Assos Equipe RS Rapidfire Chrono Booties are wind-tunnel tested and World Tour proven. They rewrite the manual for second-splitting speed. Those ultra-aero shoe covers in spacesuit silver spotted on the feet of the world’s fastest riders last year? Yes, you’ve come to the right place. Assos landed on a clean two-tone colorway for production, and they’re now officially known as the Equipe RS Rapidfire Chrono Booties.
They took inspiration from their aerodynamic Rain Booties, employing their waterproof 2L lower textile but reversing it to expose the slippery silver membrane. The top zip-free section is made with the same Cube textile used in the Rapidfire Chronosuit, ensuring light compressive support throughout the ankle and lower leg, which also aids in cutting through the air with its unique 3D structure we honed in the wind tunnel. Additionally, the zeroCuff creates the smoothest transition possible between your skin and the fabric, furthering the aerodynamic profile of the booties.
- Eva Kant: 2L waterproof textile constructed with a super light, foot-molding membrane that’s as protective as it is aerodynamic.
- Cube: Textile applied to the ankles, developed in the wind tunnel and featuring a woven jacquard 3D-structure that’s noted for exceptional moisture management, breathability, compressive qualities, and slippery speed.
- Zip-Free Construction: Inspired by the prototype booties worn to a Gold medal at the Men’s Time Trial at the Rio Olympics, this slip-on design eliminates clunky, drag-inducing closures.
- zeroCuff: A raw-cut, tape-reinforced edge at the cuff creates the smoothest transition possible between the leg and fabric. More comfort with less pressure.
Composition: 41% Polyester/ 36% Polyamide / 23% Elastane
