WINTER11NEWS There’s a lot of good raingear out there, perfect for walking the dog, jogging or a bit of bike touring. But sometimes you need more… started out as an “after hours, just for us” R&D fun project, designed to meet the specific high performance needs of ASSOS Werksmannschaft. This is the ASSOS factory pro cycling team, the road-going extension of our R&D lab, a group of experts who design, engineer and approve all ASSOS products. The ASSOS senior management team was so impressed by the products, as well as the reports and comments of the cycling team, they took the unusual step of greenlighting production of this highly specialized gear. It was a risk. comprises cutting-edge components and special-order textiles, and requires a complex manufacturing process. In a word, it’s expensive. Now all ASSOS clients can benefit from the project: five unique ASSOS products that create the ultimate cycling-specific raingear solution, perfect for training and racing under the harshest conditions.

WHAT IS IT? A cycling-specific high performance rainShell knicker halfshort — An ASSOS first!

ALS CLIMARANGE All-season but specifically useful in colder riding conditions.

clima.X Rain protector – all-season half knicker for rainy conditions 11.12.150.12 regularFit S-TIR blackVolkanga PA 62%, PU 18%, EA 13%, PFTE 7% 2 textiles – 6 patterns - 9 components yes yes yes

HOW TO USE IT? Use it as a protective shell over your ASSOS shorts, knickers or tights in wet riding conditions.

ALS TIPS Use in combination with the rS.sturmPrinz (rainShell jacket), rainBootie, rainGlove and rainCap to make the perfect rainproof outfit. In extreme conditions, protect the lower legs by combining the hK.sturmNuss with the ASSOS aftersnowBootie.

TECHNOLOGICAL ENGINEERING Designed to create an ultra compact lower-body leg-protection garment that insulates without hindering movement.

THE CONSTRUCTION The hK.sturmNuss features five pattern pieces, three different textiles and nine components. Central panels - the most exposed to rain - made of TRITON V2, ensure maximum protection. Side panels, made of ultralight four-way stretch TRITON V1, ensure the sturmNuss follows your pedaling movements. • Siliconized calf gripper, patterned to fall just below the kneecap. • ASSOS halfshort-specific waistband construction eliminates unnecessary abdominal pressure. • Taped seams, where it makes sense, to improve water repellency.

CAMPIONISSIMO AEPD Racing cut. Ergonomic shape fits the body in the cycling position. Clicks on. Follows the body’s movements without restricting them.

THE FABRIC • Primary fabric is TRITON (two versions, see Construction, above). This is a brand new family of water protection fabrics developed by the ASSOS textile laboratory, specifically engineered for the ASSOS clima.X product range. The ASSOS Textile Laboratory developed the TRITON family of fabrics to provide a superior impermeability / vapor-permeability ratio. TRITON fabrics are able to adapt to changes in ambient temperature thanks to “flexible membrane barrier technology.” When the temperature is low, the membrane reduces permeability, helping to retain body heat. As the temperature inside the garment rises, the membrane’s pores open to allow accelerated vapor transfer. TRITON fabrics are composite textiles, meaning the delicate inner TRITON membrane is protected by application-specific inner and outer fabric layers that enhance the process of staying dry by allowing evaporation while protecting from the elements. The hK.sturmNuss uses two versions of TRITON: central panels feature the more robust TRITON V1 fabric; side panels use the ultra-light and extremely elastic strataGonUltra fabric, for more freedom of movement.

TRITON is made in Switzerland in the village next to the ASSOS head office location. It was designed by the ASSOS textile lab to meet the demands of high performance cycling under wet conditions. TRITON is not commercially available; it is made for and used by ASSOS exclusively. Tougher, more waterrepellent and cheaper fabrics exist, but are they the best choice for the demanding conditions of competitive cycling? We don’t think so.

KEY FEATURES • Intelligently engineered, cycling-specific raingear that works! • Comprises five pattern pieces, three fabrics and nine components. • Shaped to fit the body in the cycling position, ensuring freedom of movement in and out of the saddle. • Incorporates two versions of TRITON fabric, a proprietary ASSOS textile laboratory creation that provides a superior impermeability / vapor-permeability ratio. • Reacts to changes in body temperature; permeability increases as temperature rises. • Low volume. • Relieves unnecessary abdominal pressure with unique waistband construction.

