One of the most impressive features of these shorts is the removable impactPads at the hips, designed to mitigate pain from any spills on the trails. Slim at only 8mm thick, they are rigid and substantial without being bulky. They are designed with a racer in mind, light and flexible and not interfering with freedom of movement and comfort.
The chamois positioning is positioned more to the rear to accommodate the more upright positioning on mountain bikes. The chamois also has an unstitched central portion to reduce friction as your ride as the chamois follows our body’s movement, avoiding unnecessary irritation. Rounding out the shorts’ detailed features are a rear storage pocket perfect for gels and nutrition and shoulder straps that cross in the back for extra support as you ride.
We are excited that Assos finally entered the realm of mountain biking apparel. Expect the mountain line to have Assos quality and performance for which they are renowned.
