ASSOS EQUIPE RS S9 - Bib Shorts with PadThanks to six years of development and ASSOS' most advanced pads for road bike wear to date, the Equipe RS S9 shorts open up new avenues. They combine unprecedented stability — thanks to A-Lock engineering which holds the pad securely in place — and comfort in a garment designed for speed.
Bike shorts with the ultimate race insert: the EQUIPE RS S9 Bib Shorts by ASSOS
The bibs converge to form the new ergoBox structure in the back, which effectively frames the pad. The Type.441 material from which the shorts are made provides compressive support and silky soft comfort. The straps have also been redesigned using calibrated stretch, while the back has been given an additional section of elastic material.
The front is made of a flexible material with an antibacterial carbon fabric that wicks away moisture and lies close to your body. The surface area of the optimized pad was reduced to save weight. The superAir microShock foam with 3D waffle and the kraterCooler system increase its air exchange.
Features - EQUIPE RS S9
- Type.441: A patented 40-guage warp knit, developed specifically for compressive hold and silky comfort. 200g/m2, UPF 50+, moisture wicking (idroFil fastDry), iceColor, odorControl, and extremely durable
- A-Lock Engineering: S9 racingFit system comprising new textiles and technologies working in harmony to stabilize the shorts and secure the insert in place
- Butterfly Pattern: The primary textile panel fully wrapping the lower back and legs, coming together in the rear. Fewer seams leads to a more uniform hold, less weight, and greater comfort
- RollBar: A patented bracing design that mimics a race car’s anti-sway bar by using the bib straps to stabilize the insert and lock it in place as your weight transfers from left to right while cornering
- ErgoBox: A square pattern construction that effectively frames the insert in the back, boxing it in for added stability
- Carbon Xbib: A single section of elastic material - folded over on itself - forming a supportive A-frame that delivers limited vertical stretch in the rear. Above the “X” junction, a more flexible material is employed, incorporating an antibacterial carbon weave, to wick moisture and lay flat in the front
- ZeroWaist: A raw-cut, tape-reinforced edge for the smoothest transition possible between the body and fabric panel. More comfort with less pressure
- Ultralight Leg Grippers: A light silicon treatment woven into the leg bands, which reduces fabric bulk and secures the shorts in place without any excessive pressure
- 30% Seam Reduction: Flatter seams throughout, with fewer overall, translates to more comfort and lower overall weight (180g)
- Seat Pad: Equipe RS
- Mod.Dep S9 Basalt
- SuperAir microShock foam
- 3D waffle
- Surface Reduction Design
- Horizontal Stabilizer
- ASSOS Clima Range: Summer 1/3
- Fit: Slim Fit (ASSOS aeroFit)
The insert of the S9 generation combines expertise, engineering skills, high-quality materials and perfect workmanship. The centre is made of superAir SuperAir microShock foam, a lightweight open cell foam with a shock absorbing composition that returns to its original position, filling the gap every time pedaling position is changed in the saddle through the shift of weight, supported by 3D waffle, a patented, three-layer perforated foam that increases breathability and eliminates excess weight. The patented goldenGate technology interrupts the stitching along both of the insert’s side panels, allowing a more three-dimensional freedom of movement in this sensitive, rotational area. The horizontal stabilizer, a patented central stitch that secures the rear of the insert to the outer textile, eliminates shifting while pedaling. kraterCooler, a system of small holes in the front of the insert, increases the airflow so that your sensitive areas are kept cooler. Mod.Dep S9 Basalt, a antibacterial microfiber booster top sheet, gives the seat pad its color.
ASSOS' slimmest fit, specially designed for speed and tighter than the racingFit, offering a higher level of compression. Outside the riding position, it may feel restrictive, but it sits like a second skin while riding on a road bike.
AEPD (Advanced Ergonomic Pattern Design)
Stand for the company's know-how, experience and philosophy on how a garment should be tailored to function in the cyclist's position. ASSOS garments are designed to perfectly fit and adhere to the body, in other words, to respect the anatomy of the cycling body. High-tech fabrics are pointless if cut "wrong"!
ALS (ASSOS Layering System)
Less is more. The entire ASSOS collection is conceptualized around this technology. ASSOS apparel is engineered with minimum volume, taking advantage of the body's natural heating/cooling capacities by insulating intelligently through pro-active layering. Both fabrics and garments have chain functions and are cut to complement each other. Everything fits like a puzzle; technically as well as aesthetically. It is up to each cyclist to follow the climate range guidelines and to experiment with the different ASSOS garments in order to find the perfect personal outfit for each specific riding season.Downloads:

Ulrich F.Comment:Warum habe ich so lange gewartet? Nach der ersten Ausfahrt voll begeistert. Den Preis ist mir mein Po wert ;-). Wenn jetzt noch die Qualität und Haltbarkeit so ist, wie von vielen beschrieben.Vyacheslav G.Comment:Очень удобны. Мой рост 182см, вес 78кг - размер М мне показался "моим". Лямки не давят и ничего не пережимает стратегические места :) Есть cento s7 и они менее удобны.Dennis C.Comment:Die Hose auf die ich seit bestimmt 5 Jahren gewartet habe. Endlich kann ich meine alte S7 in den wohlverdienten Ruhestand schicken.