CONCLUSION The hK.sturmNuss is a new genre of low volume, high performance raingear specifically created for performance cycling, or as the ideal companion for long-distance touring. Intelligently engineered, cycling-specific raingear that works!

rainShell-the ultimate ASSOS ultralight rain jacket

WHAT IS IT? The first ASSOS cycling-competition-specific high performance rainShell jacket.

ALS CLIMARANGE All-season

HOW TO USE IT? Use it as your outer shell over a jersey and or jacket in rainy conditions.

ALS TIPS The sturmPrinz can also be used as an insulating shell, wearing it for long rides in cold temperatures. In this case, dress lighter underneath.

TECHNOLOGICAL ENGINEERING The sturmPrinz holds a very special place within the ASSOS collection. Its development was started four years ago by the core of the ASSOS Werksmannschaft (our in-house pro cycling team), with no intent to ever go commercial. 100% of the resulting product’s form followed only the needs of high performance functionality. No financial consideration went into its creation. Today, this credo of development still holds true for all ASSOS products — up to the 90% mark. Then, our accountants come in, rightly so, to ensure that at the end of the development cycle your ASSOS product is still affordable. But in the case of the sturmPrinz, we gave the beancounters the day off. The objective was not to make a 100% waterproof jacket. Why not? Because 100% waterproof also means 100% impermeable, and this would be catastrophic if you happen to be in the bike race of your life, in the lead, with two hours still to go. Why? Because, at this level of exertion, body perspiration is very active, and the evaporation process must be proactive. It can’t be slowed excessively by your protective shell. Otherwise, within a fairly short time, you would be in a small private sauna, sweating out all your essential salts and minerals. The result? Crossing the finish line in last place — with cramps. Instead, the objective was to create the ideal rain jacket for high performance cycling. The challenge was finding and calibrating the optimum balance between insulation and protection, without jeopardizing your performance, to provide you with a functional, intelligently engineered, cycling-specific antirain device that works! It works in competition; it will work for your training units. So now, in the morning, when you look out of the window and see that it’s not “cosy”, but damp and cold, with more rain on the way… grab your sturmPrinz and have a good ride.

rainShell-the ultimate ASSOS ultralight rain jacket FEATURED FABRIC • A brand new family of water protection fabrics, TRITON is a custom-made ASSOS Textile Laboratory development specifically engineered for the sturmPrinz cycling-competition-specific rain jacket. Triton was created specifically to manufacture the ultimate high performance cycling rain-protection jacket. According to our network, this has never ever happened. Fabric development is a long and costly process, with the usual objective being to create a fabric that can be used for a variety of applications, making it more versatile, hence more economical. Not TRITON! The ASSOS requirements for how our sturmPrinz will perform under wet racing conditions are very different than those needed to create, for example, a rain jacket for walking or fishing. The sturmPrinz use two versions of TRITON. The front panel features TRITON V1, a robust fabric engineered to be more resistant, and the back panel uses the lighter, more breathable TRITON V2.

WHAT IS IT? It’s a light cycling cap made with slightly elastic anti-rain TRITON fabric, featuring taped seams. Use it as an insulation / protection cap in harsh weather conditions. When temperatures drop, use the roboCap underneath.

WHAT IS IT? This is a brand new ASSOSoire item. Specifically developed for cold rainy days when water becomes uncomfortable on your hands, the rainGlove insulates your hands ideally, providing warmth. And thanks to its ultralight neoprene fabric, it does not let cold water penetrate. It is tailored to provide pre-shaped form with minimal seams. The inner palm features specific proGrip treatment to ensure handlebar contact in slippery conditions. When temperatures drop further, wear the new L1 insulator glove underneath.

