Assos' Flagship Bibshorts
The Assos Equipe RS Targa S9 is the flagship WorldTour bib shorts for racing, dedicated training, and cyclists who understand that meticulous engineering and refined equipment can help athletes achieve higher performance.
The Targa classification indicates a foundational redesign of the EQUIPE RS S9 platform. The reengineering process increased performance and comfort, shed unnecessary bulk and grams, and decreased drying time—which ensures perspiration doesn't add mid-ride weight by lingering in textiles.
The new Equipe RS Targa incorporates a panel of Ossidia material across the lower abdomen, adding stretch to better accommodate aggressive riding positions, expand with deep breathing during hard efforts, and relieve pressure for taller cyclists seeking an aerodynamic, second-skin fit.
Type.441 is a gently compressive, silky smooth material that feels more abrasion-resistant than your typical bib short material because it is. It also actively cools while protecting against UV rays and resisting odor. Ossidia is a high-stretch material that enhances breathability while strategically relieving pressure on sensitive areas.
A-Lock engineering ensures stability and frictionless comfort
Carbon Xbib limits vertical stretch, stabilizing the chamois
Skingrip leg bands keep cuff and leg panels secure w/ compressive support
Updated S9 Sundeck insert is lighter, cooler and features a minimal footprint
11mm of Shock-Absorb Damping chamois technology
3D Waffle inserts shed grams and increase airflow
Available in Black or Cyber Blue colorways

Iï¿½ve had the S7 and S9 Equipe bibs and they are my standard, even compared to the RSR. These S9 Targa bring slight improvements like perforated chamois. Assos continues to be my go-to.
