Details

The Assos womens UMA GT Wind Jacket could become your best friend on a bike. They've managed to create an ultra lightweight, no-phaff item that will take care of you in cool wind or a brief shower - and then pack down so small you'll hardly notice it in your jersey pocket.

It's a key piece for Assos' in-house test team, with its race-tuned front covering of windproof Foil Ultra material and beautifully stretchy and breathable redesigned side panels. The double layer collar and raglan sleeves make it even more comfortable and stretchy while you're riding.

As a cyclist, you'll know how important it is to have a second layer to throw on, no matter what the forecast. Assos' UMA GT Wind Jacket is one of the most packable, versatile and robust that you'll find, and is cut in their revised Long Distance design for a little more space than traditional Assos race cut tops.

Size Guide

Measure around the widest part of your chest, just under the arms.

Who's Behind It?

For many years now, ASSOS of Switzerland has been one of the most respected names in cycling. The only catch, from a female cycling perspective, was their notoriously... how would you say?... 'traditional' approach to marketing their women's kit.

But in 2016, everything changed. As they say themselves, it went 'from bad to badass'.

Gone was the risqué photography, in came strong imagery of strong women doing serious cycling. Their imagery and ethos now matches the exceptional quality of their clothing. It does justice to their 40 years of cycling experience and their true passion and expertise in what they produce.

As they sponsor their first women's pro team in 2018, Cyclance Pro Cycling, we have nothing but respect for how they have turned things around for female cyclists.

How did it start? In 1976, ASSOS was founded by Toni Maier with the first carbon fiber bicycle frame. Toni spent painstaking time testing the bike in the wind tunnel, but it eventually dawned on him that it was the riders' clothing that was the main cause of drag.

Toni naturally then turned his attention to kit - and promptly invented the first Lycra® cycling shorts. It's their bottom halves that they are still most recognised for. Fast forward to today, and ASSOS have now contributed to over 350 gold medals at world championships and Olympic games.

ASSOS works as hard as any brand we know with its suppliers and test team to produce fabrics and fits that make it - in our view - the Rolls Royce of cycling kit. They've been at the vanguard of many of the really big innovations that have shaped the evolution of cycling, including the first sublimation of a cycling jersey in 1980, the first elastic interface cycling short insert in 2001 and the 'fastest bodysuit on earth' in 2004.

Today, ASSOS has multiple sponsorships of World Tour teams and riders. It's a brand for the purist - for passionate cyclists who appreciate the very best. We're delighted to have them as part of the VeloVixen stable of great brands.
