New Assos Bib Shorts

Postby J Quinton » Thu Mar 20, 2014 4:28 pm

Gday,

Anyone had the chance to try the new Assos S7 bib shorts?

Are they better than the S5 models?

I have a 1200km, 4 day ride coming up. Torpedo 7 have the S5 Mille for $190. Or Ribble have the Cento with a tub of cream for $310. Worth the difference?

I have the mille and think they're great BTW.

Yes...get the S7 equipe. Have had S5 and the even better FI 13. S7 equipe are better again ($230 Ribble). Don't think you would need to spend more on the Cento's but am sure they would be great as well.

Good to know. I ended up buying some autumn/spring tights on special, and will wait for the current model to go on special.

holy thread revival Batman!!

Not able to find Castelli Kiss3 pad in new Castelli bibshorts, so looking at Assos bibshorts.

Main concern is the pad, need something that has a thicker/more dense foam pad. Latest Castelli pads (Kiss Air, or Proteggi X) are foam filled with larger air cells making them great for an hour then for me become uncomfortable.

Considering Assos T.equipe_s7 Bib Shorts, $230 at Wiggle.

Thoughts??

Yet to try them, my old ones are still going.

But ribble have same price as wiggle and mid10 code at present. Worth a shot.

My 2 pairs of Assos Mille bib shorts are 3 years old. I ride 3 times a week on average. Sadly, they both look AS NEW so I cannot even consider buying new ones.
Some say Assos is expensive but they are really value for money.

As to S7, you must purchase one that fits well and feels good. I tried Rapha bibs and frankly they just don't feel anywhere as comfy so sticking to Assos for now.

Have a pair of 2 y.o. Mille shorts, and bought a pair of s7 cento's at Christmas. Chamois better, the rest isn't. Very happy the outlet restocked Milles, got a new pair last week. 200 clams. They do me for 4-5 hrs.
