ASSOS have a well-deserved reputation for producing some of the finest cycling apparel on the planet. You pay a little extra – the company’s founder Toni Maier Moussa boasts that the first ASSOS shorts were more than twice the price of anything else on the market – but that money is spent knowing the garment will last an age and work really well. Materials ASSOS use are gold standard, the finish is second-to-none and the design approaching perfect. 

Summary: All-in-all, the T.équipe_s7 is superb pair of shorts which look good and wear well. And if you fall off, the road better look out. 4.5/5 (subscription required)
