Whether you're a self-sponsored time trialist looking for the next step in time gains or a seasoned pro in need of non-team kit for Wednesday night practice runs, the Assos Men's CS.works_teamChronosuit_s7 brings together motorsport aesthetics and Assos' extended heritage of high performing cycling clothing for stylish race day speed. Compared to the ultra-aggressive, price-is-no-object Speedfire, the team.Chronosuit takes a slightly more relaxed approach, with a stretchy sublimated Lycra upper offering a more forgiving stance out of the saddle than its restrictive counterpart.
Relaxed is a relative term and this suit is still patently Assos, which means it's designed to present a streamlined, second-skin profile when hunkered down in the aerobars and screaming towards the finish tape. The lowers are similar in construction to Assos' renowned Equipe bib shorts, featuring a stretchy yet compressive fabric to support muscles and help shield them from the fatigue-inducing effects of continuous road vibrations. Inside, the Mille chamois' extended frontal padding area provides much appreciated support when mashing the pedals in an aggressively forward position while also minimizing bulk in the areas it isn't needed.
All together, the Team Chrono Suit is a refreshing addition to a very small pond of commercial speedsuit choices that allows time trial enthusiasts and elites access to marginal gains usually reserved for those who ride their bikes for a living.
