Assos is my go-to brand for cycling shorts and now for knickers. I cycle about 5x/week for 3+ hours at a time and the Assos products always provide much more comfort than some other brands I have tried (e.g. Gore, Pearl Izumi). Weather-wise, I use the knickers in weather below 50 degrees F and in rain. As noted by other reviewers, the knickers did ride up a bit in the calf but nothing too annoying - I find bib tights a little to restrictive in the ankle area so this is a small tradeoff for me.
This was my first pair of Assos gear and I have to say that I was not disappointed. They are very comfortable for fall days on the bike when you want your knees covered without having to wear knee warmers. In fact, the chamois is so comfortable I just ordered a pair of their Mille bib shorts for warmer weather. Time will tell but the fabric seems very durable and they seem to be well made. I hope to get several seasons of wear out of these!
Assos size has changed some. Iï¿½m 6ï¿½3ï¿½ and 220 lbs and XL fits me well it used to be XLG or TIR in Assos but now the XL is good. They are warm and it will update once I get to use them for a while but a crash has me out of commission for ride till mid December.
Riding for over 30 years (many centuries, numerous double centuries, Everest Challenge finisher) and have tried many brands of ride shorts and knickers, and I always return to Assos for the fit, comfort and quality. The Mille GT Spring/Fall knickers are my preferred shorts when the weather is cold or slightly chilly. I wear a size medium at 5'8" and 165 lbs. I always have two pair in my closet in case I ride back-to-back days!
Great bib for spring and fall temps..or winter here in Florida.
Assos quality cannont be beat - absolutely the finest available. Worth the higher price for sure. Assos has become my only cycle wear year round.
I used Assos bib knickers and bib shorts for over 20 years. Whenever I try a competitors brand they don't live up to the satisfaction of Assos shorts. The fit and chamois are the best, and these Mille GT Spring/Fall knickers are no different. Comfortable material and they keep you warm in the cooler weather.
