Into the wind.
From the window, the skies look clear and the sun is shining, but you know that dressing for your early season ride won't be quite as simple as looking out the window. A bank of dark clouds conspires to drop the air temperature by at least a few degrees at some point, and if you listen carefully, you can hear a determined low growl of the wind. It may be wishful thinking, but this reminds you of classics weather. Equip yourself for a ride through the hell of your own neck of the woods in the Assos Sj.works_teamShelljacket_evo8. Though you may not be riding across Northern France among the ranks of van Avermaet, Sagan, Degenkolb, or Boonen, you'll still stay shielded from a harsh breeze under this lightweight wind jacket.
With graphics inspired by Assos' partnership with Mercedes Motorsport, the Sj.works_teamShelljacket was designed specifically for the single-seat auto racing team's internal cycling club. That means that rather than a contoured, race-ready fit, it employs a more training-appropriate cut that fits easily over a jersey. Despite the layer-friendly cut, the fit experts at Assos still manage to eliminate the potential for flapping, excess fabric, without subjecting you to guilt during those first early weeks of the season, when your layer of winter insulation hasn't yet given way to the spring classics form enjoyed by your idols.
