Assos of Switzerland – Apparel

ASSOS of Switzerland’s mission is to provide innovative, technically outstanding cycling apparel with meticulous, lean design. Based in Ticino “Terra di Ciclismo”, Switzerland, ASSOS of Switzerland Gmbh was founded in 1976 with the creation of the first ever Lycra® cycling shorts.

Today, ASSOS proudly provides the Total Cycling Comfort to more than 30 countries around the world. Like with cycling, Assos works as a team that stands for a meritocratic, innovative, respectful, dynamic and fun workplace.
