Assos' engineers worked with their Werksmannschaft factory team riders over the past six years to develop the all new T. centos7 Bib Shorts. These stand as a testament to the Swiss brand's dedication to fit and function perfection, as they are the next generation of the proven FI. Mille. There are four new mission specific models of bib shorts within Assos' technical feature laden s7 lineup, with the T. cento s7 aligning itself as the long distance, comfort oriented option. The next level of Assos bib short innovation has officially arrived. The main Assos specific textile that makes up the paneling of the T. centos7 bib shorts is called Type. 439. This fabric is used for the panels of the T. centos7, as it's incredibly comfortable and supportive. The material provides exceptional breathability, and it rapidly transfers moisture to its quick drying outer surface. Additionally, this smooth fabric provides a moderately compressive hold, which, in turn, supports the muscle groups of the legs. As a result, these muscles are partially shielded from the fatigue inducing effects of muscle oscillation that are derivative of road vibration. Countless prototypes tested by Assos' very own Werksmannschaft the Assos factory team riders proved to Assos engineers that this exclusive textile provides the ideal blend of compressive support and low weight. And like the other fabrics composing the rest of the s7 bib shorts line, Type. 439 was finished with an iceColor application, which is similar to Coldblack cooling technology in that it effectively reduces surface temperature in dark fabrics. Assos engineered these bib shorts to provide a slightly asymmetrical compressive hold that stretches more around your body, rather than vertically. This tuned stretch works to firmly secure the shorts in place while down in the cycling position, feeling more dialed while sitting in the saddle than while standing upright. This feeling has long been known to Assos' devoted follow...
