  • Assos Equipe RS Bib Shorts S9. The¬†Assos Equipe RS Bib Shorts S9 push technical performance and race-bred comfort to a new level. Going back to the drawing board Assos designers have paid attention to every detail to create the finest racing shorts possible Developed with Pros. Ridden by You Having entered back into the milieu of the Pro Tour Peloton, Assos have made full use of the knowledge and feedback from pro riders. With a Grand Tour or Classic taking in all weathers, varying road surfaces,¬†steep climbs, manic descents and sprints a lot is demanded of a pair of shorts. This has pushed the engineering team to create innovative solutions focused on delivering the finest fit, comfort and support for the demanding cyclist. The final result is the¬†Equipe RS Bib Shorts S9 with¬†A-Lock engineering ¬†A-Lock EngineeringAt the heart of this bib short is a new Assos concept,¬†A-Lock Engineering. Using a combination of new construction methods and materials, Assos’ engineers have managed to create a short where the seat insert remains in the perfect position at all times. They start with¬†Type 441 textile, a silky smooth fabric which boasts incredible moisture management, anti-odour and long term durability – all-in-all, a perfect cycling fabric ¬†This new fabric is then carefully tailored using a brand new panel design to create an incredibly stable platform for the seat insert. Where their S7 shorts use four panels, the S9s reduce this to just two, lessening bulk, reducing seams and hence increasing comfort. The two panels form a unique ‘butterfly’ shape, wrapping around the legs snugly to form what Assos have named their¬†ergoBox structure. It is this which keeps the seat insert perfectly positioned, whether you’re in the saddle, out of the saddle, sprinting or climbing ¬†rollBar Bib DesignAssos have also completely redesigned the bib straps on the S9. Just like an anti-sway bar on a car, the new rollBar design provides stability. The straps pass over the rear of the shorts and attach directly into the same seam as the seat insert,¬†maintaining the perfect degree of tension as you transfer weight in and out of the saddle ¬†The bib straps themselves are made with highly elastic materials, a single Y-frame piece¬†in the back creating the ideal level of support for the shorts while exerting minimal pressure. Meanwhile, the front of the shorts use an antibacterial carbon weave, wicking away moisture incredibly quickly for intense comfort. These are bib shorts you’ll barely realise are there ¬†S9 InsertAt the heart of the S9 Shorts is the S9 insert, taking race-focused comfort to a whole new level. Assos use an incredibly soft antibacterial microfiber next to the skin and when combined with the¬†kraterCooler ventilation holes at the front of the pad you’re guaranteed¬†all-day freshness. Next comes a 3D three-layer perforated waffle foam which both boosts breathability and reduces weight and bulk. Lastly, the¬†superAir¬†microShock foam core offers incredible shock absorption and memory return, it re-adapts to your body position every time you shift weight, leading to unrivalled support when in and out of the saddle. A pad designed for the rigours of the World Tour so you get the very best comfort possible ¬†Assos have once again pushed what is possible with performance cycling equipment. With incredible attention to every detail, every seam and fabric engineering, the¬†Equipe RS Bib Shorts S9 will allow you to ride further and faster than ever, pushing performance to new heights ¬†Features: Materials:¬†68% Polyamide, 32% ElastaneA-Lock Engineering technologyRollBar Bib strap stabilization30% Seam Reduction reduces weight enhances comfortErgoBox construction stabilizes seat padZeroWaist raw cut waist transitionButterfly pattern wraps lower legs and backUltralight leg grippers free of silicone but maintains perfect holdCarbon Xbib multi-fabric construction for unrivalled comfort and supportType 441 fabric – 40-gauge warp knit, developed specificallyfor compression hold and silky comfort -UPF 50+, moisture wickingBuy¬†Assos Clothing¬†from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World’s Largest Online Bike Store.
