By now, the White Cross of Switzerland is most likely burned into your memory. The reasons for this are simple. With past riders like Cancellara and current ones like Schurter, Switzerland has routinely dominated the road and off-road podiums. And this isn't even mentioning one of Switzerland's greatest national treasures, Assos. Representing its home and its heritage, Assos created a jersey displaying its national pride, the Suisse Fed Short-Sleeve Jersey. Assos' Suisse Fed Short-Sleeve Jersey is similar to the ones worn by the Swiss riders at Worlds. The main fabric is known as Dual Tex and it represents Assos' innovation to breathability and quick drying. When you sweat, it accelerates the moisture transfer away from your skin, directly to the quick-drying surface of the jersey. It's also snag resistant and possesses a high degree of mechanical stretch with UPF30 and odorControl. The underarm panels use its Open Mesh material, a light, flexible fabric for increased airflow. In terms of cut, the Suisse Fed Short-Sleeve Jersey uses its regularFit. So, it doesn't possess the trademark, tight fit of Assos' racingFit, but the pattern doesn't lead to a fit as relaxed as its comfortFit either. Instead, the jersey holds in all of the right places, especially while in the saddle, while still leaving you with some wiggle room. For on-the-fly heat dumps, Assos included a full-length front zipper. And for storage of ride essentials, the jersey features its Triple Ramp Pockets of lightweight and stretchy Sens Classic Tex. The three pockets are located for ease of access, and when loaded, feature a fabric lid for added security of the contents.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
