Assos Equipe RS EVO Rain Jacket
Part of the Assos racing range, EQUIPE RS, this EVO Rain Jacket is an outer layer with truly impressive qualities. The successor to the original EQUIPE RS, this jacket retains its best qualities, namely the racingFit and waterproof Schloss Tex fabric and has had small updates to create the ultimate performance jacket for wet weather riding and racing. At the wrists and neck, taped seams minimise chafing and elsewhere act as an extra barrier to the rain. Two lower rear slots allow easy access to your jersey pockets beneath and double up as ventilation slots and the back of the jacket has a dropped tail to prevent soaking from road spray.
As well as the waterproof fabric construction, a DWR treatment and a waterBlock hem that uses internal silicone dots act as additional barriers. When you need some extra air you can simply unzip from either the top or bottom and if the conditions improve the EQUIPE RS is small enough to pack away in a jersey pocket.
