This is my third pair of Assos winter bibs. It fits great, the material quality and construction are awesome. Keeps me warm during the early morning winter rides here in California without overheating me when it gets warmer towards the end of my ride. I've tried other brands, but they don't compare. This is my favorite winter riding gear.
I just finished a 70-mile ride wearing these knickers (3/9/23, temps from 34 to 50 F or so). Gotta say these are working for me in a big way for winter-spring riding in SE WA state. The knickers have good compression and are well crated. I like the suspender design - just very workable. The interior leg fabric is good and provides ensures warmth - for me - on days in the mid-30's to 50's. Lastly, the cuffs are pronounced and have a compressive kick. Lastly, these were really reasonable. Given my positive experience with Assos knickers (2 other long-lasting pair), this was a no-brainer.
Iï¿½ve had many gloves, and suffer from cold extremities. These are the best Iï¿½ve used for below 50. Much better than Castelliï¿½s I bought and sold. In fairness, Iï¿½m an older rider, and struggle in the cold. Assos rarely lets me down.
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.
