Never one to rest on its laurels, Assos put in six years of research and development, creating the Equipe RS Bib Shorts S9, a very worthy successor to its popular S7 shorts. Using its most advanced race insert to date, and a host of new features throughout, the S9 promises to be a comfortable pair of bibs that will keep you feeling great on your longest, most difficult rides. This all-new design was honed and tested not only by its in-house riders, but the BMC World Tour team also had a heavy influence in its design.
Perhaps the most scrutinized component of any cycling shorts is the chamois and Assos paid careful attention when designing this race-specific insert constructed of 3D Basalt. First up, it's now grey instead of the previous amethyst.
