Assos is held in high regard for their use of advanced fabrics and on-bike fit. To achieve this reputation, Assos spends countless hours refining how the products fits in a cycling position and developing their own proprietary fabrics, in house in Switzerland. The Assos Millejacket Evo7 Jacket takes Assos’ approach to design, and applies it to a more affordable cold-weather cycling jacket.
The little brother to the iJ.BonkaCento, the Assos Millejacket Evo7 Jacket is meant for riding in the coldest of winter weather. Instead of using their expensive Stratagon airBlock membrane fabric found in the Bonka, Assos developed a brand new fabric to meet the needs of winter cyclists, but at a more affordable price. This PlutocratFabric provides protection from the elements, with breathability and temperature regulation necessary in a cycling jacket. Like some other Assos tops, the Millejacket comes in a “mille” cut, which, in Assos-speak, means comfortable fit. Mind you this isn’t a relaxed fit jacket, but rather isn’t as tight as a racing fit. To fine-tune individual warmth, Assos recommends using the Millejacket as a starting point, and selecting the appropriate base layer for the temperature and intensity of the ride.
The Assos Millejacket Evo7 Jacket comes in 7 sizes, from XS through TIR, and is available in four colors: blackBlack, holyWhite, nationalRed, and voltYellow.
