These shorts bridge the gap between your summer race bibs and winter tights with insulating, compressive textiles and Assos's WorldTour-proven S9 chamois.
"Based on the EQUIPE RS S9, these shorts include our A-Lock Engineering framework to brace the shorts and ensure they remain stabilized in the toughest racing environments. The shorts’ thigh panels are constructed with our brushed-back Osmos Heavy textile, which adds to this stable platform. This is the latest member to join our brushed family of fabrics, and its technical two-in-one composition provides us with several advantages.
The first is that the brushed interior is highly insulating, breathable, and super soft against our skin. The warp-knit outer acts as the “shell” of the shorts, further supporting your leg muscles with its compressive structure. Together, these two components of the textile create a nice compressive hold on our legs, encouraging positive circulation and uniform warmth throughout. Knowing that the wind-facing front panel takes the brunt of the elements, we applied our Sphere Ultra textile in our double-layer twinDeck construction to lock out the icy cold air around the crotch, while still remaining breathable."
