Review: Assos iJ.haBu.5

Assos has had the Habu in its range for nearly ten years now and it has always been a super versatile jacket that covers a wide range of conditions, layering well for maximum effectiveness.

Made using fabrics that Assos themselves develop, the Habu is constructed using 18 panels with six different fabrics. You get a windproof panel that covers the front-facing areas. This does most of the hard work to keep you warm when the weather is chilly, allowing you to simply layer different base layers underneath depending on how low the temperature drops.

Covering the front and arms with the windproof fabric allows Assos to use a fleecy material that is very breathable on parts of the jacket that won't be hitting the wind. As a result, the jacket is perfect for high-tempo rides in cool conditions.

Seeing as the weather is mostly gloomy in the winter, Assos has put reflective details on the jacket, like the full-length zip for a little extra visibility.

At the back of the jacket, you get your standard three large pockets that are perfect for storing snacks and a waterproof. You also get two zippered pockets so that you can safely store your phone, keys and a bank card for the extra big cafe order that seems to be a regular feature of our winter rides. You burn more calories in cold weather, you know!

About Merlin Cycles

See the Merlin Sale here

Merlin Cycles was initially a mail-order business started in June 1993 by John Moss in the spare bedroom of his house in Whittle Le Woods near Chorley. A few months later the company opened a shop premises in Ormskirk, Lancashire. In 1998 Merlin Cycles moved to larger shop premises in Leyland.

Merlin Cycles spent ten years on the Leyland premises. During this time they began designing their own mountain bikes, including the Rock Lobster steel hardtails and then the Malt aluminium hardtails.

From an original concentration on the UK mountain bike market, recent years has seen the company switch to catering equally for the increasing road cycling market. In 2008 the company moved to their current shop, warehouse and office premises in Buckshaw Village, Chorley.


In 2012 Merlin Cycles began as the sole importer of Dutch-based bike company Sensa. Merlin Cycles now have an exclusive UK deal with Sensa.
