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.
Our WorldTour short-sleeve race jersey, refined. The next-gen TARGA iteration is more comfortable than ever, combining aerodynamic speed and comfort that makes it virtually disappear when you’re in the saddle.
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, aeroFit 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: Pre-structured to increase capacity and stability while loaded. A flap secures personal effects, 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.The pockets and sleeves are made of our ASSOS-developed Push Pull warp-knit textile with high UV protection (UPF 50+). Highly breathable, this fine gauge knit with bi-stretch is quick drying and very comfortable.
When/How to use it?
Pair with the EQUIPE RS or RSR Bib Shorts S9 TARGA on fast, hot days for aerodynamics and comfort that exceed WorldTour equipment.
