All Assos’ cycling expertise condensed into a premium mountain bike bib short
The T.rallyShorts_s7 provide superior off road performance and protection.
Over four decades of cycle apparel making experience brought to bear on a mountain bike specific bib short. Known in the road cycling world for producing premium clothing for dedicated riders, when Assos created their first ever mountain bike line they didn’t simply aggregate their existing knowledge, they also added a series of off road specific innovations. Chief among these is the light and flexible impactPad system. Providing confidence boosting protection without inhibiting movement, the pads themselves are made of viscoelastic polyurethane foam and fit smoothly inside of the shorts. Covering key areas in the event of a crash, their 8mm thick padding is perforated to increase breathability. Removable as your level of confidence dictates, when used without the impactPads the T.rallyShorts_s7 cycling shorts are indistinguishable from traditional alternatives.
At the centre of the T.rallyShorts_s7 is a mountain bike specific insert. Combined with the premium Campionissimo off road fit these premium bib shorts offer the freedom of movement necessary for dynamic trail riding, yet remain tailored enough to race in. Constructed from a custom-developed fabric to provide anatomical comfort and muscle supporting compression, the T.rallyShorts_s7 are more than tough enough for the rigours of off road riding.
