Representing an evolution of the long-running équipe, these reworked ASSOS bibshorts are the precursor to our S9 generation, breaking ground with an all-new insert and new colorway.
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.

Assos are one of the world's pioneers and specialists in producing high quality cycling clothes and accessories. They are located in a region of Switzerland that has maintained a long standing tradition in first class textile engineering. In the 1970's, Toni Maier-Moussa, founder and chairman of Assos accidently invented lycra cycling apparel, whilst trying to create the ultimate bicycle.
During the wind tunnel tests of the first ever carbon-fiber bike, Toni inadvertently found that lycra downhill ski racing suits had much less drag than the woolen-knitted cycling clothes of the time. To this day Assos firmly believe in total product competence, delivering optimum function and comfort, by researching and making its cycling apparel and accessories from the very best materials.
