The Assos Equipe RS bib shorts benefits from the brand's new technological advances. It combines comfort, speed and stability.
When cycling, the stability of the bike shorts insert is as important as the equipment you ride with. This is why Assos has worked on the straps so that the insert is perfectly maintained, but deformable, especially in curves and when the cyclist starts dancing. The shape of the butterfly straps ensures constant comfort and better performance at a lower weight.
A-Lock Engineering: S9 generation racingFit system that combines new technologies and fabrics that stabilize the shorts and keep the insert in place.
rollBar (RS): Patented reinforcement concept inspired by the stabilizer bars of racing cars and using the bib shorts to hold the insert in place, even when you're doing a race. shift your weight from left to right in curves.
ergoBox: square-shaped structure that effectively fixes the insert in the back for more stability.
30% seam reduction: flatter and fewer seams throughout the entire piece for improved comfort and reduced weight (180g) RS / (160g) RSR.
zeroWaist: Clean edges with reinforced tape for a more comfortable transition between body and yoke. More comfort, less pressure.
Butterfly structure: main fabric yoke wraps around the lower back and legs and meets at the back of the shorts. The use of fewer seams results in a more secure fit. uniformity, lighter weight and improved comfort level.
Ultra-light anti-slip: The new lycra/elastane leg band structure grips naturally at the thigh, without silicone, for a soft and ultra-light hold.
Type.441: Patented 40 gauge (40 mesh per inch) knitted fabric specifically designed to provide a certain level of support and silky comfort. 200 g/m2, UV protection UPF 50 , moisture wicking (idroFil fastDry technology), iceColor fabric treatment, odorControl anti-odour technology and extreme durability.
Carbon Xbib: a unique section of elastic material, folded on itself and forming an A in the back that provides a good level of support and limited vertical stretch in the back. Above the X crossing, we have used a more flexible antibacterial carbon fibre material that wicks away perspiration and does not form a fold on the front.
S9 Basalt: 3D top layer in antibacterial microfibre available in basalt colour, paying homage to the lava stone from which we draw our strength, balance and courage.
Horizontal Stabilizer: Patented central seam that holds the back of the insert to the outer fabric to prevent the insert from moving when you pedal as a dancer.
kraterCooler: A system of small cells in the front of the insert that allows for an increased level of ventilation to cool the most sensitive areas of your body.
Reduced Surface Area: Reduced footprint of the insert compared to the structure of the previous Team Evo model to make the shorts even lighter.
SuperAir microShock foam: Lightweight open-cell foam designed to absorb shock and return to its original shape, filling the gap every time you change position on the saddle. by shifting your weight.
3D Embossed Textile: Patented triple-layer perforated foam that allows the skin to breathe better while eliminating excess weight.
goldenGate: Patented technology that stops the seams along the two side inserts of the insert, offering greater freedom of movement in this delicate pivot area.
