When the harshest winter conditions prevail outside, when most cyclists prefer to retreat (or get on a spinning bike), the Ultraz Jacket is ready to take you out on the road - right where you want to ride. For the wind-facing front panel, Assos have used Neos Ultra-Textil, a lightweight, two-layer soft shell material with bonded PU membrane.
Not only is it waterproof, it's also 100% windproof to ensure that the area of your torso that has to withstand the elements is completely protected from snow, rain, splashing water, biting cold winds and low temperatures. Assos further heat the jacket by combining this ultra membrane with the roughened, highly insulating, breathable RX fabric to keep your upper body warm and dry. The Neos Light is used on the top of the arms and shoulders, slightly roughened on the inside for added protection and comfort. For particularly cold days, this jacket has an integrated FaceMask for neck and face.
By strategically using two different Neos membranes on the Ultraz, they could be sure that d would get just the right protection where you need it. At the same time, Assos retains the breathable properties of the jacket and saves weight throughout. Assos have carefully selected the materials for this jacket to perfectly match the Ultraz to the position of our body on the bike in the riding position and the conditions in which you will ride. That's why you'll find breathable textile panels on the undersides of the arms and back. There is a reason for every design decision, because you know that every detail has to be perfectly tuned in terms of fit and function when riding in the deepest winter.
