Our partnership with the leading team in Formula 1 isn’t just symbolic. As part of our elite collaboration with the Works_Team at Mercedes-AMG Petronas we have developed brand new world class cycling apparel worthy of the exacting standards of F1. The T.FF_1.Shorts_s7 are naturally a racingFit bib short proposition with a selection of our best existing technologies enhanced by functional details never before seen. The groundbreaking type.444 Kompressor fabric introduced in our T.campionissimo_s7 ensures these padded shorts pass every performance test while keeping weight right down, and the favourite feel of the T.equipe_S7 short is imported with its 8 mm memory foam insert. A revamped front panel maximises comfort with rear terminal technology added to the reverse side to protect against abrasion. Responding to expert feedback from our test team we have also cut the legs 1 cm longer than the rest of our S7 generation cycling shorts. Make no mistake, the chequered design and insignia on the rear of these bike shorts mark the T.FF_1.Shorts_s7 as the choice of the true racer.
S7 generation: The latest generation of ASSOS cycling shorts, employing technology and fabrics engineered over a 5 year period. racingFit: A fit that is is tighter and slightly more compressive than our alternative regularFit and comfortFit options. May feel restrictive out of of the riding position but feels like a second skin while riding and results in a higher performance, improved comfort and less drag. Type.444 Kompressor: A material we created in collaboration with our fabric suppliers for pinnacle product. Lighter than lycra, with unique stretch properties which allow the final garment to offer superior compression. aeroPatterningFenomeno1 design: Drawing on learnings from our project to create the fastest skinsuit at the 2012 Olympics, this original design involves crafting the garment with a single seam that sits on the rear of your legs causing the main fabric of the shorts to wrap around your thighs, providing a unique level of comfort and compression. ergoKompressor: Our intelligent compression approach, used to leverage performance gains resulting from improved aerodynamics and reduced muscle fatigue. Necessarily a notably tighter fit, hence the millimetre perfect clickFit garment entry. Raw-cut front panel: A highly elastic Sens Tex piece that makes the garment sit more comfortably on the abdomen. Finished with silicon bonded grip tape to keep the jersey in place. Y7 frame carrier bibTech: a bib redesign that involving using a wider cut of elastic for less pressure on your shoulders, resulting in less friction and more comfort. bibStabilizer: A silicon piece attached to the bib straps that keeps them flat and stable. They also serve as a holder for our ASSOS sunglasses. équipe_S7 insert: A chamois pad offering a deft balance of performance and comfort with 8mm of memory foam. ASSOS waffle: A unique three layer foam used in our inserts with perforations that make it light and highly breathable. ASSOS goldenGate: A patented technology which augments the performance of the insert by allowing the most fluent movement with the body. superFlat grippers: Ultra minimal grippers with optimal stretch return to secure the shorts in place without any excessive pressure. iceColor: A fabric treatment that reflects sunlight and thus reduces heat absorption to keep muscles cooler. odorControl: An anti-bacterial treatment that reduces unpleasant odors and improves durability. Light-absorbing hem: a reflective strip placed on the hem of the left leg for safety in tunnels and other low visibility environments.
