5-10, 160 lbs ordered medium and it fits snug but well. I like these straps better than other bibs (PI,Castelli, even), and really like the minimal seams. Chamois is comfortable on its own and even better with a bit of cream for longer rides.
Assos quality. They are super comfortable, and fit very well. They stretch where they should and pull you in where they should. The pad is a little bulky at first but after a few rides they break in beautifully. Assos are great for your assos. I am 5'7" about 147 lbs and wear a medium.
My first set of off-brand no-namer bibshorts from the online retailer that starts with an A are more comfortable than these. I don't get it. These are supposed to be some of the best bibshorts with the best padding and I can't get through a 20 mile ride without discomfort whereas with ANY other bibshort I have ranging in price from generic to at least 150 bucks, I can go 40-60 miles before I really start feeling it. It's almost as if the padding doesn't come forward enough and it is not dense enough for my 200 lbs weight. I tried a few times in the ride to adjust, but no joy. Tried my other bike with a totally different seat, no joy. Wish I could return these.
A friend recommended ASSOS so I tried out two Jerseys and the Mille GT Bibshorts. These are now my favorite shorts (and jerseys) as they fit incredible well, look great, and just feel good wearing on any ride. ASSOS is my new favorite label. ASSOS is EXPENSIVE relative to other brands so I will typically look for discounts to justify the purchase. Their designers know how to create excellent product.
I love these shorts. They are very comfortable and feel great. I have worn them on 100 miles rides and had no issues. They are expensive but certainly worth it
These are great bibs. I wore specialized SL bibs for many years before I decided to try these, and I wish I hadnï¿½t waited that long. Iï¿½ve been using three pair for three months and they could pass for new after many wearings and washings. And most importantly, they are very very comfortable!
Though $30 more than previous years Mille bibs, these are definitely better built. The X-Frame straps are cooler on warm rides, the chamois is a tad wider which helped me, the leg grippers are much better than the old school silicone bands, and lastly the junk cradle is a bit better. I have done several 4-6hr rides in these and really just forgot about them where in the past I would have to readjust the chamois to get the seams off my sit bone. I use these for endurance MTB and I have used Pearl Izumi, Giordana, Jakroo, Bioracer bibs as a comparison.
Iï¿½ve always heard Assos are the best and I didnï¿½t believe it until I got a pair. Super premium and Iï¿½d love to have 1-3 pair in my rotation but are they really that much better than the other big brands? Probably up to the user but I can definitively say these are the nicest bibs I own. Points of comparison: Le Col Pro Bibs, PI Pro bibs and a club kit with an Elastic Interface chamois.
Very comfortable for longer rides. Sizing is similar to Pearl, Rapha. These are my go to bibs for anything over 50 miles.
Some changes to the straps I was not sure of. After a few rides, don't notice a difference between these a few older pairs of S5 Mille. They make great stuff and the best sign is you don't think about the bibs when you are riding, you just ride. Would buy again, and these guys get things out quick and keep you informed.
I don't spend $200 on bibs, but my wife purchased them as a gift for me. The legs give a nice amount of compression and I love the suspenders. The bibs are very comfortable.
From day one I have never thought about them. Zero hot spots. I'm riding 6 days a week on a trainer or outside. Max trainer sessions of 4 hours. I do use shammy cream. Can't speak for the other models but these took a few weeks for my tummy to get used to. There was a little chaffing from the upper seam across the waistline. All good now though! Bought size medium. 5' 10'" 160#
