Thatï¿½s right! These pants are out of this world. How so? They feel like a second skin, moving with every pedal stroke, enhancing my musculature appearance. You may even be convinced to wear these out in public. The perfect disguise, no. Awe-inspiring kit to exude confidence? YES! MIB got it right when they said this is the last suit you will ever wear. Once you shimmy into these performance digs and have that luscious and plush chamois brush upon your tuccus youï¿½ll realize just how luck you are. Fit true to size and are breathable so you can stay in the kitchen while your competition swelter in your heat.
Great laundry soap although a little on the pricey side. Been using once a week for about 5 weeks and I wash by hand in 2 buckets one soap one rinse, use 2 capfuls to about 3.5 gals of water and it seems to clean well and rinses out fully with 2 rinses.Normally wash 3-4 Castelli / Assos Bibshorts and 5-6 Castelli short sleeve jerseys and a lightweight cap and gloves per batch. All come out looking and smelling clean. Not much noticeable smell, makes you feel like you're cleaning not covering up odors and sweat. Ride 5-6 days a week, 22-28 per ride in Southern Florida ( hot and humid ) So cleaning out sweat is very important.My kits look and feel much cleaner and rinse out much easier that when I was using Tide detergent. I will keep using the Assos soap as long as it's available.
I now own 4 pair of Assos bib shorts, I ride frequently and rotate through them. I love these shorts! They are the only bibs that actually have space for the male anatomy, the cycling equivalent of a cod piece. I feel secure without feeling like my testicles are being pushed up into my abdomen. In some shorts the chamois isn't high enough in the front and the chamois ends midway across my penis (not a great place for chaffing!), but these are perfect. The rest of the chamois is well padded but not so much padding that I feel like I'm wearing a diaper. They are holding up well, I wash them after almost every ride.
So I had been using pearl izumi and Louis Garneau shorts... the most expensive LG pair was 150. Carbon ION. It was recommended that I try Assos, I bought the Evos and the RS( and after trying the EVOs I thought I was going to return the RS S9. Anyway, I thought what the heck they are half off and it was going to be $10 to return so I tried them and I loved them. Both the EVOs the S9s are way better than the LG or Pearl Izumi, I had two warm days in DEC and got 50 mi on each,, I think I like the S9s( better than the EVOs but I only got the one day for each before the weather turned cold again; I wear a L in the Louis Garneau and pearl izumi and an XL in the Assos ,,,,
