The progressive apparel brand has turned its
attention to the trail with stunning results.
Assos is a company that’s always approached problems differently. From the world’s first pair of Lycra cycling shorts in 1976, to today’s S9 line, widely considered to be the world’s most advanced road cycling apparel, Assos exists to find the perfect balance of progressive materials, otherworldly fit, and purpose driven function. The arrival of the Assos mountain bike collection represents both the next chapter in this decades long story and the desire to build the very best mountain bike apparel available today.
Built for gravel, bike packing, and your longest days in the saddle, the Rally series is all about exploration. These pieces are intended to bridge the gap between the comfort of a road kit and the durability of mountain bike clothing, and employ a raft of well thought out features to enhance protection and make even the hardest days just a bit more pleasant.
Built for the race track, the XC series isn't built to compete— it’s built to win. Borrowing fit and materials from proven road pieces, the XC line refocuses that aggressiveness to race day, adding rugged panels at the hip to improve durability and utilizing additional ventilation at the jersey for maximum cooling during full gas efforts.
Built to mimic the more relaxed fit of today’s mountain focused clothing, the Trail series leverages advanced materials and obsessive attention to detail, along with familiar silhouettes that are both casual and functional. The result is a line of apparel that transitions easily into post ride activities, without compromising one iota of function when you’re in the saddle.
