Assos has a long history of appearing on the podiums of cycling's biggest events. Sometimes these appearances are prominent public endorsements, as with Cancellara in Rio, and sometimes they're clandestine, as with the entire podium of the 1982 worlds. Considering that that podium comprised the likes of Saronni, LeMond, and Kelly, that's a ringing endorsement, and it demonstrates the brand's dedication to creating kit that meets the expectations of the most demanding cyclists in the world. The Men's T. milleshorts_s7 represent a different side of Assos' design philosophy. It privileges that same level of technical nous and expert construction, but it does so in a fit that accommodates those of us who aren't quite in the shape that Saronni enjoyed during his superlative '82 season.

This durable fabric is used for the low-volume panels of the T. neoPro_s7, as it's incredibly supportive, hard-wearing, soft on the skin, lightweight enough to be appropriate throughout summer. It provides exceptional breathability, and it rapidly transfers moisture to its quick-drying outer surface. While that level of moisture management is...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
