Assos LS.skinFoil Winter Base Layer
The Assos Winter base layer provides a garment that has a heavier medium weight which is good for increasing the thermal value of a shell or jacket or to be worn under a vest as an alternative to a long sleeve jersey for warmer days on the bike. The collar has a zipper for moisture control
Like all skinFoil base layers, the Winter is a one piece garment assembly that is made possible due to modern construction techniques due to a custom design yarn matrix. it is a one piece, seamless and tubular constructed garment that has replaced the older generation of pre-shaped and anatomically patterned products.
The skinFoil provides perfect, second skin-like fit. No bunching or thick seams, just a natural extension or added layer to your skin. The custom yarn matrix build also allows for Assos's bodyMap design. This refers to the use of different fabric thickness, structure and elasticity depending on the body area. This enhances performance, breathability and moisture management. The push-pull nature of the loft fabrics used offer an environment perfect for wicking and body climate regulation. The skinFoil is both antistatic and antibacterial. Quite possibly the world's best base layer. Availible in black only, choose your size.

Typically I purchase Assos clothing in a large size, Im 5-8 and weigh in at 150 pounds give or take a pound.. I do this because I happen not to like skin tight layering and Ive been satisfied with the fit and finish of Assos cycling apparel thus far, so when purchased the Assos Winter Base Layer in a large size I thought it would be okay because typically their products run tight. What I discovered with this product is that the sleeves were a bit on the long side requiring me to roll back some the material -- no problem. I have to say, in all candor, that I was surprised how very comfortable this skin base layer worked and felt. In all likelyhood I still believe I could have gotten into a medium but Im completely satisfied with the fit and finish of this product and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a quality Skin Foil Winter Base Layer! In summary, the sleeves were longer than I would have thought but Im glad I purchased it.
Pros A GREAT ADDITION TO MY WINTER CYCLING WARDROBE!
