Assos ss.suisseOlympiakos_s7 Cycling Jersey $208.95
For more than 10 years, Assos has been a proud sponsor of the Swiss Cycling Federation. Year after year, this select group of Swiss cyclists continues to serve as product testers for the company, providing critical feedback that aids in the creation of the most advanced cycling apparel in the world. So, as a thanks to the team members, and to honor their involvement in last summer's London games, the design team at Assos' development lab decided to create a commemorative line of clothing. In addition to its matching cap and socks design, the ss.suisseOlympiakos_s7 Jersey was created for cyclists the world over as means to represent all aspects of Swiss cycling culture.
The majority of the ss.suisseOlympiakos_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 effect 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.suisseOlympiakos_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.suisseOlympiakos_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 ss.suisseOlympiakos_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.suisseOlympiakos_s7 Jersey is available in seven sizes from X-Small to TIR (which translates to XXX-Large) and in the color Suisse. 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.
