Some of the items I haven't heard about yet...


Update: Looks like the catalog was taken down...
Here are some screenshots that I took as I thought this might happened :D

So it seems that they reintroduce their "old" logo "Assos" on the new bib shorts... like in the "good old days"! Like it!

My old arm warmers will look current again with the correct logo.

@flying: This is about the right time for the 2018 spring/summer clothing gets booked. Reps would be showing the items to buyers, etc.

@DNT: Thanks for the share!

I get very confused with Assos. It's all I ride in, but the sizing varies all over the place. I have a 7 year old top that's an XL, which is tighter than a current M...

I need to update some of my tops, e.g. an intermediate, this was one of the best tops ever. Thin arms, wind proof layer on the front. Worked for me in a huge temperature range. If I got hot you just unzipped it. Full zipped up you could descend really cold hills , great. But it no longer exists, I can't make any sense of their naming system at all, very confusing!!

All their current kit is described in such flowery language I can't tell what it does or what it's for. No LBS near where I live stocks any, so I feel like it's too much hard work....

Time to move on to another brand perhaps ???

I used to wear only Assos; I tried Rapha, Castelli Rosso Corsa but in terms of quality I came back to Assos. In terms of design, I prefer the Castelli Rosso Corsa.

The Intermediate is still The Intermediate.

North Wales - try Alf Jones.

Where would you like it to be stocked?

Yes, I noticed the Intermediate is still available after I posted. Not sure I really like the new colour scheme though.

I live in North West Wales, Bangor is my nearest big town. I have been to Alf Jones in Wrexham a few times, nice people, but too far away for me most of the time.

Ditto, with exception of Castelli Gabba, which has held up well for me

Yes same for me with the Gabbas that I have. They are good! (Assos doesn't have any equivalent). I will however try the sister brand Sportful this fall/ winter
