This winter cycling-specific cap, in the classic Assos style, will perform in the coldest conditions with its premium stitched design and merino-polypropylene blend tri-layer insulation (like that of the Face Mask and the Neck Protector) using moisture to cool and heat the head as needed. With a limited manufacturer warranty, this cap is made to fit underneath a helmet or other cold weather cap to keep you toasty and dry as you bike in even frigid temperatures. With Assos' soft LanaProppy woven in, this cap is double layered in key points for even more protection from the wind without the added bulk.
Worn under the helmet on cold days, the reworked Assos winter cap relies on minimal seams for the ultimate comfort and insulation. Wear for early starts, long rides in bitterly cold conditions or stowed in your back pocket for interval recoveries or winter descents.
- LanaProppy: Main textile, merino-polypropylene blend with moisture management performance. As well as being incredibly soft on the skin, polypropylene has a supreme push-pull effect while merino works as a wind barrier when wet.
- Push-pull: Engineered to react to your intensity of sweating and the subsequent cooling effect with what Assos call a push-pull effect that works as your personal micro-climate, essentially pushing moisture to the next or outer layer to cool you down when hot, or pulling it back as insulation when cold.
- RX Medium: A panel of the proprietary mid-level soft-shell has been deployed at the rear to further fine-tune the performance.
