    Assos chamois shorts
    Has any one tried the Assos H.RallyBoxer_S7 mountain bike shorts with the extra hip pad? Assos claims that the chamois is specifically designed for mountain biking. I want to buy a new pair of chamois shorts but I want the absolute best chamois I can get.

    Assos is pretty much the pinnacle of road kit/chamois lore IMO, but I have no personal experience.

    I have not tried them but the center seam on those shorts looks painful. To me a 6 panel design with no center seam is much more comfortable.

    Yes, I have a couple of pairs of them. I bruised my hip badly a couple of years ago and wore them for a while after that. Don't use the pads very often now, though. For long rides I prefer the T.Cento pad, a little thicker and has the awesome Kuku Penthouse for your junk. More comfortable than the Rally shorts, but the Rally material is definitely stronger and abrasion-resistant if you crash a lot or hit things. Either way, Assos shorts are the only ones I'll let may azz, taint, junk, etc touch. They're all better than any other short from any other brand I've worn, which is a lot. I've spent a small fortune on bibs, saddles, and shoes to get the best thing I possibly can FOR ME. YMMV, but few I've talked to have been disappointed by Assos shorts.

    Thanks for the info Bman (and others). Where did you get your Assos shorts? I want to buy some but not sure where to order them.

    Have tried a lot of brands and none were near the quality of Assos.
    There should be a new Short with longer legs and UV-protection on the way for early next year.

    Assos changed their mind and will not make UV protection. Use Specialized Demo Pro pants and Gore C7 jacket in order not to need another surgery.
