OVERVIEW: The Ascent Aero Mesh has been designed for those who want a super lightweight, extremely breathable, aerodynamic-fitting jersey for hot summer rides or days when they will be cranking out long, steep climbs. Front panels and Euro-length sleeves are constructed using a stretchy, wicking fabric, while the back of the jersey is made up of a fine mesh, allowing for the ultimate in heat dissipation. At just 119 grams in a size medium, this jersey is almost featherweight, but we've engineered structural integrity that keeps loaded pockets from sagging. (Please Note: because of the meshy back fabric, we always recommend wearing sunscreen on your back and shoulders when wearing this jersey.)
AERO FIT: This jersey has a slim, aerodynamic fit, ensuring less flap and wind drag through the shoulders and torso. It has been designed to hug the body and falls within the category of a race jersey.
DESIGN NOTES: With long climbs and lightweight comfort in mind, we focused on a minimalistic design aesthetic for the Ascent Aero Mesh. The collar has a lower set point in front and a tapered design to increase comfort when the jersey is fully zipped. We also used a YKK semi-auto lock zipper, which features a textured rubber pull for better gripping. The biggest advantage of a locking zipper is the ability for the wearer to singlehandedly unzip and open their jersey for venting. Merely flip the pull up to unlock the zipper. Then, with one hand, the jersey can be pulled open. Flip the pull back down to lock the zipper pull in place. We are also really excited about the pocket design, which incorporates a stretchy and more durable opening and an innovative bellows at the bottom that expands when stuffed with larger objects. And finally, we removed the waist gripper from the front half of the jersey, not only to reduce weight, but to create more comfort and less binding when in the riding position.
"Living in the rarefied air of Colorado, at the foot of the Rockies, you'll learn a thing or two about climbing. Pactimo has invested its climbing knowledge into the Ascent Aero Mesh Jersey. An all-new fabric, Feather-Stretch, combined with Zero-Weight mesh, deliver a jersey that weighs just 120 grams and is the most breathable jersey Pactimo has ever made. Despite the ultralight weight, Pactimo has graced the jersey with robust pockets that can handle a day's worth of gear without yanking your collar down or shifting from side to side."
