DetailsThe ASSOST_FI.Lady is the new standard of performance in bibshorts, for those who loves to ride, specifically tailored to fit the female body.
How to use it? Directly on the skin of the lower body, using an ASSOS interactive body insulator as the first layer on the upper body, then the SS.Lady. In cooler conditions, complement the T_FI.Lady with a pair of legwarmers and always use ASSOS preRide chamois crème on your skin where it comes in contact with the insert area.
Construction & Textiles: In the world of cycling apparel, patents are very rare. In the case of theT_FI.Lady, 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 inbetween 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 theT_FI.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.
Like all the other s5 generation of shorts, theT_FI.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.
Campionissimo AEPD: Lady specific pattern design takes into account female physiology and proportions. TheT_FI.Lady is pre-shaped, 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, theT_FI.Lady provides total freedom of mind and movement.
Conclusion: The newT_FI.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!
Brand ASSOS Length No
This chart serves as an indication only. Exact sizes may vary depending on individual body structure. Bibs might pull when standing upright- this is normal. Assos products are tailored for the cycling position. Cut anatomically without movement restriction on the bike.
Assos garments are cut to fit a cyclists' body. Meaning, Assos contours your body, protecting it without applying pressure when you are on your bicycle.
Not buying the right size (too big or too small) will either result in comfort, performance, or longevity problems. If a garment is too big, it will provoke skin irritation (because the garment moves around causes friction) and it will not keep you dry enough (the Assos "als" principle cannot function properly). When a garment is too small, the seams and fabric are under too much stress and this wil result in fabric pilling and deterioration.
