A super-lite jersey and bib designed especially for those stifling hot race days!
New to our custom lineup for 2014 is the Ascent Air jersey and bibs. Unlike anything we’ve developed before, the Ascent Air incorporates all of the exceptional features of our Ascent line of products, but with next generation summer-weight fabrics and technology.
You’ll love how lightweight this kit truly is. The men’s jersey comes in at a mere 0.19 kg, and the bibs are just 0.185 kg!
ASCENT AIR JERSEY (see photos below)
Front panels, sleeves and collar all feature the ultra-lite, super stretchy and ventilated Speedskin™ fabric. Speedskin is a high-performance, UPF+15 sport fabric, designed to wick perspiration and cool the skin. It has been engineered for speed, and provides unparalleled comfort and breathability in warm weather conditions.
Back and side panels are constructed from Arido, an ultra light weight, wicking mesh. Arido is highly elastic and extremely soft against the skin and has been developed specifically by Pactimo for use in base layer and jerseys. Its unique qualities make it perfect for use in a variety of temperatures.
Not only will this jersey give a sleek, race fit but it has been designed with comfort in mind, as well. Waist grippers are ultra-soft Silicone and the neck seams have our exclusive Pactimo comfort tape. The full-length zipper is a concealed #3 coil nylon with Pactimo pull tab.
This jersey was road tested by the Jelly Belly p/b Kenda Cycling Team at the 2013 USA Pro Cycling Challenge and received rave reviews.
