The Assos RS Spring Fall S9 Bibshorts have been specially designed for spring and fall cycling outings when temperatures are cool but it is still too early to wear privateers. This shorts, inspired by the Equipe RS9 model, is equipped with the A-Lock Engineering system to stabilize and hold it in place even on the most difficult terrain. The thigh inserts are made from Osmos Heavy brushed fabric for added stability. This two-in-one fabric offers several advantages. The first is its highly insulating, breathable and very soft brushed interior on the skin. The second is the unbreakable exterior that acts as a "shield" and always supports the thigh muscles thanks to its compressive structure. Together, the two components of the fabric provide a pleasant level of support on your legs, promoting good blood circulation and uniform distribution of heat.
The wind-facing front yoke is made of Sphere fabric in a double-layer twinDeck structure to block freezing cold air in the crotch, while allowing the skin to breathe. Concerning the insert, it takes up the famous Equipe RS but without the KraterCooler ventilation system. It also features superAir microShock foam, 3D embossed protection, goldenGate technology and a horizontal stabilizer on the rear.
