Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

All I wear is Assos and for good reason, their cycling gear is simply amazing, and these bibtights is another reason why I love their gear. I just replaced my old Assos winter bibtights with these. I find these tights more comfortable with the wider straps, just as warm, but the main difference being the lower front, which makes it so much easier for nature breaks. I'm pretty much a small in everything Assos and these fit true to size in a small. Just rode in these today in 32 degree cloudy weather and didn't feel cold at all. Paired these with the winter baselayer and the Bonka Prof Black jacket. Never felt cold nor overheated during the ride. Highly recommend!

I'm definitely a little biased as I only wear Assos. I've been using their older bib tights (S5 pad) for early winter riding and been wanting to try these. As usual, not disappointed. I'm already riding with their S7 bibshorts so I find the S7 pad extremely comfortable. I also love the wider shoulder straps and happy they went back to the lower cut front, making rest stops much easier. Rode in these today for about 2.5 hours, 44 degrees at start and extremely windy, so windchill was closer to mid 30s. Never felt cold and never overheated. All in all, really glad I ordered these.

I recently purchased the GT Mille Winter Jacket here at CC (which I absolutely love), but needed a deeper winter jacket for riding here in NJ. Since I had the older version of the Bonka jacket, I decided to pick up the newer ProfBlack version. The fit is simply amazing when riding, so typical Assos. I'm very slender, 5-7, weigh approx 135 lbs and the size Small just clicked into place while riding. I only wear Assos and I'm a size Small in pretty much everything I have, so this is pretty true to size. I've used it twice now, and on a recent ride where the starting temp was around 34, all that was required was a winter skinfoil. I never felt cold during the 2 hour ride. I love the understated styling of this jacket over the older version. The improved zipper also makes it much easier to operate with thicker winter gloves. All in all, extremely happy with the jacket and thanks to Todd as usual for all the help.

I was looking for a replacement for my old Habu jacket. I'm a little biased in that I only wear Assos. This jacket was my 1st choice. The new NEOS material is a little stiffer than the material of my Habu, but it's still amazingly comfortable when on. I actually like the fit of this jacket better, and I love the fact that it has cuffs (unlike the Habu). I'm usually a small in EVERYTHING Assos but since CC only had this color available in the M, I went ahead and ordered it. Amazingly, the fit is spot on, nice and snug but not tight and restrictive. I'm 5-7, weigh about 134, very slim build. According to the size chart, I should be a small, but I found the M to fit great. I rode in it for the 1st time this morning. Temps were around 48-50 for the duration of the ride, with winds of 15-18 mph, so the real feel was more like low 40's. Ten minutes into the ride (with some hills of course), I was extremely comfortable (with the Fall skinfoil underneath) and never over-heated nor felt cold for the entire ride. The jacket kept me warm while allowing my body to breathe. This new material is amazing in the wind. All in all, really happy I purchased it. And love the understated design of the "BlueBadge" color with the blue zip.

I purchased these to replace a pair of SIDI wires. After a few rides, I actually feel these fit my foot better that the wires. It is a bulky shoe, but very comfortable. Sizing is consistent, 43.5 in both (I wear US 9.5 in every shoe and sneaker). The Techno push ratcheting system makes it easier to tighten and loosen, (but I still prefer the BOAs). The carbon sole is super stiff, great power transfer. Personal preference, but I'm not crazy about the dials directly in center, I prefer them on the side like the Wires. Yes, they're expensive, but these will last me a long time and more importantly, puts a smile on my face every time I put them on. Kudos to Bill Sherman for assisting me with this purchase.

From a long time, loyal and devoted Assos fan, these bib shorts don't fit me well. As with many, I'm a huge fan of their S5 bib shorts. I loved the leg grippers and the straps on those bib shorts. As many has griped about, I don't find that the leg grippers provide any compression. I'm a medium in virtually everything Assos, including ALL of my S5 bib shorts, knickers and tights. I first tried on the medium, which is the right size for me, but the leg grippers were outright loose. I ordered the small and although they provide better compression, the shorts were a bit short for my taste and the straps dug into my shoulders a bit. While riding, the leg grippers were riding up to mid thigh, so a little short for my taste, and again, provided very little compression as opposed to my S5 shorts. All in all, didn't work for me, but the bright spot is, I did find their S7 chamois to be quite comfortable.

I'll admit, I'm biased, as all of my cycling gear is Assos. I love my ij.Intermediate but wanted to give this jersey a try as I love the understated design. I've been wearing Assos for the last 7 years and their medium fits me great, however, I always size down with their Mille cut. This was no exception. The small fits amazing. It's really snug, can fit a thin baselayer underneath, but that's about it. I will be testing the jersey on my next ride but so far, really impressed with the simplicity of the design and construction. Usual Assos quality and fit. And a shout out to Bill S. for all the help he provided. Great customer service from CC as usual.

I loved my Intermediate EVO, but this jersey has become my favorite, go to jersey for spring/fall rides. The wind proof front is amazing, the sleeve length is spot on (the sleeves were too long on the EVO), and the fit is usual Assos (fit and snug, not tight). I wore this with an Assos spring baselayer this weekend with temps around 50, and was comfortable for the duration of the ride. I wear a medium in all my Assos (with the exception of the Mille cut) and this was no exception. I love the cuffs as well, not tight but not loose either. I just received the MilleIntermediate today so will give that a try and see how it compares to the ij.Intermediate.
