H.milleshorts_s7 Shorts

Like with their bibbed brethren, the bib-free H.milleshorts_s7 Shorts showcase Assos' goldenGate construction method, which may be our favorite recent advancement in cycling shorts' technology. GoldenGate involves attaching the chamois at the front and rear, leaving the sides free to float so the chamois moves with your body instead of against it. This effectively relocates friction from the skin/chamois interface to the chamois/shorts, all but eliminating friction. We're starting to see this feature crop up in other manufacturers' lines but — true to the precedent of history — Assos did it first and continues to do it better.

The Type.429 material, a durable fabric whose properties are a study in apparent contradictions, is another element of the H.milleshorts that has enjoyed flattering imitation. It combines a low-volume with moderately compressive supportive to keep both weight and muscle fatigue to a minimum. It also enjoys the durability of a ripstop material but with breathability, moisture management, and a comfortable touch that belies its hard-wearing nature.

The shorts are cut to accommodate a regular, athletic build and — given that this is Assos — you won't be surprised to learn that the shape is engineered so they fit best when you're in the saddle. While we can't speak for every cyclist, not all of us at Competitive are built like the rail-thin, razor-elbowed climbers of the pro peloton. The mille fit means that the shorts conform to our body with a gently compressive, second-skin fit instead of squeezing and pinching our legs into bulging shapes that range from unflattering to uncomfortable.

The leg and waistbands continue this theme of fitting your body instead of forcing your body to fit the shorts. The legs terminate in low-volume superFlat grip bands to keep the cuffs securely in place, and the waistband uses gentle compression and a wide footprint to ensure coverage without adding pressure and restriction to your stomach.

The lack of bibs mean that the H.milleshorts are able to transcend the barriers of warm-weather imposed on other shorts. They're useful as a base layer when temperatures and precipitation start falling, because you can wear them beneath bib tights without adding undue bulk or interfering with your torso layering strategy. When the weather heads south, you won't be stuck with a terry-cloth winter chamois. Considering that Assos is known as "the shorts company" for a reason, that's a welcome revelation.

The H.milleshorts_s7 incorporate the amethyst chamois found throughout Assos' line in kit like the T.neoPro_s7 bib shorts. At its heart is the same 8mm-thick memoryFoam material first introduced in the venerable _s2 FI.13. This material exhibits remarkable return properties, so it quickly returns to its original position after deformation, essentially filling the gaps that your pedal stroke produces while your weight shifts throughout the pedaling motion. As you can imagine, the free-floating, goldenGate design also facilitates this action, which keeps contact constant to avoid chafing. The superAir and waffle construction of memoryFoam's first two layers warrant special attention, as they increase breathability and shed weight through negative space. It also effectively increase's the material's surface area, transporting moisture away from your skin to accelerate drying.

Some reviewers seem to be have a bias that all Assos are high end but when it comes to the non-bib version they only offer their lower end line. In general, bibs are nicer but riding inside so much I was finding myself being more comfortable taking the shoulder straps off. These Assos seemed like a more reasonable alternative. I would agree somewhat that they run slightly large. I usually wear an XL in Rapha and a few other Italian brands mostly due to my height. These seem loose when you’re standing but once you pull them up enough and maybe tuck in a base layer they are ok in a riding position, but some may want to size down to have the waist more snug. Anyone familiar with European sizing will know that it is entirely inconsistent with American vanity sizing. If you’re shorter and heavier you may want to opt for bibs which do not run elastic around the waist. The pad in this feels slightly too big. For comparison I ran some old school pro bibs from 2003 era and they felt fine, but these feel like you’re sitting on a pillow in comparison but it’s not a bad thing. You just need to pull them all the way up and get the pad situated correctly without big gaps. For those that feel like they aren’t keeping your junk in place you probably want to run bibs because the elastic waist is pretty thin. The only seam that might bother you is in the back and if you tuck in a base layer like you should then it won’t be an issue.

There is one piece of fabric stitched together with one seem on the back of the leg. On my shorts, the left leg seem, at the bottom, near knee is very thick and irritates my skin when I peddle. Could not believe how thick the seem is. The gripper fabric at very bottom of shorts is sticky, even though it is loose, and I have pretty wide thighs. Padding in seat is pretty good. The material used is good. Issue is with fitting and stitching.

