Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Recommend them
I have had a pair of these for 17 months over which time I covered about 7500Kms and I ride in hot humid conditions. In the end they became transparent above the back of the pad. Apart from this they are still in very good condition and are very comfortable. Assos could overcome this one problem very easily. I have now bought the next model up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Great piece of kit
I have bought products that were about 30-40% cheaper than these Assos equivalents and thought they were 'ok'. I was a bit cynical at first when I first heard of this brand and thought that I would just be paying for a name. However, a lot of the guys in the local club I joined swear by them and since I needed something for long runs (up to 100miles), I thought I'd give them a go. I was not disappointed at all.
Feel a little tight on the shoulders when standing up, but once you are in the riding position, they feel great. I believe this is intentional from a design point of view. A great purchase indeed.
A few minus points/observations: The wash bag is as useful as a chocolate teapot - the shorts always come out in the wash. Not a problem as I wash the shorts separately (no fabric conditioner). The packaging is extravagant - simplify it, make a great product a little cheaper and save a few trees while you are at it Assos.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous La badana muy comoda y confortable,pero la lycra para el precio que tiene,se estropea rápido cuando lleva varios lavados se nota el desgaste,en 6 meses de uso y ya se notaba el desgaste.me decepciono,bastante,no se si con los de gama superior ocurre lo mismo,muy caro para que dure tan poco en buenas condiciones.

You'll have to buy one pair otherwise you will always be wondering what all the fuss is about.
The main issue is sizing - obviously you must get this right.
I'm 5 ft 10 and weight 14 stone. A large fits well.
When in training for an Ironman I regularly put in 200+ mles a week for 6 weeks.
Without this kit I'm sure I'd be in tatters!!!
