An OLYMPIC swim trunk with straps
- I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- True to size
- Size Bought
- 5` 8"
Pad- great. Amazing. That is the only good thing. However, could not wear it, nor try TO. The ASSOS logo? HARD fused material, so you have x2 ASSOS HARD LOGOS left or right. SO, perhaps the NON SUMMER non logo version better? Then the trunk ergonoMY- atrocious. Google Michael Phelps pics- it is about as high- maybe 2 " higher that his swimwear, undercutting belly and waist line below. So when they say WAIST room in their sizing it makes no sense as it gets nowhere the waist. 99% of top rate bib shorts wrap and compress near or above the belly button area, all around. Makes more aero, etc. These sit inches below, like a swim trunk with straps, and worse, the ASSOS pics are misleading as those are far taller trunks! So lean forward and simulate aero... Well, so your belly tissue is undercut or scraped by the low sitting short elastic- imagine the non bib shorts rolling under and why we ALL go to bib shorts? Now you get both, a short short belly cut with straps.. Every single other short worn past 10 years wraps above and around... No friction. So tight strap pushing against belly. Either case, did not pass the inhouse post delivery test. As for actual

I wonder whether the lower cut allows one to go to the boys room without taking off the jersey and straps?

A more breathable RS
- I've used it several times
- True to size
- Size Bought
- 6` 0"
- 175 lbs
I own several Assos bibs, ranging from Evo to RSR. That said, the RSR bibs are still my top-pick for any bib of any brand. Simply put: nothing is wrong with them until someone makes something better. However, I still reach for these RS werksteams over the RSR bibs on the extra hot rides and see myself using these during the hot summer days. They are just a little more breathable than the RSR bibs which I love as it gives me another option to consider before hopping on the bike. These are just a little less silky feeling than the RS or RSR bibs as there's a different material to allow for more airflow. Loving these so far and so glad I pulled the trigger before summer kicks in full gear. Also, as a little note from someone who has gotten thousands of miles out of their Assos bibs: follow the care instructions and stop putting them in the dryer. I always hang them up to dry and will use a very gentle setting on the washing machine (these are supposed to be hand-wash only, so I take this risk). Drying your bibs will degrade the material super quick so do not do it!
