"Although they are expensive, the fit and comfort is something else. If looked after properly they seem to last far longer than other bib shorts, meaning they are not more expensive in the long run. Shame they have been discontinued!"
Pros: Durable, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Versatile, Good Fit

"It looks gorgeous, but the quality is not there. Markings on the torque scale are badly applied, and are too wide and crooked making accurate selection of desired torque nearly impossible. I am not willing to use it on a carbon frame until it is calibrated - meaning I have pretty much wasted my money.
Very disappointed - will teach me to buy for looks!"
Pros: Attractive
Cons: Expensive, Low Quality

Assos T FI.13 S5 Bib Shorts
T FI.13_S5 offers pure performance while riding. A new benchmark in bib shorts, it is lighter, lower volume, with less pressure on sensitive areas.
 

Comparable sizing for FI.13

Is the fit of FI13 S5 same as Uno & Mille?

I wear a M in both mille and uno s5 but am keen to get into the FI.
Are they tighter? If so, is it really noticeable?

Thanks
For me the Mille was much bigger - I am a large in Uno and F1.13 S5, but even a medium in the Mille was too big. Hope this helps!

750ml Bottles

Easy to break the tablets for a 750ml bottle (1.5 tablets)?
Dead easy - they are marked with a line and break easily. I often break them in half to fit in narrow neck bottles.

The revolutionary Podium is the squeezable bottle for the 21st century.
 

Are these bottles designed to fit standard cages?

I like these bottles but find them hard to remove while riding. Do I need to change my cages, and if so, what to?
The Arundel carbon cages work - just. It is still a very tight fit; at least you don't have to worry about losing your bidon :)

The Mandible is tough enough for any type of use, including mountain bike, triathlon style brackets, and cobble-esque road riding. Designed for lengthy rides, The Mandible is strong but light, and work better than anything else available.
 

Do these come with mounting bolts included

Sure do!
