Assos T.neoPro_s7 Bib Short
The latest entry-level shorts from Assos are attractively priced and feature a regular, all-around fit. The very particular, minimal pattern design is the result of wind-tunnel testing conducted specifically for the aero chrono suit, engineered for the London Olympic Games 2012 and used by the Swiss Cycling Federation.
It's no longer a traditional bib construction made of spandex like the shorts, it's a Y-shaped system construction front/back which ensures the unit stays in a perfectly wrinkle free and contoured position at all times.
Major breakthrough, another Assos milestone invention: Before _s7, all cycling shorts inserts have been fastened (sewn or glued) to shorts all the way around. The "Golden Gate" interrupts the sewing in the area "between the legs", creating 3 dimensional freedom of movement right in the most sensitive area.
It's the Assos solution for the insert next-to-skin 3-layer fabric. First introduced on _s5 and now further perfected for _s7. Instead of using a monolithic linear foam as the middle layer, _s7 is equipped with a perforated foam. Reduction in weight and increase in breathability as a result.
