Representing the top-of-the-line performance race bibshort in the Assos line, the Equipe RSR Superleger Bib Short S9 (sometimes expressed as the Hyperleger), is an ultra-premium level product with an impressive array of fabrics, design, and construction technologies. The lightest, most breathable Assos bibshorts to date and engineered specifically for full-gas efforts in the hottest conditions, indoors and out, the 120-gram Superleger is built on the Assos S9 platform using hyperlight textiles for unmatched stability and boosted ventilation.

The body of the bibshort ensures cooler and fresher legs are made possible thanks to the application of super-light Breezer Tex. This material is deployed for the full-wrap Butterfly panel across legs and hips whiche delivers excellent fit and ergon mics while pedaling. This woven fabric has a mesh-like structure, enhancing the airflow to your legs while also allowing your skin to breathe. Meanwhile, all other panels use Ossida warp-knit material. With a compressive fit, you'll enjoy enhanced muscle support to find off fatigue. It also has excellent abrasion resistance, giving greater durability when you're on the saddle.

Assos applies their proven S9 A-Lock Engineering in these Superléger shorts. This system comprises a two-panel design made into a unique butterfly panel design referred to above, snugly wrapping the legs and back to create a brand new ergoBox structure. This holds the chamois insert securely in place for an incredible feeling of support and frictionless comfort no matter how intense your efforts. With fewer seams, weight is also reduced to the minimum. At the waist, raw-cut edges give a smooth transition between body and fabric, ensuring more comfort and less pressure. Raw-cut edges are also utilized at the leg openings, with minimal silicone grippers to keep your shorts in place with minimal weight and pressure.

The chamois and it' surrounding technologies are advanced as it gets, demonstrating a level of integrated expertise not found out the Assos design room. An evolution of the Equipe RS insert, the S9 Sundeck enjoys a reduction in weight for less bulk. Assos' whirlKrater system is also deployed. This uses strategically placed holes throughout the pad to boost airflow, creating a pad that minimizes sweat absorption and boosts breathability. You'll also have the benefits of the standard RS pad. Shock-absorbing SuperAir microShock foam, in a 3D waffle design, is quick to return to its original form, filling gaps each time you shift weight and change position on the saddle. The 3D waffle design meanwhile, sees the use of three-layer perforated foam to increases breathability and reduce bulk. Finishing the zone off is the established goldenGate technology, the unique design allows a more natural irritation-free movement when pedaling.
