Does anyone know why Assos doesn't make navy blue bibs? I know they have the caleum blue Mille GT bibs and own them. Honestly not impressed with the quality or color.

I have bought SV Emergency FF1 vest in Bikezaar, great, great product. Although has 4 years very useful and perfect design, seams. I read months ago to Kjetil and RTW that they had and I liked.

Yes, It's a great piece of kit, the boob roll. My avatar (exiting the hairpin on top of Col du Galibier, hungry for caesar salad at the Lautaret):

Hi

Is anyone using the new GT Bib Shorts?

I get is allegedly the most comfortable of the brand but that was the case of the Cento previously but for me it had a terrible issue I would like to know if it has been addressed or not

The Cento despite being a top top quality piece had soooo loose material at waist level. I'm fit but not particularly thin and I ended up returning it. I'm S and even tried XS only to find, although less noticeably, the same feeling. Sizing down had even more downsides at shoulders and inner leg level.

So, long story short, is the new model more elastic and/or tight in such condition?


Thanks
Jorge

Maybe a pair of Equipe RS/R is better for you.

Yes, I own the RS in red and I find it more comfortable than the Mille but obviously the padding and overall fit of the bib is cheaper than the Cento.

Do we know if a new "blue padded" version of the RS is coming up? I mean the brand new colored bibs

There’s the new GTO of course, the spiritual heir to the Cento.

I always disliked the Kuku Penthouse and avoided those after having to more or less retire the Campionissimo because if it. The RSR is a dream.

But I just can't get along with their chamois since S7, get scuffing all the time. This summer I bought non Assos bibs for the furst time - Q36.5. And it was not the last time, ate least for the summer bibs I can say I love them.
I’m trying to decide between them and the Rapha Pro Team Winter bibs. My main problem with Assos is how short they are (need XS but I have long legs, 1.75m) . How longer than usual are these?
To me they seem a bit longer than summer RS S9 version but I haven't measured them. Whether they'd fit you you will only know when trying them on.
Spring Fall Equipe RS S9 bib shorts have longer legs than regular RS S9. At least on my legs.

And in spring fall glove you notice the padding? I do not like padded gloves
I do not notice padding. I like those gloves a lot. Unlike Assos liner gloves which i find quite useless.

Yes spring fall glove is barely padded which i like. And yes they are not particulary warm. In line with rest of assos spring/fall clothing in my opinion.

Even their winter glove is really a spring fall glove. Assos was never really good with gloves in terms of warmth.

Why useless the liner gloves? I saw another user that he liked, he used in his own, I thought to use in that way for 5-10°C.

How is the RSR an upgrade from the RS?
