With six years of technology developments and Assos’ most advanced race insert to date, the Equipe RS Bib Shorts S9 forges new ground, bringing unmatched stability and comfort to your most demanding speed-focused applications.
These bibs employ A-Lock Engineering, Assos' new bracing system, comprising proprietary textiles and technologies working together to stabilize the shorts and secure the insert in place. The S9 generation incorporates just two panels, with a primary “butterfly” panel fully wrapping the legs and converging in the rear to form the ergoBox structure. This design effectively frames the insert in place and provides you with an ultra-comfortable wrap on your legs using our Type 441 textile, developed specifically for compressive hold and silky comfort. From here they added their unique rollBar, which mimics a race car’s anti-sway bar by using the bib straps to stabilize the insert as your weight transfers from left to right while cornering. Each strap is sewn into the seam directly above the insert, ensuring it’s under pre-loaded tension at all times. The bib straps have also been redesigned using calibrated stretch throughout, with the rear section using a single section of elastic material—folded over on itself—forming an A-frame in the back. It delivers limited vertical stretch in order to add further stability. In the front, the straps are made of a more flexible material, with an antibacterial carbon weave, to wick moisture and lay flat.
Assos also focused on a single insert platform, which allowed the freedom to reassess what is most crucial to a streamlined, race-spec insert. They reduced the overall footprint to shed additional weight, employed superAir microShock foam with 3D waffle, incorporated the kraterCooler system to increase airflow up front, and took additional measures to anchor the insert at the rear with a patented horizontal stabilizer. The result? Signature Assos comfort, stabilized.

These understated shorts employ signature Asssos S7 generation technology and fabrics in a price-point package that renders them a natural choice whether it’s your first ride, an everyday sort of ride, or the big ride. As a bib-less women’s cycling short best suited to pedaling in pleasant weather, the UMA GT shorts are cut from Assos’ proprietary Type.439 Diadema, a fabric chosen for its superior stretch, high-wicking, and compression capabilities.
