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 consisting of a combination of new technologies and fabrics that stabilise the shorts and hold the insert in place.
Butterfly structure: main fabric insert wrapping around the lower back and legs and meeting at the back of the shorts. The use of fewer seams results in a more uniform fit, lighter weight and improved comfort.
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, UPF 50 UV protection, moisture wicking (idroFil fastDry technology), iceColor fabric treatment, odorControl anti-odour technology and extreme durability.
rollBar: patented reinforcement concept inspired by the stabiliser bars of racing cars and using the shorts' straps to hold the insert in place, even when you shift your weight from left to right in curves.
ergoBox: square-shaped structure that effectively fixes the insert in the back for extra stability.
Carbon Xbib: A unique section of elastic material, folded back on itself and forming an A in the back that provides a good level of support and a restricted 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 in the front.
zeroWaist: clean edges with a reinforced band for a more comfortable transition between the body and the yoke. More comfort, less pressure.
Ultralight Leg Anti-Slip Treatment: Lightweight silicone treatment woven into the leg area that reduces the volume of the fabric and keeps the shorts in place without unnecessary pressure.
30% seam reduction: flatter and fewer seams throughout the entire piece for improved comfort and lighter weight (180g).
mod.Dep 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.
SuperAir microShock foam: lightweight open-cell foam designed to absorb shocks and return to its original shape, filling the space every time you change position on the saddle thanks to your weight shift.
3D Embossed Textile: Patented triple-layer perforated foam that allows the skin to breathe better while eliminating excess weight.
Reduced surface area: Reduced footprint of the insert compared to the structure of the previous Team Evo model to make the shorts even lighter.
goldenGate: patented technology that consists of stopping the seams along the two side inserts of the insert, offering greater freedom of movement in this delicate pivot area.
Horizontal Stabilizer: Patented centre 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 at the front of the insert that allows for an increased level of ventilation to cool the most sensitive areas of your body
