Assos brought all of its road-racing knowledge when it designed the Ss.capeepicxcjersey. This moisture-wicking top layer is specifically designed to keep you cool when partnered with an Assos Skinfoil baselayer, which uses moisture to either insulate or cool, depending on outside temperatures.
For its Sscapeepicxcjersey, Assos uses a synthetic stretch fabric. This smooth polyester material works to transfer moisture at varying rates. When your body is hot, and your perspiration levels are high, the material reacts by accelerating moisture transfer from your skin to the fabric's surface, where it dries quickly. Inversely, when your body cools down, the opposite results, where the evaporation process slows down, using body moisture as a means of retaining warmth. This process is augmented with one of Assos’ Skinfoil baselayers.
The jersey was made with a regular, body-mimicking fit that follows the contours of your torso. Of course, this jersey, like all Assos jerseys, has been designed to accommodate the body within the cycling position. Accordingly, you'll find that the fit feels tight and oddly contoured while standing. However, the moment that you stretch to the hoods or get into the drops, you'll feel that signature Assos "click," and your ride will be guaranteed to be absent of any bunching, chafing, or pinching.
Three traditional pockets line the lower back panel. Other finishing touches include rear reflective visibility stripes, a covered, full-front zip, and an elastic/silicone hem at the rear.

- Q & A
True to Size
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The jersey fits well. I typically get a SMALL in Assos, this jersey is no different. My measurements are: 5'7", 135lb, 37.5" chest.
Horrible & condensing return policy
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
The sizing is small. I have 3 other Assos jerseys the same size and they fit perfectly. I would think MTB sizing would be cut a little more loose and not smaller. The next bad news is Competitive Cyclist return policy. You have to pay for your own returns. The return policy gives you two options. Option One: print label for a discounted return (it's $7 for a return) or Option Two: hand write your own label and pay full price. Seriously it says that. Competitive Cyclist is certainly no Amazon, but as a on-line retailer they should have free returns. Had I bought the jersey directly from Assos, Assos would pay for the return. I get a $7 penalty for doing business with Competitive Cyclist.
