Keep your head warm on the coldest winter rides with this winter cap, whose performance-focused combination of fabrics and merino wool is ready to battle the chill.
When it comes to dressing for the coldest rides Assos know that the difference is in the details. That is why they re-engineered the winter cap to create a piece that will unquestionably keep your head warm on the chilliest of days. At the core of this piece they employed a specific weave of synthetic and natural yarns to give it opulent comfort and performance. Known as LanaProppy, the natural yarn within the weave gives this piece protection against the wind, whilst the synthetic polypropylene fibres grant this piece a serious sweat-busting performance. For added protection Assos have strategically double-layered the fabric in key areas for the optimal protection without unnecessary bulk. A new cut means that this piece is ready to sit under any helmet. Assos have also employed the Assos workhorse winter textile known as RX medium on the ears and rear of this cap, equipping it for any winter ride.
When to use?
Worn under the helmet on cold days, the reworked Assos winter cap relies on minimal seams for the ultimate comfort and insulation. Wear for early starts, long rides in bitterly cold conditions or stowed in your back pocket for interval recoveries or winter descents.
Features ASSOSOIRES Cap Winter
- LanaProppy: Main textile, merino-polypropylene blend with moisture management performance. As well as being incredibly soft on the skin, polypropylene has a supreme push-pull effect while merino works as a wind barrier when wet.
- Push-pull: Engineered to react to your intensity of sweating and the subsequent cooling effect with what Assos call a push-pull effect that works as your personal micro-climate, essentially pushing moisture to the next or outer layer to cool you down when hot, or pulling it back as insulation when cold.
- RX Medium: A panel of the proprietary mid-level soft-shell has been deployed at the rear to further fine-tune the performance.
