Assos H FI.Uno S5 Shorts

Price: 189.95
CL5209002


Contrary to belief, Assos has been making half-shorts all along; it's just that the H's make up about 10% of their short sales. The Assos H FI.Uno S5 short is the creme-della-creme of their half-short lineup. We know there's a place for the half-short in many a person's wardrobe. Especially amongst the modest, since they can get some baggy over shorts and ride Assos plush in secret. And those who find bibs constricting, these will free your torso. The side panels of the H FI.Uno S5 are made from Assos' new A430 fabric. It offers superior venting in comparison to the A360 used on the S2. Amazingly, A430 provides better muscle compression than A360. And it wicks sweat substantially faster. Do the fingertip test when you pull the S5's out of the box -- the sheerness of the A430 tells the story. A fantastic detail here, though, is that Assos uses a different fabric on the inner thighs, A431. Why A431? It has less stretch than A430, keeping the chamois in a more stable position in your crotch. And it's a more durable fabric, too, in order to minimize sweat-induced fabric degradation and potential piling of the inner thigh fabric cause by rubbing against your saddle. The front panels of the S5 are made from neither A430 nor A431. Rather, it's a high elastic fabric designed for a simple purpose: Reduction of pressure on your crotch. You'll spend a lot less time mid-ride reaching down into your shorts to readjust yourself. Gone are the days of your shorts contorting your goods in unpleasant ways. The feature that makes the S5 unlike other half-shorts is the front and rear waist panels. Assos eschews drawstrings because it's a sign that the fit is off to begin with. The front waist panel, which stretches all the way across the front half of the short is wide and soft and stretches well. The tag is outside the short so it doesn't chafe your skin. Across the back, Assos uses a firmer, or less-stretchy spandex so the back of the short doesn't move around any more than it should. The key element of any short is its chamois. The S5 holds nothing back. The new FI.13 chamois is actually two separate pads with two separate stitchings. The layer next to your skin is softer than what you get on the S2. While it lacks in none of the elasticity of the original FI.13 chamois, it somehow feels less rubbery than the original. It's softer and it compresses less; it stretches it's not under so much tension. In other words, when it's being stretched, it doesn't try to snap back into place, so it won't abrade your skin as much. The chamois is dimpled, too, to facilitate heat ventilation. You'll also note a broad cut at the front of the chamois to further reduce pressure -- seen by the wide stitching in the front of the short. The edges of the S5 side panels have reflective tabs. The bottoms of the legs have Assos' external grippers. What Assos does in terms of color is keep the back panels black regardless of the color of the front panels.


Assos T FI.13 Lady S5 Bib Shorts - Women's

Price: 359.95
CL5209007


With all of your choices for women's shorts in the marketplace, one ride in the Assos' T FI.13 Lady S-5 will make you a devotee. They stand apart from the rest, both aesthetically and functionally. They're 25% lighter and 35% more breathable than Assos' other women's shorts -- making them especially delightful for warm weather riding. And they offer 18% more compression, which maximizes your muscular power and endurance while minimizing fatigue. Assos' wisdom led them to that funky backward-seeming bib. It isn't backward, it's future-forward. It is the ABC-M, Assos Buckle Closure Mechanism. Knowing that their shorts will fit a wide range of women, the adjustable buckle can slide into any one of three loops stitched into the front of the short. This allows you to customize the fit of the short as a whole. And, unlike a regular bib-less short, the short is held in place primarily by the tension of the bib strap, which means you won't have an elasticized waistband putting pressure on your tummy as you ride -- this is the exact reason why the pros who race the Tour de France all choose bib shorts, not regular shorts. Comfort is paramount! The design of these bibs is an easy visual cue to indicate that Assos has totally re-engineered their shorts. Just about everything on these shorts are different. It's easy to notice the different-colored exterior grippers (one silver and one black) and the external tags in back -- both details are driven by comfort. But the green, Assos calls this color "clinique," panel in the middle of the bibs? While a striking color, it's a carbon fiber mesh material that is lighter than spandex, breathes better than spandex, and is substantially less prone to odor than spandex. The stretchy material in the rest of the short is also different than earlier Assos offerings. It is A430 on the outside panels, and A431 panels on the inside of the legs. The A430 spandex has greater venting than other varieties of spandex. And A431 is Assos-speak for compression spandex. Furthering the squeeze is the stitching. The flat-panel stitching results in less stretch. On the negative, it takes a bit more work to get these on. But that's the only negative. Once they're on, which will be for far more time than you spend pulling on a garment, the shorts stay in place, squeeze the muscles gently and fit even better when in riding positions. The biggest change, even with the bib, is actually the chamois. The clinique color is used here again to call attention to the change. The smooth clinique-colored top layer is light and breathable and transfers moisture to the outside of the garment. Under the cover, and stitched to the outside of the short, is the actual padding. While the two separate pads are right next to each other, they're not stitched to each other so they operate independently. The result is less heat and moisture buildup, less sliding on the saddle, and even greater comfort for those long miles in the saddle. One note to keep in mind: Assos designs all of their clothing with their AEPD (Assos Ergonomic Pattern Design) philosophy. When you put these shorts on, they will pull and bunch when you're standing straight up looking in the mirror. But they're not designed to be comfortable when you're standing in your bedroom -- rather, they're designed to "click" into place when you're on your bike. When you're on the saddle reaching for the handlebars, that's when you'll experience the beauty of Assos fit.


