Mille GT Bib Short
Based on the T.milleshorts_s7 that has so long been a favorite of riders and racers, the Mille GT Bib brings us a redesigned insert and graphics in the same quality fit we love from Assos. Like its predecessor, the Mille GT is the workhorse short from Assos, built for riding, training, and racing.
The Mille GT are built with Assos' Type.429 Lycra blend. This durable fabric is incredibly supportive, hard-wearing, soft on the skin, and lightweight enough to be appropriate throughout summer. It provides exceptional breathability, and rapidly transfers moisture to its quick-drying outer surface. While that level of moisture management is general across most well-made cycling shorts, the feel of the material identifies the Mille GT as Assos quality by touch alone. This exclusive textile provides the ideal blend of compressive support and low weight for cyclists who may dabble in racing but are primarily into cycling for the sheer love of the sport.
Assos again crafts the Mille bibs with their Y7 Frame Carrier design, which places the front of the straps further toward the obliques rather than the center of the torso. This placement provides both better support and more clearance to fully expand your diaphragm while riding. The strap design also keeps them closer to the torso, rather than creating a gap, so that they better mimic the body’s movements. The waist and leg grippers of the Mille GT Bibs ensure a smooth transition from body to fabric with minimalist grip and pressure
Those already converted to Assos shorts’ comfort will notice a new colorway to their proven chamois construction. The change in color, from the amethyst purple to this basalt black, is an easy way to identify the latest insert. The Mille S7 EVO features the same 8mm thick memory foam with a 3D waffle upper, which increases airflow. The all-new kraterCooler system furthers ventilation through the short, with small perforations in the front of the insert to draw air through the foam. Like the previous S7 insert, the Mille S7 EVO also has Assos’ patented goldenGate construction, which interrupts the stitching along both of the chamois' side panels, allowing a greater freedom of movement in this sensitive, rotational area. To reduce friction even further, Assos extends the chamois' thinly-padded sides over this short-to-chamois junction, making the transition against your skin as smooth as possible.
