Since 1976, ASSOS of Switzerland has sought to provide innovative and technically outstanding cycling apparel with meticulous, lean design to aid riders in their quest to ride faster. During this time, the ASSOS R&D process and focus on the future has brought many of today’s cycling technologies to life. From the first carbon bike frame, to the implementation of DuPONT’s Lycra fabric in cycling shorts and the engineering of an elastic chamois interface. Behind every one of these innovations was one common theme; a dedication to purpose driven design and a mantra to never compromise on quality. Today, the ASSOS family prides itself in continuing this tradition everyday.
Enabling you to enjoy your ride in total comfort and well protected is what makes the ASSOS difference. Their prime objective is to maximize total comfort when in the saddle. Your ride, your time…that is what really counts.
ASSOS Mobile will be on site during the entire Malibu GRANFONDO event week, providing support and body care product samples for our participants.

Muscle cramps are caused by the nerve, not the muscle. Even the best-trained, most nutritionally fit athletes can suffer from them. Your muscles cramp up when motor neurons in your spinal cord start firing off spontaneously and repetitively. HOTSHOT stimulates TRP channels in your mouth, esophagus and stomach, sending signals to calm your hyper-excited neurons, so you can prevent and treat muscle cramps. Invented by a Nobel Prize-winning neuroscientist/endurance athlete, this sports shot works within minutes. HOTSHOT will be on the Malibu GRANFONDO course with bottles for anyone in need. Look for them with the 10 Speed Coffee truck!

Fete Today, “the Celebration in a Bottle”, is a smooth, fruit-forward Petite Sirah wine, locally grown by a small family-owned winery in the 2015 Wine Region of the Year – Lodi. CA. In 2011 the now owners of Fete Today were living in Stockton, CA, ground zero of the financial housing crisis. One day, through a random set of circumstances, on a drive through the Lodi countryside, they came across a home on a vineyard. It was a foreclosure that had been empty for three years. Both the home and the vineyard needed serious work. Through some unbelievable circumstances the deal went through and two “city kids” without an ounce of farming experience, ended up with five acres of petite sirah grapes. It has been four years of hard work, but they are now building a premiere wine brand and farming operation.
Fete Today is a wine created to encourage people to live lives full of celebration and joy. We are not guaranteed tomorrow, but we can Fete Today!

Corsa is a wine brand that is the result of two passions: Dolomite Road Cycling culture and wines from hillside vineyards in Northeast Italy. Jeff Morgenthal founded Corsa in January 2013 after many years as a wine professional and former racing cyclist in Road & MTB events. Many of the vineyards of the Northeast of Italy are green verdant valleys and Pre-Alp hills that also happen to represent some of the best Road Cycling in Italy. Jeff got his first dose of ‘La Dolce Vita’ in 1995 when he went to race for a month with the American-based Italian team Velo Veneto located in the foothills east of Bassano del Grappa. This experience exposed the budding young Restaurant-Service professional to new cultural paradigms previously unknown and the seeds for Corsa were sewn at that time. Corsa became a full realized wine brand in January of 2013 and continues to grow as the word spreads about the quality of the wines and the personal story behind the wines.
As endurance athletes who push our bodies to perform their best, we continually search for healthy, more effective alternatives to commercial sports nutrition products. After years of research, countless revisions, tweaking and testing based on feedback from professional athletes, the creator of Enduro Bites landed on the optimal combination of ingredients to support endurance performance.
Each Enduro Bites ingredient is carefully chosen for a specific purpose and combined into a great-tasting, bite-sized food that’s easy to eat and digest while training and racing. The development of Beta Red Pre-Workout Formula followed a very similar path. The result is the most effective pre-workout product available for endurance athletes.
Both Enduro Bites and Beta Red will be available at the venues and on-course for participants of the Malibu GRANFONDO to use both before and during the weekend’s events.
