ASSOS TRAIL TACTICA Liner Shorts HP T3 are superlight, built-to-last liner shorts for aggressive off-road riding. These liner shorts have a completely re-engineered new HP High Performance off-road insert, a more secure fit and increased protection and breathability in the innovated hip pad inserts.
The TRAIL TACTICA liners include the new OFF-ROAD HP T3 insert, which maintains the cooling airflow of the previous version but reduces friction while pedaling and adds plush comfort to absorb singletrack and gravel chatter. The overall fit security is increased by integrating elastane into highly elastic leg bands for skin-gripping comfort. There is also a redesigned waist, incorporating zeroPressure Waist technology, which wraps the body and locks the insert in place with secure, unrestrictive stability. The new ImpactorTec T3 hip pads were developed with a larger protective area, a jersey-soft inner face, and kraterCooler ventilation so protection doesn’t overheat the rider.
TECHNOLOGY FEATURED FABRICS: Polstar textile is a bi-stretch, ultrabreathable cooling mesh with a hydrophilic treatment that speeds moisture evaporation. Though more robust than the Sport Touring liner, this material is too light to wear without an over short. Speedy textile is highly elastic, controls odor and provides compressive hold at the waist.
CONSTRUCTION/FIT: Cut in a second-skin fit for unobtrusive layering beneath the TACTICA Cargo equipment with all primary stitches reversed to eliminate friction next to your skin. Standard length legs increase coverage between skin and outer layers. ImpactorTec T3: Updated for the TRAIL TACTICA system, combining 7mm of flexible viscoelastic foam with an expanded protective footprint and kraterCooler technology for cooling airflow.
ENGINEERING: zeroPressure Waist: A soft, highly elastic waist construction that improves the comfort and hold at the waist, minus any pressure or pinching. Superlight Leg Grippers: Elastic incorporated into lightly compressive bands creates a secure hold without restriction.
OFF-ROAD HP T3 Insert: Shock-Absorb Damping Mono9: Compressive foam layers increased from 8mm to 9mm and engineered for more upright gravel and trail riding positions. Thermoformed shaping reduces ridges and irritation. 3D Waffle: A patented, three-layer, perforated foam that increases breathability and eliminates excess weight while absorbing shocks. goldenGate 2.0: The insert is attached at front and rear with floating sides and center, letting it move with your body rather than against it. New cut-outs on wings reduce volume and friction throughout the pedal stroke. kraterCooler: Perforations in the chamois’ leading edge draw air across the insert to maintain breathability and a dry, warm microclimate.
