T Equipe Evo Short

For over four decades, the Assos name has represented the highest quality cycling apparel designed to help professionals and cyclist like you, perform at your best. Steady refinements over the years have us at the S7 Generation of shorts, which includes these all new T Equipe Evo Short, representing 5 years of engineering helping foster new technologies and materials that represents the Swiss brand's identity towards race-tuned perfection. The goal with these shorts was to produce super comfortable everyday bibs, borrowing heavily from the brand's T.Tiburu, T.Cento, and T.Campionissimo bibs, allowing every cyclist the opportunity to experience Assos bibs. 

Assos crafts the T Equipe Evo from a textile known as Type.439 Diadema. This material is specific to Assos and it worked with its fabric supplier to create a superior material designed for the rigors of cycling. As soon as you put on the bibs, the first thing you'll notice is it's incredibly comfortable and supportive. In use, while out for a ride, its exceptional breathability is prized as it rapidly transfers moisture to its quick-drying outer surface. This smooth fabric has a weave of two different rates of 4-way stretch which provides a moderately compressive hold, supporting hard-working leg muscles. This helps shield muscles from fatigue-inducing effects of muscle oscillation typical of riding over rougher roads. This Type.439 material is finished with an iceColor application, which reflects sunlight and thus reduces heat absorption helping keep muscles cooler. While designing skinsuits for the 2012 Olympics, Assos developed a design known as Aero Patterning Fenomeno1. It allows for construction of the garment with a single seam on the rear of your legs so the main fabric can provide more compression and support as it wraps around your thighs. And at the leg openings, the Super Flat Grippers are minimal offering optimal stretch holding the cuffs in place without any excessive pressure.

The Assos fit is unique and these particular bibs are more form-fitting and compressive than its regularFit and comfortFit options. As such, it provides a slightly asymmetrical compressive hold that stretches more around your body, rather than vertically. This stretch works to firmly secure the shorts in place, for better aerodynamics and comfort while down in the cycling position, feeling more dialed while stretched out to the bars and slightly more restrictive when off the bike. This feeling has long been known to Assos' devoted followers as the signature "click on" fit. Y7 Frame Carrier Bib Tech further bolsters this cycling specific support and by utilizing wider cuts of elastic, the pressure is better distributed on the shoulders. These wider straps allow the uppers to better hug the torso so it follows your body's movements for better support.

Perhaps the most important feature of cycling shorts is the chamois. This new insert, known as the equipeEVO_S7 comes in a distinctive black color. Further refinements include cutouts at the front known ad Krater Ventilation, for increased airflow helping to improve comfort on longer, hotter rides.

As one of the most technologically advanced chamois on the market, Assos' superiority comes from its extensive product testing and support of the sport's finest. The engineers began with an 8mm-thick memory foam material as its shock absorbing composition and ability to return to its original position throughout the pedal stroke provides comfort, whether it’s a recovery day or turning the pedals in anger. The Assos Waffle design makes an appearance with its perforated design working to increase breathability while shedding weight. Additionally, this dimpling, combined with the ultra-soft microfiber top sheet, effectively pulls moisture from within the layers below, which allows it to dry much quicker than the previous _s5 chamois. Once the chamois layup was up to their standards, the engineers began rethinking the way a traditional chamois is attached to the shorts. This led to a design called Golden Gate, which removes the stitching along both of the chamois' side panels, allowing for three-dimensional freedom of movement and a floating chamois of sorts. The reduction of seams helps further reduce friction and an anti-bacterial treatment is utilized to improve hygiene and reduce odors.

The Assos T Equipe Evo is available in seven sizes from X-Small to TIR and in the colors Black Silverfever, Nationalred, Blackseriesm, and Profblack.

Typical fit and quality of fabric

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

This exemplifies the usual fit, quality of materials and construction that you grow accustomed to from Assos. Still my favorite road cycling clothing brand, in spite of the higher than average price.

Great shorts so far

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I have a variety of shorts and Assos rank up there in first. I've only used them on my indoor trainer and I have only one comment in that the chamois, although the most comfortable one I've owned is a little thin. Final review is when I can get outside and try them. Quality all the way around.

