A race fit that feels comfortable
Cycling shorts are wearable technology, and in the case of the Assos T.Lady_s5 Shorts, they're patented technology. The T.Lady_s5 Shorts are constructed from lightweight materials that are ergonomically engineered to specifically fit a woman's body. Featuring two patents, an ergonomic six-panel race cut, and a high-tech chamois insert, the T.Lady_s5 Shorts are a perfect marriage between comfort and race-ready technology.
Assos developed the T.Lady Shorts to be the pinnacle of women's fit in cycling apparel. Conducting a study of female physiology, Assos determined that there were three touch-points of a women's bib short that needed drastic improvement: the straps, chamois, and leg grippers. In true Assos fashion, two of the improvements were revolutionary enough to gain patents. The first patent obtained is for the leg grippers. Rather than have the grippers follow the entire circumference of the leg, Assos developed a sewing construction that allows a half-circumference gripper without losing any grip. The new gripper runs from the two o'clock to seven o'clock position. This enhances comfort and accentuates your form in the shorts.
Another patented feature of the s5 Shorts is the Adjustable Bib Closure System. The ABC Closure System is a specifically engineered strap design, tailored for the female body. It features a Y-panel design that goes smoothly over the breast bone, instead of over your chest. Coupling ergonomic shape with the ABC Closure System, the s5 Shorts allow a fully customizable bib length with an overall fit rivaling Seville Row.
The s5 Shorts are constructed from the Assos custom textile, Type.434. Engineered exclusively for cycling, the Type.434 fabric has a permanent antibacterial treatment and a high-density knit. Using this compact macrodimension fiber, the custom fabric controls elasticity/return stretch which promotes soft tissue compression. With the s5, compression and comfort work in hand-in-hand by utilizing the AEPD ergonomic six-panel race cut design. The AEPD design is pre-shaped for the female body, using an anatomically correct contour for a total freedom of movement and efficient dissipation of lactic buildup.
The final s5 Shorts touch-point advancement is the chamois. The T.Lady_s5 uses the legendary Assos custom elastic interface insert, high-density memory foam s5 chamois. With years of field analysis, Assos have refined the Lady s5 insert to the point of perfection. The female specific Lady s5 insert is 35% more breathable, and ergonomically designed for the female anatomy. Overall, Assos' incorporation of proprietary technology has created a chamois that's painstakingly designed to provide the best in anatomical fit and comfort.
The Assos T.Lady_s5 Shorts are available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Black Volkanga and White Panther.

I ordered this bib in preparation of a big climb in California. It fits snug and compact and I feel it really supports the body. The length could be a bit more generous, I am 6'1 and it seemed to pull on my shoulders which will make it hard during a 12hour bike ride. so I might just keep this for shorter rides. The chamois is great, I normally wear to Pearl Izumi PRO line and think this is equal or better.
Hi.. I ordered a white panther previously and it wasn't all white as the picture. It was white and black in the back. If I order the XL, does it come in all white? I'd like to order this as soon as possible for a present so answer is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Great bibs! Terrible closure system!

My wife loves the fit of these bibs. But the closure system absolutely stinks. The hook is near impossible to get through the loop. And if pushed too firmly, the sharp tip of the hook goes right through the backing where the loop is. Once that happens, they never close properly again, and tend to pop open randomly. Disappointing design from a company known for quality!
We will be taking the 4 pairs my wife owns to a tailor to have a different closure system installed.
What's the inseam? Thanks!

I love these bibs. These are by far my favorite bibs. I wish I had never tried them because now they are the only things I want to wear and buy.
