ASSOS UMA GTV Bib Shorts C2
WHAT IT IS
A new solution for women’s cycling: comfortable, performance-tuned bib shorts that allow natural breaks without removing jerseys, vests, or shells.
WHY WE MADE IT
We took feedback on our T.LaalalaiShorts_s7 to heart, revisiting our women-specific design with an all-new solution that better facilitates natural breaks with two magnetic closures at the rear rather than a single closure at the front center. The textile was also improved, shedding grams and gaining permanent odor-control and active cooling. It’s also a deeper, richer black, which pops on the bike in full sunlight.
WHEN/HOW TO USE IT
For daily cycling and endurance epics. Pair with the UMA GTV Jersey for the ultimate experience in premium cycling comfort.
Ossidia sheds grams without sacrificing elasticity, compression, or UV protection (UPF50+). Odor control and active cooling are permanently integrated into the material itself, not applied as a topical treatment. A Tech Sheen Mesh insert stretches across the lower abdomen, accommodating aggressive bar drop and deep breathing during hard efforts.
C2 AEPD regularFit is based on our performance race models but tuned for comfort with a zeroPressure Waist. Streamlined performance for all-day cycling in our standard leg length.
- Bisiclick: Twin magnetic closures anchor the lower bib straps. Intuitive to connect and release, but secure enough to prevent unintentional unclasping.
- X-Frame: A bib suspension design that limits vertical stretch across the lower back, stabilizing the chamois and main body panel.
- Ultralight Leg Grippers: The 6cm bands are updated to eliminate seams and create a secure hold without restriction or transitional ridges between body and shorts.
UMA GT C2 INSERT
- Shock-Absorb Damping Mono: Compressive foam layers in an 9mm endurance platform. Thermoformed shaping reduces ridges and irritation.
- goldenGate: The stitching pattern anchors the front and back but lets the insert’s body float, allowing the chamois to move with your body rather than against it.
- 3D Waffle: A patented, three-layer, perforated foam that increases breathability and eliminates excess weight.
