Assos - BlitzVest Mille GT
A windproof and lightweight shell vest to preserve your core temperatureWhat‘s different?
As entry-level windproof shell vest, this is a pared-down product that embodies the essentials. Assos have calibrated a textile construction that ensures you get the highest level of protection against the elements for a decent price and supreme packability. This sleeveless design consists of Foil Ultra textile, which has proven its worth in notable products from within the year-round climaX range, as well as side panels of windproof Glossy. Assos have also incorporated an all-new dual layer construction in the neck to improve elasticity and comfort while riding.
This stripped-back engineering and construction has one purpose: create a packable, ultra lightweight, water-repellent shell, which is equally at home tucked in your pocket or on your body. Cut in the revised regularFit, this piece has been designed for churning out daily miles, meaning it is ideal for those rides where you need sufficient protection, minimal volume and maximum performance.
Now coming in the classic blackSeries or the more safety-conscious visibilityGreen, this shell will rightly become a staple for year-round riding.
When to use?
This piece has been designed to give you adequate protection during those cooler moments on your ride. Whatever the time of the year we all face cool starts, chilly descents, or simply moments when the weather changes. Assos‘ objective was to ensure this product is both high performing and ultra packable, so it fits perfectly in your jersey pocket when not in use. Assos have zip it over as an extra layer above a skinFoil baselayer and jersey.
Key features of the BlitzVest Mille GT
Less compressive than the racingFit, but more fitted than the comfortFit, the regularFit body mapping design bridges the gap between these two fits and comes in as the ultimate balance between comfort and performance.
- Foil Ultra:
A windproof, water-repellent, rip-stop, lightweight woven fabric consisting of polyamide.
This warp-knit windproof textile comes to the fore on the side panels to provide stretch and breathability.
- Collar construction:
The double layer of fabric in the neck improves elasticity and comfort.
This piece of apparel has been designed to be as quiet as possible with a rustle-free fabric.
As not every day comes with unbroken sunshine, Assos have treated this product to the DWR (Durable Water Repellency) to protect you from rainfall.
- Full-length zip:
For on-the-fly outfit tuning, this piece sports a full-length zip to add flexibility and versatility to your ride. Put it on when needed.
- ultra lightweight, ultra packable:
As cyclists, Assos understand the needs and restrictions that you face on every ride. With limited pocket space and a need to accommodate the essentials, Assos have diligently worked to create products with the lowest possible weight and great packability. As no one wants to feel like a packhorse on rides in changeable conditions, Assos have strived to strike the balance between weight, volume and performance. The approach is always to craft pieces that will exceed expectations as your back-pocket insurance policy. This approach involves minimal volume and minimal seams.
