Honoring Assos' partnership with Mercedes Motorsport, the brand's SS.works_teamJersey_evo8 represents the unquenchable thirst for innovation that single-seat auto racing and road cycling share. Dripping with a mix of egos, impossible finesse, and either brash stupidity or tactical brilliance (depending on the outcome), cycling and auto racing's similarities are many. The drive to be the fastest ever is illuminated in this workhorse training jersey. Reach for it whether you're fortunate enough to spend your days in the Swiss countryside, or are diligently logging miles closer to home, dreaming of European views and your favorite race team, motorized or otherwise.
Assos has its roots in the lush, narrow streets of Ticino, Switzerland, and we don't think it's a stretch to say that the region's mix of class and natural beauty has had an impact on the brand's comfort-focused, style-heavy designs. Azure lakes rimmed by pastel boulevards and palm trees make Ticino the kind of color-saturated haven of mild weather that cyclists fantasize about. Though not one its most technical jerseys, the SS.works_teamJersey comes with Assos' focus on comfort first, with a design that evokes the blues and greens that characterize Ticino.
The blend of synthetic fibers Assos constructs the Ss.worksteam with is breathable without going so far as to be purely suited to climbing or riding in peak temperatures, and its slim fit is tailored without the strict lines of racing kit. This gives it the adaptability to be the jersey you reach for before a relaxed weekend ride on vacation or before a quick evening ride after work, when getting out on the roads is more important than cheating the wind or coming in first. Though inspired by highly specialized single-seat automobiles, the Ss.works_teamJersey is far more of the nimble everyday vehicle you'll find yourself depending on all year long.
