Based on feedback from the BMC Racing Team riders, assos has designed an even lighter skin foil option for the toughest situations on the hottest days of the year. The seamless construction ensures that this base layer has a comfortable, non-restrictive fit for complete comfort. The fabric was not produced on flatbed knitting machines; instead it was knitted on circular knitting machines, similar to stockings.
This gives the Skin Foil a better fit, higher performance and more comfort. The Skin Foil is designed to respond to the intensity of sweating and the subsequent cooling effect. Assos calls this the push pull effect and it acts as your personal microclimate. The main purpose is to draw moisture from the skin to the next or outer layer to cool it down or to be pushed back as insulation when the outside temperature is cold. The high-performance jerseys and jackets may not reach their full functional potential if your first layer does not work properly. That's why so much technology has been put into an at first glance inconspicuous garment.
This is the lightest Skin Foil Baselayer in the ASSOS collection. It has been specially designed for the hottest days of the year based on feedback from BMC Racing Team riders - just take a look at the merciless gradients and temperatures the riders have to cope with during the Giros or Vuelta and you will understand these requirements. All skin foils should be worn directly on the skin under your bibs and jerseys. The Skin Foil works optimally if it has become slightly damp during the ride. This is a good sign, because it is precisely this moisture that acts as insulation or cooling and keeps you comfortable. ASSOS Skin Foil are unisex. Assos does not dictate which skin foil should be worn at which time of the year; it depends on the intensity of your tour, your body and your personal physical performance. After all, these parts are used to fine-tune your outfit.
