Assos TEquipeS7 Bib Shorts Mens

Assos TEquipeS7 Bib Shorts Mens

Developed in conjunction with Assos' Werksmannschaft factory team riders over the past six years, the all new T. equipes7 Bib Shorts stand as a testament to the Swiss brand's dedication to race tuned perfection. So, to all who've ridden in the legendary FI. 13, these build from their proven platform. There are four new mission specific models of bib shorts within Assos' technical feature laden s7 lineup, with the T. equipe s7 aligning itself as the low volume race fit option. Six patents and nine innovations later, a new level of technological firepower has officially been unleashed on the world of cycling apparel design. The main Assos specific textile that makes up the paneling of the T. equipes7 bib shorts is called Type. 439. This fabric is used for the five low volume panels of the T. equipes7, as it's incredibly comfortable and supportive. The material provides exceptional breathability, and it rapidly transfers moisture to its quick drying outer surface. Additionally, this smooth fabric provides a moderately compressive hold, which, in turn, supports the muscle groups of the legs. As a result, these muscles are partially shielded from the fatigue inducing effects of muscle oscillation that are derivative of road vibration. Prototypes tested by Assos' very own Werksmannschaft the Assos factory team riders proved to Assos engineers that this exclusive textile provided the ideal blend of compressive support and low weight. And like the other fabrics composing the rest of the s7 bib shorts line, Type. 439 was finished with an iceColor application, which is similar to Coldblack cooling technology in that it effectively reduces surface temperature in dark fabrics. A cool, dry, and fresh feeling is the result, which complements your body's fully supported lower half. Assos engineered these bib shorts to provide a slightly asymmetrical compressive hold that stretches more around your body, rather than vertically. This tuned stretch works to firmly secure the shorts in place while down in the cycling position, feeling more dialed while sitting in the saddle than while standing upright. This feeling has long been known to Assos' devoted followers as the signature click on fit. This Advanced Ergonomic Pattern Design AEPD fit is ever present with the s7 line, and it's been further enhanced by its new Y7 bib strap design. While the s5's straps were spot on from a comfort perspective, this latest generation's straps have been moved outward in the front slightly for better support. For example, while positioned over the hoods or down in the drops, traditional bib straps generally create a gap away from the torso between the collarbone and upper hips. But by aligning the straps outward, more along the obliques, the straps hug the torso, mimicking the body's movements without any gap, regardless of on the bike positioning. And now for the core of the T. equipe's technological dominance the chamois. First, as with all of the s7 collection, it wears the new amethyst color. According to Assos, this purple hue was chosen to pay homage to the clothing of Roman emperors, English monarchs, and members of Japanese aristocracy, as the historically significant color highlights what it calls the most technically advanced cycling shorts on Earth. As one of the top end chamois within the s7 line, it received the bulk of Assos' technical innovations to emerge from its extensive product testing. The engineers began with an 8mm thick memoryFoam material. This was first introduced with the venerable s2 FI. 13, as its shock absorbing composition returns to its original position, filling the gap, every time pedaling position is changed in the saddle through the shift of weight. The memoryFoam features multiple layers, with its superAir and waffle composition making up the first two. This perforated design works to increase breathability and to shed weight. Additionally, this dimpling, combined with the ultra soft microfiber top sheet, effectively pulls moisture from within the layers below, which allows it to dry much quicker than the previous s5 chamois. Once Assos got the chamois layup to their standards, the engineers began rethinking the way a traditional chamois is attached to the shorts. This led them to what they are calling the goldenGate, which involves interrupting the stitching along both of the chamois' side panels, allowing a more three dimensional freedom of movement in this sensitive, rotational area. Additionally, because the seams are eliminated, friction is minimized even further. But if that weren't enough, Assos went ahead and extended the chamois' thinly padded sides over this short to chamois junction, making the transition against your skin as smooth as possible. The Assos T. equipes7 comes in a claimed weight of 168g, which is the second lightest of the four new shorts in the s7 collection. The leg panels were finished off with new low volume, calibrated stretch superFl...
