Designed for optimal comfort in Fall riding, the T.tiburu_s7 Bib Shorts from Assos feature their brand new 610.RX fabric, offering the thermal weight of a tight with the versatility of a short. Featuring their brand new 610.RX fabric, Assos set out to create a warm, insulating bib tight for those of us that don't let the winter weather slow us down. A soft fleece lining on the internal face retains body heat while improving overall comfort, while the exterior features the Assos Water-Repellent technology, protecting against road-spray, drizzle, or even light rain.
Fear not, these aren't just a new, heavier bib short from Assos, they've also incorporated two brand new features specifically developed for cold-weather comfort. Their brand new BlasenSchutz panel provides a wind-blocking layer between the crotch and the abdomen. Assos claims this reduces the need to urinate while riding, and while we can neither confirm or deny that, we can definitely vouch for the added core protection that it offers. Additionally, they developed the Integrated front Pad Protection, allowing them to extend the chamois to the end of the front panel, rather than sew it to the body of the short. This removes the seams for increased comfort, decreased friction, and a better fit in arguably the most sensitive area of the short.
Inside, Assos used the same insert as their T.equipe_s7 shorts. Boasting 8mm of memory foam padding, this insert fills the gaps between your body and the saddle, incorporating a perforated waffle layer for optimal ventilation. With their goldenGate technology, the central sides of the chamois aren't stitched to the shorts' body, allowing the chamois to move with you through your pedal stroke.
Assos designs their clothing to fit the changing seasons, dictated by their Assos Layer System (or ALS), dividing the year into seven distinct cycling seasons. The T.tiburu_s7 falls in their median "Fall" ClimaRange, roughly corresponding to 50 – 59º Fahrenheit. To extend this short deeper into the Winter season, add in some leg warmers and these become tights. For more information, refer to Assos' helpful Information Center.

Awesome bibs and warm
These Bibs are great. The fleece like liner in the bibs keep my legs and crotch warm between 40-50 degree weather. I also pair these with the S7 leg warmers for a full legged kit.
