Assos Skin Layer - a base layer collection for all seasons

Assos place a lot of importance on the humble base layer

The new Skin Layer range from Assos is a collection of six male/female specific base layers aimed at providing the best performance no matter the conditions.

Assos has always done things slightly differently when it comes to its clothing collections and rather than designing individual items it curates what it calls the Assos Layering System. With this system Assos divides up its full range, from jackets to socks, not only into fit and intended use but also into coded collections all with the simple aim of being the ideal set of kit to work within specific climate and ride parameters and preferences. These collections, 1.3, 2.3 and 3.3 correspond to clothing suitable for summer, spring/autumn and winter.