Assos T FI.13 S5 Bib Shorts

Price: 359.95
CL5209004


Regardless of whether you love or hate their fashionista print ad campaigns, you must give full credit to Assos for their role as pioneer in the bike industry. Before Assos' emergence in the late 1990's, the main qualifier to establish the quality of a bib short (made back then by companies like Pearl Izumi and Castelli) was the number of panels it had. It was as simple as simple could be: 4 panels = Weekend Warrior; 6 panels = Quality meets Value; 8 panels = Marvel of Engineering. Assos turned this formula on its head by championing cost-be-damned materials and complicated fabric patterning. They brought us unprecedented style; they brought us unprecedented comfort; they brought justification for unprecedented prices. No bib short in the Assos line was more emblematic of their cost-blind approach than their FI.13 S2 model, first introduced in 2000. The S2 was priced at $280 at a time when other companies feared breaking the $175 barrier. And despite the gap in cost between the S2 and everything else, it instantly became our best selling bib short -- a trend that stayed constant for 7 years. Why was it so wildly popular? Like any high-quality piece of clothing, it made the wearer look dazzling. But beyond that was its technical attributes: Its elastic interface chamois proved to be a delight for rides of any length; and the cut of panels made them embrace our bodies with perfectly light tension. The fit, in short, was flawless. Given our history with the S2, we were understandably attentive when Assos announced it would be discontinued for a new model, the F.I.13 S5. With the S5 Assos takes all of the signature qualities of the S2 and benchmarks them higher. The Executive Summary is this: In comparison to the S2, the S5 weighs nearly 20% less and has 20% less volume. According to Assos testing, the S5 puts nearly 25% less pressure on your genital area. The short panels and the chamois are made from fabric 35% more breathable than the S2, while offering nearly 20% more muscle compression. The S5 is available in 2 colors, Black and White. In both colors you'll note the turquoise-colored webbing between the bib straps (worry not, it's not visible once you put a jersey on!) Assos calls the color klinik, and in fact it's a carbon mesh that reduced static between your jersey and the bibs, allowing you jersey and bibs to move on your body independently of each other as you pedal. The side panels of the S5 are made from Assos' new A430 fabric. It offers superior venting in comparison to the A360 used on the S2. Amazingly, though, A430 provides better muscle compression than A360. And it wicks sweat substantially faster. Do the fingertip test when you pull the S5's out of the box -- the sheerness of the A430 tells the story. A fantastic detail here, though, is that Assos uses a different fabric on the inner thighs, A431. Why A431? It has less stretch than A430, keeping the chamois in a more stable position in your crotch. And it's a more durable fabric, too, in order to minimize sweat-induced fabric degradation and potential piling of the inner thigh fabric cause by rubbing against your saddle. The front panel of the S5 is made from neither A430 nor A431. Rather, it's a high elastic fabric designed for a simple purpose: Reduction of pressure on your genitals You'll spend a lot less time mid-ride reaching down into your shorts to readjust yourself. Gone are the days of your shorts contorting your goods in unpleasant ways. The fabrics of the S5 are new, but rest assured that it's built in Assos' long-perfected AEPD design. Yes, the S5 will pull in strange ways when you're standing in front of the mirror. But when you're bent over on the bike in a riding position, they feel glorious. The key element of any bib short is its chamois. And the S5 holds nothing back here. The new FI.13 chamois is actually two separate pads with two separate stitchings. The layer next to your skin is softer than what you get on the S2. While it lacks in none of the elasticity of the original FI.13 chamois, it somehow feels less rubbery than the original. It's softer and it compresses less, which means when it stretches it's not under so much tension.