OVERSHOES This new, next generation of ASSOS s7 booties is built using the same, newly developed “pattern design chassis” featuring the minimum number of seams necessary, providing a snug, low-volume contouring fit. Toe and heel feature extra reinforcement against abrasion, and the reflective zippers are placed slightly asymmetrically towards the outside, to ensure increased comfort and water protection. All the s7 booties feature the same (but different versions of) custom-made, water-repellant airBlock strataGon fabric, each calibrated to best suit its climaRange purpose. ASSOS first introduced the toeCover a few years back. Now with the s7 we have perfected it. Use it as the sole layer on cooler days or as extra protection device between shoe and bootie. Another ASSOS first is the new aftersnowBootie s7, developed for the needs of the internal ASSOS Werksmannschaft to keep calves dry from road spray. During most of the winter prototyping tests the ASSOS Werksmannschaft does in Switzerland, we have beautiful, sunny winter days, but the roadside snowbanks are always melting, leaving the roads permanently wet. This causes tires to constantly spray water upward onto the lower inner leg. The aftersnowBootie addresses this issue, providing you with a dry, totally comfortable ride. All the s7 booties are built with low volume and light weight in mind, providing a snug, racingCut fit. Knowing this, please exercise caution when putting them on. S7 booties are beautifully crafted, full of details to provide you with a worry-free, totally comfortable winter ride in style, perfectly matching your entire ASSOS outfit.

MAYBE ONE IS FOR YOU?”

THE OFFICIAL BIKE

The official équipeCampionissimo racing device, the G731, began as a “hobby” with the inner core of équipeCampionissimo. Thanks to ASSOS know-how, experience, carbon expertise (ASSOS invented the first carbon-fibre frame in 1976) and the company's extensive global network of specialists, we (équipeCampionissimo and Goomah) have taken our value of commitment to the next level, creating an exclusive équipeCampionissimo-engineered racing bike. No reinventing the wheel, no revolution. Instead, we took proven, leading technologies and combined them with a geometry that suited our taste, and engineered it the way we like a racing bike to be made and behave: Quick, laser sharp response, high speed stability, maximized comfort, light enough, but tough enough to avoid fatal breakage. Many ASSOS-engineered products start out as an idea, driven by curiosity and passion. The world does not need another cycling frame, but ASSOS Centro Studio (the R&D + Refinement lab) does need to be continuously challenged, researching all aspects of cycling to engineer the pinnacle of high performance in cycling gear. After all, we are the cycling apparal R&D+R company – without the bike at the center of all our activities we have no reason to exist. ASSOS made its name in cycling. Development of our own racing device started off three years ago with the first prototypes, the G.729 evolving into the G.730 (neither ever commercially available), resulting in the brand new, unique G731. How?

GOOMAH It is a practical impossibility for a cycling apparel company to internally develop, from scratch, an impeccable high performance racing device like the G731. The key word for the outstanding quality of the result is Access – make available and integrate competence and know-how through the unique, global ASSOS network.

frame creation. ASSOS holds a minority stake in Goomah SA.

What is carbon fibre? It’s a synthetic material just like the primary components of ASSOS textiles. To create the G731, it started by finding the right fibre, an ASSOS Textile Lab specialty! Development took its course and the engineering of the frame and creation of the physical prototype was assigned to a group of European carbon specialists who usually develop and create avant-garde carbon-fibre components for America’s Cup racing, Moto GP and GT1 endurance car racing. Every aspect, every component of the G731 has been designed, evaluated and approved by a specialist. It is the result of 23 highly skilled individuals taking part in the creation process – from fibres and epoxy to tooling, molding, geometry, math, aerodynamics, material fatigue, componentry, handcrafting, assembly, paint and performance testing, to delivering a total comfort riding experience – all made by Goomah.

The Goomah G731 is the one and only official ASSOS Werksmannschaft racing device. It features, in brief: * Custom engineering * Made exclusively for the needs of the ASSOS Werksmannschaft. * Matrix surface mapping Uses three different strengths of high modulus carbon fibres. This means the frame is not made with the same carbon modulus all over. Instead, depending on the area, the G731 team adjusted strength and stiffness, searching to minimize unnecessary micro shocks, in pursuit of total comfort. We feel that producing a super stiff, super rigid frame without providing a comfortable ride is simply useless, unless your discipline is the 1-km sprint. * Frame set-up tech, power balance compensator

The result – G731 – has provided so much knowledge and joy, so many thrills, and such a promising potential for more, that the development team decided to form its own, independent Swiss cycling engineering company called Goomah SA, to possibly further engage in cycling

The G731 was engineered in Europe and is physically manufactured in the country with the most skilled hands when it comes to producing high quality, labor-intensive carbon fibre bicycles – Taiwan.

