Until the launch of this tiburuGilet Laalalai women’s cycling vest one could argue that ASSOS haven’t catered for the entire cycling arsenal of female riders, but this proves they are continuing to make major inroads. With a female-tuned cut and signature ASSOS high performance design, this insulating gilet has strategic body-mapped insulation and mobility where necessary. This handy gilet is so much more than your run-of-the-mill cycling vest it is both more breathable and more packable with revised side panels, lighter shoulders with reflective piping and a lightweight rear made from the same high-performance fabric used in the équipe jersey. The front panels are constructed with twinDeck foil to bear the brunt of bad weather, and the gilet has a specific cut to prevent unwanted bunching when the pockets are full. You’ll thank Assos for the presence of the new easy-use cam lock zip and welded bottom seam, which add smoothness and reduce friction.


But what does all this technology mean to you? It’s a gilet that’s crafted to keep you warm during chilly mornings and cool descents, as well as ensuring you won’t overheat when the sun gets up or you start attacking those Strava QOMs.


Versatile and variable, this item is best teamed with a short-sleeved jersey and skinFoil baselayer, or forgo a jersey and go for this insulating cycling gilet as a top layer over a long-sleeved skinFoil baselayer. On the year’s coldest days, it’ll work as a mid-layer over a long-sleeved winter baselayer and under the sturmPrinz or another ASSOS winter jacket.


  • Dual layer construction on the fronl panel is breathable, packable and able to tackle fluctuations in the transitional seasons.

  • Thermal insulation and moisture management

  • Safety-conscious reflective stripes on the shoulders

  • racingFit is tighter and slightly more compressive. It will feel like a second skin while riding, although it is likely to feel restrictive when not in the riding position.

  • Triple ramp pockets

  • Taped wiast

  • Full length zip

  • Light absorbing rear elastic trim

Assos Size Guide

Assos is towards the 'race' end of cycling clothing - it is created with hard riding in mind and is therefore primarily designed with a snug, aerodynamic fit.

When you get the fit right, it is fabulous. Assos themselves describe it as having 'a very slimming, anatomical cut' and diplomatically suggest that 'if your build is less than slim or if you like your fit looser, go up in size'!

If you are still unsure, feel free to contact us.

            Caps

            Much of Assos' headwear is one size fits all. However, if there is a choice of sizes on the product you're interested in, this is how to gauge it:

              VeloVixen Size     Assos Size     Head Size  
              Small 0 48-53cm / 18.8-20.8"

              Large II 58-63cm / 22.9-24.8"

              Measure around the circumference of your head where your cap would sit.

              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.
