Strengths:    COMFORT!!!

Weaknesses:    Price

Bottom Line:   
This review is for the FI.Uno bib shorts. Most comfortable bibshorts that I've ever tried. Even better than Assos FI.Mille. I only wish they would last a little longer. Assos says that you can't have ultimate comfort without giving up some durability. Unfortunately this appears to be the case. However, after trying several other bib shorts, these are without a doubt, the best in terms of comfort.

Strengths:    Insert & compression

Weaknesses:    lycra longevity, short torso

Bottom Line:   
Insert & lycra are very comfortable. Suspenders are too short for my torso, causes discomfort when I stand, ok for riding. Lycra balled up and wore out quicker than I expected.

Strengths:    Comfort both in the seat and how it fits the body over all, also quality of the stitching and placement of seams

Weaknesses:    Price...ouch!

Bottom Line:   
I didn't believe the hype till I tried them. My previous experience was with Giordana and Nalini, but the first time I put on the Assos' I felt the difference, I almost didn't want to take them off.

Strengths:    Fit, chamious, amazing comfort

Weaknesses:    pricey, but, worth every penny!!

Bottom Line:   
I already own the Assos half short, which is amazing!!! This one is just as good!! The best shorts I have ever owned. I retired all my other in favor of these. I have a bad back, and the chamious in these is so good, I ride longer and with much less stess on my body. Just amazing.

Submitted by jayrange a Weekend Warrior from Washington, DC

Date Reviewed: July 17, 2002

Strengths:    Good fit for the insert and reasonably comfortable for the long haul.

Weaknesses:    Very expensive, material no more durable and perhaps less durable than less expensive shorts I own.

Bottom Line:   
Good fit in seat but bib somewhat short for my upper torso. Synthetic insert was reasonably comfortable, but I prefer the insert in my Performance Elite Bibs. The fabric has not held up as well as some other shorts I own.