The right-rear-end of the frame is calibrated to be stiffer than the left. This to compensate for the torsional flex that a one-sided powertrain generates under maximum force. * BB30 bottom bracket Narrower, more torsional strength, less weight,

less power loss. * Inside cabling For esthetic correctness and a clean, quality look. * Integrated seat tube Less weight and increased stiffness. * CNC alloy seat clamp * Braze on front derailleur Gives a professional, quality finish. * DI-2 compatible Provides an esthetically pleasing solution. * Fork: 1-1/8, 1-1/2, 329g. + / - 7.5% tolerance * Sizes: S - M - L - XL, 947g. size M + / - 7.5% tolerance MSRP €2,800*, frameset (includes frame, fork, seat clamp, headset) * retail price may vary depending on country, duty, taxes The official ASSOS Werksmannschaft racing frame device. Custom engineered and exclusively built by Goomah for ASSOS Werksmannschaft. This is the one and only! For riders who search for the perfect bike to complete their ASSOS riding experience. Handmade in limited numbers, available at selected ASSOS retailers worldwide, starting September 2011.

WHAT IS IT? A fusion of two legendary ASSOS products, climaJet and luftSchutz, creating a compact all-around wind/rainbreaker high performance insulation shell. Available in two versions: 1. sV.climaSchutz – shellVest, sleeveless 2. sJ.climaSchutz – shellJack, long sleeves

ALS CLIMARANGE All-season.

HOW TO USE IT? Created to be your best friend, climaSchutz protects you from wind, drizzle, light rain and cold. Ideally suited for training and or racing in changing and cooler weather conditions, use it to insulate your body on cool, damp early morning rides, long downhills and, of course, when exposed to light rain.

ALS TIPS climaSchutz protects from the outside, which also means that outbound moisture transfer is slowed. This happens regardless of the breathability of the wind/rainbreaker fabric. Consequently, we do not recommend using shells (regardless of brand) when riding very hard for long periods of time because the body will sweat more, dehydrate faster and, in the process, loose essential minerals. To minimize this effect, climaSchutz incorporates lateral air vents to accelerate evaporation and cool more effectively.

TECHNOLOGICAL ENGINEERING The requirements in the technical briefing from the internal ASSOS Werksmannschaft to the ASSOS prototyping studio were simple to put on paper but difficult to put into production: “Give us the best of all worlds! Light weight, low volume, superior breathability, thermal insulation and good rain protection. Oh, and while you’re at it, make the finished product transparent so we can quickly spot our teammates under inclement racing conditions.” The ASSOS design team did it!

KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS • AEPD — racingCut. Ergonomically shaped to fit your body in the cycling position. Clicks on and moves with you. • climaJet textile, a proprietary fabric developed in the ASSOS textile lab. Its unique characteristics include “transparency,” elasticity and increased water protection. • Special fabric and advanced tailoring techniques reduce or eliminate distractions from noisy rustling and flapping as speed increases. • Ventilated side and arm panels accelerate the evaporation process. • ASSOS “pocket slots.” The lower rear panel of the climaSchutz features two openings cleverly positioned over your jersey / jacket pockets. Designed to serve not only as ventilation slots but also as access points to inner pockets without removal or excessive maneuvering of the jacket. • Rear panel emergency pocket. • Extended rear panel protects lower back from road spray and dirt. • Adjustable elastic “snuggies” at neck and wrist ensure proper insulation and stability. • “ASSOS easy entry system” for a faster, safer zippered closure.

CONCLUSION The climaSchutz vest and jacket shells are the ideal all-around insulation / protection solution for allweather, all-season performance cycling. Engineered to be low volume, they exemplify the ASSOS goal: create purpose-driven garments that work!

WHAT IS IT? It’s the newly created ASSOS longsleeve insulator jacket, the spiritual successor to the elementOne.

ALS CLIMARANGE Outfit Spring.1 and Fall.4

HOW TO USE IT? iJ.tibuRu.4 is your second layer outer shell garment, engineered to function perfectly within your ALS (Assos Layering System). Use it in cooler riding conditions when you want a heavy longsleeve jersey. The tibuRu operates best when used in combination with the next-to-skin ASSOS interactive body insulator underneath.

