A premium gilet for the exacting female rider.
Until the launch of this tiburuGilet Laalalai women’s cycling vest one could argue that ASSOS haven’t catered for the entire cycling arsenal of female riders, but this proves we’re continuing to make major inroads. With a female-tuned cut and signature ASSOS high performance design, this insulating gilet has strategic body-mapped insulation and mobility where necessary.
Building on the ever-popular ASSOS falkenZahn, this handy gilet for female cyclists is so much more than your run-of-the-mill cycling vest. Taking design cues from its lauded male predecessor, this female sleeveless riding top is both more breathable and more packable with revised side panels, lighter shoulders with reflective piping and a lightweight rear made from the same high-performance fabric used in the équipe jersey. The front panels are constructed with our twinDeck foil to bear the brunt of bad weather, and the gilet has a specific cut to prevent unwanted bunching when the pockets are full.You’ll thank us for the presence of the new easy-use cam lock zip and welded bottom seam, which add smoothness and reduce friction.
But what does all this technology mean to you? It’s a gilet that’s crafted to keep you warm during chilly mornings and cool descents, as well as ensuring you won’t overheat when the sun gets up or you start attacking those Strava QOMs.
How to Use
Versatile and variable, this women’s cycling gilet is best teamed with a short-sleeved jersey and skinFoil baselayer, or forgo a jersey and go for this insulating cycling gilet as a top layer over a long-sleeved skinFoil baselayer. On the year’s coldest days, it’ll work as a mid-layer over a long-sleeved winter baselayer and under the sturmPrinz or another ASSOS winter jacket.
- twinDeck construction of RXQ and Tibet: Remarkably protective fusion of a twinDeck formed from wind blocking tibet with an internal layer of insulating RXQ material to tackle fluctuations in the transitional seasons.
