The new domestique on Assos' block.

Believe it or not, it's been six years since Assos released its revered _s5 collection. For all who've ridden in them, these bib shorts have been touted as simply the best fitting and supportive on the market. Well, in true fanaticism that dominates the mindset in their Centro Studio, Assos' engineers took to improving what many called perfect. The new collection of bib shorts to emerge is aptly titled _s7. There are four new "mission-specific" variations of bib shorts within this technical-feature-laden lineup, with T.neoPro_s7 standing as the Swiss-based brand's dependable, do-everything, daily workhorse model.

The main Assos-specific textile that makes up the paneling of the T.neoPro_s7 bib shorts is called Type.429. This durable fabric is used for the low-volume panels of the T.neoPro_s7, as it's incredibly supportive, hard-wearing, and comfortable. The ripstop-like material provides exceptional breathability, and it rapidly transfers moisture to its quick-drying outer surface. Additionally, this smooth fabric provides a moderately compressive hold, which, in turn, supports the muscle groups of the legs. As a result, these muscles are partially shielded from the fatigue-inducing effects of muscle oscillation that are derivative of road vibration. Countless prototypes tested by Assos' very own Werksmannschaft (the Assos factory team) riders proved to Assos engineers that this exclusive textile provides the ideal blend of compressive support and low weight.

Assos engineered these bib shorts to provide a slightly asymmetrical compressive hold that stretches more around your body, rather than vertically. This tuned stretch works to firmly secure the shorts in place while down in the cycling position, feeling more dialed while sitting in the saddle than while standing upright. This feeling has long been known to Assos' devoted followers as the signature "click on" fit. This Advanced Ergonomic Pattern Design (AEPD) fit is ever-present with the _s7 line, and it's been further enhanced by its new Y7 bib strap design. While the _s5's straps were spot-on from a comfort perspective, this latest generation's straps have been moved outward in the front slightly for better support. For example, while positioned over the hoods or down in the drops, traditional bib straps generally create a gap away from the torso between the collarbone and upper hips. But by aligning the straps outward, more along the obliques, the straps hug the torso, mimicking the body's movements without any gap, regardless of on-the-bike positioning.

And now for the core of the T.neoPro's technological dominance: the chamois. First, as with all of the _s7 collection, it wears the new amethyst color. According to Assos, this purple hue was chosen to pay homage to the clothing of Roman emperors, English monarchs, and members of Japanese aristocracy, as the historically-significant color highlights what it calls the "most technically advanced cycling shorts on Earth."

As one of the top-end chamois within the _s7 line, it received the bulk of Assos' technical innovations to emerge from its extensive product testing. The engineers began with an 8mm-thick memoryFoam material. This was first introduced with the venerable _s2 FI.13, as its shock absorbing composition returns to its original position, "filling the gap," every time pedaling position is changed in the saddle through the shift of weight. The memoryFoam features multiple layers, with its superAir and waffle composition making up the first two. This perforated design works to increase breathability and to shed weight. Additionally, this dimpling, combined with the ultra-soft microfiber top sheet, effectively pulls moisture from within the layers below, which allows it to dry much quicker than the previous _s5 chamois. Once Assos got the chamois layup to their standards, the engineers began rethinking the way a traditional chamois is attached to the shorts. This led them to what they are calling the "goldenGate," which involves interrupting the stitching along both of the chamois' side panels, allowing a more "three-dimensional" freedom of movement in this sensitive, rotational area. Additionally, because the seams are eliminated, friction is minimized even further. But if that weren't enough, Assos went ahead and extended the chamois' thinly-padded sides over this short-to-chamois junction, making the transition against your skin as smooth as possible.

The Assos T.neoPro_s7 comes in a claimed weight of 169g, which is one of the lightest of the four new shorts in the _s7 collection. The leg panels were finished off with new low-volume, calibrated-stretch superFlat grippers to keep the cuffs securely in place, and small Assos logos accent the shorts throughout. They are available in seven sizes from X-Small to TIR and in the color Black Volkanga.

Awesome Bib

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

Went for a metric century on my first ride. These are without a doubt, the best bibs I've ever had (over PI, Castelli, Garneau). All day comfort on the seat and the wide straps work great.

