ASSOS MEN'S JERSEYS - SHORT SLEEVE
Most of us are probably too young to remember the days where cycling's popularity dwarfed all other sports. However, as a refresher course, at the center stage of this infatuation stood the six-days race. Some of the world's most renowned sporting arenas were built, solely, to house the spectacle of riders racing for six straight days on the track. It's this nearly-forgotten tradition of cycling that inspired the Assos Six-Days Pack. The Pack enables you to look the role of the traditionalist without sacrificing any of the modern amenities that we've all come to love from Assos. Start growing out your handlebar mustache, breakout the pomade, and gear up to ride.
Assos' Six-Days Pack comes equipped with a pair of socks, a hat, and a jersey. And although the general aesthetic is steeped in neoclassical cycling romanticism, behind the throwback design of the jersey lies the Assos staple jersey, the SS.Uno. Better known as the Uni jersey's replacement, the SS.Uno is constructed from the ultra-wicking and malleable Plasma fabric. The material selection promotes a full range of torso movement, and guarantees that the jersey will hardly register on the scale. The SS.Uno also features a full-length front zipper and a zippered security pouch on the rear panel.
The socks fall right above the ankle, and use a mesh upper to keep your feet cool. Assos also reinforced the heel and toe of the socks to minimize hot spots or the possibility of chafing. The cap follows a distinctly European design, with a deeper coverage over your head. Most importantly, the cap fits snugly under a helmet, and it absorbs sweat well before it reaches your eyes.
The Assos Six-Days Pack is available in size Small and in the color Yellow.
