Assos Equipe Bib Shorts For Cycle Athletes
Storm to the front with these ASSOS EQUIPE RACE SERIES S9 WORKS TEAM BIB SHORTS specifically fine-tuned by the Assos Works Team for cycling athletes who are determined to improve their race times. All of the dependable stability and full-day support required for the toughest races on the planet can be found in this impressive workhorse garment.
Silky-Smooth Type.441 Textile Using ultralight textiles in high demand for racers, and serious cyclists alike, these ASSOS EQUIPE RS S9 BIB SHORTS employ an A-Lock Engineering framework to create a bracing system which ensures the silky-smooth Type.441 textile remains in full-wrap mode, thereby giving your leg muscles a continuous boost with a smooth compressive wrap.
Equipe S9 SeatPad Included The EQUIPE S9 seatpad features kraterCooler technology which involves a system of small holes in the front of the insert that increase airflow so that your sensitive areas are kept cooler. The insert is held in place with an Assos ergoBox stitch pattern and external rollBar bib straps which means that your buttocks are fully supported by the pad, even when you are in and out of the saddle or frequently shifting your weight. Equipped with superAir microShock foam, 3D waffle antibacterial microfibre top-sheet, and ASSOS-exclusive goldenGate technology the insert is presented in the signature Assos basalt grey colourway which pays homage to the lava stone that gives us strength, stability, and courage.
Bib Straps, Raw Cut Waist & Leg Grippers ASSOS EQUIPE RS S9 SUMMER BIB SHORTS feature bib-straps positioned further outward to better adapt to a wider range of body types. Other considerations such as the zeroWaist (with raw-cut, tape-reinforced edge) and the Ultralight Leg Grippers ensure the smoothest transition possible between your body and the fabric panels without producing excessive pressure. Reflective elements for added low-light visibility are also included.
Odour Control & UPF50+ Protection Employing only two pieces of fabric ASSOS EQUIPE RS BIB SHORTS are cut to a Butterfly Pattern which requires fewer seams and subsequently leads to a more uniform hold, less weight, and greater comfort. The Type.441 textile used in construction comprises a 40-gauge circular knit, (200g/m2) and offers UPF 50+ protection, moisture wicking (idroFil fastDry) technology, iceColor, odorControl, and extreme durability.
ASSOS TECHNOLOGIES EXPLAINED
superAir MicroShock Foam This comprises a lightweight open cell foam with a shock absorbing composition that returns to its original position, filling the gap every time the pedalling position is changed in the saddle through the shift of weight.
3D Waffle Playing an integral part in the success of the seatpad 3D Waffle is s patented, three-layer perforated foam that increases breathability and eliminates excess weight.
goldenGate This technology interrupts the stitching along both of the insert's side panels, allowing a more three-dimensional freedom of movement in this sensitive, rotational area.
RacingFit System A fit that is tighter and slightly more compressive than the ASSOS regularFit and comfortFit options. RacingFit may feel restrictive when out of the riding position but feels like a second skin while riding. Less drag and improved comfort can be expected.
