Bib Shorts Of The Highest Caliber
Countless hours in the saddle, hyper-focused on the details. Whether it's seam placement, stitch type, or how textiles react to changes in body temperature, the ASSOS Werksteam is taking note. It's this selection of riders who brings lab concepts to life and then drives the finished product even further. Such is the case with the Assos Werksteam Equipe RS Bib Shorts — tuned for the performance-minded rider and year-round racer who makes no compromises in fit, function, or style.
The shorts incorporate top-of-the-line A-Lock Engineering, a textile-patterning bracing system that stabilizes the shorts and secures the insert in place as you pedal. Just two panels are used, with a primary "butterfly" panel fully wrapping your legs and forming the ergoBox structure. This design frames the insert in place and provides you with an ultra-comfortable feel against your legs thanks to the Type.441 textile, which has been developed for compressive hold and silky comfort. The unique rollbar was then added, which mimics a race car's anti-sway bar by using the bib straps to stabilize the insert as your weight transfers in the saddle. Each strap is sewn into the seam directly above the insert, ensuring it's under pre-loaded tension at all times.
The insert the shorts are constructed around features a reduced overall footprint to shed weight, made with superAir microShock foam plus our patented 3D waffle. The stitch-free goldenGate returns, lending friction-free comfort while pedaling, while the kraterCooler system of holes increases airflow up front. Finishing details include new white rollBars, reflective tonal thigh graphics, and new ultralight leg grippers.
