of style, comfort, and functionality that you've come to expect from the Swiss apparel designer, as it brings its best fabrics and fit to the table. The result is a new take on what's possible from a low-volume shell.
The DB.10 trackJack was built with several of Assos' exclusive fabrics. For the lower-body paneling, Assos' DB.ZERO 205 fabric was employed. This flexible material works to keep your core both insulated and dry through its dual-layer composition. The stretchy outer-layer provides a touch of insulation, while the meshnet inner pulls moisture away from your skin and clothing layers underneath. This transportation process continues as moisture passes through the fabric and is deposited on the surface layer, where it quickly evaporates. Due to these properties, Assos considers this fabric to be a 'transportation' textile, as it functions to draw moisture away from the skin while still insulating your core.
For the upper paneling, Assos added its water- and wind-repellent DB Rombo 215 fabric. This shiny material works in conjunction with the DB.ZERO 205 lower paneling to block the elements and to provide enhanced temperature regulation to your core. For the shoulders and arms, Assos applied its stretchy Bi-elastic fabric. In addition to providing a full range of movement at these high-stress zones, this material is also an effective transporter of moisture, furthering your overall comfort by keeping you dry. The trackJack paneling was rounded out with 3D-honeycomb mesh underarm inserts, which, together with the other paneling materials, maintains your 'internal microClima' inside the shell.
The DB.10 trackJack differs from Assos' cycling jackets in that it incorporates a more spacious paneling design built specifically for your daily life off of the bicycle. The fabric panels were joined in a way that contours to the body without restricting any movement. The separate shoulder and elbow panels were cut in a shape that mimics your anatomical structure, which creates a fit that smoothly wraps your arms and upper torso. A thin 'free-standing' neck panel composes the DB.10's collar, which was specifically designed to keep pressure off of the neck. And to complement this overall theme of comfort, Assos covered the inside seams of the DB.10 in order to provide smooth, chafe-free contact with your skin. Assos also knew that you'd be wearing the trackJack with short sleeves underneath, which is why it treated the inside lower arm sections with a soft-touch fabric.
The cuffs and hem were built with narrow bands in order to secure the fit, and two zippered front pockets line the front. Additionally, two 'safety' zippered pockets are located on the inside of the front panels, placed on either side of the dual-opening main zipper. This full-length zipper was backed with a padded cover flap, serving to eliminate both chafing and wind penetration.
Assos finished off the DB.10 with a small logo at the chest and a reflective security stripe along the upper-rear panel.
The Assos DB.10 trackJack is available in seven sizes from X-Small to TIR and in the color Black.