Lacks Durability!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

These shorts are great comfort and fit-wise, but the pair I received seriously lack durability. After 5 months - estimate 20 rides in these shorts - the shorts developed a hole in the inner leg area. Unfortunately the Assos warranty is only 3 months - I'm trying my luck with the repair service.

I also had the same issue (the hole).

Great bibs, had to size up

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

These are fabulous, like a great pair of sunglasses you nearly forget you're wearing. I almost always have a bit of rub in the saddle area with Castelli, Pearl, Ornot, and with these I don't. Worth the money, like others I ordered a 2nd pair. I like my kits tight/racy and by the size chart I was a Medium, had to return for a Large and they still have plenty of compression. If you're quite slender they should fit by the chart, bigger thighs or buttocks I'd recommend sizing up.

Great fit, riding comfort

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

This is the second pair of T Equipe Evo shorts that I have. I love them and wear them much more than any other shorts that I own. Great fit and comfortable to wear for long rides

Best bibs I've ever worn.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

First ride in these bibs last night and they are amazing. Pricey for certain, but you get what you pay for.

The winner is

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: large in both shorts

Several months ago I purchased both the Giordana FR-C Pro Bib Short and the Assos T Equipe Evo Shorts. When first trying them on I liked the fit of the Assos shorts however after a number of rides I much prefer the Giordana shorts. The fabric is more compressive than the Assos which feels thin and flimsy. I am comfortable during a 30+ mile ride in the Girodana shorts while the Assos shorts are a real pain in the but before I am half way through the same ride.

Great chamois, poor leg grippers

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These great shorts are well built and their chamois is fantastic. I am not sure whether the fact that the chamois is free to float is a factor but it seems to works, and intuitively it make lots of sense. The front pouch is also great, as is in Giordana shorts: why not all manufacturers use this simple game-changer and insist on riders having male parts smashed is a mistery to me. I thought that the very expensive Giordana were the best but I must say these are more comfortable. What I would change, and the reason for 4 and not 5 stars: 1) I’d prefer a longer leg. These shorts are indeed rather short, even without counting that 2) the leg grippers are not very good and the legs creep up your thigh during a ride or even when doing post-ride exercises.
This being said, Castelli (even top models with Progetto 2 chamois) does not come close to compete with this short. I will check if Assos has a longer leg version (like Giordana) to buy a new one.

Game changer

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

Assos is at another level, ive used castellis and perl izumis, and these bibs are way way better, just follow the chart and you will be fine

Best Bib shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I have used many bibs including skins, Castelli and Assos. This is the best I have ever used. Worth every penny.
The only problem is that now I do not want to use any of the other ones I have.

Live up to the hype

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These are great bib shorts. They have a race fit and the size chart works well. The chamois is fantastic and comfortable. I've used these on rides of up to 8 hours long with comfort the entire time.

EDIT: wore these along with a few other chamois during the 25 Hours in Frog Hollow. I did the Solo Category. Assos chamois performed flawlessly for 12 of those hours. I also wore a DNA chamois, that I wanted out of after 3 hours and a Sportful Total Comfort Pro chamois that performed admirably on a cold weather bib short. The Assos bibs were hands down the go to most comfortable. I'm hooked.

Live up to my expectations

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

I was unsure about spending this kind of money on a pair of shorts but they were worth every penny. They are very comfortable and the sizing is spot on.

One more great cycling shorts from Assos

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This is my 4th Assos shorts. I have used in a race and it looks and feel perfect for training and races. Form fitting (fits true to size), holds everything in place, etc!

Would not change a thing

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

First pair of Assos bibs. I’ve typically used some mid range $100-$150 bibs which have been good. The big differences for me are the roominess for your man parts and the chamois, which was comfortable for all of my 3 hour ride. I don’t think I’ll be able to go back to my normal bibs for rides over 2 hours!

Best short I've ever owned in 40 years

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

Best in terms of fit, comfort, and looks. I've been cycling (competitively and for fitness) for 40 years, and have owned many brands of cycling clothing, including a dozen or so Assos shorts. After trying everything else, and being disappointed, now I only buy Assos. Cost more but lasts way longer (and fits better) than anything else out there. Assos is simply the best, in terms of fit, durability, comfort, and looks.

