But having bought them (fairly cheaply) they were quickly relegated to winter use, under tights, to get some use out of them - but they just refuse to wear out. My summer shorts have very much thinner padding or none at all.Audax67 wrote:[The older S5 shorts were stitched all round
I hated the first S5s I had for that reason: the pad wodged up and chafed to the extent that I complained to Assos. They asked what size I was wearing and then told me to send a pic of myself in cycling kit. They then told me that in their opinion I should be wearing size S instead of L, and offered me a pair at half price. I opted for M instead and they were OK. The only trouble thereafter was that on hydraulic easement stops I had to bend double to get at the tackle.
