Who knew the Maple Leaf could look so good, so stoic, and so bold when standing proudly across the chest of the high-tech, great-fitting, and environmentally-friendly Assos SS.neoPro Canada Short-Sleeve Jersey? Well, probably about 35 million Canadians.
Taking a "zero impact" approach with this new jersey, Assos constructed it from panels made of 100% recycled P.E.T. bottles. This converts to a smooth polyester material that 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.
The SS.neoPro 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, and a new tall collar and lengthened sleeves design provides added coverage while in the saddle. Other finishing touches include rear reflective visibility stripes, a covered, full-front zip, and an elastic/silicone hem at the rear.
The Assos SS.neoPro Canada Short-Sleeve Jersey is available in sizes from X-Small to TIR. According to the Assos Layering System ClimaRange, this jersey falls into both the spring.1 summer.2 categories. In English, this means that Assos recommends wearing it from around 65 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
