In order to create a low drag, high-speed sock, Assos turned to the Aerodynamic Windchannel Stripes material, first deployed on their Speed Gloves and Speed Booties. This Lycra® blend warp knit is used across the ankles and cuffs, giving an incredibly snug and smooth fit with little to no creasing. As speeds increase it reduces drag to less than that of just your bare skin.
But not only that the bi-stretch textile also offers light compression, ensuring comfort as rides stretch into not just speed but endurance territory too. Elsewhere, the foot is composed of cool, breathable and fast-drying yarns. When the heat is high this keeps your feet fresher and more comfortable. Fast needn't sacrifice comfort after all.
The 18cm high aero cuff falls within UCI rules and the material composition maintains fit without the need for a silicone grip. A raw-cut edge also provides a smooth transition from sock to skin. consolidating those aero gains.
Pair with EQUIPE RSR equipment to net the maximum aerodynamic benefit during time trials and criteriums.
An 18cm (7in) cuff extends the aerodynamics without violating UCI regulations, and the material composition maintains fit without the need of silicone grip.
