ASSOS products are considered by many world champions to be the most aerodynamic and comfortable of cycling clothes. The Swiss company is renowned for designs that mirror the on-bike body position of the rider, whether male or female, or engaged in track, road or mountain biking.
Cycling apparel made by ASSOS uses combinations of highly technical fabrics to ensure a lightweight, breathable and compressive garment that helps the cyclist achieve his or her goals or exceed them. And comfort is always a prime consideration, as exemplified by the ASSOS chamois pad and the company's various lines of cycling clothing and accessories appropriate for any season of the year, and a range of weather conditions and temperatures.
Witness the exploits of top-level international competitors like Nino Schurter who received a Gold Medal at the recent Rio Olympics. He also won the men's cross-country World Championship wearing durable ASSOS clothing that supported his body as he maneuvered his bike over the rough terrain of a world-level cross country course. This Swiss racer also won the overall UCI World Cup racing throughout the season in ASSOS cycling clothes. Likewise, another Swiss, Stefan Kung, currently riding with the BMC Racing Team, won the 2015 Individual Pursuit World Championship on the track wearing ASSOS cycling clothing.
What makes ASSOS cycling clothes the first choice of these and so many other professional cyclists? To start with, the clothes are handmade by seamstresses trained to meet ASSOS's exacting standards of excellence for its cycling apparel. Second, a selection of fabrics with various technical advantages that are used in the right combinations to create outstanding clothes whether they are bib shorts, jerseys and tights, or arm warmers, jackets and speed suits. And finally, what the company is perhaps most famous for, ASSOS's continuous research activities, particularly through wind-tunnel testing and working with the pros. This research has resulted in the development of cycling apparel that is aerodynamic, compressive, comfortable, and both low weight and low volume; the qualities that help riders deliver a superior performance.
Tour Cycling offers ASSOS base layers, long sleeve jerseys and jackets, any of which can be worn in combination to provide complete protection from cold, wet weather without sacrificing a racer's ability to ride with the all-out effort needed to win a road or mountain bike race.
