ASSOS BIB EQUIPE RS – The “TARGA” classification indicates a foundational redesign of our EQUIPE RS S9 platform.
The definitive bib shorts for competitive, committed cyclists from the company that originally defined the racing shorts genre. And continues to lead in driving it forward.
The reengineering process increased performance and comfort, shed unnecessary bulk and grams, and decreased drying time. Which ensures perspiration doesn´t add mid-ride weight by lingering in textiles.
We also incorporated a panel of Ossidia material across the lower abdomen, adding stretch to better accommodate aggressive bike positions. Expand with deep breathing during hard efforts, and relieve pressure for taller cyclists seeking an aerodynamic, second-skin fit.
THE FINER DETAILS
Type.441 is a gently compressive, silky smooth material that feels more abrasion-resistant than your typical bib short material because it is. It also actively cools while protecting against UV rays and resisting odor.
BEHIND THE PRODUCT
It’s only fitting that the latest generation of ASSOS inserts—the most advanced available from any manufacturer. Is partnered with bib shorts completely re-engineered, with no design choice taken for granted or left unquestioned. The resulting bib shorts are atypically advanced. Which makes them typically ASSOS. The shorts combine textiles and technology in an interwoven network of wrapping compression. Silky comfort, and tensile pre-load to keep everything from the leg panels to the insert securely in place. It’s taken six years of in-house development and testing by World Tour riders, but the EQUIPE RS S9 Bib Shorts are the definitive statement in cycling shorts from the cycling shorts company.
