Assos saw an opportunity to increase comfort and decrease weight without impacting compressive performance or aerodynamic properties. Targeted increases in stretch and support let us further dial the aerodynamics and compression while reducing pressure on sensitive areas, and the new construction dries faster, limiting perspiration’s ability to add weight by soaking into the textiles.
The woven Type.701kompressor textile is unique to the EQUIPE RSR S9 bib shorts. It’s defined by compressive support, friction-free comfort, and abrasion resistance—though it also resists UV rays (UPF 50+) and odor while actively cooling. Ossidia inserts complement Type.701’s compressive support with targeted stretch in sensitive areas, enabling a true second-skin fit without sacrificing comfort.
The fastest silhouette in Assos catalog, aeroFit maximizes aerodynamic speed while prioritizing comfort. It includes a slightly longer leg than bib shorts in racingFit EQUIPE RS and regularFit MILLE GT lines.
