Sometimes it’s good to go off the beaten path, but not when it comes to choosing your cycling gear. The route we suggest you take is ASSOS of Switzerland. Launched in 1976. the performance cycling brand is best known for designing the first pair of Lycra shorts for riders - a signature style that it’s still redesigning nearly 40 years later. Using a combination of seamless designs, temperature regulating systems and carbon yarns, they’re hard to beat for quality and innovation.
