Assos Cycling Fall/Winter 2022
Assos is a company synonymous with premium cycling clothing that is as stylish as it is technical. Any seasoned cyclist will be aware of Assos's reputation for quality, and many will have wardrobes containing Assos jerseys and Assos cycling shorts.
The recently released Fall/Winter collection continues to build on Assos's premium catalogue, offering cyclists everywhere pro-level garments. Updates to their bibshorts and bibtights now offer riders even more comfort and warmth in the cooler months, so you no longer need to banish your road bike to the turbo trainer until March! Technology in the Assos jerseys has also been improved to offer insulating front panels and more breathable backs to maintain that perfect temperature while in the saddle.
In order to remain safe in the darker months of Autumn and Winter it is important to make sure you are visible, particularly if you are riding on the roads. Although a good set of bike lights is probably the best way to do this, it certainly doesn't hurt to wear some road clothing that will make you more easily seen. Assos's Fall/Winter range for 2022 contains plenty of jackets and jerseys that not only use bright colouring to attract drivers' attention, but also have reflective elements.
The Mille GT System (Autumn/Fall)
The Assos Mille GT system is comprised of a number of important clothing pieces such as bib knickers, a jersey and a base layer that are designed to work together for the best performance. The Mille GT system is mainly best suited to Autumn and warmer Winter days as it is lightly insulated to stave off the cooler winds but not providing the full protection from the elements that the likes of the Equipe range offers.
With that said, the Mille GT system does contain garments that are more suited to the coldest months, including the Mille GT Winter Jacket Evo - Fluo, which features a range of high-tech materials to protect against the harshest elements while retaining breathability.
The Uma GT System (Autumn/Fall)
Assos's UMA GT system is tailored to women who demand function and performance as well as style from their road clothing. High-tech materials and clever features are always a part of Assos's women's clothing, which can be seen throughout the Uma GT range.
The Uma GT system comprises of half knickers with Assos's own C2 pad, a long sleeve jersey, a base layer, some midweight socks and some toe covers to keep the cooler weather at bay while allowing breathability to ensure your performance is not compromised.
As with the men's Mille GT system, this outfit can be tailored to warmer weather with the substitution of some Assos bib shorts, or for colder weather with some Assos bib tights.
The Equipe R System (Winter)
When the weather turns to its worst but you've had all of the rollers and Zwift you can take, the Equipe R system is ready to step in to keep your wheels spinning. Base layers, tights and jackets designed to work perfectly to keep the warmth in, and the rain and wind out are the heart of this range.
The Equipe R Habu Jacket is made from high-tech fabrics and contructions to keep the weather at bay, and high-visibility designs help to keep you seen in the worst conditions. The Equipe R Habu bib tights use the same S9 pad that can be found in some Assos bibshorts, providing comfort for as long as you stay in the saddle.
The Honorable Mentions
Assos Chamois Cream
The Assos cycling clothing range is not the only thing that the Swiss company excel at. Often overlooked by those new to cycling, but relied on by veterans, a good chamois cream can mean the difference between a good ride and a miserable one. The Assos chamois cream is the most popular embrocation we sell at Westbrook Cycles due to its quality and value for money.
Active Wear Cleanser
There's no denying that Assos clothing is expensive, even if it is worth every penny. When investing in such quality, it therefore makes sense to look after it well, to prolong its life and ensure that the garments are performing as well as they can be. Assos's Active Wear Cleanser will make sure your clothes are clean and odour-free, while improving breathability.
Whether you ride a road race bike, a gravel bike or a mountain bike, if you are serious about your riding Assos will have the perfect clothing for your needs. You can view our Assos sale products here, and the complete Assos range can be viewed here.