Good Bib Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

Purchased these as my second pair of Assos bib shorts. The quality is fantastic, typical for Assos. The chamois is good, but still getting used to the floating design ... it just feels different than the previous bibs I'm used to. I much prefer the design of the back and straps on the previous series of Assos bib shorts. For me they are much more comfortable and the back more breathable. I'd also prefer if the legs were shorter, like the older shorts. These bibs are very good, but I think the previous series was better.

Tough To Be Brand Loyal

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I have a pair of Assos Uno shorts, size L which are simply the best. For the new line Assos changed the sizing, making all shorts a bit longer (as told to me by Competitive Cyclist customer service). As I'm at the short end of the new size L limit, the new neoPro shorts were too long. So I ordered a size M. The length was right but shorts were too tight. So, I have to lament the loss of the Uno model and find a new manufacturer to support.

issue with the seamless wing design

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: large

Just to start out--I am 6 ft 3 in and 170 lbs--"a long drink of water" as the old man calls it!
I have worn Assos bibs for greater than 6 years--have sworn by them.
However, I bought the T neoPro_ s7 and after a 50 mile ride developed my first ever blister on the inner upper thigh/perineal edge. About half way through the ride I felt the discomfort, and when I could make a pit stop and felt the painful area --I discovered that the free edge of the "wing" as I call the lateral edges of the chamois was bunched and the edge turned up and rubbing a raw area. I was able to push the edge down and flatten it out --but by then the damage had been done and a few more miles to get home-- didn't help.
Bottom line for me--the change in design with the free edges or as they call it GoldenGate--didn't work for me.
I'm not giving up on Assos but I will be seeking some old but more comfortable, s5's-- if they are still around.

I really love the S5 chamois like you - and I would suggest checking out their outlet. great deals on the older models.

Good Chamois

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Let me first say that I am 60 years old, 5 ft 9 in tall and weigh only 125 lbs. I'm a skinny geezer with very little padding on my rear. The most important thing I wanted in a new pair of shorts is a better chamois pad. I've been using a PI Attack bib short and PI Elite bib short. Lets ignore the PI Attack in this review. I'm comparing the PI Elite to the NeoPro. Both are really good training shorts designed to be snug but in no way racing tight. I've had two good rides in the NeoPros on hot humid days. My thoughts:

1. Chamois - The Chamois is bigger and better on NeoPro. They've used a denser foam that feels like a closed cell foam. It works. The PI Elite seems to have something almost as good in places but only in places. I feel like I can ride longer with the NeoPro and still be able to get on the bike the next day. I'd say for me that the PI Elite is good for about 90 min and the NeoPro is good for longer rides.

2. Weight - The NeoPro is a lighter weight material than the PI Elites. Not sure if this is a big deal but its a fact.

3. Fit - The PI Elite seems like a more complicated design with more panels. The NeoPro has less panels on purpose to eliminate seams. Seams never bothered me. The PI fits a hair snugger but remember I'm a skinny guy. I'm a size S in the PI Elite and an XS in the NeoPro. In this size the straps on the NeoPro are a little tight but ok. I wish they wouldn't size by height. The NeoPro is also cut lower in front. This allows you to breath more freely. Definitely noticeable. If you have a gut then it will probably hang out. I don't have one so this is a plus in the design for me. As for the discussion about the straps being attached more widely at the waist, I think this also helps you breath better. The straps stay in place just fine.

I generally ride about 25-30 miles at a time at about 18 mph to give you some notes for comparison. Generally I like the NeoPro but don't see any need to spend for any of the more expensive Assos bib shorts. Hope this helps

Are the Assos shorts worth the extra money? I'm keeping my NeoPros as the chamois is just too good and I like the lower cut for better breathing. Not sure? Here's where dealing with Competitive Cyclist is a plus. They allow you to buy stuff, try it out (yes that means you can go for a ride in the shorts), and return it if they don't work for you. I doubt any of the local shops carry Assos or allow me to do this.

