The Assos winterPlus base layer is the tops of the pops when it comes to keeping your core temp stabilized during cold weather. It features a heavier 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. If was any thicker it could almost be considered a standalone jersey. Beyond using as a strict layering piece, think outside of the box and use it under a vest, like a lot of Assos enthusiasts and Excel staff do, to extend the life of thie winterPlus into a 3 season garment.
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.
