Assos RS Equipe Fall Bib Tight S9
Be it a spring interval session or a steady autumn ride, the Assos EQUIPE RS Spring/Fall Cycling Bib Tights S9 offer an ideal blend of insulation and moisture control for comfort in cooler weather.
When weather conditions don't call for heavier-weight winter tights but then again shorts and leg warmers aren't quite protective enough, that's when the EQUIPE RS Spring/Fall Cycling Bib Tights S9 come in. With targetted insulation, outstanding flexibility and excellent moisture management, they bring comfort to those transitional seasons that lead into and out of winter.
Warmth and Breathability in Harmony
In order to keep you insulated from cool temperatures, Assos use fabrics from their fleece-backed OSMOS family. For the most part, they use OSMOS light, a low-volume insulator that traps warmth while also offering excellent breathability to regulate temperature.
Across the abdomen and crotch panels, areas most susceptible to feel the cold, Assos apply an additional layer of their heavier OSMOS Medium. This twinDeck construction provides extra windproof protection and insulation and yet remains highly breathable too.
The Spring/Fall bib tights are not only warm but they provide excellent compression and support of your muscles. The use of double-layer fabrics provides a compressive structure, firmly wrapping your large muscle groups to encourage positive circulation and uniform warmth throughout.
Keeping the tights comfortably in place is Assos' A-Lock Engineering bib design, featuring rollBar braces and ergoBox construction, creating a tight that's perfectly stabilised and holding the seat insert in the correct position at all times. At the waist and hems, a raw-cut, stitch-free finish gives a smooth and flexible fit, ensuring you enjoy the utmost comfort and a smooth transition between tights and additional layers.
Assos EQUIPE RS Insert
Support and comfort on the saddle are provided by the EQUIPE RS Insert. In order to boost warmth, the ventilation holes from the summer version are removed but everything else remains just the same.
The pad makes use of superAir microShock foam in a 3D waffle design. The shock-absorbing SuperAir foam is lightweight and quick to return to its original form, filling gaps each time you shift weight and change position on the saddle. The waffle design meanwhile, sees the use of three-layer perforated foam to increases breathability and reduce bulk. And with goldenGate technology, the unique design allows a more natural irritation-free movement when pedalling.