ALS TIPS Use it in combination with your s5 shorts or your T.607. When temperatures do drop, combine your tibuRu with an ASSOS outer shell such as the blitzFeder or climaSchutz vest or jacket. This allows you to extend its versatility and enjoy it for winter riding as well.

THE CONSTRUCTION The tibuRu features 14 patterns, 4 different textiles and 12 components. • ASSOS cycling-specific body-mapping pattern design: Front and upper arms feature ASSOS fleecy type RX fabric, while rear panel is made out of RXQ (slightly lighter version of RX), to ensure proper body clima control. • Integrated ASSOS rear stabilizer panel design, enabling the tibuRu to click onto your body, reduce vertical stretch and keep loaded pockets positioned properly. (ASSOS patent No. EP 1 891 868.) • Three rear pockets, zippered safety pocket, rear reflective visibility stripes.

CAMPIONISSIMO AEPD racingCut. The tibuRu cut is based on the evolution of the Uno summer jersey. This gives it a snug, anatomical, pre-shaped fit. Tailored to contour to the body in the cycling position; clicks on, then follows your movements.

The bonKa operates best when used in combination with the next-to-skin ASSOS interactive body insulators.

ALS TIPS ASSOS offers 7 climarange - specific interactive body insulators. Preferably, use the bonka with mod.interactive.6. However, the ALS is a guideline. Using a lighter and or heavier next-to-skin interactive body insulator, you can perfectly calibrate your needs and extend climaRange use. When riding conditions are around 0°C(32°F), try wearing two layers: interactive fall.4 combined with interactive winter.6 and the iJ.bonKa.6 over it. It works! The iJ.bonKa.6 has been designed to function perfectly within the system: combine it with the ASSOS LL.716 tights for maximum performance.

TECHNOLOGICAL ENGINEERING The iJ.bonKa.6 represents core competence at its finest: ASSOS custom, exclusive avant-garde fabrics combined with legendary ASSOS pre-shaped, specific riding position pattern design knowhow. Engineered using the ASSOS cycling-specific science of body-mapping pattern design.

PATTERN

MAPPING

Meaning, applying performance specific textiles on various parts of the cycling body to ensure perfect body temperature control under cold, winter riding conditions. We must protect and insulate your body, not suffocate it!

THE CONSTRUCTION The iJ.bonKa.6 features 32 pattern pieces, 6 different textiles and 13 components. - ASSOS technology TwinDeckFoiling in the chest and upper arm sections is a labor-intensive double-layer construction, a combination of strataGonUltra airBlock textile outside and RXQ fabric inside. Why? More effective insulation, better contouring fit. The chest and elbow areas feature an additional, in-between wind protection layer. - Inside the collar area, the iJ.bonKa.6 features an additional, ergonomically shaped inner layer turtleneck construction that contours to your chest and collar perfectly. This enables you to work with the front main zipper as an additional ventilation device on uphills, without decreasing chest and collar insulation. - Rear panel features ASSOS RX textile for enhanced ventilation, allowing the iJ.bonKa.6 to transport vapour effectively. - Integrated ASSOS rear stabilizer panel design, enabling the iJ.bonKa.6 to click onto your body, reduce vertical stretch and keep loaded pockets where they need to be: in position (no sagging). ASSOS patented – often imitated, never equalled. - Side panels and lower arms are made out of the new ASSOS airBlock membrane textile, strataGonMedium.

CAMPIONISSIMO AEPD Anatomical fit, ergonomically preshaped. Tailored to fit the body in the cycling position, incorporating the ASSOS science of area cycling body-mapping – different textiles shaped and formed into position – allowing your iJ.bonKa.6 to do the job properly. Clicks on, then follows your movements. Very important! It is essential that you choose your perfect size. Your iJ.bonKa.6 can function properly only when it conforms to your body in the tucked position. Available in two specific pattern design versions: 1. mod. CENTO – tailoring contours to the competition slimFit cycling body type. 2. mod. MILLE – tailored to suit the more robust, performance regularFit athletic body type.

