Instantly recognisable, Mount Ventoux or ‘le géant de Provence’ is an iconic climb among the cycling fraternity – steeped in history, tragedy and victory. Inspired by this revered legend of the Tour, the ashmei design team has created a KoM Jersey to honour those who embrace alpine cycling.
Lighter than its Classic Short Sleeve Jersey stablemate to optimise performance, the KoM revels in the ascent as much as the descent. The blended MERINO+CARBON fabric will keep you cool when you are working hard and help you stay warm if the alpine wind starts to bite. Thanks to its natural wicking capabilities, the Merino blend dissipates any moisture from your skin to the outer layer of the fabric, keeping you incredibly dry – even in 30 degree summer heat. This luxurious blend of fabrics also boasts 10 times faster wicking than normal Merino wool – and also dries twice as fast.
Three rear pockets keep your accessories stowed with equilibrium, whilst a zipped security pocket keeps essential items secure, should you need that peace of mind. Weighing in at just 168g, this is a serious piece of kit for all those who love the majesty of the mountains.
ashmei Head of Product Development Elliot says: “We listened to customer feedback on our Short Sleeve Classic to offer a three rear pocket Jersey with enhanced reflective detailing. With inspiration from the Tour de France, this Jersey is lighter than its predecessor with lots of subtle reflective details to keep you safe when riding.”
