T.equipe_s7 Bib Shorts

Developed in conjunction with Assos' Werksmannschaft factory team riders over the past six years, the all-new T.equipe_s7 Bib Shorts stand as a testament to the Swiss brand's dedication to race-tuned perfection. So, to all who've ridden in the legendary FI.13, these build from their proven platform. There are four new "mission-specific" models of bib shorts within Assos' technical-feature-laden _s7 lineup, with the T.equipe _s7 aligning itself as the low-volume race-fit option. Six patents and nine innovations later, a new level of technological firepower has officially been unleashed on the world of cycling apparel design.

The main Assos-specific textile that makes up the paneling of the T.equipe_s7 bib shorts is called Type.439. This fabric is used for the five low-volume panels of the T.equipe_s7, as it's incredibly comfortable and supportive. The 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. Prototypes tested by Assos' very own Werksmannschaft (the Assos factory team) riders proved to Assos engineers that this exclusive textile provided the ideal blend of compressive support and low weight. And like the other fabrics composing the rest of the _s7 bib shorts line, Type.439 was finished with an iceColor application, which is similar to Coldblack cooling technology in that it effectively reduces surface temperature in dark fabrics. A cool, dry, and fresh feeling is the result, which complements your body's fully supported lower half.

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.equipe'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.equipe_s7 comes in a claimed weight of 168g, which is the second 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.

Very Impressed

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

I purchased the Equipe S7 and the Cento S7 and I am very impressed with both. As the Cento is a more race fit - more snug, with a slight heartier feel and very streamline fit to the body, the Equipe is slightly more relaxed and extremely comfortable for long days - given i can fit into a large but ride in mediums by choice because I prefer a snug fit. Another killer feature in all Assos is the fabric of the bib straps. All seamless and lay quite well, proving to be comfortable for hours on end. I feel these will last quite some time and I am very please with how they fit and feel.

Great bib

  • Fit: True to size

I used to wear Giordana Forma Red that are good too but now today with a lot of kilometers I think Assos are really superior

Second only to Cento

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Everything Assos makes is really good, but they absolutely kill bibs. Let me give you my impressions in a single sentence; These bibs were extremely well thought out, impeccably produced, and are, without a doubt, the most comfortable bibs I've ever had the pleasure to slide on.

While being race-cut, they maintain a gentle touch. The compression is mild, but it's definitely there. Personally, I think it's the perfect balance. Assos also nailed the chamois. It features the "GoldenGate" detached middle section that allows the chamois to adhere to your body perfect, which nearly eliminates saddle-sore-causing friction. The materials are spot on as well. The straps are velvety, but substantial. Assos simply made an all-around premium bib, and I'd argue that they maintained impressive value in doing so. These bibs are only $20 more than Castelli Free Aeros, and $30 less than Giordana FR-C Pro.

Honestly, the only bib that I feel is better is the $300 T.Cento, and that's only because it features the Kukupenthouse genital cutout (trust me, it's awesome.)

Sizing is pretty consistent with the rest of Assos's line. They run slightly smaller than Pearl and Giordana, but larger than Castelli. I like a large Castelli bib and I found myself at home in a medium in the Equipes. Feel free to get in touch with me directly at jdraper@backcountry.com if you want to discuss these in depth!

I have two pair of these from 2015 (each pair has over 200 rides).
Has anything changed on these since 2015?

Very good short, not perfect

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The chamois is quite good. I have pain in my aging stits bones on rides longer than 50 or so mi, especially on rides I don't stand much, like flat rides. These shorts basically do as well as any I've tried, but they're still not perfect. I think I would make the following improvements:

- The chamois is a bit too wide in the front, so it presses a bit on my inner thighs.

- In the front, the shorts are basically normal shorts with suspender straps built in. For my build, I would rather have the typical bib style where the straps taper from the bottom. I find the top of the shorts part are more comfortable with the support normal bibs offer.

Otherwise, pretty good all around.

What's the inseam length on these bibs? I wear a Large.

Tried the Swiss side

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium

I've been buying Castelli products faithfully for over 5 years now. Having bit the bullet back then and ditched the Pearl Izumi's and Specialized brands - which I never felt offered the greatest comfort or feel for my 5' 9" climber's frame - I thought Castelli was like putting on a glove. Well some of those first shorts (Rosso Corsa Level Body Paint bib shorts) are finally showing signs of wear after a couple thousand miles (pretty darn good bang for the buck!). So I thought now would be a good time to invest in another pair of high end shorts but see what other brands have to offer that I might be missing. So I gave these Assos shorts a shot. As was mentioned in another users review the packaging is a lot over the top. Not big on wasting packaging that's just going straight back into recycling.

