|Assos Skin Layer a base layer collection for all seasons.|
|The new Skin Layer base layers are intended to be worn with specific kits suggested by Assos although of course you can wear them with whatever kit you like and also change dependent upon personal preferences. To slightly confuse matters the new range has four distinct items aimed at use within summer, spring/autumn, winter and an additional deep winter (Ultraz) base for riding in extreme conditions.|
| Assos has completely redesigned this first layer with a new range of fabrics, a much lighter knit and a seamless construction. All this is to allow each base layer to offer more consistent thermoregulation and greater comfort for every riding conditions.
One of the critical features of the new fabrics is the inclusion of carbon fibres to more efficiently draw moisture off your skin, while the deep-winter layer has wool added for natural, heat-trapping warmth.
|Functional with an understated offbeat design and seasonal colour-coding, the Skin Layers are designed to do everything they can to streamline your performance, without any distractions. “It’s in ASSOS DNA".
The new ASSOS Skin Layer base layers are subtle in their design but there’s a reason behind the minimal look: printing on fibres like this would impact the performance and they simply wouldn’t be as quick-drying. The colour-coding of this line from the neck down will come in useful when you’re heading out for a ride in a hurry.”
|Another major topic is fit. Box-fresh Skin Layers will feel tight, but that’s how they function best.
The new ASSOS Skin Layers mark a new era for athletes of all disciplines: These are made by cyclists, for cyclists, but we know that our riders practice other sports. You don’t have to be a cyclist to wear a Skin Layer; they’re a viable option for cross-country skiing, running, or hiking.
ACDC care tip: Given the physical characteristics of the fibres, the Skin Layers are best washed at a low temperature with a minimal amount of detergent. The ASSOS Active Wash is intended for precisely this purpose; as it’s anallergic, it’s ideal for those with sensitive skin.
