Clothing brand ASSOS, based in Lugano, Switzerland, has amassed countless fans worldwide thanks to the almost-fanatical level of detail in its performance cycling clothing. ASSOS bib shorts, baselayers, jerseys and cycling jackets have been setting new standards in terms of fit, material and workmanship for almost 40 years now. The Swiss experts know exactly what's important for cyclists - no wonder, most of them are passionate riders themselves. ASSOS brings 35 years of research in anatomical, functional cycling clothing to every piece of bikewear they offer.
The MILLE GTS Bib Short by ASSOS is the latest evolution of the popular MILLE GT Bib Short. ASSOS is especially proud of the wholly reworked seat cushion, featuring double-layer memory foam under a honeycomb structure. The cushion is exceptionally breathable, not least thanks to the KRATERCOOLER ventilation system. The ERGOBOX frames the cushion at the back, providing additional stability. Targeted support of the sit bones ensures exceptional comfort, whether for long rides or fast training kilometres. Thanks to the GOLDENGATE technology, where the pad is only sewn at a few corner points, it follows your movements, which reduces friction as there are fewer seams. The BUTTERFLY PATTERN ensures the padding stays in position, and further stability is provided by the SUPERFLAT XBIB straps, which form an A-shaped frame. For the fabric, ASSOS relies on the specially-developed, so-called OSSIDIA, which offers the ideal balance between compression and comfort.
The Swiss brand Assos makes technologically-advanced bike wear and accessories for cyclists of all levels that are not only functional, but also look elegant and fit the body extremely comfortably. Its selection of aerodynamic, cutting-edge designs help cyclists to push themselves to the limit. If you are searching for a product that not only lets you stand out from the crowd visually, but also enhances performance, comfort and safety, the Assos brand offers unbeatable quality and craftsmanship in every model.
Assos - the cycling shorts company since 1976
The Assos story began in 1976, when it was founded in Ticino in Switzerland. At that time, the first ever Lycra cycling shorts were introduced to the market, when it was realised that the material Lycra was even more aerodynamic than human skin. This discovery revolutionised the world of cycling. In 1980, it released the Assos cycling jersey and in 1995, pioneered the trademark Assos layering system. Designed for 7 riding seasons, from spring to winter, the layering system enables cyclists to ride in any conditions. After that, the company continued to create new innovations at a steady pace, with a focus on clothing that minimises air resistance, decreases fatigue and improves power and efficiency.
Today, Assos is widely known around the world thanks to its numerous technical solutions and innovations. Its clothing has been worn in prominent competitions, world championships and at the Olympic games, and has supported athletes as they strive to attain their goals at every level. In 2011 Assos introduced specialised eyewear engineered for high-performance cycling in an exclusive joint venture between Carl Zeiss Vision Sunlens and the Assos Centro Studio. In 2014, Assos launched its first off-road rally collection specifically designed for mountain biking.