I ordered the medium size and it seemed to fit just fine except for the leg cuffs, which were doing some weird loose wavy/floppy thing. I've already initiated my return - Competitive cyclist and Backcountry are great to work with! - but was rather surprised at the looseness of the elastic. I certainly don't have big sprinter's thigh's but everything else seemed to fit fine. Perhaps ordering a size down would have fixed the problem but with the Medium straps fitting just fine, I didn't want to give the small's a try and feel as though I had someone pulling on my reigns. In the Castelli mediums everything fits nice and snug and supportive. I think I'm sticking with my brand knowing their cut fits me just fine.

Been hearing about Assos for a while and they really lived up to my expectations! Great fit, great shamios. No complaints at all

Assos Tequip s7

  • Fit: True to size

Most comfortable shorts I have found. I use them under tights without chamois for winter. Threw all my others away when I bought these.Definitely worth the money.

Great bibs

Thirty years on the road and I have found none better than Assos. These are the most comfortable and well constructed bibs I've owned.
Great under all conditions. Perfect for long chafe-free rides.

Simply the best Bib Shorts ever !!

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Great fit and awesome comfort - allow for all day riding, with a 60 mile Break-In !!

Typical Assos bib which is a good thing

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these a little worried about the new semi-attached chamois. Thought Assos may have taken a step back. After 3 rides (all over 3 hours), these bibs live up to expectations of previous generation Assos bibs. I wouldn't say they are better, but at least equally as good. In my experience Assos bibs are the best, followed by Rapha and then the others. I wear a medium simply because I don't like bibs to be so tight on my thighs that I have seam marks a couple hours after the ride.

I recently heard that assos has updated their bib shorts range. can you confirm what has changed?

Assos T.equipe_S7 Bib Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

Most comfortable bib shorts I've ever owned. Just looking at them and thinking how comfortable they are makes me happy.

I have been disappointed with the fit of these in small (the leg bands immediately started to pucker and not hold, and the chamois is too loose against my butt & won't stay in place - it moves back while riding leaving my sit bones without cushioning). I am 5'5", 125lbs. & w/ a 29" waist. I'm thinking of trying the XS but Assos's size chart indicates that an XS is for a person even-tinier than me (i.e., <5'2" in height). My main concern is that the legs and shoulder straps will be too short (the legs are already barely long-enough on my short legs). Thoughts?

Hi, I'm 5'6" 155lbs. & w/30". It fits perfectly.

Hey Ira, I am 5'11 and wear an XS. Works great.

Assos t.Equip

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

Great bibs. Just bought second pair. I have previous version of Assos bibs S5. But S7 is better in my opinion.

Out of curiosity what is your waist size?

In case your interested I have a 29" waist (which is well within Assos sizing chart for a small). I own the small and find them a bit loose in a few areas (i.e., the leg bands immediately started to pucker and the chamois keeps moving back as I ride). I'm a bit leery of buying an XS since the small's leg length is already a bit short (even though I'm only 5'5") and the leg compression is already quite pronounced. Maybe Assos just doesn't fit my body type?

Over-engineered

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

Over the past ten years have ridden in many Assos bib shorts and all have had unmatched comfort and quality.
These shorts, on the other hand, have a chamois that is not connected for a long stretch between the inner thigh and perineum, resulting in
pinching and folding of the chamois material in the one area that you don't want that to happen. The result: one very sore bottom.
It's potentially a good idea, allowing the chamois to ride partially free from the short, but at least for me it was awful. Shorts are unrideable. Just strikes me as a way that Assos could distinguish their shorts from the competition to no particular purpose and the result is awful. Over-engineered in other words. Bring back the Uno!

Very Disappointed

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: large

I have been a longtime wearer of Assos bib shorts (I have owned 4 pairs of the Assos Uno bib shorts, which were discontinued). I have always found them to fit well, be comfortable and durable. I purchased 2 pairs of the T.Equipe bibs less than 1 year ago. One pair has already worn through and developed a hole, while the other pair is getting close to doing the same. I have NOT worn these T.Equipe bibs exclusively over the past year, but along with 3 other pairs of older bibs (4-7 years old), including several pairs of Assos Uno bibs and a pair of Specialized Rouboix bibs. I purchased the T.Equipe to replace 2 pairs of older Assos Uno shorts. While my much older shorts show some signs of wear, none have had any wear through issues. I am very disappointed with the durability of the Assos T.Equipe shorts and do not recommend them. Unfortunately, it looks like I'll be searching for a new manufacturer/model for my cycling shorts.
