Not only are they the lightest shorts in our range, these sublime garments are packed with the finest comfort features.

It starts when you begin putting them on. Be gentle! Pull your T.campionissimo shorts up section by section. Go slowly. You may feel like they will never fit you, but keep going. Place them properly on your legs and buttocks. Now bend over and pull the Y frame carrier (the bibs) over your shoulders. Now stand up. Close your eyes and feel them. Feel how they grab your body without hurting you. Next, get on the bike. It will feel like there's an invisible hand gently pushing you forward. This is the special feeling of T.campionissimo, featuring the specially developed ASSOS-specific textile, Type A.444 ergoKompressor - it's phenomenal!

Superb quality as you might expect. I was particularly drawn to this bib due to the kuku penthouse. You either love it or hate it. I am in the latter camp and do not worry, your embarassment is entirely covered but is not compressed, squashed and entombed under layers of padding. The material is super light and great quality. Feel like a pro even though just starting out. ALso a big mention to BikeZaar as delivery was super fast and their prices are second to none. Final note - I liked this bib so much I had to buy a second! Will keep it boxed until the summer.
Assos T Campionissimo_S7 Bib Shorts Black Volkanga
Over the past 30 years, I have owned just about ever bib short from Castelli and Assos. The Campionissimo S7 shorts are the best I have owned. Just the right about of compression, great bib straps, comfortable but not diaper-like pad. After using them for a month, I purchased another pair.
Haven’t had a chance wear them yet, however I tried them on and they fit perfectly. I’m 177cm and 70kgs. As all Assos Bibs, I’m sure they will be super comfortable for those long rides.
Delivery arrived within a reasonable time, given the current restrictions.
