Assos FI.13_S5 bib shorts review£219.99

Top-flight bibs

BikeRadar score4/5

Yes, the price is high, but there’s a lot going on in Assos’s top bib shorts. Several proprietary fabrics create a firm, supportive fit for the thighs, while the blue insert between the gossamer-thin bibs increases ventilation and helps maintain the garment’s shape.

Whether riding upright or deep in the drops, these retain a perfectly tailored (slim) fit. The foam insert’s multi-density, pre-curved construction is hidden under a dimpled top layer and dissipates pressure exceptionally well. These are as good as bib shorts get – it’s only that price that stops them getting a higher mark.
