Built to the specifications requested by BMC team riders, this technical team-issue jersey from Assos is what riders zip into during the warmer race days. Working closely with these athletes to further refine all their 2018 short-sleeve jerseys, Assos has produced this superlight aerodynamic jersey that addresses the minute fit and comfort details that become noticeable only after countless hours in the saddle. This jersey features airy miniCheck Tex for the front panel, which is a highly elastic 3D knit fabric that’s been specifically developed with breathability in mind. The rear employs Dribbling fabric, which stabilizes the jersey with limited vertical-stretch composition, especially helpful when the pockets are loaded up. The aggressive in-saddle position these riders take also informed their material choice for the arms, dropped collar, rear shoulder panel, and pockets, all of which needed to be as buttery smooth and flexible as possible. Assos' fine-gauge warp knit Push Pull textile was just the ticket, providing high UV protection (UPF 50+) along with quick-drying, two-way stretch properties.
