Developed from the legendary rS. sturmprinz jacket this new Schlosshund Équipe RS Jacket has a race-bred fit and makes use of the newly devloped Schloss soft-shell fabric to create a waterproof race jacket with minimal weight and easy packability. The fabric is both waterproof and windproof and thanks to the use of fewer panels and thus less seams (all taped) water has less areas to ingress and greater warmth is kept in. Assos also borrow practical features from the heavier sturmPrinz jacket such as the silicon elastic waistband that holds the jacket firmly in place and the taped wrists and neck to minimize friction.

As befits a jacket designed for racing the Schlosshund Équipe RS gets Assos' racingFit. This means when riding at speed in harsh conditions you'll still have a garment that doesn't add significant drag, saving energy for the finish. It may feel odd and restrictive when not on the bike but drop into your racing position and it all makes sense. When riding and racing in wet and windy conditions the ultralight and easily packable Schlosshund Équipe RS Jacket is easily grabbed from a jersey pocket. With its racingFit, minimal panels and seams and high-tech fabric this is the jacket to keep you riding no matter what the weather.
