The Ultimate Fit For The Discerning Rider
The Assos Mille GT CS represents the next generation of bib shorts for the discerning rider, defined by its frictionless waist, refined air-cooling insert, and muscle-wrapping textile. The Mille GT is designed specifically for long training rides and deep endurance cycling. That said, it is also perfectly appropriate anytime you're in the saddle.
Assos took this generational redesign as an opportunity to make the MILLE GT better at the things riders loved about its predecessor, including the premium X-frame suspension carriage, a refined comfort waist fit, and a reduction in seams and weight (28% and 5g, respectively). The insert also got some attention receiving 3mm of additional cushioning.
Assos' featured Type 429 fabric wraps with a lightly compressive hold for a streamlined, breathable fit. When the gravel "road" becomes little more than a path and trail-side brush closes in, side panels of Bunny Hop technology add a barrier against abrasion that still stretches and compresses like a road specific textile courtesy of our woven, 50/50 polyamide and elastane blend.

My first set of off-brand no-namer bibshorts from the online retailer that starts with an A are more comfortable than these. I don't get it. These are supposed to be some of the best bibshorts with the best padding and I can't get through a 20 mile ride without discomfort whereas with ANY other bibshort I have ranging in price from generic to at least 150 bucks, I can go 40-60 miles before I really start feeling it. It's almost as if the padding doesn't come forward enough and it is not dense enough for my 200 lbs weight. I tried a few times in the ride to adjust, but no joy. Tried my other bike with a totally different seat, no joy. Wish I could return these.
A friend recommended ASSOS so I tried out two Jerseys and the Mille GT Bibshorts. These are now my favorite shorts (and jerseys) as they fit incredible well, look great, and just feel good wearing on any ride. ASSOS is my new favorite label. ASSOS is EXPENSIVE relative to other brands so I will typically look for discounts to justify the purchase. Their designers know how to create excellent product.
These are great bibs. I wore specialized SL bibs for many years before I decided to try these, and I wish I hadnï¿½t waited that long. Iï¿½ve been using three pair for three months and they could pass for new after many wearings and washings. And most importantly, they are very very comfortable!
Though $30 more than previous years Mille bibs, these are definitely better built. The X-Frame straps are cooler on warm rides, the chamois is a tad wider which helped me, the leg grippers are much better than the old school silicone bands, and lastly the junk cradle is a bit better. I have done several 4-6hr rides in these and really just forgot about them where in the past I would have to readjust the chamois to get the seams off my sit bone. I use these for endurance MTB and I have used Pearl Izumi, Giordana, Jakroo, Bioracer bibs as a comparison.
Iï¿½ve always heard Assos are the best and I didnï¿½t believe it until I got a pair. Super premium and Iï¿½d love to have 1-3 pair in my rotation but are they really that much better than the other big brands? Probably up to the user but I can definitively say these are the nicest bibs I own. Points of comparison: Le Col Pro Bibs, PI Pro bibs and a club kit with an Elastic Interface chamois.
Some changes to the straps I was not sure of. After a few rides, don't notice a difference between these a few older pairs of S5 Mille. They make great stuff and the best sign is you don't think about the bibs when you are riding, you just ride. Would buy again, and these guys get things out quick and keep you informed.
From day one I have never thought about them. Zero hot spots. I'm riding 6 days a week on a trainer or outside. Max trainer sessions of 4 hours. I do use shammy cream. Can't speak for the other models but these took a few weeks for my tummy to get used to. There was a little chaffing from the upper seam across the waistline. All good now though! Bought size medium. 5' 10'" 160#
