Ashmei Bib Short review

The Ashmei Bib Short claims to set a new performance benchmark and we do like its pad and compressive fit, but there are some bunching issues to be resolved

Cycling Weekly Verdict

Unlike what Ashmei would like you to believe, these aren't the best bib shorts on the market. They do have a superb chamois, but it's worth double checking the sizings before you buy.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    The pad

  • +

    Compression fit (won't be for everyone though)

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Bunching around groin so double check the sizings

Ashmei is a company claiming to set a new benchmark in performance clothing. It's a massive claim and one that comes with an equally large price tag, with the Ashmei Bib Short costing an eye-watering £235. It's an enormous amount of money, but it's in line with Assos and a little cheaper than some of Rapha's offerings.

Of course, the difference is that both Assos and Rapha have multiple shorts available whereas the Bib Short is Ashmei's one and only.
