Having recognised the popularity of this incredibly versatile product, this habu early winter Women’s cycling jacket has now been introduced to the ASSOS collection. Taking all of the proven technology and performance of this early winter cycling jacket, we have now optimised it for female riders. We have relied on the pattern, fit and shape used in our intermediate jacket but created a more insulated version so that it works perfectly in early winter habu weather conditions.
Using Stratagon material on the front for added protection from the elements, we have continued to refine this 2017 version by the addition of a new cuff design, taping and welding to reduce the hems and increase comfort. More specifically, this design features tighter cuffs to increase the warmth in your hands but these can be rolled back on the fly. At the heart of the re-design, we prioritised flexibility in adjusting the jacket’s warmth.
This early winter or habu women’s cycling jacket comes in our new blackSeries colour with the added orange accents of its climaRange, so that you can rapidly choose and refine your outfit depending on the weather forecast and type of ride that you’re doing.
At the rear of the jacket we have also refined and developed the original habu early winter cycling jacket platform that this women’s version has been taken from, but created straight-cut pockets, perfect for your ride essentials.
For added safety we applied a strip of reflective material, to make sure that you are seen during the darker days of early winter.
HOW TO USE
This is one of our most versatile pieces. It can also be used for pre-race warming-up or even chucked into your travel bag in the summer as a postride jacket. As it is designed to work in early winter habu climates, it should be paired with other pieces from this climaRange. But as with all ASSOS products, you can choose the level of warmth that you want. Riding harder? Then choose a spring/fall tiburu skinfoil body insulator to put underneath. Weather forecast not very optimistic? Then chuck our cycling rain jacket, the sturmPrinz, in your pocket as your insurance policy. With this piece in your wardrobe you’ll certainly have fewer excuses not to ride when the mercury drops.
