With a new, more contoured pattern design, the 2011 Assos climaJet Breaker is made to become more lightweight and compact than ever before. As the name implies, the climaJet is a top-quality cycling-specific wind and rain breaker suited for training or racing in changing weather conditions.

Another innovation to the climaJet is the fabric design made more resistant to wear and tear. Upon contact with water, the active membrane of the fabric enlarges and offers improved rain protection when necessary. On the sides, air vents provide efficient cooling and evaporation.

Through the Assos Easy Entry System construction, the zipper closing of the 2011 Assos climaJet Breaker is made faster and more secure. The jacket also features a padded neck line for more comfort and reflective stripes in the back for better visibility.
