Thanks to six years of technological developments and the most advanced racing seat pad ever, the Equipe RS S9 bib shorts are a real revolution, giving you unprecedented stability and comfort during your most demanding speed activities. The S9 represents the future of racing comfort, created based on an all-new concept, designed entirely from scratch. With years of testing and the opinions obtained from those cyclists who have reached the highest levels in the discipline, Assos remains of the opinion that the most advanced technology ever on which the chamois is based is as important as the structure that accompanies it. Consider the sharp bends, the pedaling both in the saddle and standing and all those hours of body movements that significantly affect the shorts and the functioning of the pads, consequently influencing the comfort offered. To solve these problems Assos has employed the A-Lock Engineering system, their new support system composed of proprietary technologies and fabrics that work together to provide stability to the shorts and keep the pad in place. The S9 generation incorporates
just two panels, with the first of the two in the shape of a butterfly that entirely wraps around the legs, then converging at the rear to form our new ergoBox structure. This design actually keeps the seat pad in place and wraps your legs with incredibly comfortable Type.441 fabric, specifically developed to give you a compressive seal and velvety comfort. Then Assos added their exclusive rollBar system, which emulates the anti-roll bars of racing cars by using the shoulder straps in order to stabilize the pad every time you take a curve by shifting your body weight from right to right.
left. Each strap is sewn directly onto the pad, to ensure that it is constantly under preload pressure. The shoulder straps have also been redesigned using calibrated elasticity throughout, with the back using a single section of elastic material, folded over itself, to form an A-shaped structure on the back. This generates an imitated vertical elasticity to ensure greater stability. At the front, the straps are made from a more flexible material, composed of an antibacterial carbon fiber weave, to wick away sweat and ensure they stay flat. limited so as to guarantee greater stability. At the front, the straps are made from a more flexible material, composed of an antibacterial carbon fiber weave, to wick away sweat and ensure they stay flat. Assos also focused on a single chamois design, an evolution of the established Equipe Evo, which gave us the freedom to re-evaluate which elements are most important to achieve an optimized race chamois. Assos reduced the overall surface area to reduce weight, employed superAir microShock foam with 3D waffles, incorporated their kraterCooler system to increase airflow at the front, and took additional measures to secure the pad to the rear via the stabilizer patented horizontal. The result? Comfort signed by ASSOS, stabilized.

  • A-Lock Engineering technology: racingFit S9 system composed of new technologies and fabrics that work in harmony to provide stability to the shorts and keeps the pad in place.
  • Butterfly design: the main fabric panel wraps entirely around the lower back and legs, then converging at the back. The presence of a reduced number of seams guarantees a more uniform seal, lower weight and improved comfort.
  • Type.441 technology: A patented 40 tension warp knit, specifically developed for a compressive seal and velvety comfort. 200 g/m2, UPF 50+, anti-sweat (idroFil fastDry), iceColor, odorControl system, and extremely resistant.
  • roll bar: a patented system, designed to offer support, which emulates the anti-roll bars of race cars by using shoulder straps to stabilize the seat pad and keep it in place whenever you take a curve by shifting your body weight from right to left.
  • egnomic box: a square design construction that effectively frames the caseback at the rear, recessing it for greater stability.
  • Xbib in carbon: a single section of elastic material, folded on itself, which forms an A-shaped support structure, which generates limited vertical elasticity in the rear part. Just above the
  • ZeroWaist technology: a raw cut reinforced taped edge waistband that offers the best possible transition between the body and the fabric panel. Greater comfort with less pressure.
  • Ultra-lightweight anti-slip leg system: A lightweight silicone treatment incorporated into the fabric used in the leg stripes helps reduce bulk caused by the fabric and keeps the shorts in place without applying excessive pressure.
  • Reduction in the number of seams by 30%: flatter seams everywhere and fewer, the recipe for higher comfort and a reduction in overall weight (180 g).
  • Mod.Dep S9 Basalt: a layer that enhances the upper body, in antibacterial microfibre, available in a range of three-dimensional basaltic colours. A tribute to the lava rock that gives us strength, stability and courage.
  • superAir microShock foam: an ultra-light foam with an open cellular structure with a composition capable of cushioning blows and returning to the original position, filling the empty spaces every time you change position in the saddle by shifting your weight.
  • 3D waffle: A patented three-layer perforated foam that increases breathability and eliminates excess weight.
  • Design with reduced surface: the surface of the pad is reduced compared to the previous design of the Equipe Evo so as to lose a few more grams.
  • GoldenGate technology: a patented technology that interrupts the stitching along both side panels of the pad, offering a more three-dimensional freedom of movement in this delicate part subject to rotational movements.
  • Horizontal stabilizer: a patented central seam that fixes the rear part of the pad to the external fabric, consequently preventing it from moving whenever you pedal standing up.
  • kraterCooler: system with small holes in the front part of the pad to increase the passage of air so that your most delicate areas remain cool.
