STABIO, Switzerland (BRAIN) — Assos will launch a new XC clothing collection for male and female mountain bikers this summer. The company developed the new collection with help from the BMC MTB Racing Team.

The collection includes XC Short Sleeve Jersey, made with Stripe fabric, which the comapny said offers “optimum breathability.” The jersey also has 3-mesh fabric in the underarm and three rear pockets. It’s available in three colors for men and three for women. MSRP is $159.

The new XC Bib Shorts are designed for mountain biking, trail riding, or gravel grinding. The outer is made of a ripstop, high abrasion-resistant and breathable dyneRope fabric. An MTB-specific insert sits slightly further forward than its road counterpart and includes 10mm of memory foam. MSRP is $229.

The women’s version has a women’s specific insert design and Y-shaped bib straps with a a magnetic clasp. Pricing for the men’s and women’s collection is the same.
