Assos Equipe RSR s9 Targa Bib Shorts 

A foundational redesign of Assos fastest bib shorts. The EQUIPE RSR S9 TARGA pushes second-skin aerodynamics, hyperlight construction, and race-tuned engineering beyond even WorldTour standards.

Assos saw an opportunity to increase comfort and decrease weight without impacting compressive performance or aerodynamic properties. Targeted increases in stretch and support let us further dial the aerodynamics and compression while reducing pressure on sensitive areas, and the new construction dries faster, limiting perspiration’s ability to add weight by soaking into the textiles.


  • Type.701kompressor-Material: A patented fabric designed specifically for compressive hold and comfort, with a material that sits like a second skin. 160 g/m2, USF 50+, dyed threads with integrated odorControl, maximum wear resistance, reduction of friction, water repellent and optimum thermal management. An adapted extension at the front provides additional comfort

  • S9 SUNDECK: An updated insert that’s lighter, increases cooling, and features a minimized footprint. The odor-resistant microfiber topsheet returns in the 3D basalt colorway, which pays homage to the lava stone that gives strength, stability, and courage

  • GoldenGate: A patented technology that interrupts the stitching along both of the insert’s side panels, allowing a more three-dimensional freedom of movement in this sensitive, rotational area

  • Sundeck Superlight: The evolution of the patented kukuPenthouse construction, forming a pre-shaped panel at the front of the insert designed to keep the ensemble as dry as possible.

  • A-Lock Engineering: S9 racingFit system comprising new textiles and technologies working in harmony to stabilize the shorts and secure the insert in place

  • Carbon Xbib: An A-frame suspension design that limits vertical stretch in the rear, ensuring a confident fit and stabilizing the chamois and anchoring the A-Lock system. Dual-face Carbon material reduces drying time compared to the previous, single-side applications.

  • Superlight Leg Grippers: A lighter update to the Ultralight model. The more open structure and naturally gripping Lycra provide unobtrusive hold across the 6cm width

  • ASSOS aeroFit: ASSOS' slimmest fit, specially designed for speed and tighter than the racingFit, offering a higher level of compression. Outside the riding position, it may feel restrictive, but it sits like a second skin while riding on a road bike.

  • AEPD (Advanced Ergonomic Pattern Design) Stand for the company's know-how, experience and philosophy on how a garment should be tailored to function in the cyclist's position. ASSOS garments are designed to perfectly fit and adhere to the body, in other words, to respect the anatomy of the cycling body. High-tech fabrics are pointless if cut "wrong"!

  • ALS (ASSOS Layering System) Less is more. The entire ASSOS collection is conceptualized around this technology. ASSOS apparel is engineered with minimum volume, taking advantage of the body's natural heating/cooling capacities by insulating intelligently through pro-active layering. Both fabrics and garments have chain functions and are cut to complement each other. Everything fits like a puzzle; technically as well as aesthetically. It is up to each cyclist to follow the climate range guidelines and to experiment with the different ASSOS garments in order to find the perfect personal outfit for each specific riding season.