Assos T FI.Mille S5 Bib Shorts

Price: 259.95
CL5209003


The Assos FI.Mille A.360 bib short was a mainstay of the Assos apparel line for nearly a decade. It was always known as their "Long Distance Short", and in the revamped version here known as the FI Mille S5, this essence remains the same. Why "Long Distance"? It's for two key reasons: First off, the FI.Mille S5 provides more stretch and less compression than the FI.13 S5. This is due to both the fabric selection, the cutting lines of the fabric, and the number of total panels of fabric. While the added stretch and malleability of the fabric provides less muscle compression than the S5, it moves with a silken closeness to your body as you pedal. If you've ever ridden for 6 hours at a clip, you know little things matter a whole lot, and this is one of those comfort details you'll appreciate. The other "Long Distance" characteristic of the FI.Mille S5 is its unique chamois. Like the FI.13 S5, the chamois is curved to perfectly fit your body, and it has a cut at the front of the chamois to reduce genital pressure. In addition it has the same softness and heat-ventilation dimples of the FI.13 chamois. What gives the FI.Mille S5 chamois its "Long Distance" designation is the fact that it's a bit bigger in surface area than the FI.13; it stretches less than the FI.13; and it has a stabilizer built into the chamois, causing it to move less during your pedal stroke. The FI.Mille S5 makes strategic use of A430 fabric to wick sweat and elastic fabric to reduce genital pressure. And it's built with the same AEPD cut as the FI.13 S5 to feel like it "clicks" in place on your body when you're reaching for the bars. The added stretch of the FI.Mille gives it a perceptible level of comfort. Bigger riders -- and non super-skinny riders -- will appreciate how the FI.Mille S5 fabric stretches laterally on your body with greater ease than the FI.13 S5. If the FI.13 S5 feels right length-wise, but too tight width-wise, you'll experience something totally different with the FI.Mille S5.


Assos T FI.Uno S5 Bib Shorts

Price: 199.95
CL5209001


Assos refers to their FI.Uno S5 bib short as their "All-around racing and training short". Assos takes the hallmarks of the FI.13 S5 and re-engineers them in a way that provides a balance between technical advancement and cost control. It's built entirely of Assos' new A430 fabric, giving you both excellent muscle compression and sweat evaporation. The cutting lines here are less sophisticated as the FI.13 S5, but you nevertheless get superb performance from the fact that the FI.Uno S5 is built in an AEPD design for on-the-bike comfort and has 6 panels to promote muscle support. The FI.Uno S5 lacks in the curved chamois design of its higher-priced counterparts, but the bib straps pull the chamois into place. And the chamois has the same next-to-skin softness of FI.13 and the FI.Mille, and it also shares the heat-ventilation dimples on the chamois. The overlocked seams provide cost savings for the FI.Uno, and they have the additional upside of providing excellent elasticity. So you'll save money and be more comfortable. The welded leg grippers are the same story. They flawlessly hold the legs of the short in place, but they do so at a lower cost. If you're looking to experience the handsome fashion and the performance benefits of Assos, but your preference is to do so at a reasonable cost, the FI.Uno S5 is tailor made for you. Yes, it's the least expensive Assos bib. But if it didn't make fashion sense or technical sense, Assos wouldn't make it. From a bang-for-the-buck perspective, they'll tell you it's the best bib short.
