If you find a better jersey, let us know.
As a tribute to its loyal female customers, and as a celebration of the year 2013, Assos developed the eye-catching SS. Lady ellisse Jersey. The number 13 holds a special place in the Assos community -- it symbolizes the perfect ride, Assos nirvana, and the notion that 'riding your bicycle is the key to personal fulfillment and well-being.'
The jersey's graphics might seem unusual compared to the monochromatic Assos line that you've grown accustomed to but, like all of the Assos products, there's exact reasoning behind the new, bright colorways. According to Assos, the names and colors that have been selected are inspired by great operas. So, when you wear the fun, musically-inspired, and limited edition SS. Lady ellisse, Assos hopes that you experience your own level of colorful riding bliss.
Now, if you're familiar with the Assos catalog, you'll immediately notice that the SS. Lady ellisse is based on the legendary SS. Lady jersey. This means that it's constructed with the same technically-advanced, proprietary fabrics, only with the addition of Assos' light and highly elastic Plasma fabric. The jersey's front panels have been constructed using its Plasma and Superlight fabrics, which wick moisture incredible well and keep you cool, dry, and comfortable in warmer riding temperatures. At the back panel,. you'll find that the jersey has received Assos' patented, honeycomb-structured Exoskeleton platform, which provides stability and support to your back while in the riding position. Additionally, it prevents the jersey from shifting when your pockets are fully loaded, and yes, it also assists in the Assos' signature 'click' when you're tucked into the drops. These incredibly comfortable fabrics are complemented by spandex shoulder panels and mesh armpits, ensuring a free range of movement for the movements of cycling.
And back to the aforementioned 'click,' the SS. Lady ellisse's fit is anatomically shaped for the female body while in the riding position, or what Assos calls, its Assos Ergonomic Patter Design. According to Assos, the ultimate goal when designing the SS. Lady ellisse was to 'provide total comfort when in the saddle,' and to allow you to reach your maximum physical capacity. In order to accomplish these objectives, the fabrics chosen for this jersey incorporate a high level of smooth, stretch Lycra, which translates directly to a fit that's nonrestrictive. The pre-shaped fabric panels also contour to your shape, providing you with unmatched levels of comfort and upper body support.
Finishing touches on the SS. Lady ellisse include a full front zipper, two rear pockets (with a central safety pocket), reflective accents, and an elastic hem at the back to keep the jersey right where it should be.
The Assos SS. Lady ellisse Jersey is available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Adua, Callas, Norma, Tosca, and Violetta. According to the Assos Layering System ClimaRange, this jersey falls into the summer.2 category. In English, this means that Assos recommends wearing it from around 75 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. And to complete the look of the ClimaRange, Assos also recommends pairing it with its interactive summer skinFoil bodyInsulator and T FI.Lady_S5 shorts.

Love it but the XS is tiny
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: XS
I took a chance on the XS since that's the only size that's left. Darling jersey and very well made, but would have fit me when I was about 10. Obviously returned. : (
I Look Like a Super Hero!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Large
Looks even better on than it does on the site. This is a great jersey, but beware it fits small. I ordered the medium and it was skin tight (5'-3 34D Large shoulders) I don't want to do 60 or 70 mile rides in racing skins so I got the large. Long enough not to get butt crack while riding, but not a tunic either.
"Adua" & coordinating shorts
Brilliant color + great visibility by both drivers & competitors!
Assos Jersey & Shorts
Great fit for most all body types, even if not a 'super cyclist'...but it can help you get there more comfortably & stylish. Fit is awesome and most comfortable.
*Looks better in person than this self pic via reflection in a mirror!
Top of The Line!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
For those who haven't yet tried this line...it is absolutely everything the description says! Breathability is A-1; Fit is perfect; pocket accessibility A+; easily zips up/down on the fly with no fussing (no fighting with the cam-loc); and for me, I love the intense, rich colors of this unique design!
Have worn this on some truly hot & humid rides, and while I would have done better to have had a sleeveless jersey, this short sleeve version still performed quite well with the ventilated armpits.
Fit is True-to-Size. Quality is top notch; all seams perfect.
For once, you truly 'get what you pay for'!!!
