The new domestique on Assos' block.

Believe it or not, it's been six years since Assos released its revered _s5 collection. For all who've ridden in them, these bib shorts have been touted as simply the best fitting and supportive on the market. Well, in true fanaticism that dominates the mindset in their Centro Studio, Assos' engineers took to improving what many called perfect. The new collection of bib shorts to emerge is aptly titled _s7. There are four new "mission-specific" variations of bib shorts within this technical-feature-laden lineup, with T.neoPro_s7 standing as the Swiss-based brand's dependable, do-everything, daily workhorse model.

The main Assos-specific textile that makes up the paneling of the T.neoPro_s7 bib shorts is called Type.429. This durable fabric is used for the low-volume panels of the T.neoPro_s7, as it's incredibly supportive, hard-wearing, and comfortable. The ripstop-like 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. Countless prototypes tested by Assos' very own Werksmannschaft (the Assos factory team) riders proved to Assos engineers that this exclusive textile provides the ideal blend of compressive support and low weight.

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.neoPro'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.neoPro_s7 comes in a claimed weight of 169g, which is one of the 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.

awesome chamois

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

I'd say the 2 best things are the chamois and the drying of these bibs. had for over a year and still holding up. lots of compliments.
would say however that b/c of losing weight through cycling I should warn that these hold there size really well - and if there is bunching there is chaffing so I encourage you to seek your size very carefully!

I bought 6 pairs

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are amazing. They fit great, the fabrics are awesome, and the price is insane. Buy some if you're tiny.

XL rider

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

I'm 6'3", 230 and I love these bibs. This is my 2nd pair of Assos bibs and they fit great and fit my torso great, unlike Castelli. I bought them on sale, I wish I could afford to buy more of them.

Defective batch?

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Size Bought: medium

I already have the assos neopro bibs in medium and they fit perfectly and I love them. I just got a new pair on special sale and they are quite different from the full price original pair. The leg grippers on the medium are a full 2 inches wider than on my original pair. They are much larger than the leg of the shorts. It looks like they sewed on the grippers for large bibs onto the mediums. They look really stupid and fit poorly. I am returning for refund. Too bad because the price was good... too good to be true. Poor quality control or defective batch on sale. I don't expect that from assos.

Not for me

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Usually wear Rapha or cheap team kits, grabbed these cause they were on sale and returned them. I thought they were too tight (and I'm a skinny dude) and the legs were too long. Also, for me the bottom of the legs were not tight enough (not a good look).

Very Long Legs

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

I'm 5'8" 145 pounds and wear a medium in every brand of bibs and small for jerseys. I have large quads and a normal/thin upper body. The leg gripper of these bibs hang loosely around my knees sort of like they are made in between knickers and typical length bibs.

I imagine these are perfect for someone with really long legs who has a hard time finding bibs that are long enough. If you are not in that category then these bibs may not fit you.

that's what she said

i ride 6 days (or more) a week, year round. saddle sores were becoming a major issue for me, impacting not only my ability to sit on a bike, but sit anywhere.
not having made any changes to my saddle or position, i attributed the problem to aging cycling shorts. i tried some less expensive shorts but i wasn't getting any relief. based on recommendations on this site, I purchased these bibs, the assos S5s from another site, and the pinarello pro tour bibs (made by giordano) also on CC. i also began handwashing my bibs in woolite after each ride. the saddle sores that had plagued me for months went away within 2 weeks rotating the 3 new bibs.
the S5s were cheaper and have a notably better build quality than the N7s. that's why i gave the N7s a mere four stars. with that said, i like the N7s better because the cut on the S5s is too short for me. The S5s are an easy inch shorter than the N7s and they ride up another inch when cycling. frankly, i feel like i am wearing booty shorts when i am wearing the S5s. I much prefer the length and grippers of the N7s. the chamois on both is outstanding.
the assos size charts are pretty useless. i'm 5'6", usually weigh around 140 pounds, and have a short torso, slight upper body, with most of my weight in my hips, thighs and glutes. although i'm pretty lean, most of my jeans have a 32 inch waist and 30 inch inseam.
the medium assos bibs fit me snuggly but not uncomfortably. the tan line on the N7s hits at the same spot as another pair of shorts i wear which the manufacturer cites as a 9.25 inch inseam (not a stat provided by assos). the girordanos also hit the at the same line. the S5s measure a lot closer when they are sitting on my kitchen counter, but when riding the tan line is 2 inches shorter. So I am extrapolating a bit here but S5s would be listed as an 8 inch inseam but ride like a 7.

Great Service, Happy Taint!

Being new to the complicated and overwhelming word of road bike gear, the customer service rep @Sean Zimmerman Wall did a really fantastic job and not only recommending these bibs, but also explaining what size would fit best for me. They fit true to size as he mentioned, and make my taint extremely happy on long rides. No nipple chaffe from the straps, and the fact that there are no internal tags make these things even better.