Update May 2016
Just participated in a metric century Tour de Cure ride. The chamois in these shorts made the difference. After riding almost 4 hours, I felt fine. I doubt I could say that if I had worn my PI Elites (which I still like and use most days but for shorter rides). The minute I get on the bike it's clear that these have a denser pad which I need for long rides.

"Entry Level" for Assos >>> other brands

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The chamois really makes the shorts. These are "entry level" for Assos (5 stars for the entry-level category). They market them as lunchtime quickies. There are certain things they do that make them more economical. For example, the legs are basically lycra tubes (continuous material, few or no panels). The legs also run long, close to the knee, which is the one thing I would change. BUT, with the chamois, they are still more comfortable than any other brand I own at any level. The new extra-wide straps are extra comfortable since they cover more surface area and don't bunch up like most bibs. The straps are also spaced wider so less likely to irritate the nipple area (I'm a dude and sorry, some short have this problem). The cutaway in the front makes for easy access at urinal pit stops, and also provides belly relief if you don't have washboard abs. But, the new chamois makes the short. It's free-floating in the middle, rather than stitched continuously, which I suppose allows it to move around. Whatever it is, it distributes pressure very, very evenly. I encountered no hot spots on my first evening (1.5 hour) ride. Looking forward to further testing.

UPDATE 4/15/2016: Having had these in constant rotation for several months now, I have actually developed a slight preference for these over the next model up T.Equipe. Can't place my finger on it but they seem more comfortable with fewer issues on longer rides. I've added some Assos bib-tights since I last reviewed these, but now that it's warm again I plan to add a second NeoPro to the gear.

A Solid Pair of Bibs

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm 5'10" and 206# and the XLs fit perfectly. I've taken these bibs on a couple of rides so far. First thing I noticed off the bike was the chamois a little on the large side but on the bike they disappeared and are the most comfortable pair of bibs that I own. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the golden arch (detatched center) but they are incredible. I've ridden with these on my CX bike and under baggies on my mountain bike and they worked well either way.
The only reason I didn't give them 5stars is that the back is on the warm side. I expected them to be a little more breathable but I can live with the pluses of the chamois.

Why Did I Wait So Long?

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my first Assos purchase, and they've become my most favorite pair of bib shorts after riding a few 100's and a 185 km ride in them. I'm not sure about other comments stating they "click", but they truly do disappear once you're in the riding position. Compression is nice (I prefer a bit more) and the chamois is just plain amazing. I like these so much, that I'm eying the higher T.Equipe soon as I can scrape a few more pennies together.

Personal Info: 5'-6", 165 lbs, Size M fits perfect!

Just Awesome

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It's no secret that Assos is top dog when it comes to bibs. And while the T.NEOPRO_S7 isn't the highest end option from Assos, it's as every bit of top quality, high performance goodness of its more expensive counterparts.

At the price point, there is nothing that compares. The chamois is light on the skin with just the right amount of padding in all the right areas. The straps are shockingly comfortable and the silicone leg gripper keeps everything in place with ease. The material is noticeably more durable than fabrics from other brands, while still remaining exceptionally comfortable and breathable for a wide range of temperatures.

Sizing was spot on, on 5'10'' 160 lbs. and the medium's are a comfortable fit. Could likely fit the smalls for a tighter fit if needed, but the medium fits well.

I'm about an inch taller than you, same weight. Do you think the large would be too big for you or is the medium spot on.

Greatest shorts ever?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had the pleasure of trying many many bib shorts and I've always felt like they've lacked something. Assos lives up to their name of being the best in the business. True that this pair lacks some of the features of the nicer bibs, however at this price; they can't be beat. The fit is snug but not overwhelmingly tight like Castelli, Capo, or some Giordana. The chamois also has a tendency to creep backwards, but the garment is cut so as you won't notice when you are riding or even assume a riding position. Love these bibs and love the chamois.

