Assos SS.mangussta_s7 Jersey - Short-Sleeve - Men's $208.95
Assos' new SS.mangussta_s7 Jersey was designed with the same attention to the most finite detail that you expect from Assos, only with the added benefits of new fabrics and a more comfortable, streamlined fit. In fact, the Assos SS.mangussta_s7 Jersey is based on the same design platform as the Swiss National Team's short sleeve jersey (also made by Assos), which means that you get the same technical fabrics as Cancellara and his teammates, but in colorways that're more suited to your personal style.
The majority of the SS.mangussta_s7 Jersey is constructed from the brand new Assos Textile Lab Development - Type 151 fabric. This innovative material was designed with body temperature regulation in mind, as its composition works to transfer moisture at varying rates. When your body is hot, and your perspiration levels are high, the material reacts by accelerating moisture transfer from your skin to the fabric's surface, where it dries quickly. Inversely, when your body cools down, the opposite results, where the evaporation process slows down, using body moisture as a means of retaining warmth. For additional body temperature control and increased moisture wicking, the SS.mangussta_s7's underarm panels have been constructed with Assos' highly elastic, lightweight mesh. The placement of this material provides you with both a free range of motion and enhanced breathability.
In terms of fit, the SS.mangussta_s7 jersey is situated between the SS.Uno_s7 and SS.Mille. This translates to a contoured fit that isn't too loose or too tight, complementing larger body types and those who prefer a smoothly stretching, supportive top over a compressive, race-cut jersey. Of course, this jersey, like all Assos jerseys, has been designed to accommodate the body within the cycling position. Accordingly, you'll find that the fit feels tight and oddly contoured while standing. However, the moment that you stretch to the hoods or get into the drops, you'll feel that signature Assos "click," and your ride will be guaranteed to be absent of any bunching, chafing, or pinching.
With two different fabrics, and twenty-four parts and components, comprising the S.mangussta_s7 jersey, you're able to ride assured that no detail was overlooked during the design process. Examples of this become apparent when looking at the small, but necessary, features that're built into the jersey. In addition to the three lower back panel pockets, a zippered "safety pocket" was sewn onto the right rear pocket, allowing you to stash your keys and cash, as well as route your headphone wires through the inside of the jersey. Other finishing touches include rear reflective visibility stripes, a covered, full-front zip, and an elastic/silicone hem at the rear.
The Assos SS.mangussta_s7 Jersey is available in seven sizes from X-Small to TIR (which translates to XXX-Large) and in the colors Black Volkanga, Blue Calypso, Red Swiss, White Panther, and Yellow Volt. According to the Assos Layering System ClimaRange, this jersey falls into both the spring.1 summer.2 categories. In English, this means that Assos recommends wearing it from around 65 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

i wear a size S in their Mille jersey due...
i wear a size S in their Mille jersey due to the looser cut, but wear a size M in all other Assos gear (bibs, jackets, long sleeve jerseys, etc). Should i stick with a size M in the Mangusta?
Awesome Piece of Kit
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This Mangussta jersey is the best jersey Assos has yet to put out. The fit is improved over the Uno, Mille, especially the arms and the pockets. I'm 6'2" 175lb and wear a size large in the Mangussta where I wear medium in the Uno and Mille. The pockets sag too low on the Mille and the materials and design of the Uno are of lower quality. The Mangussta fits me beautifully and it's also a smart looking piece of kit. Not too flashy or busy. It looks classy. The real testament to this jersey is something you will hopefully never experience. I crashed hard going downhill and slid across the road on my back and shoulder. When I picked myself up I was bleeding everywhere and my brand new Mangussta and NeoPro shorts were filthy and blood soaked. I was surprised to find my Jersey and shorts were not ripped! I soaked the clothes in Oxy Clean overnight and washed them. I won't say they were as good as new but they looked pretty damn good and I must admit I feel a little bit badass riding with some scuffs on my jersey. Crashing is bad enough without ruining a $400 kit. Assos makes tough and durable clothing. Well worth the money if the fit is right.
Loved this jersey, but needed XL
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Need XL, not XLG...another confusing aspect of ASSOS is the sizing from the XLG (means XXL) and I,II,III sizing.
