Cycling Weekly Verdict

With four shorts in the updated Assos range it might be hard to figure out which are best for you, but based on the Equipe we’d say you can’t go far wrong with any of them.

The Equipe has a racing fit so it’s tight but not restrictive, the added length of the leg is a welcome change and the bib upper is sleek, minimal and well contoured for on the bike.

Then there’s the pièce de résistance: the chamois that Assos is renowned for — it’s bloody brilliant.
