Assos - TiburuGiletEquipe
Every day from the base in southern Switzerland, Assos works to create apparel that lets us all ride that little bit further, whether you’re racing, crossing continents or simply commuting to work. The tiburuGiletEquipe is a spring/fall cycling vest that will fast become your favourite riding partner. A lightweight package of protection, the front panels of this cycling gilet use tech-savvy TwinDeck construction with its superior insulating and high-wicking properties to trap heat at your core where it’s needed most. Sitting in a sweet spot for when a shell is too much and a jersey not enough, the rear of the tiburuGiletEquipe uses RXQ, a high-stretch fabric from the RX soft-shell family that helps create a breathable and fast-drying microclimate. A camlock zip allows for ventilation and the welded bottom seam keeps this cycling vest in place, whilst also sealing-out weather and maintaining comfort. The fit is no less than perfect, featuring Assos' signature rear stabilizer panel, the tiburuGiletEquipe simply 'clicks' into place and sagging pockets are thing of the past. With reflective piping on the shoulders for riding in low light and the esteemed triple ramp concept pockets, this is a covet-worthy cycling vest to keep you warm during chilling mornings and cool descents, as well as keeping you cooler when the sun gets up or you start attacking those climbs.
