The ASSOS Equipe RS S9 bib shorts were developed in cooperation with racers of the highest level and come from a completely new design concept. The points of elasticity, protection and stability were at the top of the list. The " butterfly insert" is a novel concept, a special cut and seam construction of the pants. It completely encloses the legs and converges at the back to form the ergoBox structure. Here, the advanced Type.441 material is used, which gently wraps the legs and provides compressive support.
Secondly, ASSOS has developed the rollBar for the Equipe RS S9, which is based on the stabiliser of a race car. The beams thus become the stabilizer of the butterfly insert and compensate for the body and weight shifts in curves and during the kicking movements. The straps are sewn directly into the hem above the insert and are made of an elastic stretch material on the back, while a more flexible material with antibacterial carbon fabric has been processed on the front to wick away moisture.
The chamois of the ASSOS bib shorts does well in hard racing use with even more performance. Its reduced surface saves weight, the superAir microShock foam with 3D waffle and the kraterCooler system promote air exchange. The insert is fixed in place by the patented horizontal stabilizer, which fits with the overall design concept.

Advanced Ergonomic Pattern Design is the know-how, experience and philosophy with which ASSOS works out and designs the fit of the products in such a way that it harmonises perfectly with the sitting position on the bike. ASSOS clothing is designed to adapt perfectly to and merge with the body on the bike. High-tech materials are basically useless unless they are perfectly cut and processed.
The ASSOS collection is a sophisticated and technically advanced clothing system in which all products are coordinated and designed to complement and work together perfectly in every season. The ASSOS Layering System (ALS) divides the year into 3 different temperature ranges - from summer to spring/autumn to winter (Outfit Climarange). The goal of ALS is to keep your body warm and dry in all climatic conditions. The advantage of the ASSOS collection lies in its versatility; the products can be intelligently stacked and combined in layers.
The S9 racingFit system combines new materials and methods, which together ensure that the shorts are stabilised and the insert does not slip.
Unique design inspired by the stabilizer of a race car, in that the straps act as a stabilizer for the pad, compensating for body and weight shifts during cornering and pedalling.
A square pattern that effectively frames the cushion at the back for added stability.
An open-edged finish with sealed seams, making for arguably the smoothest transition between body and material. More comfort, less feeling of pressure.
The primary material insert hugs the back of the lumbar spine and legs and converges at the back. The reduced use of seams results in a more uniform hold and less weight.
Ultralight Leg Grippers
The Lycra/elastane structure of the leg cuffs naturally hugs the thighs. Free of silicone - for a smooth, ultra-light hold.
A patented 40 gauge circular knit created specifically for compressive support and silky soft comfort. 200 g/m2, USF 50+, moisture-wicking (idroFil fastDry), iceColor, odorControl and particularly resistant.
A single section consisting of elastic material that has been folded over itself to create a supportive A-shaped frame that offers a short vertical stretch at the back. A more flexible material has been used over the " X" junction, made from an anti-bacterial carbon fabric that wicks away moisture while lying flat at the front.
S9 Basalt: Antibacterial microfibre coating in a gray color palette of 3D basalt - a tribute to the lava stone that gives strength, stability and courage.
Horizontal Stabilizer: A patented, centrally located mesh that secures the back of the pad to the outer material, preventing slippage while riding.
superAir microShock foam: A lightweight, open-cell foam made from a shock-absorbing compound that returns to its original position and fills the gap every time your riding position changes due to weight shift in the saddle.
kraterCooler: A system of small holes in the front of to help cool the sensitive areas of your body through air exchange.
Surface reduction: The base area of the pad has been reduced compared to other Equipe Evo designs to save excess weight.
3D waffle: A patented, three-layer perforated foam that increases breathability and eliminates excess weight.
goldenGate: a patented process technique that interrupts the seams on the two side inserts, allowing a more three-dimensional freedom of movement in this sensitive area that is always in motion.
ASSOS products are designed to fit the body of a cyclist perfectly. The cut of the products is anatomically shaped according to the ASSOS cut design philosophy AEPD. This means that ASSOS products perfectly surround and protect the body without constricting it when riding. ASSOS products are not very comfortable in the upright position - they stretch - and this is completely normal. So go into a bent posture like on a bike and feel how it " clicks" and the clothes now fit perfectly. ASSOS technical products are made for real cycling and not for leisure activities.
If you're built more than slim or if you like your fit looser, go up a size.
