Assos - UMA GT HALF
Premium women’s cycling shorts suited to the first and the most hard-fought ride by those who know shorts best.
As the ‘shorts company’ Assos have spent more than four decades in pursuit of excellence, refining the products so that Assos remains at the cutting edge of the cycling apparel industry. The UMA GT half shorts relay signature Assos S7 generation technology and fabrics in a price-point package that renders them the ultimate choice whether it’s your first ride, an everyday sort of ride, or the big ride.
A bib-less women’s cycling short best suited to pedaling in pleasant weather, the UMA GT shorts are cut from the proprietary Type.439 Diadema, a fabric chosen for its superior stretch, high-wicking and compression capabilities. Assos have applied meticulous detail to the cut of these UMA GT bib-less cycling shorts to ensure a faultless fit whether you’re raking up summer miles or conducting indoor training sessions in winter by applying the super stretch aeroFit fabric on the abdomen. Additionally, the UMA insert is a fine demonstration of Assos' investment in excellence; lightweight, breathable and cut to contour with the acclaimed goldenGate technology. As Assos said, these are women’s shorts for cycling designed by those who know shorts best.
Features of the Assos UMA GT Women's Half Shorts
- S7 generation: the latest generation of Assos cycling shorts, employing technology and fabrics engineered over a 5-year period.
- Type.439 Diadema: A textile design created with Assos' fabric suppliers to meet the demands of performance, comfort and durability. Unique within the industry, the weave has two different rates of 4-way stretch, requiring great expertise to maximise the elasticity of the fabric on the cutting table.
- UMA insert: Cut narrower at the front to reduce bulk and increase comfort, this insert has been specifically constructed for female riders but employs all of the standard Assos S7 generation technology, featuring 8mm of memory foam for increased comfort.
- female-specific regularFit: A body mapped performance fit that is a little less aggressive than the racingFit. The best of both worlds, where wearability and speed converge.
- iceColor: A fabric treatment that reflects sunlight and thus reduces heat absorption to keep muscles cooler.
- aeroFit: An ultra-luxe warp-knit fabric deployed in a double layer for the legs and abdominal area with a specific structure that works in favor of ventilation, contouring and providing the maximum comfort for unrestricted movement in or out of the saddle.
- Assos goldenGate: A patented technology which augments the performance of the insert by allowing the most fluent movement with the body.
- Assos waffle: A unique three-layer foam used in the inserts with perforations that make it light and highly breathable.
- odorControl: An anti-bacterial treatment that reduces unpleasant odors and improves durability.
