Designed as an outer garment for temperatures between 54 and 68 degrees Fahrenheit, Bicycling Magazine called this the most "revolutionary piece of cycling clothing since the Lycra short (which Assos also invented!)." The sides and back are tightly woven ultra-tech breathable mesh while the tops of the arms and shoulders are double layered to keep the chill off. The front is complete airblock. Full zipper front plus zippered rear pocket and rear reflective stripes. Designed to fit tightly, if you like a looser fit then order a size up.
"Pulling the Assos Intermediate Jersey around yourself is like swooning in the embrace of a lover. It's almost wrong that a piece of clothing can make you feel this way. Assos, started in 1976 by Toni Maier-Moussa, invented the Lycra cycling short. After dabbling in frames, rings, pedals, and other hardware, the company focused on becoming the Bruno Magli of bikeware. The Intermediate - with its windblock front, high-ventilated mesh back and stretchy shoulders - is the ultimate 'in-between' jersey; it spans a crazy range of ride conditions. When the temperature spikes from 50 - 70 (and back), or when you face a daylong ride that demands excellent ventilation for ascents plus chest protection for chilly descents, sink into the Intermediate." - Bicycling Magazine, Sept 2002

This is Assos' all-purpose winter jacket. A rich, warm inner Roubaix fleece liner is protected by a layer of Lugano Airblock (an Assos exclusive material) on the full front and and outer arm areas. The Airblock layer decrease heat loss while fully blocking the wind. It is also water repellent. Assos recommends this jacket for 32-46F, but add an extra layer underneath and most riders can take this jacket down to 25 degrees quite nicely. The back is the same primary color as the front, i.e. blue jackets have a blue back, etc.

Bud S. from Pa, "I had on a long sleeve base layer, long sleeve jersey, and the Airblock jacket today and it was great. 28 degrees at the start, 35 at the finish and I was a bit warm at the end. It's a great jacket. I don't think you'd need the Fuga jacket unless you were in the teens or had some serious windchill."
This is the finest cold weather cycling jacket ever made, bar none! In testing for 3 years, the Fuga is anatomically tailored of exclusive Assos AirBlock 851 fabric. The Fuga meets Assos' toughest standards for minimal volume, maximum insulation, auto-regulating body temperature, and total freedom of movement. The special AEPD neck collar is the most comfortable ever while also providing complete wind protection. Made for the most discriminating cyclist.