This is where you spend your money

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I will admit I initially tried the S7 from the massive hype and dozens of reviews from the cycling world. I have worn bibs from several high end brands and in the $200+ range. First of all, the material is unbelievable. It does have compression, but because it has almost no seams, there are no pinch points. The leg bands and straps are nothing short of perfect. They have a perfect blend of stretch and tension. I have one pair with approximately 2500mi and dozens upon dozens of washes. The durability is far beyond what ASSOS will even promise. Compared to my newest pair, the original barely shows any wear beyond the very slightest fade of color in the chamois. And now to the star of the show, the chamois. It is perfect. I know it's subjective, but I have ridden excellent chamois, other cy-tech chamois, etc., and this is perfect. One of the best features is the "golden gate" where the chamois stitching actually disconnects at the top inner part of the thigh (basically the sit bone area) and allows the chamois to move organically with your body. And added bonus, the stitching never frays or runs. It also comes up high in front for a bit of modesty if you're into that. The most striking thing to me is that the neo pros are the ENTRY short for the S7 line. I have bought MAYBE a dozen things full retail in my life, and three of those things were S7 bibs. I will buy these again, and again, and I'll probably buy a stock pile of the, if ASSOS ever discontinues them.

The Good, Bad and Ugly

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love the chamois, I love the material, I love the compression. I am on the larger size compared to most cyclists. I ordered the XLG even though I am only 6 feet. I could have gotten by with XL I think. I was worried about the lower cut as I have a beer gut but these work for me. When I put these on the back is very, very noticeable. Once I am on my bike it is less noticeable. I live in the South where it is humid and hot, the back is not that bad when riding but when you stop, even for a few minutes, it becomes uncomfortable. My suggestion, don't stop. At the end of the day I doubt I would spend the money to buy another pair. My PI bibs are just as, if not more comfortable than these and at roughly $50 less.

Though I don't yet own a Neopro I've had several Assos bibs over the years. You probably should have gotten the smaller size. Initially they feel snug but as you start riding the fabric expands and feels like a second skin. My second bib was a size larger and experienced the same as what you say. Returned it and went back to my regular size, L (I'm 5' 11" and weigh 190)

Great bibs shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Initial impressions out of the box and trying them on were very good. Rode a couple of long rides with them and they were really comfortable. Now i'm eyeing the model above this one. You really get what you pay for especially when it comes to bib shorts.

bad straps

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

chamois is great. workmanship great. pricetag high but not outrageous like their other models. straps in the front were good, but the breathability and comfort of the back part of the straps is terrible. for all that supposed research that goes into these you think they would have used something more comfortable and breathable.

bad straps

I agree the straps are not comfortable, they constantly remind you that they are there. S5 series where more comfortable IMHO.

If Assos is reading, I'm also waiting/hoping that they bring back the strap design from previous generations. I really love my Assos bibs purchased in 2012, but I'm going a different route for the time being :-(

Normal Person-cyclist

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I am a normal person, meaning I do not weigh my wheaties before I eat in the morning, nor do I shave the left leg but not he right because I am racing crit this week (hint, I do not race). But here is my short but sweet review.

6' (the doc says I am 5'11 3/4....but who cares what he says)


size XL seems to be the right bet in this brand. Fits great, a little tug even while in the "cycling" position, but great.

So far, one ride in I love these, and its true what they say, you get what you pay for. Man they are amazing. They work like a charm, the bit about the chamois being not totally sewed in works. It actually works. So far so good, I would buy 10 more of these if I had the money.

Great shorts!

    Bought them at the beginning of April and have already put 1,000 miles in them. Chamois is very comfortable; avg ride 30 miles with a long ride of 70. The wider spread of the shoulder straps is very comfortable. Well worth the money and without a doubt will buy another pair.

    Too bad

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    The finish and quality were great. Unfortunately the chamois didn't hit me right. The point at which my hips hit the saddle were right on the seam of the chamois which pretty much means they are a no go for me. Maybe they did not fit because I am not Swiss.

    Already a favorite

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    They're expensive, I know…

    I bought these a couple of days ago and they're already becoming one of my favorite pair of bibs. The fabric definitely has a slightly compressive hold that is extremely comfortable, the chamois is incredibly comfortable without feeling like you're wearing a diaper, and the bib straps are solidly made without feeling bulky.

    I haven't yet put these through the longer miles but so far, I'm incredibly stoked on these! Well worth the money.
