At £120 they may not seem like budget bib shorts, but with a range going up to £295, the Assos T.Neopro_S7 bib shorts are the cheapest shorts that the Swiss brand has to offer. Even these bargain basement Assos bib shorts are not bad – although you need to be careful with sizing, as the mediums came up quite generous on me. A tester with a more racing snake build found that the leg grippers were too loose around his thighs.
