The Intermediate S7 jersey is a unique piece to both the Assos range and any manufacturers selection of long sleeve jerseys. It is a thin, long sleeve Lycra jersey with a built in stratGon airBlock front panel. This means it is like wearing a long sleeve jersey and wind vest, except in one thin and lightweight package. Wear it alone or add layers to it like, sleeveless base layers, long sleeve base layers, arm warmers or shells and jackets and you will realize the true value of this garment. Once you understand its intended use and potential, it should become a staple in your wardrobe.
The arm material is thick enough to keep the chill off while not too thick, so it can be worn in not-so-cold conditions. The ideal weight for layering underneath. The front of the jersey employs soft and sterchable strataGon airBlock fabric which repels cold air from your core. Side and rear panels are again, thin lycra designed for potential layering. Storage is handled by three open pockets with one security zip pocket on top of the left open storage pocket. Two reflective rear piping hems and a sealed, full length front zipper complete the package.
Assos introduced its renowned AEPD anatomic fit system into the Intermediate S7 design. In short, this means all of the panels are anatomically correct when in the cycling position. When you first put the jersey on, it should feel tight in the front shoulders and loose in the rear/back of the shoulders while the arms a touch long. Assume the position on the bike and the jersey comes to life with an ideal fit and second skin-like feel.