taking care of moisture management. ASSOS technology TwinDeckFoiling is used on the front and upper arm panels, providing increased contouring, four-way stretch fit and accelerated moisture transfer properties. Although a more expensive assembly process, the advantages provided justify the cost. strataGon is the ASSOS textile family of airBlock, a laminated, high performance smart fabric: less volume, improved insulation, better impermeability and FASTER microClima control due to “body temperature response function” (patent pending). ASSOS strataGonUltra features the latest in membrane technology, the “flexible barrier function”: when the temperature is low the membrane reduces permeability, meaning the membrane “closes,” which helps retain body heat. As the temperature inside your microClima increases, the membrane “opens” to enhance the evaporation process, ensuring stabilization of your body temperature. ASSOS strataGonUltra allows for proper body temperature management. The advantages and uniqueness of the new ASSOS strataGon generation of laminated fabrics is that they get the job done FASTER, and feature a LOWER VOLUME to weight ratio than any other membrane textiles currently used in cycling apparel.

THE KEY FABRIC

KEY FEATURES

Your iJ.bonKa.6 uses the ASSOS airBlock strataGonUltra textile. This latest ASSOS fabric “jewel” is able to protect and respond intelligently to changes in climatic conditions and body temperature. Featuring extreme elasticity that results in a garment that fits, insulates and follows your body better. In the case of iJ.bonKa.6, the innovative uniqueness lies in the garment engineering. Instead of applying a traditional membrane sandwich (textiles glued together), ASSOS opted for its newly developed TwinDeckFoiling technology solution: stratagonUltra is used as the outer layer and functions as a super light, super elastic shield, ensuring thermal response action, windblock function and water resistance. Underneath you find the non-glued RXQ inner layer insulator fabric. Its duty is to maintain a stable microClima by insulating you thermically and

WHAT IS IT? LL.fugu 7 stands the for the seventh ASSOS climaRange — winterPlus — and the LL.fugu represents the ultimate development stage of the s5 next generation of ASSOS tights. They are the most complex, technically advanced ASSOS winter tights in the range, engineered for freezing riding conditions.

ALS CLIMARANGE WinterPlus

ALS Tips As the first next-to-skin layer, always use an ASSOS interactive body insulator under your LL.fugu. Experiment, and develop your own ALS. Depending on the intensity of your ride, winterPlus.7 is not always necessary. Available with or without insert. Why? LL.fugu without an insert lets you wear your regular ASSOS shorts underneath or, when temperatures drop to extreme conditions, you can wear your ASSOS knickers as your first layer. This will give you an additional layer of protection. The no insert version also lets you use your LL.fugu for cross-country skiing or running, making your fugu more versatile. LL.fugu is best used in combination with fuguJacket, new fuguGlove, new fuguBootie, new fuguCap or fuguHelm and, of course, new fuguSocks. It does not get any warmer than this.

ENGINEERING The LL.fugu is built following ASSOS body-area-mapping theory. The garment is designed to contour to your body in the cycling position, taking into account wind exposure, leg rotation, body part protection and the physiology of the cycling body when excercising. Technically, it is based on the LL.716 platform but incorporates stronger thermal insulating fabrics and a heavier version of the strataGonMedium airBlock membrane fabric. However, the genius of LL.fugu lies in its upper-body construction: ASSOS has integrated an anatomically cut layer of body insulation, which means wearing only one additional ASSOS interactive body insulator underneath. Wear your LL.fugu with a next-to-skin layer plus your fuguJacket and you’re done, ready to face subzero riding conditions with the smallest volume of garments necessary (ASSOS has obtained a patent for this type of apparel engineering).

NEWS_W11


ASSOS WINTER_Layout 1 05/08/11 11.00 Pagina 29

THE CONSTRUCTION The LL.fugu is built out of 20 panels, using 9 different textiles and 15 components, all carefully engineered, defined and applied. The front leg and side panels are anatomically preshaped and made out of strataGonMedium airBlock fabric with additional, low-volume next-to-skin insulation fabric underneath. The crotch panels feature RXplus fabric, an even warmer version of the ASSOS RX thermofleece material, which provides maximum thermal insulation while allowing extended freedom of movement. The upper-body area has been designed to encapsulate, providing an extra layer of thermal insulation fabric between your next-to-skin ASSOS interactive underwear and your fugu jacket.

