To create the Trail Liner Bib Knickers, Assos merged the support of a bib, the storage of a pack, and the protection of pads from their bib short platform with floating pockets, a strategically placed insert, and a construction specific to off-road riding. Assos positioned two cargo pockets high enough along the lower back to avoid contact with the waistband, yet low enough for easy access to their contents under your jersey. Slim, dual pockets are spacious enough for an extra bottle, pump, multitool, keys etc. The raw-cut waist has been constructed with a tall V-shaped panel that comfortably molds to your lower abdomen while in the riding position, and Assos finished the hems with a raw-cut, silicone-backed design for a smooth, secure fit.
Assos' ultrasoft warp-knit Aerofit fabric has been applied to the legs for maximum ventilation. Its high elasticity and built-in odorControl will also help keep you cool and dry when things heat up. The waist, low-back panel, and backs of the knees are made of ASSOS-developed Push Pull warp-knit textile with high UV protection (UPF 50+). Highly breathable, this fine gauge knit is quick drying and very comfortable.
The liner bib knickers’ raw cut waist and hems create the smoothest transition possible between the fabric and skin, which yields more comfort and precise hold with less pressure. Their new waist construction, called AZPtech (abdomZeroPressure), was developed with a soft, highly elastic material to further improve the comfort and hold at the waist, minus any pressure or pinching.
