It was way back in the 1980's when Freddy Maertens, a two-time world champion asked Assos to create a heavier bib short that could be used for tough autumn riding in Belgium. Assos obliged and over the years they have been redesigned to make them perform even better, with the latest incarnation of these popular shorts being the T.tiburu_S7.

The shorts are base on the S7 platform but, further refined to suit riding in cooler temperatures. Instead of just taking the existing S7 platform, Assos have gone the extra mile and incorporated two additional inventions which is another step towards total comfort.

1.BlasenSchutz (bladderProtection) ASSOS first incorporated this feature with the s5 winter tights (2010). The front panel between the crotch area and the abdomen features ASSOS Stratagon wind block fabric. This ensures your bladder is not exposed to chill winds, which reduces the need to urinate while riding.

2.Integrated front pad protection (IPP) The insert platform used is from the s7 model équipe, but it features a new front construction. The insert is not sewn directly to the fabric. Instead, it continues to the panel end. This provides an extended layer of protection and no seams at all in the front area. Increased protection, greater comfort. Really nice and functional.

Assos have engineered the shorts to have a slightly asymmetrical compressive hold that stretches to move around your body, rather than vertically. Devoted followers of Assos will recognise this as the "click on" fit that Assos is known and loved for. Also new for the _S7 is the Y7 bib strap design which has been moved forward in the front for better support. By doing this the straps hug the torso, mimicking the body's movement without any gap, regardless of on-the-bike positioning.

Assos are best known for the quality and comfort of their seat pad's and the T.Campionissimo_S7 is no exception. Assos are calling the pad ''KuKuPenthouse'', yes, you have read that right. Made from an 8mm thick memory foam with a shock absorbing composition that returns to its natural position, ''filling the gap'' every time pedaling position is changed in the saddle through the shift of weight. The perforated design of the pad works to increase breathability and to shed weight. Combined with the ultra-soft microfibre top sheet, moisture is pulled from within the layers below, which allows it to dry much quicker. Before the S7 pad all short inserts were fastened (sewn or glued) but the new ''golden gate'' technology interrupts the sewing in the area ''between the legs'', creating 3 dimensional freedom in the most sensitive area.

The true magic of this chamois is located at the front, by removing the section of padding where a male cyclist's genitals would normally make contact the padding has been replaced by a soft, brushed microfiber layer, which creates a "nest," or cradle into which the genitals are comfortably supported. This is where the kuKuPenthouse name is derived, which is truly a first in chamois construction. Pressure is eliminated in this area, and ventilation is increased substantially compared to a traditional chamois.

Note: Assos clothing is sized small, Tweeks Cycles recommend you select one size above normal for an athletic fit, or two sizes above if you prefer a more relaxed fit.
