Assos Heritage Pack Fed Italiana
heritagePack is the authentic Limited Edition ASSOS original team issue replica jersey set. Each heritagePack commemorates cycling apparel history, as written by ASSOS. Original ASSOS-equipped teams, original designs.
In the early 1980s, ASSOS was the first company to introduce both sublimation printing technology, and technically advanced, microfiber polyester fabric blends, to the world of cycle clothing. Sublimation printing allowed ASSOS to make jerseys multicolored, and enabling them to perfectly reproduce a team's colors and sponsor logos.
Microfiber polyester fabrics made cycling jerseys much lighter, while the technical performance, including moisture management, was so good that this new generation of fabrics and techniques quickly became the industry standard. Traditional, heavy wool & acrylic cycling jerseys quickly became obsolete. Pro Team riders who had the privilege of riding in ASSOS were very happy, and the sport of cycling became even better as a sponsoring tool.
Often imitated, never equaled. Some companies choose a "vintage" look & materials to be fashionable, to make you believe they were there. They weren't. The original "wool & acrylic" jersey producers are, unfortunately, all gone. What follows are ASSOS imitators. With each heritagePack, ASSOS commemorates cycling apparel history, as written by ASSOS. Original ASSOS equipped teams, original designs.
Heritage EditionOne is the first in a limited series. Available for two Summer seasons only. Perfect for ASSOS connoisseurs.
