If you're so much as looking at this jersey right now, we know that you're discerning and that you demand perfection from your cycling apparel. Well, with the Assos LS.Mille Long Sleeve Jersey, you've found it. Combining the most precise cut in the business with the best materials that money can buy, the LS.Mille Long Sleeve Jersey will have you breaking out the white gloves for handling while your bike sits jealously in the corner.
The Assos LS.Mille Long Sleeve Jersey is made from a sophisticated combination of four different fabrics. The predominant material, Type 151, is found on the front panels and arms, and represents Assos' innovation in body temperature regulation. When you're hot, it accelerates moisture-transfer from your skin, to the fabric, and to the air. But, when you cool down, it slows the process and uses body moisture as a means of retaining warmth. The side panels and armpits are made with an ultralight, four-way stretch spandex that allows the jersey to perfectly follow the contours of your body. Whether you're upright and climbing, or arched-over in the drops at speed, you can expect a perfect fit.
Like the SS.Mille Jersey, the back panel of the LS.Mille is purposely made with a breathable, yet inelastic, material. Through its inelasticity, the jersey gains a much-needed stability on your body. Throughout the middle of the back, this panel serves to supports the jersey, and prevents it from stretching vertically. Think of this panel as a frame or a support, preventing the jersey from sagging. It's more comfortable, and it makes inserting/removing gear from your pockets a breeze.
The LS.Mille Long Sleeve Jersey has an anatomic cut that prevents fabric from bunching on your body or fluttering in the wind. However, we should note that it doesn't fit as tightly as the SS.13 Jersey. This less-restrictive LS.Mille is what Assos calls its 'long-distance jersey.' And while this makes the LS.Mille seem relaxed, let us stress one thing: This is a high-performance, race-minded jersey. It's not baggy or floppy in the least. The torso and sleeve lengths will fit true to size, as will the chest. But, for example, the neck, waist, and arms won't be as tight as you've perhaps experienced from Assos before. For riders contending in the King of the Mountains competition, you'll be best served by buying the LS.Mille one size smaller than normal. Otherwise you should choose the same size in the LS.Mille that you'd normally wear.
Assos gave the LS.Mille a zippered 'safety' pocket to house your valuables. Also, the pocket, as well as the jersey, is MP3 compatible. For all of your normal cargo, the LS.Mille has three rear pockets. The jersey also features reflective accents throughout for a heightened sense of visibility in low-light conditions.
The Assos LS.Mille Long Sleeve Jersey is available in the colors Black Volkanga and White Panther. It also comes in six sizes from Small to TIR.