AEPD Tailored to fit in the cycling position. “Clicks on” your body when tucked. Follows your movements without restriction. The tricky part of designing longlegged performance cycling tights is the knee zone. When applying a membrane textile in this crucial area, the task of providing effective wind blocking while allowing freedom of movement becomes extremely challenging. The result achieved with the LL.fugu, like all the other ASSOS winter tights, is magic. Its high performance attitude and total comfort is achieved through the sum of its construction, not because of a single attribute. ASSOS know-how and expertise. Touch, ride, believe. VERY IMPORTANT: It is essential that you choose your perfect size. The LL.fugu can function properly only when it closely conforms to your body when in the tuck position. When you stand upright, the bibs will pull and feel all wrong. But this is correct! Bend forward, assume the cycling position and you will feel the garment fall into place, relieving the pressure on your shoulders. Shorts, tights and knickers must contour to your body like a second skin, as wrinkle-free as possible. The goal of ASSOS apparel design is to help you achieve this perfect fit.

TEXTILE There is no key fabric used in the LL.fugu. Instead, it is a matrix of nine different textiles, each anatomically patterned and strategically placed. The key protection area is the front leg part. Not one, heavy, laminated windblock fabric with reduced elasticity; instead, ASSOS incorporates its TwinDeck technology, meaning double-layer construction. The outer material is the new, ASSOS-developed strataGonMedium airBlock fabric. Inside is a second, freely moving next-to-skin interactive insulating material. This combination provides total wearing comfort, maximum freedom of rotation and an excellent wind and cold protection barrier for critical body parts. This is ASSOS know-how transformed into one amazing product.

KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS + The LL.fugu is built following ASSOS body-area-mapping theory. + LL.fugu construction comprises 20 panels, 9 different textiles and 15 components, all carefully engineered, defined and applied. + The genius of LL.fugu lies in its upper-body construction, called torsoCapsule. This ASSOS-patented design integrates an extra layer of warmth between your next-to-skin insulator and your fuguJacket. + Campionissimo AEPD racingFit. Clicks onto your body when in the tuck position. Ergonomic construction provides total freedom of movement. No excess material allows for effective body temperature control and total comfort when riding. + ASSOS TwinDeck system solution: The side and front leg panels are anatomically preshaped and made out of strataGonMedium airBlock fabric combined with an additional, low volume, free moving, next-to-skin insulating fabric underneath. + TwinDeck continous: The strongest, most crucial muscles of your cycling legs are actually in your buttocks. The LL.fugu has you covered, ideally protecting your “power machine.” + blasenSchutz: a strataGonUltra airBlock protection insert over the genital area. Why? It protects your bladder from chilly winds, hence reducing the need for urination. + Available with S5 Mille elastic interface insert, or without, for multisports use.

CONCLUSION Ultimate protection. For riders who won’t stop, regardless of weather conditions.

ALS CLIMARANGE Spring.1 and Summer.2

HOW TO USE IT? Always in combination with the ASSOS interactive body insulator.3 as the first layer, directly on your skin. This allows your SS.1 to operate perfectly.

ALS TIPS Extend its climaRange by combining it with ASSOS arm warmers and a heavier ASSOS interactive body insulator underneath.

ENGINEERING ASSOS rarely releases a new product with just new graphics. While we love and admire great new looks, we don’t really care unless there is technological substance within. By introducing the new SS.UNO, we are further perfecting the term “ASSOS performance cycling jersey” and elevating our standard jersey to new heights.

THE CONSTRUCTION The SS.UNO features 31 parts: 4 textiles, 15 patterns, 12 components. NEW Type.vX121 custom-made ASSOS fabric, specifically developed for the SS.UNO, insulates, protects and maintains your body temperature. The idea of using spandex textile for the arm panels was first introduced by ASSOS in the early 90’s with the SS.UNO ’s grandfather, the mod.Uni. On the SS.UNO we have further perfected the fit, by pattern design and type of textile used. Full front zipper for better ventilation, three rear pockets, plus zippered storage safety pocket, meshed

ALS CLIMARANGE hotSummer

ALS Tips Not just for those few days of extremely warm summer riding conditions. Instead, when used in combination with additional layers, it can function as a superLeggera gilet, an outfit range extender for your ASSOS wardrobe. On a warm spring or cold summer day, use your superLeggera in combination with a longsleeve ASSOS interactive body insulator underneath. Very nice, indeed!

