The SS.laalaLaiJersey_evo Lady Jersey features everything we have come to expect from the Swiss cycling tailors at Assos. Leading-edge materials, exceptional aerodynamics, and superior aesthetics blend to create a jersey that we are quick to get into the wash after a long spin since we are so eager to wear it on our next ride.
Elevating the SS.laaLalaiJersey_evo to its vaunted status is the primary material, Stabilizator S7 Knit. It delivers unrivaled temperature regulation and is featherweight but very strong. The material feels similar to a fine microfiber which sits very soft on skin and is quite unlike any material we've felt on a jersey before. Despite its unconventional touch, it still does a fantastic job of wicking away sweat and keeping us cool on exposed, sunny climbs.
The jersey's cut in Assos' women-specific racingFit, which is moderately tighter and slightly more compressive than the regularFit and comfortFit options. It might feel slightly more restrictive out of the riding position, but in the saddle, it feels like a second skin and results in improved comfort and less drag. A slim central zipper means a perfect fit doesn't translate to a long struggle to get it on, and it also allows for easy temperature regulation. Further climate management is handled by the Sens Classic Tex fabric, which features on the side panels. It reacts to conditions by drawing moisture away from the skin when you need to keep your cool, or uses the moisture to insulate with a thermal layer next to your body when needed. Assos recommends paring the jersey with either the SS.skinFoilSummer_evo7 or SS.skinFoil_Spring/Fall_evo7, depending on conditions, but we're fine without a baselayer on the hottest days.
One of our favorite features of this jersey is the collar construction, which features a double layer of fabric for an ideal fit and frictionless comfort. It's also finished with a patented stabilizer element to help while zipping and unzipping the jersey on the fly. Pockets are strategically placed on the rear to offer the most convenient access for food making eating on-the-go easy. A vertical reflective strip on the center pocket is added for extra visibility. In addition to the three rear pockets, Assos equips the jersey with a zippered security pocket that features routing for headphone cords up the inside of the jersey. A wide, secure elastic hem ensures a frictionless fit while riding and adds an additional reflective strip. The bonded zip, sleeves, and waist help refine the fit, offer improved aerodynamics, and do not rely on elastic grippers to prevent movement. The result is a jersey that stays in place where it need to yet doesn't restrict movement.
