If there’s one way in which As­sos stands apart from the pack, it’s with the Swiss brand’s cu­ri­ous nam­ing con­ven­tions. The har­mon­i­cally named Laalalai is its women’s range, which has been a big fo­cus for the last few years fol­low­ing a decade of back­lash against the provoca­tive poses of ‘As­sos girl’. Those days are gone, and the SS Laalalai evo jersey has some well thought-out fea­tures, de­spite its slightly au­thor­i­tar­ian pre­fix.

A cool­ing knit pat­tern on the back of the jersey does a great deal for help­ing to reg­u­late body heat, while a women-spe­cific cut and care­fully ta­pered sleeve and col­lar make the jersey func­tional, aero­dy­namic and vis­ually flat­ter­ing in equal mea­sure. The rear pock­ets boast Triple Ramp tech­nol­ogy, mean­ing there’s am­ple room to stuff in essentials with­out them fall­ing out or ru­in­ing the fit of the jersey. At £130, hav­ing deep pock­ets seems all too ap­pro­pri­ate.