Awful fit

Size Bought
Medium

I thought expensive Assos shorts would be awesome. Wrong, worst ever. The length is long and the cuffs around the thighs are loose because they hang down too far near the knees. I'm 5'11 160 lbs pretty much medium but the fit on these totally sucks. Return policy sucks too, you have to pay for the return shipping for the horrible product that they shouldn't sell in the first place. Never ordering from this place again.

I tried many different shorts before buying these. The others were also good name brands. All had a chamois that was uncomfortable for riding 20 miles. The pain was awful . I tried these and I have never looked back. I completed a Century ride in July and I have never regretted buying these. They are comfortable in the legs and are very breathable . The waistline fits plush but not tight. I have two pair and will purchase again.

The shorts run large

Fit:
Runs large

First off, I own several Assos shorts (2) and bibshorts (5), and they are mostly Mediums (maybe one large). I'm 5'10", 144lbs. The Mediums in this short fit okay in the torso, but the legs are too long, which puts the elastic cuff below the quads, which makes the elastic loose and wrinkly...hanging there like the cuffs of short pants. I actually ordered a second Medium thinking it might've been a defect (it wasn't). The Small fit perfectly - though I wouldn't want to go any tighter through the torso - but the chamois fit in the Small is perfect.

Spoke to an Assos rep and provided him my measurements. Recommended the large. The legs and waist fit great. Great material. But zero space for the soldiers. Wore them for one 30 mile ride and I was ready to tear them off after 1 mile.

Your comment makes sense about not having space for the soldiers. The far right hand pick (the one with the shorts turned inside out) sure looks like it is made for lady parts.

It's recommended that you adjust your "soldiers" forward and away from your thighs...a good way to avoid chafing as well.

I read the reviews too before buying...and I always wear a medium short, and I thought a small would just be too small. But I figured this is Assos, and the guys saying they run large, are probably all skinny race guys....well...they were exactly right !! This short runs way too large....the leg cuff is loose as hell ! Waist band is loose too. I really wanted these short to work for me...and I am very disappointed !

I'm 6'0, 155lb, 31-32 inch waist, and ordered the medium but they're too big, not enough compression in the waist and lower thigh in particular.

Replaced with small and would be perfect if the front rise was higher and had a drawstring to secure it from sliding down. I had to return.

Have used many shorts and switch to Assos 12 years ago. Purchased these over a year ago and find them more comfortable than previous versions. Overall, have found my Assos shorts have held up well replacing only after the backs become too see through (adding still good)

Bibs don’t seem to work for me. Straps are usually too short. Shorts are the only other option, but these require frequent adjustments. They slowly work their way down a bit. Otherwise, good quality and comfy chamois.

Assos has been my favorite brand of shorts for years now. That being said I have always wondered why they only made bibs. Bibs are great for decent rides but longer rides and the call of nature....well lets just say it requires almost complete.... These shorts are the best, definitely run a size larger but otherwise they are comfortable for long or short rides.

I ordered MEDIUM and they are just a wee bit large. Not a problem, but if I order more, I might go down to a small just for grins and giggles. These are outrageously lightweight feeling. Don't know the actual weight, but they "feel" fantastic. Chamois is quite nice and if these hold up as well as my other Assos stuff, these will likely make it through the bulk of the calendar year. These are primarily for riding on the trainer and rollers, as they're shorts instead of bibs, and are replacing my Louis Garneau CB Carbon 2 Shorts which I simply couldn't tolerate any longer. I ride about 7-10 hours/week on the rollers, and need something that can survive a huge amount of sweat and daily washings (with WIN detergent, of course). The Garneau fabric was weird, and over time, the chamois caused problems "in front". Let's just leave it there... These Assos shorts will be tested pretty heavily in the next 10 days; I'll use them for the Tour of Sufferlandria which puts me on the bike for nine days and about 1110 TSS.

These are the best in the business. No close seconds. Add the correct 'butter' of choice and go all day. My others, insert any brand here, all ran out of comfort at 3-4 hours no matter how much lube was used. If I have used up my liners and have a different model I do shorter rides...

I have a size 38 inch waist. What size mens ASSOS H.MILLESHORTS_S7 SHORTS should I order? Is is unclear in the sizing chart. Regards, Vito Pagano

I'm w36 and the size L fits me perfect. So for w38, I'd say the "XL." Or check with a customer service rep.
