December 2023: ASSOS end of production sale item Limited sizes/quantities available.
ASSOS WorldTour pro team short-sleeve race jersey, refined. The next-gen TARGA iteration is more comfortable than ever, combining aerodynamic speed and comfort that makes it virtually disappear during the ride.
ASSOS built a WorldTour jersey. ...then upgraded it for committed cyclists that demand pro-tier performance. ...and now upgraded again. The TARGA generation incorporates the aerodynamic detailing of its predecessor with gains in comfort and structural stability. Performance, comfort, quality—the RS S9 TARGA’s excellence is something you feel in the saddle. Pair with the EQUIPE RS or RSR Bib Shorts S9 TARGA on fast, hot days for aerodynamics and comfort that exceed WorldTour pro team equipment.
TECHNOLOGY FEATURED FABRICS The jersey combines a body of miniCheck Tex—responsible for the signature ASSOS jersey texture—with a Stabilizer insert to anchor the pockets. The blend resists odor while promoting breathability and cooling airflow. Sleeves and pockets of Push Pull warp knit add a breathable, bi-stretch fit that wraps in stabilizing stretch. The textiles provide UPF 25, 30, and 50+ for the front, back, and sleeves, respectively.
CONSTRUCTION/FIT The most aggressive, most aerodynamic, most compressive, and—simply—the fastest option in ASSOS catalog, racingFit is built for the WorldTour, so no start line is beyond its scope. The second-skin fit is restrictive while standing, but it clicks into place in the saddle.
ENGINEERING Bonded seams: ASSOS likes aerodynamic seams bonded, not sewn, reducing bulk, drag, and potential for irritation. A clean finish indicative of engineering expertise and meticulous design. - Triple Ramp Pockets: Pre-structured to increase capacity and stability while loaded. A flap secures personal effects, and an earphone port in the right pocket keeps headphone or radio wires discreet. - Raw-Cut Sleeves: Eliminating transitional ridges on the sleeves removes an aerodynamic impediment from the jersey’s leading edge. Restrictive taping is omitted for a truly lie-flat, unrestrictive finish.
