Assos set out to produce a lighter-weight, more compact version of their classic Sturmprinz waterproof, and the Equipe RS fits the bill nicely.

Packing even more compact than the Sturmprinz, the Equipe RS is designed to slip easily into a jersey pocket when not required, but provide proper protection when needed.

Built with the usual Assos fit it'll almost feel like it's not there when you're in a riding position on the bike, aided by the light weight and the natural stretch of the soft shell fabric.

It may be light in weight, but this waterproof and windproof jacket has taped seams to ensure maximum protection.

A dropped back provides extra coverage when riding, and the silicon elastic waist band and taped cuffs are carried over from it's big brother, the Sturmprinz, where they've provided tried-and-tested protection refined over many years.

The Equipe RS isn't designed for extremely chilly conditions - for that you're still best served by the Sturmprinz - but it does cover the majority of the year's riding, through spring, summer and into autumn. The ideal back-pocket companion for changeable weather conditions.

  • Schloss Tex: Assos' most lightweight and waterproof soft-shell. Stretchy, extremely comfortable and highly packable, this tri-layer construction has excellent abrasion resistance and relies on a hydrophilic membrane.
  • ASSOS racingFit: A snug and gently compressive fit that may feel restrictive out of the riding position but feels like a second skin while riding and results in a higher performance, improved comfort and less drag.
  • Reflex: Highly reflective material on the rear of the jacket to enhance visibility in low-light and extreme weather conditions.
  • 'Pocket slots': Two openings on the lower rear panel that allow access to your jersey or jacket pockets and serve as ventilation slots.
  • Taped seams: Found the front, shoulders and rear panels, these increase the watertight properties of the jacket.
  • Extended rear panel: A drop tail to protect your lower back from road spray and dirt.
  • Internal and external silicon on the rear lower elastic hem: Silicon grippers give an ergonomic fit and guard agains ballooning.
  • Ultra lightweight, ultra packable: With minimal volume, minimal seams and great packability.
  • Slim, lightweight, full-length zip for individually adjusting to the conditions with the option to double zip and open from the bottom for breathability.
  • Rustle-free: Designed to be as quiet as possible with a rustle-free fabric.
  • DWR: Treated with a Durable Water Repellency treatment, as not every day comes with unbroken sunshine.

Size Guide:

Assos clothing is cut anatomically to fit perfectly without restricting movement when in the riding position. Bibs might pull when standing upright - this is normal.

Assos tend to be a particularly slim fit - most people find they need to go up a size from their equivalent in other brands.
