Assos brings the incredible comfort and fit of the S9 bib shorts platform to their EQUIPE RS Winter Bib Tights S9. Targeted windproof and waterproof zones and incredible breathability ensure the finest comfort when winter bites hard.
The Legend Continues
The EQUIPE RS Winter Bib Tights S9 have been developed to pick up the winter-battling baton of the legendary Assos Bonka tights. These latest S9 winter tights improve upon the Bonka with even better protection from the cold and an increase in weather protection. This is achieved via brush-backed OSMOS Heavy material to boost warmth used in combination with windproof, breathable and water-resistant SPHERE ultra and Sphere medium softshell materials. You'll find these extra protective zones of SPHERE softshell across the knees, thighs, crotch, and hips, in a two-layer construction, backed with the insulating OSMOS Heavy.
A Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish is also applied, along with taped seams across the front panels, both preventing rain, sleet or snow from immediately soaking in during your ride. Assos' Geoprene outermost layer at the bottom of the leg also repels rain and road spray. It also gives a smooth seal with your winter overshoes.
As a result of the cutting-edge fabric technology and construction, you'll enjoy a superb level of protection and performance in even the most challenging of winter cycling conditions.
Winter often means many hours on the bike, building your aerobic fitness at a steady pace. For those long base mileage rides, you'll soon find the A-Lock Engineering framework offers a sublimely comfortable fit. This offers a smooth, compressive fit, keeping your muscles supple and free for easy pedalling. Meanwhile, the ergoBox stitch pattern and external rollBar bib straps lock the tights in place, holding the seat insert perfectly in place. As your body moves in and out of the saddle and your weight shifts, your sit bones will remain fully supported atop the centre of the insert.
EQUIPE RS Insert
At the heart of the tights is the race-proven EQUIPE RS seat pad. This winter version does away with the extras ventilation, focusing on warmth instead. The pad utilises lightweight open-cell foam to provide support and shock absorption. And it's quick to return to its original volume, filling the gap every time your pedalling position is changed in the saddle through a shift of weight. The foam is orientated in Assos' 3D waffle, a 3-layer system that boosts breathability and reduces weight and bulk.
Assos are one of the world's pioneers and specialists in producing high quality cycling clothes and accessories. They are located in a region of Switzerland that has maintained a long standing tradition in first class textile engineering. In the 1970's, Toni Maier-Moussa, founder and chairman of Assos accidently invented lycra cycling clothing, whilst trying to create the ultimate bicycle. During the wind tunnel tests of the first ever carbon-fibre bike, Toni inadvertently found that lycra downhill ski racing suits had much less drag than the woolen-knitted cycling clothes of the time. To this day Assos firmly believe in total product competence, delivering optimum function and comfort, by researching and making its cycling clothing and accessories from the very best materials.
