Cycling Weekly Verdict

Assos’s Women’s UMA GTV Jersey C2 is all about performance without compromising on comfort. Soft fabrics that hug the body, creating a streamlined, second-skin effect, offer excellent levels of breathability. Construction is second to none and raw-cut edges make for a clean, stylish finish. The understated design is only available in two colours, both rather dark, so it’s not one for those who like eye-catching kit. The price is certainly both eye-catching and eye-watering though.

Performance-orientated summer jerseys tend to be stripped-back affairs; saving weight and creating something that’s breathable means doing away with finer details such as stitched hems, collars, zip garages and substantial reflective detailing. The Assos UMA GTV is bordering on falling into this category. Assos has been thoughtful enough to leave one or two considered elements there though; this isn’t a full-on race jersey, rather a high-performance piece for demanding riding.

The UMA GTV C2 is currently the most expensive jersey in Assos’s women’s range. It’s a bit more versatile than the race orientated Dyora RS S9, hence the higher price - it should offer more miles per pound. Sadly, the range of colours available is limited, I’d say that these two options don’t offer sufficient choice for those who value visibility. It’s a new jersey, so maybe Assos is testing the waters with the Bluish Green and Rock Purple before committing to more colours.
