Jellycrablegswrote a review of Assos T.neoPro_s7 Bib Shorts - Men's on May 12, 2015
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.
