The flagship EQUIPE RS Bib Shorts S9 TARGA is a redesign of its RS S9 predecessor, with a reduction in weight and bulk while maintaining superb flexibility, muscle compression and aerodynamic fit. You'll also find materials that dry quicker - ensuring soaked up perspiration doesn't add unnecessary mid-ride weight.
Across the lower abdomen, an Ossidia material panel offers greater stretch than previously achieved. This allows for more comfort, easing pressure when you're in a low riding position while also expanding during deep-breathing high-intensity efforts.
Elsewhere, lightly compressive and silky Type.441 is not only superbly comfortable but also provides excellent abrasion resistance. Active cooling is ideal for hot summer rides and it's UV protective and odour-resistant too.
Speed and Comfort Harmonised
The RS S9s are made with the Assos AEPD (Advanced Ergonomic Pattern Design) RacingFit. This is tuned to provide you with shorts that deliver stability, comfort and a smooth, streamlined race-ready fit. ASSOS shorts are legendary; this fit design is why.
The aero comfort also extends to the leg grippers. 6mm in depth and using LYCRA®, they provide a secure fit while giving a smooth and uninterrupted transition from short to skin.
The A-Lock system combines Assos' rollBar bib straps, modified ergoBox, and one-piece Butterfly panel to give you shorts that fit beautifully no matter what. Whether it's high-intensity bursts of speed or long endurance efforts, this engineered design maintains superb stability as you shift weight in and out of the saddle.
Assos' unique 'butterfly' panel design, snugly wraps the legs and back to create the ergoBox structure. This holds the S9 insert securely in place for an incredible feeling of support and comfort throughout your pedal stroke and when you're shifting weight on the saddle.
S9 Sundeck Insert
Taking their already super-comfortable S9 insert, Assos have made improvements to make it lighter, cooler and minimise its footprint, all to enhance comfort still further.
The first improvement is what Assos call the Sundeck Superlight. This is a luxuriously soft front panel that increases airflow while eliminating pressure in this most sensitive area. Then comes Assos' whirlKrater. Again this is all about airflow, with copious perforations added throughout the insert, creating a whirlwind of cooling airflow.
What hasn't changed is the odour-resistant top sheet for all-day freshness. You also retain the benefits of 9mm shock-absorbing foam, taking the buzz out of rougher roads. 3D Waffle inserts keep bulk low and allow more air circulation. And Thermoformed shaping reduces ridges and irritation. Lastly, there's the goldenGate. The unique stitching pattern allows the insert to 'float' allowing the pad to move with you for optimal comfort.
