Assos - XC
Make light work of tough off-road riding with this reworked XC-specific mountain bike jersey for female riders
Assos understand that the demands of riding off-road are very different to riding on the road. Those slow grinding climbs on hot days mean that you need a jersey that is more breathable, yet gives you ample protection when you hit the trails. This is where the reworked XC short sleeve jersey woman comes into play. Crafted for female athletes, this is ready to endure long days in the saddle while keeping sharp for rapid gravel commutes or loops.
Crafted using proven lightweight Stripe fabric, breathability is a given to ensure you’ll keep cool on the steepest ramps. Under the arms Assos have positioned ultra breathable 3-mesh fabric, plus added their lauded triple ramp pockets in a sartorially on-point torpedoGrey for the ultimate security while riding over rough terrain. Finally, to ensure it was fit for purpose, it has been stringently tested by the most demanding and experienced racers on the BMC MTB Racing team, which confirms that this tech-savvy XC jersey is more than ready for your next blast on your local trails.

Features of the XC women's jersey
- Type.157 Stripe Tex: A breathable, stretchy circular knit, proprietary Stripe textile is quick to dry, fast to wick and superior in its performance on this summer jersey. Supreme ventilation, UPF35 protection and odorControl built in.
- 3-Mesh: Assos' brand new, bi-stretch circular knit features on the underarms for added breathability.
- ‘Triple ramp’ concept pockets: Using all of their riding experiences Assos have created a new pocket design in torpedoGrey with the optimal height for ease of access and added the distinguished ‘triple ramp’ concept that prevents any contents from escaping while riding hard. Internal seams fashion a barely there closure to keep your wares in check. Now featuring an additional zipped security pocket.
- Full-length cam lock zip: Slim, light zip for individually adjusting to the conditions.
- OFFROAD XC RACING LINE: Assos understand that the fit of your apparel is key to its performance. When they engineer a product to perform under the most extreme conditions — such as while racing — Assos employ a tighter and slightly more compressive fit. It will feel like a second skin while riding, although it is likely to feel restrictive when not in the riding position. Consequently, it results in a higher performance, improved comfort and less drag.
- Female-specific cut: Anatomically mapped fit. Ensures the garment works in harmony with a woman’s body on the bike.
