Barely There Lining, Extra Protection
The Assos Men's Trail Liner Bib Shorts HP T3 are superlight, built-to-last liner bib shorts for aggressive off-road riding, completely re-engineered with their new High Performance off-road insert, a more secure fit, and increased protection and breathability in the hip pad inserts.
The ultralight TRAIL TACTICA High Performance Liner is built for breathability and durability. It's also superlight, adapting technology like the fast-drying crochet elastic bib straps used on the SUPERLÉGERE Bib Shorts. The bib straps are anchored by the zeroPressure Waist construction, which is also adapted from road equipment; however, they've increased breathability by reducing it to a single layer and overall stability by extending it higher up the waist. TACTICA's zeroPressure Waist is more breathable and more supportive, ideal for high-intensity rides on rough surfaces like gravel or singletrack.
The bib short liners include the new OFF-ROAD HP T3 insert, which maintains the cooling airflow of the previous version but reduces friction while pedaling and adds plush comfort to absorb singletrack and gravel chatter at high speeds. The TACTICA includes three pockets, adding ride-extending storage capacity, and the pockets incorporate pull tabs to guide access beneath a jersey. Integrated elastane grip increases fit security in the leg bands, and the new ImpactorTec T3 hip pads provide a larger protective area, a jersey-soft inner face, and increased cooling.
- Polstar textile is a bi-stretch, ultrabreathable cooling mesh with a hydrophilic treatment that speeds moisture evaporation.
- Speedy textile is highly elastic, controls odor, and provides compressive hold at the waist.
- Second-skin fit for unobtrusive layering.
- ImpactorTec T3 is updated for the TRAIL TACTICA system, combining 7mm of flexible viscoelastic foam with an expanded protective footprint and kraterCooler technology for cooling airflow.
- zeroPressure Waist construction that improves the comfort and hold at the waist, minus any pressure or pinching.
- Off-Road HP T3 Insert with shock-Absorb Damping Mono9: Compressive foam layers increased from 8mm to 9mm and engineered for more upright gravel and trail riding positions.
- 3D Waffle: A patented, three-layer perforated foam that increases breathability and eliminates excess weight while absorbing shocks.
- goldenGate 2.0: insert is attached at front and rear with floating sides and center, letting it move with your body rather than against it.
- kraterCooler: perforations in the chamois' leading edge draw air across the insert to maintain breathability.
- The first layer of the TRAIL TACTICA system, effective paired with the TRAIL TACTICA Cargo Shorts
- 58% Polyamide, 22% Elastane, 20% Polyester
