Indispensible windproof, lightweight shell jacket formulated for female riders
Few riders head out on their bike without a windproof shell. Whatever the time of year, they’re a staple part of your riding arsenal. For female riders, Assos have now patterned a pared-down windproof shell jacket for essential protection and brought it firmly into the Assos stable at a very fair price point.
Now a key piece for the in-house test team, Assos have employed race-tuned Foil Ultra textile on the front, while the sides panels have been reworked to incorporate the high stretch and breathability of the proprietary Glossy textile. The dual-layer collar construction and raglan sleeves improve elasticity and
comfort while riding.
Those same cyclists who never leave without a windproof shell also value packability, which demands a product that can easily be stowed in your pocket while riding. The UMA GT wind jacket meets those demands. Cut in the revised women’s Long Distance design, this is a comfort-focused, easy-to-throwon
piece for essential protection, minimal volume and maximum performance.
This shell will rarely be left at home during the warmer months.
When to use?
This piece has been designed to give you crucial protection during cooler moments on your ride, such as rolling out before the sun has risen, starting a chilly descent or merely being prepared for dips in the temperature. Its design is incredibly low volume, meaning this shell jacket is ultra packable for stowing in your jersey pocket. It works best over a skinFoil baselayer and jersey combination.
