Equipe RS Spring Fall Jacket
The fickle weather of shoulder season can mean packing layers into your pockets to account for the swing in temperatures or trying to grimace through intervals with not enough insulation for the first half of the ride. The Equipe RS Spring Fall jacket from Assos expertly balances the insulation and breathability we need for hard efforts on cool days, pairing windproof and venting features to keep our temperature regulated from ride start to end.
Assos’ twinDeck construction pairs the jacket’s main breathable textile on the exterior and a polypropylene terry on the interior to promote air flow and insulate. Featured on the front panel and back of the Equipe RS, twinDeck wicks moisture away from the body so we don’t become chilled and clammy during the cooldown. The yellow-accented air valves on the fronts of the shoulders allow cool air to vent into the jacket during hard efforts. We can maintain the aerodynamics of a zippered jacket, while cool air draws in to regulate our temperature. When the temperature or effort increases considerably, the dual zipper allows us to dump heat from either the top or bottom of the jacket as needed.
For optimal comfort and aerodynamics, Assos employs their Sonic-SN fabric on the sleeves. Fitting close to the skin, the fabric wicks moisture and provides light insulation. The sleeve is finished with a raw-cut cuff to lay flat under gloves on colder days. The three rear pockets provide plenty of room to store gloves and fuel and have a sleek textile lid to help things stay put while on the ride, and the ribbed hem keeps in the jacket in place and secure.
