Offering riders the highest level of performance and quality with regards to cycling shorts has been a key part of the ASSOS identity for over four decades. It is therefore of the utmost importance to us that we continue to boast the finest day-to-day performance short around. And so, we are proud to present our flag bearer, the acclaimed T equipe EVO. These premium cycling bib shorts, the result of yet further refining, testing, and refining once more, can be seen as the precursor to the as-yet-unrealized S9 generation. From the game-changing comfort of the current S7 generation, the T equipe EVO takes a step forward from the original ASSOS équipe short, which has been the favorite within ASSOS since its creation.
These revised cycling bibs rely on a brand new, high performance insert, known as the équipeEVO_S7. With a distinctive black colour, it has enhanced ventilation at the front of the insert. Developed to increase airflow, these ventilation holes mean that your most sensitive areas will keep a cooler climate, thus improving comfort on longer riders.
In further refinement, these riding shorts stand out from the rest of our collection by deploying the same tailoring and technology as found in the BMC Racing Team shorts to add a little color, seeing two standard edition options with a colored band on the right leg. For a more understated look, the blackSeries edition features a white band on the left leg. And for those who want to ride under the radar, we have our black-on-black profBlack edition.
