Stand out this season in the new Assos Erlkoenig short sleeve jersey. The Erlkoenig summer jersey features a unique print based on spotted, dotted, dazzle camouflage.
Created by British artist Norman Wilkinson, the camo pattern originated as a disguise technique that was intended to mask and protect warships during WWI. The automotive industry adopted the effect in the ’50s, dubbing the proto cars “Erlkönig” or “Erlkings” as a way to confuse the competition and conceal new technologies.
Adapting this pattern for use on a cycling jersey reflects the idea that Assos' product R&D mirror many of those in the automotive racing industry. Testing, testing, and more testing is what leads to better, faster equipment, and the Erlkoenig SS Jersey is the latest version of the all-around SS jersey platform.
A great all rounder, this jersey is made from time-tested Dual Tex and Push Pull textiles, noted for their breathability, low weight, and exceptional stretch.
Raglan, seam free, raw-cut sleeves create a smooth line, 3 back pockets in a contrasting back to secure your cargo and a comfortable regularFit.
