In 1976, ASSOS of Switzerland was founded by Toni Maier with an incredible innovation, the first carbon fiber bicycle frame. As he endlessly researched aerodynamics on the bike in the wind tunnel, Toni quickly realized that the clothes riders wore were indeed the main cause of drag.

This invention led professional teams to wear ASSOS shorts during the Tour de France, and to date ASSOS is proud to have contributed to more than 350 gold medals at World Championships and Olympic Games. ASSOS works side by side with the suppliers and the internal test team to produce fabrics that are optimally tailored to the needs of the drivers.
