Designed for riders who want a jersey with naturally UPF 50+ fabric and extra-roomy rear pockets with bottom bellows, making it a great choice for a variety of adventures and long days in the saddle.
The Aero fit has a more aggressive front-to-back drop that reduces bunching when in the riding position and a slimmer, no-flap fit. Slightly longer sleeves remain locked in place by a silicone printed compression band.
Incorporating an overall sleek design aesthetic, the Ascent Aero includes a tapered collar with a lower set point in front for increased comfort, especially when 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. The pocket design features a stretchy and more durable opening and an innovative bellows at the bottom that expands when stuffed with larger objects. And to facilitate more comfort and less binding when in the riding position we removed the waist gripper from the front half of the jersey.