I hate them for being so good

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

First a rant: Assos is guilty of some of the most excessive packaging, including a useless brochure the size of a small paperback novel that comes in the elaborate box with these bibs. Without irony, the box proclaims how Assos hates waste. I know this is supposed to make me feel good about how much money I spent for these things, but it just makes me wonder how much this garbage is costing me. Take a hint from Patagonia, Assos - less is more.

Part of me wanted to hate these bibs so I would never want to spend this much again. No such luck, they are fantastic. The straps and upper body are my new benchmark - they just vanish. The straps are soft, but don't bunch. Super comfy. (I despise the Castelli Bodypaint straps, which are like rubberbands.) The fabric for the shorts is very plush, but has good compression. More importantly, it is very breathable - surprisingly so. I have done four 50-mile rides in hot and very humid conditions wearing these, and my rear has stayed comfy. My Castelli Endurance shorts, by comparison, gave me serious swamp-a$$ in those conditions. I love the chamois. As noted in other reviews, it can give a little wedgie feeling when standing (probably depending on your size), but it did not bother me a bit. I liked it just a tiny bit more than the Castelli Progetto. I do prefer the laser-cut style of leg gripper that Castelli and others use -- they are so soft and pliable. This thicker band is good, though on one ride it chafed the back of my knee a good amount.

I am always an XL in Castelli shorts, but a large in these fits perfect. The legs are long, as others noted. Also, I have pretty beefy thighs and I wish the leg openings on these were snugger. The long length and large opening means they can slide on your thigh a smidge.

Update: after about a thousand miles in these, they look good as new. And still plush.

Chamois not comfy due to Golden Gate

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

This was my first Assos shorts purchase. I really expected to love them, but sadly I don't. The pad is just not comfortable. The best pad is one that you just don't notice, and I really notice this one. When standing, the pad creates a 'V' in the center section since it is not stitched in. Yep - that means it feel like it goes 'up there' uncomfortably. And I really feel them at the juncture of my leg and groin.

I am 6'2 1/2" 195 lb and bought XL, so my height puts me at the top of the scale for this size. But I tried the XLG and they were really really loose, so I returned them for the XL. Maybe I need to cut the straps and sew in some additional elastic, if the problem is they are too short (the bib length / straps don't feel too short, but maybe thats the reason the shorts feel like they are going 'north' too much.)

So they just didn't work for me. I still have them, maybe once the chamois softens up they will feel better? Maybe i need to try chamois cream?

Rumors are true

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

These are the best shorts I have ever worn. I wore them for a 62 mile charity ride last week and they were awesome. Worth the $$$
The legs in the TIR are very long and I'm not sure I shouldn't have tried the XXL instead.

Awesome Bib

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

Went for a metric century on my first ride. These are without a doubt, the best bibs I've ever had (over PI, Castelli, Garneau). All day comfort on the seat and the wide straps work great.

Good Bib Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

Purchased these as my second pair of Assos bib shorts. The quality is fantastic, typical for Assos. The chamois is good, but still getting used to the floating design ... it just feels different than the previous bibs I'm used to. I much prefer the design of the back and straps on the previous series of Assos bib shorts. For me they are much more comfortable and the back more breathable. I'd also prefer if the legs were shorter, like the older shorts. These bibs are very good, but I think the previous series was better.

Tough To Be Brand Loyal

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I have a pair of Assos Uno shorts, size L which are simply the best. For the new line Assos changed the sizing, making all shorts a bit longer (as told to me by Competitive Cyclist customer service). As I'm at the short end of the new size L limit, the new neoPro shorts were too long. So I ordered a size M. The length was right but shorts were too tight. So, I have to lament the loss of the Uno model and find a new manufacturer to support.

issue with the seamless wing design

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

Just to start out--I am 6 ft 3 in and 170 lbs--"a long drink of water" as the old man calls it!
I have worn Assos bibs for greater than 6 years--have sworn by them.
However, I bought the T neoPro_ s7 and after a 50 mile ride developed my first ever blister on the inner upper thigh/perineal edge. About half way through the ride I felt the discomfort, and when I could make a pit stop and felt the painful area --I discovered that the free edge of the "wing" as I call the lateral edges of the chamois was bunched and the edge turned up and rubbing a raw area. I was able to push the edge down and flatten it out --but by then the damage had been done and a few more miles to get home-- didn't help.
Bottom line for me--the change in design with the free edges or as they call it GoldenGate--didn't work for me.
I'm not giving up on Assos but I will be seeking some old but more comfortable, s5's-- if they are still around.

I really love the S5 chamois like you - and I would suggest checking out their outlet. great deals on the older models.

