At first I did not these shorts. Buy the third ride they became my go to shorts.
I have several pair of PI Pro but I prefer the Assos. Much more comfortable yet plenty of leg firmness for hills or longer rides. Give them a try. They are worth the price.
This is the first Assos shorts that I have tried and found that they are very comfortable. They have a nice padding and I can ride for hours without any discomfort. The chamois is not tapered at the edges and I was worried that it was going to bunch up in the groin area, but when you are riding, I don't notice any overlapping or discomfort. I used to use Castelli shorts and liked their padding, but over the years their brand seems to get tighter and tighter. I am definitely switching over to Assos, and just purchased a Mille bib short.
The most comfy for long rides though rarely I experienced a little chafing from the edge of the chamois which resolved with a small adjustment. The hems so far are tight which is important when worn with leg warmers so these donï¿½t slip down.
