ASSOS cycling apparel is synonymous with comfort and performance. All the same, it’s inevitable that certain items stand out as the crème de la crème of our range. The iJ.bonKa.6 cento jacket is equipment for riding in the most frigid conditions, and in response we’ve gone to extremes in conjuring superlative insulation, climate control and detailing. The technical magic is allied to an unbeatable slim tailored fit that is perfect for riding to your limits - quite the reverse of most winter gear. In sum, it is a winter bike jacket to beat all comers. At the heart of the protective powers of this winter cycling top is the composite of our insulating twinDeck foil of windproof and waterproof stratagonUltra with insulating RXQ. This trilayer construction is not only a great barrier when it’s freezing cold, it is impressively breathable. Indeed we have scrupulously ensured the iJ.bonKa.6 cento jacket has the right levels of protection in the right places. ASSOS cycling specific body mapping has informed the precise placement of 32 pattern pieces, 13 separate components and 6 different textiles. All of this outstanding technology is hidden behind a stealthy profBlack aesthetic, our exclusive design project for riding fast under the radar.
The iJ.bonKa.6 cento is there to allow you to ride at your maximum in the bitterest temperatures. The hardest sessions and longest rides are no problem. This ASSOS riding jacket performs best worn over an ASSOS body insulator: the LS.skinFoil_earlywinter_evo7 and LS.skinFoil_winter_evo7 are each ideal. In the most severe rain or snow one should reach for a cycling rain jacket such as the ASSOS sturmPrinz as an additional layer. Designed to excel in wintery conditions, we recommend ensuring the entirety of your outfit is just as effective. Check out the bonkaGlove_evo7 and bonKaSock_evo7 for complete ASSOS coverage.
racingFit: A fit that is is tighter and slightly more compressive than our alternative regularFit and comfortFit options. May feel restrictive out of of the riding position but feels like a second skin while riding and results in higher performance with improved comfort and less drag. Tri-layered front panels: Remarkably protective fusion of a twinDeck formed from wind blocking, water repellant stratagonUltra with an internal layer of insulating RXQ material. stratagonMedium: Hydrophilic soft shell material, designed to retain warmth while offering great breathability. Contours closely around the body while being highly abrasion resistant, hence its use for the side panels and upper arms. RX: Time proven warp-knit fabric from the ASSOS family of RX fabrics. Combines highly effective thermal insulation with quick drying, high abrasion resistance and moisture management. Smoothly and accurately moves with the rider. RXQ: A lighter weight RX fabric variant used in key areas requiring great breathability. Internal 3D air channels make it a perfect low volume insulator and temperature regulator. Wind-protected collar: An ergonomically shaped inner layer of stratagonUltra has been placed in front of the neck to guard from cold air. Integrated neck warmer: An additional neck warmer located inside the collar that offers the option of extra coverage for early in the ride or in extreme cold. Turtleneck construction: maximum coverage collar design that contours precisely to the chest. Enables use of the front zip as flexible ventilation without sacrificing necessary insulation of the chest and neck. Raglan cut sleeves: Sleeves that are integrated all the way into the shirt rather than just attaching at the shoulder. Offers maximum freedom of movement and a slick, flowing fit. Standard pockets with twin integrated security pockets: Thoroughly tested storage design with added peace of mind zipped pockets for valuables. Rear stabilizer: A 2-way stretch material with minimal give in the vertical axis. The ASSOS rear stabilizer panel design allows for stable, high capacity pockets that won’t sag. Zegho holder: Specifically designed loop for secure storage of your Zegho ASSOS sunglasses, located on the right arm. Compatible with a range of other models of cycling glasses. Reflective zips: The fasteners on the two security pockets and the full length front zip each incorporate reflective stitching for improved visibility. Light-absorbing rear elastic hem: a wide, secure elastic hem that ensures a frictionless fit while riding; plus a reflective strip that absorbs light, resulting in added safety when faced by varying light conditions such as riding into a tunnel. profBlack edition: Part of our stealthy profBlack capsule collection, an all black design dedicated to the anonymous pro riders who choose to quietly use ASSOS apparel.
