Using an Assos specific textile, Type.439, these shorts feels smooth to the touch and offer a perfect blend of lightness and compression. The shorts compress to support the muscles, slowing down the effects of muscle fatigue brought on from muscle vibration caused by the hum of the road. The finely tuned stretch and compression give a second-skin feeling, with forgiving elastic at the leg bands to increase comfort where skin irritation can often occur. Type.439 is finished with an Assos iceColor application to reduce the surface temperature of the shorts to help you stay more cool and fresh feeling in the saddle. The bib shorts use Assos mono bib design, with a new magnetic clasp that stays securely fastened while on-the-go yet is simple and easy to undo when nature calls.
What really enhances the comfort of this bib short, however, is its premium chamois. It uses an 8mm thick Memory Foam with amazingly quick return ability. As you pedal and your weight shifts, the Memory Foam fills gaps between your body and the chamois allowing it to compress and support under weight and quickly return to its normal shape when weight shifts elsewhere. It uses a free floating Golden Gate design that attaches the chamois to the shorts at the front and the rear, leaving the sides free so the chamois can move with your body instead of against it. This greatly reduces friction between your skin and the chamois, giving you a significantly more comfortable ride in one of the most sensitive areas. The chamois also uses superAir and waffle construction on the first two layers of the insert. This construction allows for negative space, making the chamois lighter in weight while increasing its breathability and surface area so it wicks and evaporates moisture faster for a drier ride on hot, sunny days.
