Assos T.milleShorts_s7 Bib Shorts
Building off the venerable neoPro_s7 bib short platform the Assos T.milleShorts_s7 bibs feature high quality fabrics and design, combined with a perfected fit for optimized comfort and performance. Never before has Assos or any other manufacturer served up so much value in a single product. And while this may be the entry level choice in the Assos line, it excels far past most competitors top offerings.
All panels of the T.milleShorts_s7 bibs are constructed from Assos's proprietary Type 429 Lycra. This fabric is low volume and low weight which make these shorts feel like an extension of your body. The sheer and taught qualities of Type 429 provide you with a perfect balance of muscle compression and elasticity with superior moisture wicking capacity. And although you get compression for muscle support and improved blood flow, it has the right amount, so the shorts never feel tight and confining. All short panels are anatomically cut patterns, that when sewn together, form a uniformed and anatomically correct fit for your body when postured in the cycling position. This is called AEPD II or Advanced Ergonomic Pattern Design.
Assos uses the familiar Y7 Bib Carrier strap design for support. These straps are s-shaped, super flat and move towards the outside of your chest which offer better support while being lower profile. Thanks to Assos, bib straps no longer have to sit directly on your clavicle. The Y7 carriers offer the support you need while feeling like they are not even there.
The insert is elastic, so it will stretch while you are cycling to help cut down on friction from chafing. The chamois features GoldenGate technology, which means it is only attached at the front and rear of the insert, allowing the un-stitched center to free float and act as if it were a natural extension of your body. These innovations give the S7 chamois an organic and comfortable sensation. The padding and support comes from the Assos designed memoryFoam which features a shock absorbing, closed cell foam construction. The memoryFoam padding returns to its original form as soon as pressure is released. This means that every time your pedaling position changes, you move on the saddle or shift your weight, memoryFoam foam fills the gap. The foam is placed in strategic areas including around each side of the prostate area to create a well for pressure release. The top layer of the chamois is billed as Assos superAir and is located directly under the top sheet. This waffled pattern design dissipates heat by creating proper air flow, while simultaneously wicks moisture and perspiration away from your body. Anti-bacterial threading is used on the top sheet to help keep the top pad clean and sanitary.

Tired of being between most company's sizes (5 7, 130 lb = M, 6 3, 240lb = L) and questionable durability, I decided to go "high end" and try these. Im 5 11, 165lb, 32 waist, and these fit PERFECTLY! Just snug enough to support, no constriction, no binding, free movement, no wrinkles. Nice chamois, positioned UNDER me while riding. I wanted to find faults with fancy bibs, but these shorts just work and work well. Only two rides in, and Im loving them. Time will tell if they disintegrate like another Italian company rhyming with Fast Nelly, so Ill withhold that last point until I see how well they hold up.
Pros Perfect fit (for me, at least), very comfortable.
Cons Still pricey, but worth it if they last.
