Show them the boot.
For cyclists, the boot-shaped country often stirs up an array of emotions. Assos sees this as a good thing, which is why it applied the country's flag to the chest of its new SS.neoPro Italy Jersey. With a fresh design that blends new fabrics and colorways into a clean silhouette, the neoPro is sure to become a staple in your apparel rotation this season.
Taking a "zero impact" approach with this new jersey, Assos constructed it from panels made of 100% recycled P.E.T. bottles. This converts to a smooth polyester material that works to transfer moisture at varying rates. When your body is hot, and your perspiration levels are high, the material reacts by accelerating moisture transfer from your skin to the fabric's surface, where it dries quickly. Inversely, when your body cools down, the opposite results, where the evaporation process slows down, using body moisture as a means of retaining warmth.
The SS.neoPro jersey was made with a regular, body-mimicking fit that follows the contours of your torso. Of course, this jersey, like all Assos jerseys, has been designed to accommodate the body within the cycling position. Accordingly, you'll find that the fit feels tight and oddly contoured while standing. However, the moment that you stretch to the hoods or get into the drops, you'll feel that signature Assos "click," and your ride will be guaranteed to be absent of any bunching, chafing, or pinching. Three traditional pockets line the lower back panel, and a new tall collar and lengthened sleeve design provides added coverage while in the saddle. Other finishing touches include rear reflective visibility stripes, a covered, full-front zip, and an elastic/silicone hem at the rear.
The Assos SS.neoPro Italy Jersey - Short Sleeve - Men's is available in sizes X-Small to X-Large and in the Flag Italy color. According to the Assos Layering System ClimaRange, this jersey falls into both the spring.1 summer.2 categories. In English, this means that Assos recommends wearing it from around 65 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

A jersey made from 100% recycled material is something I can get behind. Great design and good fit. This is not the Assos you are used to though. The fabric is from recycled polyethylene terephthalate, so it is not as soft as the SS.Campionissimo or the SS.Mangussta. That said, I still love the jersey and it regulates fine for temps in the 70-80âs, after that I would recommend the others above. Iâm still giving this 5 stars for the design and recycled fabrics. Nice work Assos and I hope to see more recycled gear coming for you. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions and/or concerns about fit for this or any other Assos pieces.
