Assos Women's UMA GT Half Shorts relay signature ASSOS S7 generation technology and fabrics in a price-point package that renders them the ultimate choice whether it’s your first ride, an everyday sort of ride, or the big ride.

A bib-less women’s cycling short best suited to pedaling in pleasant weather, the UMA GT shorts are cut from proprietary Type.439 Diadema, a fabric chosen for its superior stretch, high-wicking and compression capabilities. Assos applied meticulous detail to the cut of these UMA GT bib-less cycling shorts to ensure a faultless fit whether you’re raking up summer miles or conducting indoor training sessions in winter by applying our super stretch aeroFit fabric on the abdomen. Additionally, the UMA insert is a fine demonstration of our investment in excellence; lightweight, breathable and cut to contour with their acclaimed goldenGate technology. These are women’s shorts for cycling designed by those who know shorts best.

Features:
  • S7 generation: the latest generation of ASSOS cycling shorts, employing technology and fabrics engineered over a 5-year period.
  • Type.439 Diadema: A textile design created with our fabric suppliers to meet our demands of performance, comfort and durability. Unique within the industry, the weave has two different rates of 4-way stretch, requiring great expertise to maximise the elasticity of the fabric on the cutting table.
  • UMA insert: Cut narrower at the front to reduce bulk and increase comfort, this insert has been specifically constructed for female riders but employs all of the standard ASSOS S7 generation technology, featuring 8 mm of memory foam for increased comfort.
  • female-specific regularFit: A body mapped performance fit that is a little less aggressive than our racingFit. The best of both worlds, where wearability and speed converge.
  • iceColor: A fabric treatment that reflects sunlight and thus reduces heat absorption to keep muscles cooler.
  • aeroFit: An ultra-luxe warp-knit fabric deployed in a double layer for the legs and abdominal area with a specific structure that works in favor of ventilation, contouring and providing the maximum comfort for unrestricted movement in or out of the saddle.
  • ASSOS goldenGate: A patented technology which augments the performance of the insert by allowing the most fluent movement with the body.
  • ASSOS waffle: A unique three-layer foam used in our inserts with perforations that make it light and highly breathable.
  • odorControl: An anti-bacterial treatment that reduces unpleasant odors and improves durability.

Assos Women's UMA GT Half Shorts (Black Series) (S)
The Assos short is without a doubt one of the best bike shorts one can buy. You do get what you pay for in regard to shorts. The less expensive the short, the lesser the quality and fit of the short. I ordered a small to test whether that size or the extra small is correct for me. I am 5"4" and weigh about 105 pounds. I ordered 3 extra small shorts directly from Assos last summer, and I should have tried them on much more quickly than I did. The extra small is truly an extra small, which is refreshing given so many companies will market something as "extra small" but it really fits like an American size 4. So fit is spot on the with sizing of Assos shorts. I did find the extra small a bit tough to get on, so hence trying the small. If you're not sure which size, I recommend ordering two shorts in two different sizes. The chamois pad is amazing in this short. I do need something robust so I'm not constantly feeling the road, so to speak. This will be my bike short of choice moving forward, expensive though they may be. I have previously worn Pearl Izumis and Castellis. I have found the Castelli short to be a bit too see through in regard to the fabric. The Pearl Izumi sizing just isn't that great for petites. Price point is great, but the fit not so much. Assos is highly recommended.
