OVERVIEW: The Ascent Aero has been designed for riders who want a more aerodynamic fitting jersey that will not bunch or flap. Naturally UPF 50+ fabric and extra-roomy rear pockets with bottom bellows make this jersey a great choice for long days in the saddle.
DESIGN NOTES: 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.
AERO FIT: The Aero fit has a more aggressive front-to-back drop that reduces bunching when in riding position while providing better coverage and pocket access in the back.
Front Fabric: Dimensional knit polyester which provides both excellent stand-up for a more flattering look and exceptional breathability. The fabric is also naturally UPF 50+.
Side Panel Fabric: Exceptionally light fabric to increase breathability and stretch.
Back Panel Fabric: BreatheLITE mesh fabric which has excellent durability to hold up to race-day pinning.
