Assos is well renowned on the road for its fastidious attention to detail and use of high-quality materials which is why we're so excited that it's putting that same energy into off-road attire creating mountain bike-specific clothing with the XC Short-Sleeve Jersey in a women specific cut we have here. It understands the demands placed on clothing while trail riding is different than when riding on the road, namely creating apparel with more durability and better breathability. Assos tested the jersey, along with the rest of its off-road line, with its sponsored racers on the BMC MTB Racing team ensuring every detail was refined for off-road riding. Assos crafts this jersey out of its lightweight Type. 157 Stripe Tex to ensure maximum breathability on those long, exposed climbs. Its stretchy circular knit gives you a great range of motion, wicks sweat, and is quick to dry. Additionally, it provides UPF35 sun protection and has odorControl that keeps the jersey fresh, ideal if you've packed light on your travels. Under the arms, it uses an even more breathable 3-Mesh fabric under the arms and the jersey is cut for an off-road fit meaning a little more room since aerodynamics isn't really an issue and the reach to the bars isn't as great. If you need to add some additional airflow, the full-length cam lock zipper lets you easily do so. A carryover from the road, and perhaps it'll be appreciated even more here, is its Triple ramp pockets, finished in its color-blocked torpedoGrey, that sits at the ideal height for easy access and has a lip that when loaded, prevents items inside from littering the trails. An additional side zipper pocket keeps items like an ID or keys even more secure.
