Their clean lines, smooth construction and top-end fabrics just ooze cycling decadence, something which ASSOS prides themselves on. We got our hands on the new SS.laaLalaiJersey_evo8 Jersey and T.laalalaiShorts_s7 bib-shorts, but to save my sanity whilst writing this, they'll be referred to simply as jersey and bib-shorts...
SS.laaLalaiJersey_evo8 a.k.a "Jersey"
When it comes to jerseys, you really can't get sleeker than this one.
The race-fit jersey is like a second skin which offers a reassuring compression as you ride. Stabilizator S7 Knit technology lines the back panels to offer optimum ventilation and UPF30 for the hot blazing days. The main material used for this jersey is Sens Classic Tex which has been carefully developed to move and work with your body as you ride.
Vertical cargo pockets line the rear of the jersey with a secure stash pocket for your essentials and reflective piping is discreet to help keep you seen in low light conditions.
T.laalalaiShorts_s7 a.k.a "bib-shorts"
Completing the look are these bib-shorts. They're like your go-to 'little black bib-shorts' for cycling in because they're simply black, no fuss, no frills and absolutely comfortable.
S7 is the latest generation of technology from ASSOS which took 5 years to develop. With four-way stretch fabric, compression race-fit and a cushioning 8mm of memory foam padding with a patented elastic insert interface to reduce friction.
The straps have been laser cut, they're soft on the edges and the halter-neck style has a handy magnetic clasp which meets in the front of the body.
What can I say? It's ASSOS and true to form, they've delivered quality kit with a snug fit that inspires nothing but good ride vibes.
Yes, ok... their kit is a little expensive and the brand sits at the higher end of the affordability scale, however, there's a good reason why their bib-shorts cost £160 which you can read all about here.
Because of the minimal lines and efficient construction of both the jersey and bib-shorts, the kit has nothing but a clean discreet finish which initially comes across as unassuming, but don't they always say "less is more"?
