The Equipe RS Rain Jacket insulates, protects, and keeps the chill away with its waterproof construction and race-focused cut. At just 170g, it's half the weight of our legendary sturmPrinz, which means this is the jacket to grab when you need something slightly more everyday, and slightly less heavy-duty.
The jacket is crafted with the latest development from the ASSOS Textile Laboratory, our Schloss Tex, which is lightweight, flexible, and waterproof. This riding jacket borrows numerous cues from the race-proven sturmPrinz, such as the taped wrists and neck to minimize friction, the silicon elastic waistband, and the appreciated slot pockets that allow access to your regular jersey pockets beneath. We've also applied a double zip to give the rider the liberty to open from the bottom and increase breathability.
Along with its 3-layer waterproof textile, this rain jacket applies minimal seams and panels. Providing necessary water-repellent and windproof properties, the Equipe is an all-year riding jacket that has been stringently engineered to provide pro-level performance.

Aero Racing: The SCHLOSSHUND exemplifies the ASSOS competence of tailoring cycling-specific, high performance apparel, using custom-made, avant-garde fabrics that have been engineered with the sole purpose of performance cycling in mind. Ergonomically shaped to fit your body in the cycling position, it ‘clicks on’ then follows your movements thanks to the Aero Racing body-mapped performance.
Taped seams: Deployed across the whole design, these increase the watertight properties of the jacket.
Internal and external silicon on the rear lower elastic hem: Added for stability and fit, these silicon grips ensure that this rain jacket fits ergonomically without ballooning.
Cuff construction: Lightweight, water-repellent stretch inserts that make it easier to pull on and off while riding.
Rustle-free: This piece of apparel has been designed to be as quiet as possible with a rustle-free fabric.
‘Pocket slots’: There are two cleverly positioned openings on the lower rear panel that allow access to your jersey or jacket pockets. They serve a double purpose as ventilation slots, as well as allowing maneuver-free access to the contents of your pocket.
DWR: As not every day comes with unbroken sunshine, we’ve treated this product to our DWR (Durable Water Repellency) to protect you from rainfall.
Full-length zip: Slim, light zip for individually adjusting to the conditions.
ultra lightweight, ultra packable: As cyclists we understand the needs and restrictions that you face on every ride. With limited pocket space and a need to accommodate the essentials, we have diligently worked to create products with the lowest possible weight and great packability. As no one wants to feel like a packhorse on rides in changeable conditions, we’ve strived to strike the balance between weight, volume and performance. Our approach is always to craft pieces that will exceed expectations as your back-pocket insurance policy. This approach involves minimal volume and minimal seams.
