Assos Intermediate Evo Long Sleeve Jerseys

4/5 (5 Reviews)
MSRP : $230.00

Product Description

The Intermediate Evo Long Sleeve jersey it represents a complete redesign of the long beloved Assos Intermediate jersey design. Like the first-generation Intermediate, the Evo is designed to provide the perfect amount of warmth for situations when a summerweight jersey is too cool, but the use of a more thermal jacket. Its warmth is primarily a function of its excellent windblocking characteristics, and it will serve you best in a temperature range from 53-64 degrees.

Strengths:    High quality, function, style.

Weaknesses:    A little spendy. However, there is much truth to the old saying, "you get what you pay for".

Bottom Line:   
I'm very pleased with this jersey. I've worn it from the low fifties to right around seventy and it works great. I haven't been cold once and on the slightly warmer days the full front zip is more than sufficient
to provide cooling air. Assos claim that their clothing "clicks" into place in the riding position is spot on. I'm amazed at how well their clothing melts onto my body when I'm riding.

Strengths:    My favorite part about the jersey is the fit, which is consistent with all Assos apparel. It won't flat in the wind and won't create any drag when you're riding hard. The airBlock material is something you won't find in most jerseys, but you'll learn to like it, even if it does make you a little warm.

Weaknesses:    2 things: The zipper at the collar of the jersey doesn't have a zipper garage and does get a bit annoying at times when zipped all the way up. The other thing is the difference between the warmth of the middle (chest/stomach) of the jersey and the sleeves. Your core will be warm, but your arms might be cold without the proper base layer underneath it.

Bottom Line:   
If you've worn Assos before you know you're going to get a quality piece of apparel. The Intermediate EVO is slim-fitting jersey that I've been comfortable wearing tin 50 degree weather as well as in temperatures in the high 30s. Of course I wearing a sleeveless base layer when it was 50 and the Assos earlyWinter Interactive base layer when it was in the 30s, but it's a versatile jersey none-the-less. You'll keep plenty warm with the airBlock 851 fabric in the chest/stomach area, but might get a chill from the lyrca sleeves. Overall, you'll be happy with the jersey.

Strengths:    Wind protection, fit and comfort.

Weaknesses:    Material burring in several places - wear apparent after a few rides!

Bottom Line:   
Impressed with Wind protection, fit and performance with perspiration management.
However, within weeks the collar started to burr and there is also burring on the back of the jacket - this has not happened with any other jersey i have owned even ones costing 1/3 of the price.
Within months the jersey looks really old despite caring as per instructions.
This is only the 2nd Assos product I have owned and neither have presented even mediocre value for money. Buy two of the cheaper jerseys instead.
Spend your money on

Strengths:    Quality, workmanship, design and killer looks

Weaknesses:    expensive

Bottom Line:   
This is a premium quality long sleeve jersey. Materials used and craftsmanship is fantastic, front of the jersey has airblock that really works, at 25 mph at 50 degree temperature I did not feel the air at all, and then at 45 mph downhill air did not go thru also. So this is I say about between 42-60F temperature range jersey. I recommend to wear base layer underneath the jersey for better comfort if the weather get warms your chest will sweat a lot as there is no air penetration. Euro sizes is smaller than US sizes, I wear US M but Euro L this is because Americans are fatter so companies here alter the sizing for psychological marketing purpose. I recommend this jersey but it is expensive. Jersey is more comfortable in riding position that standing up.

Strengths:    Light, comfortable, it can be used as a base layer

Weaknesses:    Don't use it as a base layer is too nice to be covered.

Bottom Line:   
Great upgrade from the previous Intermediate Jersey, the chest area is covered with the Aiblock 799 fabric, the underneath fabric on the arms is breathable and lycra on the upper, shoulders and neck. There are 3 bags and one zippered. The arms are contoured and the fit is plain great, I think it can be weared on cool and warm days, don't try it in hot (higher than 80F) you'll be cooking your chest. One thing I love about Assos is that once on the bike you'll forget about it, it's like if they just dissappear, you'll never see a piece of fabric waving on the air (if completelly zippered) or felt a bunch of clothing on any area, the fit is that great. If you need to grab/place something from/to the back pockets they are very easy to access. The price is always a not so good field for Assos, but you can always find fair deals and on this case you really get what you pay for and a little more.
