T.rallyShorts_S7 Lady Bib Shorts - Women's by Assos
With the release of the women-specific T. rallyShorts_S7 Lady Bib Shorts, our response was the same as when the men's model was unveiled during the last product cycle. We were surprised. We weren't surprised that the Swiss company was leaving the black ribbon for the dusty trail; rather, we were surprised that we never found it odd that a company based in such mountainous terrain hadn't produced mountain kit before. Like the men's model, the women's T. rallyShorts are set apart from the brand's often-fetishized road shorts by three key elements: padding, a revised chamois, and a new main body fabric.

They're also removable for days when your XC aspirations aren't as dangerous or you're just out spinning on the road.

The T. rallyShorts are built on Assos' s7 platform, which entails a host of bulk-reducing, anatomical features, but the goldenGa...