Good Chamois

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Let me first say that I am 60 years old, 5 ft 9 in tall and weigh only 125 lbs. I'm a skinny geezer with very little padding on my rear. The most important thing I wanted in a new pair of shorts is a better chamois pad. I've been using a PI Attack bib short and PI Elite bib short. Lets ignore the PI Attack in this review. I'm comparing the PI Elite to the NeoPro. Both are really good training shorts designed to be snug but in no way racing tight. I've had two good rides in the NeoPros on hot humid days. My thoughts:

1. Chamois - The Chamois is bigger and better on NeoPro. They've used a denser foam that feels like a closed cell foam. It works. The PI Elite seems to have something almost as good in places but only in places. I feel like I can ride longer with the NeoPro and still be able to get on the bike the next day. I'd say for me that the PI Elite is good for about 90 min and the NeoPro is good for longer rides.

2. Weight - The NeoPro is a lighter weight material than the PI Elites. Not sure if this is a big deal but its a fact.

3. Fit - The PI Elite seems like a more complicated design with more panels. The NeoPro has less panels on purpose to eliminate seams. Seams never bothered me. The PI fits a hair snugger but remember I'm a skinny guy. I'm a size S in the PI Elite and an XS in the NeoPro. In this size the straps on the NeoPro are a little tight but ok. I wish they wouldn't size by height. The NeoPro is also cut lower in front. This allows you to breath more freely. Definitely noticeable. If you have a gut then it will probably hang out. I don't have one so this is a plus in the design for me. As for the discussion about the straps being attached more widely at the waist, I think this also helps you breath better. The straps stay in place just fine.

I generally ride about 25-30 miles at a time at about 18 mph to give you some notes for comparison. Generally I like the NeoPro but don't see any need to spend for any of the more expensive Assos bib shorts. Hope this helps

Are the Assos shorts worth the extra money? I'm keeping my NeoPros as the chamois is just too good and I like the lower cut for better breathing. Not sure? Here's where dealing with Competitive Cyclist is a plus. They allow you to buy stuff, try it out (yes that means you can go for a ride in the shorts), and return it if they don't work for you. I doubt any of the local shops carry Assos or allow me to do this.

Update May 2016
Just participated in a metric century Tour de Cure ride. The chamois in these shorts made the difference. After riding almost 4 hours, I felt fine. I doubt I could say that if I had worn my PI Elites (which I still like and use most days but for shorter rides). The minute I get on the bike it's clear that these have a denser pad which I need for long rides.

"Entry Level" for Assos >>> other brands

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The chamois really makes the shorts. These are "entry level" for Assos (5 stars for the entry-level category). They market them as lunchtime quickies. There are certain things they do that make them more economical. For example, the legs are basically lycra tubes (continuous material, few or no panels). The legs also run long, close to the knee, which is the one thing I would change. BUT, with the chamois, they are still more comfortable than any other brand I own at any level. The new extra-wide straps are extra comfortable since they cover more surface area and don't bunch up like most bibs. The straps are also spaced wider so less likely to irritate the nipple area (I'm a dude and sorry, some short have this problem). The cutaway in the front makes for easy access at urinal pit stops, and also provides belly relief if you don't have washboard abs. But, the new chamois makes the short. It's free-floating in the middle, rather than stitched continuously, which I suppose allows it to move around. Whatever it is, it distributes pressure very, very evenly. I encountered no hot spots on my first evening (1.5 hour) ride. Looking forward to further testing.

UPDATE 4/15/2016: Having had these in constant rotation for several months now, I have actually developed a slight preference for these over the next model up T.Equipe. Can't place my finger on it but they seem more comfortable with fewer issues on longer rides. I've added some Assos bib-tights since I last reviewed these, but now that it's warm again I plan to add a second NeoPro to the gear.

A Solid Pair of Bibs

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm 5'10" and 206# and the XLs fit perfectly. I've taken these bibs on a couple of rides so far. First thing I noticed off the bike was the chamois a little on the large side but on the bike they disappeared and are the most comfortable pair of bibs that I own. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the golden arch (detatched center) but they are incredible. I've ridden with these on my CX bike and under baggies on my mountain bike and they worked well either way.
The only reason I didn't give them 5stars is that the back is on the warm side. I expected them to be a little more breathable but I can live with the pluses of the chamois.

Why Did I Wait So Long?

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my first Assos purchase, and they've become my most favorite pair of bib shorts after riding a few 100's and a 185 km ride in them. I'm not sure about other comments stating they "click", but they truly do disappear once you're in the riding position. Compression is nice (I prefer a bit more) and the chamois is just plain amazing. I like these so much, that I'm eying the higher T.Equipe soon as I can scrape a few more pennies together.

Personal Info: 5'-6", 165 lbs, Size M fits perfect!
