Quick info: EQUIPE RSR Superléger Bib Shorts S9> insert EQUIPE RS S9 Sundeck 9mm>long length leg
The lightest, most breathable ASSOS bib shorts to date. Engineered specifically for full-power racing and training applications—indoors and out—the 120-gram SUPERLÉGER is built on the S9 platform using hyperlight textiles for matchless stability and boosted ventilation.
To not only shave weight, but also increase rider comfort and support during the hottest outdoor riding/racing days and flat-out indoor training sessions. The number of seams was reduced and the regular panels’ textiles were replaced with hyperlight, more breathable materials to further reduce friction and keep the leg muscles cooler and fresher, for longer durations.
Departing from the standard S9 shorts, the primary full-wrap Butterfly panel is made using Breezer Tex, an ultralight woven fabric with mesh-like structure, which promotes breathability and delivers an ultrasoft feel against the legs. The remaining front and rear panels that anchor the insert and contact the saddle utilize ultrasoft OSSIDIA warp-knit material for added abrasion resistance and compressive hold. The bib straps are composed of a lighter elastic, shedding additional grams and absorbing less sweat.
Constructed using the S9 raceFit platform, the ASSOS A-Lock Engineering framework is used for maximum stability and to secure the insert in place as you pedal. ASSOS rollBar bib straps, modified ergoBox, and one-piece Butterfly panel join forces as your weight transfers in the saddle, ensuring frictionless comfort and stability during high-output efforts.
Important note: This item is high performance cycling equipment. Please do not rush to put them on. These are very tight fitting and require a certain element of finesse to put on. With a little experience this will become an easy and intuitive part of the pre-ride procedure.

TECHNOLOGY zeroWaist: A raw-cut, tape-reinforced edge for the smoothest transition possible between the body and fabric panel. More comfort with less pressure. ultraLight Leg Grippers: Minimal silicone treatment secures the shorts in place without excessive pressure. RS SUPERLÉGER Insert: The evolution of the EQUIPE RS insert, streamlined to further reduce moisture absorption and shave grams. superAir microShock foam: A lightweight open cell foam with a shock absorbing composition that returns to its original position, filling the gap every time pedaling position is changed in the saddle. 3D waffle: A patented, three-layer perforated foam that increases breathability and eliminates excess weight. goldenGate: A patented technology that interrupts the stitching along both of the insert’s side panels, allowing a more three-dimensional freedom of movement in this sensitive, rotational area. whirlKrater: ASSOS-patented system of holes throughout the insert, strategically placed to boost air circulation
