- Assos bib-shorts sizing
Hi, I have tried on a friends pair of Assos T F1.Mille S5 bib-shorts (regular), in size large, however they are much too small.Posted 6 years ago
I am 178cm tall, weigh 95kg, 92cm waist, 114cm chest. (5’10”, 14st 7lb, 36″ waist, 44″ chest)
The Assos sizing chart for a height of 178cm suggests I would require a size medium but as the large was way too small, I am wondering what size you would recommend I tried? My Nike shorts are XXL and are not loose at all… Should I try the XLG or the TIR? At well over £100, I’d like to get it right!!!
I’m a similar height but probably a size up in waist and chest and the XLG Mille fit me fine. You may be ok in an XL as the Mille are a slightly more relaxed fit I think, but a TIR would definitely be too big. As above, try some on if possible or buy from somewhere online with easy returns.Posted 6 years agoFuzzyWuzzySubscriber
You’re better off with DHB’s, Assos just aren’t cut to accommodate the more generously proportioned of us. The sizes increase by height not waist line apart from the TIR but that’s based on you being 6’4″ in the first place. Buying the Fi.13’s is a bad idea to – they’re even more tightly cut than the Unos (which are more tightly cut than the Milles), they’re also not designed as a long lasting high mileage short.Posted 6 years agonjee20Subscriber
The F.I.13s are a tighter cut, so you may find that an issue.
I’m 5’10”, 30″ waist, but clearly of ample thigh as I’m a large, and my F.I.13s are rather snug. Milles and Unos are more generously cut.
You’ve ordered them now, try them when you get them, if they’re not right, send them back. Bear in mind the bib straps are on the short side when you’re off the bike so that they’re right when you’re on it.Posted 6 years agocarbon337Member
Dragging this one up from the past a bit
Just recevied some F1 Uno in a size medium im 71kg and 178cm – right in the middle of the M size guide chart.
The leg grippers are actually baggy around my thighs and the gripper is too low down and is actually on my knee cap and sitting right in the crack on the back of my knee. Gutted as they took bloody 7 days to get here from Evans.
I now need to get shop to order in a size S – go try them swap them if they are ok if not they need returned via post as i used paypal. I knew i should have just ordered the Rapha ones which say im a Small on their guide.Posted 5 years agobob_summersMember
I bought some Milles recently with the same problem, gripper was loose and too low. Hadn’t realised they come in two lengths, I swapped them for the regular length and they’re fine. You’re the same height/weight as men, sounds like you’ve got the long ones?
Edited, got milles and unos mixed up 😳Posted 5 years ago
