The official ASSOS “yellow jersey” of the 2019 Tour of California goes to the rider with the lowest cumulative race time. Featuring race sponsors, a contrasting sleeve, and the iconic grizzly bear of The Golden State, this is what the GC contenders will have in their crosshairs throughout the race.
The body-mapped paneling follows our proven regularFit pattern, complemented by its light, fast-drying double yarn textile that excels in moving moisture away from the skin. From there, we borrowed a few design cues from our favorite long-distance jerseys, including an open mesh at the underarms for increased airflow, our proprietary reinforced pocket system that stabilizes the cargo load, fold-over stitching at the cuffs and front hem, a slim full-length zipper, and a light silicone grip along the rear hem for a locked-in hold, regardless of upper body position.
regularFit: A body-mapped performance fit that is a little less aggressive than our racingFit—the best of both worlds, where speed and comfort converge.
Dual Tex: A fast-drying double yarn textile with great moisture management and breathability. Snag resistant with high mechanical stretch, it also has built-in UPF30 and odorControl.
Triple Ramp Pockets: Our storage design with three textile-lidded pockets optimally located for ease of access; security and stability guaranteed. The pockets in this jersey are made from lightweight and super stretchy Sens Classic Tex.
Open Mesh: A light, flexible material applied to the underarm panels for increased airflow.
Full-Length Zipper: Slim, light zipper to help regulate temperature.