Great Improvement!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I've been wearing ASSOS bib shorts for a number of years and these are by far my favorite shorts! I've done a number of 5+ hour gravel rides in these shorts with zero issues with soreness during the ride.

Cough up the money, they will last and your taint will thank you!

The "Go To"

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I've got 3 pairs of Assos Equipe bibs, 2 of the Evo, and one of the S7. I've spent 10 hour days in them, and 1 hour trainer sessions. The only difference between the EVO and S7 is the chaimois is black and has more venting perforations at the front of the EVO. Otherwise they're the same bibs, the S7s are just offered in the black with the small pink band.
I'm 5'8", 145lbs and wear a medium. I've had small Assos bibs in the S5 line, and I'm sure the only difference is the amount of stretch/compression. The mediums don't move on me at all, and just fit right.
My favorite part of these bibs is the chamois. Its only 8mm think, but is plenty cushing, and doesn't pack down over the course of the ride. The "footprint" of it is much larger than most, extending more forward, and creating an "anotomic cup" shall we say, that keeps everything comfortably in one spot. I've had Castelli Free Aero bibs, and the Progetto X2 chamois is comfy, but it doesn't have that forward pocket, so the boys are just mashed up against your abdomen.
Bibs are one item where higher price does mean higher quality fit and features. I think the Equipe EVOs provide the best value for the dollar.

Hi Jon, out of all the Assos bibs how would you rate these against the others? Also I am about to pull the trigger but want to make sure I get the right size. I typically get mediums but I hear conflicting reviews about Assos running small, I am 5’8” and weigh 163

Assos quality approved

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Being my first pair of Assos bib shorts, I had some pretty high expectations -I would say I am satisfied overall. My first impression of the bib shorts was the quality and thickness of the materials. I own other bib shorts that are lighter in weight and thinner fabrics, but these keep you cool just fine in hot weather and have a cooling effect against a breeze. I like how the straps sit wide outside of your chest, moreso than most other bib straps which can cause comfort issues. In the riding position, Assos has proven their bottoms feel just right; No tension or irritation after a couple hours in the saddle. The chamois is great, it's soft, ventilated, and is plenty thick at 8mm surprisingly. At 5ft9 155, the Medium is a slightly big on me and doesn't quite fit as snug as I would like. The leg grippers would probably do their job better and not slide as much if there was more compression. That's the only reason I give them 4 stars. Other than that, I have no complaints and recommend these bib shorts for someone looking for one of the best they can find.

Agree that the leg grippers are not that good: the leg slides on your thigh as much as 5 cm!

Worth the price of admission.

  • Fit: True to size

There are rumors of riders in the pro peloton who aren't sponsored by Assos replacing the chamois in their team kit with Assos chamois. After riding with these it's easy to understand how that might be true.

Many have raved about Assos’ famous “click fit” and I’ll add my voice to that group. After putting them on and getting everything situated (more on that in a second), the shorts feel a little weird while standing or walking, but disappeared once in the riding position as one would expect. Straps that seemed like they might be a touch too short slid right into place and didn’t bite into my shoulders as I stretched into my cockpit. These shorts have a nice racing and supportive fit, though if you’re one who likes boa constrictor compression around your guns you might consider going down a size provided the rest of the shorts’ dimensions allow it. The torso is cut a little lower which eliminates compression on your diaphragm and makes things easier when nature comes calling. Sizing seems to be right on, though some might even consider going down a size.

And what about that chamois? With their “golden gate” allowing for some free movement, you’ll want to be certain that it’s centered when you put the shorts on. This isn’t that big a deal and usually happens “automagically” but check anyway. Once things are situated you’ll be comfortable and still have the support you want without being crushed like a department store mannequin. All shorts should be like this. The chamois cover is soft and padding is sufficient for long hours in the saddle without giving you the diaper-butt look. I’m looking at you PI. And the ventilation is excellent. In fact, my saddle has a cutout and I’m assuming I benefit from the ventilation more than those without a cutout. This might be something to consider in the early spring or late fall, but so far it’s been fantastic and I’m sure will be a god-send during the blistering days of summer.

The Assos brand name aside, features like this don’t come cheap. Depending on the shorts you normally buy they’ll be 1.5-2x plus the cost. But if you can swing it, they’ll make it hard, if not impossible, to go back to your other shorts.
