After a bit of research I decided to buck the Assos trend here in South Africa and try something different. If you look about these shorts have toped the buyers polls in most magazines where they've featured and now owning a pair I can see why.
Love the material and support. No leg grippers, just very well engineered panels, great 'floating' chamois, decent bibs and the extra features make for a very good short that will stay with you all day.
Couple of 100km+ rides so far, really comfy and cool. Yup they are colourful but they do look good on and match my blue / white Giant TCR - tho that wasn't what made me buy them. ;)
ne of the best things about thee shorts is the 2 part chamois. Was a little sus' about it at first but works well and doesn't give you that 'nappy' feel that you can get from the bulk of the Assos kind.
I'm 5'9" with a 33 / 34 waist and the Large is a nice compressed fit.
Other shorts: Assos, Descente & Giordana.
