ASSOS MILLE GT Bib Shorts C2
WHAT IT IS
The next generation in committed riders’ bib shorts of choice, defined by its frictionless waist, refined air-cooling insert, and muscle-wrapping textile.
WHY WE MADE IT
We took this generational redesign as an opportunity to make the MILLE GT better at the things we loved about its predecessor, including our premium X-frame suspension carriage, a refined comfort waist fit, and a reduction in seams and weight (28% and 5g, respectively). The insert also got some attention receiving 3mm of additional cushioning. We also updated the Odor Control Top Sheet Tex to the Sugar Blue colorway.
WHEN/HOW TO USE IT
The MILLE GT is designed specifically for long training rides and endurance cycling, but it’s appropriate for every ride, every day, every time you’re in the saddle.
Type.429 is flexible enough for a streamlined fit; breathable enough for the heights of summer; compressive enough to respond to and support your body; and substantial enough to resist the abuse of countless kilometers. A true daily workhorse.
C2 AEPD regularFit is based on our performance race models but tuned for comfort with a more forgiving zeroPressure Waist. Streamlined performance for all-day cycling with our standard leg length.
- zeroPressure Waist: A comfort fit innovation that adds accommodation at the waist with a new elastic that reduces sag and ensures stretch-and-return.
- X-frame: A-frame suspension inherited from the MILLE GTS bibs. Limits sag on the lower back for a confident fit that stabilizes the chamois and main body panel.
- Ultralight Leg Grippers: A silicone treatment woven through the 6cm bands creates a secure hold without restriction or transitional ridges between body and shorts.
MILLE GT C2 INSERT
- Shock-Absorb Damping Mono: Compressive foam layers in an 11mm endurance platform. Thermoformed shaping reduces ridges and irritation.
- goldenGate: The stitching pattern anchors the front and back but lets the insert’s body float, allowing the chamois to move with your body rather than against it.
- 3D Waffle: A patented, three-layer, perforated foam that increases breathability and eliminates excess weight.