THE CONSTRUCTION New textiles, new pattern design. The superLeggera (unisex) features 36 parts: 5 textiles, 19 patterns, 12 components. The superLeggera is engineered using the ASSOS cycling-specific science of bodymapping pattern design, which is applying specific textiles to suit specific applications. Hence, the wind-exposed front panel construction is a bit heavier than the rear panel construction, which has the objective of protecting you from the sun’s rays but in as light a manner as possible. New Type.vX121 custom-made ASSOS fabric is used on the front panel. It insulates and protects you properly from oncoming winds but feels light enough so as not to bother you. The rear mid-panel features ASSOS-patented Stabilizator technology, meaning the central panel blocks vertical stretch, preventing the jersey fit from sagging and providing an ideal “click on” fit. The side panels are made out of ultralight 4-way contour stretch fabric. Full front zipper for better ventilation, three rear pockets, plus a new, superlight easy-access front safety pocket.

CAMPIONISSIMO AEPD For this new superLeggera, we started off by designing a complete new pattern design to best suit the sleeveless application. Available in two specific pattern designs: Unisex & Lady (petite). Anatomical fit, pre-shaped, ergonomically correct. Tailored to fit the body in the cycling position. Clicks on, and just feels right.

THE CONSTRUCTION In the world of cycling apparel, patents are very rare. In the case of the T.Lady s5, two lady-specific ASSOS innovations have obtained a patent. First is the ABC Closure System specifically engineered to fit a woman’s body, creating the perfect female fit solution for bib construction. Providing total wearing comfort, by means of the Y-panel design that contours in-between instead of over the breasts, it incorporates the ABC Closure System, which allows you to tailor the bib length to your liking and to more easily dress / undress. The second patent is for the construction of the leg grippers. Instead of full-circumference leg grippers, ASSOS developed a sewing construction that allows half-circumference grip without losing stability. Why? Because the female body naturally stores bit more fat in the thighs, and the leg grippers on female shorts often provoke an esthetically unpleasing picture. Not anymore! Now women can enjoy a proper leg fit – the shorts stay in position – without the unflattering skin impressions. The heart of any shorts is the protection insert, and the T.Lady features the legendary ASSOS custom elastic interface insert. It is the result of a six-month field analysis in which 112 female cyclists participated, back when ASSOS first launched the Comfort Revolution (first elastic insert) over 10 years ago. Since then, the ASSOS Lady insert has been refined and perfected, today featuring s5 waffle technology that makes it 35% more breathable.

CAMPIONISSIMO AEPD Lady specific pattern design takes into account female physiology and proportions. The T.Lady is preshaped, ergonomically designed to fit your anatomy correctly in the tuck cycling position. At ASSOS we strive to obtain these results with as few panels as possible, placing the necessary elastic seams where you won’t feel them, but sufficient to allow the garment to function properly, enhancing your comfort and performance. Tailored to contour and protect your body intelligently, without restriction, the T.Lady provides total freedom of mind and movement.

THE KEY FABRIC Like all the other s5 generation of shorts, the T.Lady features the Type.434 custom textile blend, a fabric specifically designed and engineered for cycling applications by ASSOS Textile Lab Lugano. This fabric is not commercially available. Why a custom fabric? Because, for us, the fabric characteristics needed to produce high performance cycling shorts are unique, and it’s not acceptable to use a standard, and less expensive, off-the-shelve spandex blend. The Type.434 features: - frameReturn powerMatrix — superFlat macrodimension fibre, enabling extremely dense knitting construction per square inch, controlled elasticity and return stretch, hence more soft muscle compression, more protection in case of a crash and more resistance to abrasion. - ASSOS iceColor technology — reduces heat absorbtion, keeping you cooler, enhancing endurance and performance. UV 50+ - P.A.T. — Permanent Antibacterial Treatment. Inhibits bacterial formation, increasing hygiene, prolonging fabric performance and features, and reducing odours.

CONCLUSION The new T.Lady provides ASSOS shorts technology specifically tailored to accommodate the female body. A true value when intelligent riding comfort and protection is required. Have a good ride!
