Assos DB.33 dyoraJack $489.95
Maintain your style off of the bike.
At the heart of most high-end casual jackets, you'll find that proper attention has been paid to their silhouettes and fabric selections. No one in the cycling apparel world knows this better than Assos, which is why these elements stand as the foundation of its Dopo Bici line. Its new DB.33 dyoraJack was developed to be at top of its women's 'after bike' collection, as it's a technical soft shell jacket engineered to protect you from the elements while off of the bike. The DB.33 is a perfect illustration of the signature fit, functionality, and style that we've grown accustomed to from the Swiss apparel designer. Additionally, it's packed with those small details that continually serve to set Assos apart from the pack.
The DB.33 dyoraJack was constructed with several of Assos' exclusive technical fabrics. For the bulk of the body paneling, Assos' DB-specific 210 fabric was employed. This flexible, low-volume material works to keep your core both insulated and dry through its 'four-way stretch' composition. The stretchy outer-layer provides a thin layer of insulation and wind protection, while the inner-layer pulls moisture away from your skin and clothing 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. The shoulders and back were reinforced with additional water repellent fabric, while the elbows and lower arms were given a coarse, anti-abrasion material to increase the overall durability. For the side panels and underarms, Assos applied its stretchy Bi-elastic 3D-honeycomb mesh fabric. In addition to providing a full range of movement at these high-stress zones, this material is also an effective transporter of moisture. Accordingly, this furthers your overall comfort by maintaining your 'internal microClima' inside the jacket.
In the fit department, the DB.33 dyoraJack differs from Assos' cycling jackets in that it incorporates a more spacious paneling design that's been built specifically for your daily life away from the bicycle. The fabric panels were joined in a manner that contours to the female body without restricting movement. Along these lines, the separate shoulder and elbow panels were cut in a shape that mimics your anatomical structure, which aids in a fit that smoothly wraps your arms and upper torso. A thin 'free-standing' neck panel composes the DB.33's collar, which was specifically designed keep pressure off of the neck. And to complement this overall theme of comfort, Assos covered the inside seams of the DB.33 to provide smooth, chafe-free contact with your skin.
The cuffs were treated with zippered openings, and both the hem and cuffs were built with narrow bands in order to secure the fit. Two zippered front pockets line the front, and two 'safety' zippered pockets line the inside of the front panels on either side of full-length zipper.
Assos finished off the DB.33 with a small logo at the chest and a reflective security stripe along the upper rear panel.
The Assos DB.33 dyoraJack is available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the color Black.
