Assos RS Targa S9 Bib Short
Assos's flagship WorldTour bib shorts for racing, dedicated training, and cyclists who appreciate how meticulous engineering and refined equipment can help athletes achieve higher performance.
The “TARGA” classification indicates a foundational redesign of our EQUIPE RS S9 platform. The reengineering process increased performance and comfort, shed unnecessary bulk and grams, and decreased drying time—which ensures perspiration doesn’t add mid-ride weight by lingering in textiles. Assos also incorporated a panel of Ossidia material across the lower abdomen, adding stretch to better accommodate aggressive bike positions, expand with deep breathing during hard efforts, and relieve pressure for taller cyclists seeking an aerodynamic, second-skin fit.
Type.441 is a gently compressive, silky smooth material that feels more abrasion-resistant than your typical bib short material because it is. It also actively cools while protecting against UV rays and resisting odor. Ossidia is a high-stretch material that enhances breathability while strategically relieving pressure on sensitive areas.
