Riding is an active social pursuit in Copenhagen, arguably one of the coolest European city’s right now. And this is exactly the sort of contemporary setting that the design team at ashmei had in mind when conceptualising the Hooded Windjersey – making it high in both performance and effortlessly cool stakes.
With over 35,000 cyclists a day riding down Norrebrogade, you will cut a fine figure in the Hooded Windjersey as you reach Café Europa to grab yourself a fresh cappuccino ahead of a day’s ride. And when you put it through its paces, the jersey will not let you down. First, there are the incredible thermo-regulating properties of the Merino blend fabric, keeping you warm when you are hot and cool when you are exercising hard. The ninja hood will keep you toasty when needed but is easily stowable thanks to a leather strap (a nod to the classic race bike toe straps) incorporated at the rear collar. Zipped access to your jersey rear pockets keep your accessories safe, whilst reflective ashmei stripes will help you to be seen in low-visibility conditions.
Our Danish ambassador, Jesper Nybo Riis, explains: “For me, the Hooded Windjersey is where style and functionality come together beautifully – the stylish details and the great breathability mean that I can happily go to a café during or after a ride without becoming cold or feeling discomfort.”
