Assos Mille GT Bib Shorts C2

The Assos Mille GT Bib Shorts C2 are very comfortable, the pad is excellent, the straps are great and the fit is perfect for long days on the bike. If the leg length suits you there’s really nothing to dislike.

The chamois is a layered setup; 11mm of superAir microShock foam, with a 3D waffle-top sheet using Assos’ ‘Golden Gate’ technology – essentially a dense pad under a layer of antibacterial fabric that's only stitched in at the front and rear. This allows the pad to move with you better, rather than with the shorts.

These are a regular fit with a ‘Zero-Pressure’ waist, designed for endurance. It’s quite generous at the front which makes comfort breaks very easy.

The X-frame straps are comfortable – good and wide to spread the load – and the light leg grippers do a great job.

The leg length is on the short side, which is worth bearing in mind if you have long legs or just prefer long shorts.

The Type.429 fabric performs well on warm days, with no excessive dampness whilst working hard on longer climbs. The quality of construction is excellent with the stitching looking perfect after frequent washing.
