BEHIND THE PRODUCT
We built a WorldTour jersey. Then we upgraded it for committed cyclists who sponsor themselves but demand pro-tier performance. Now we’ve upgraded it again. The TARGA generation incorporates the aerodynamic detailing of its predecessor with gains in comfort and structural stability. Performance, comfort, quality—the RS S9 TARGA’s excellence is something you feel in the saddle.
THE FINER DETAILS
The jersey combines a body of miniCheck Tex—responsible for the signature ASSOS jersey texture—with a Stabilizer insert to anchor the pockets. The blend resists odor while promoting breathability and cooling airflow. Sleeves and pockets of Push Pull warp knit add a breathable, bi-stretch fit that wraps in stabilizing stretch. The textiles provide UPF 25, 30, and 50+ for the front, back, and sleeves, respectively.
The most aggressive, most aerodynamic, most compressive, and—simply—the fastest option in our catalog, racingFit is built for the WorldTour, so no start line is beyond its scope. The second-skin fit is restrictive while standing, but it clicks into place in the saddle.
Bonded seams: We like our aerodynamic seams bonded, not sewn, reducing bulk, drag and potential for irritation. A clean finish indicative of engineering expertise and meticulous design.
TRIPLE RAMP POCKETS
Triple Ramp Pockets: Pre-structured to increase capacity and stability while loaded. A flap secures personal items, and an earphone port in the right pocket keeps headphone or radio wires discreet.
Raw-Cut Sleeves: Eliminating transitional ridges on the sleeves removes an aerodynamic impediment from the jersey's leading edge. We omit restrictive taping for a truly lie-flat, unrestrictive finish.
