Whatever the time of year, it’s always worth stashing the Assos MILLE GT Wind Jacket in a jersey pocket. It protects you on chilly descents and fights against falling temperatures as you ascend higher or a cold front blows through.
To give a versatile and packable jacket, the MILLE GT Wind Jacket is made with Assos’ Foil Ultra textile to the front. This lightweight fabric is windproof, water-repellent and breathable so you’ll enjoy a nicely regulated micro-climate inside. Meanwhile, the side panels use ‘Glossy’ a warp-knit windproof textile which gives extra stretch to enhance the fit while still maintaining breathability. The combination strikes a balance of low pack weight and protection son you’re happy to take the GT jacket on every ride without sacrificing too much space in your pockets.
In terms of the fit of the jacket, this garment is less compressive than a racingFit, but more fitted than Assos’ comfortFit. It bridges the gap between the two and provides the ideal balance between comfort, freedom of movement and performance.
