10 reviews

Where performance meets sustainability. The perfect fibre combination suited to endurance, deep winter and early morning rides, offering excellent windproofing, water-resistance, durability. 36 months in development, this is a highly engineered piece of kit, with the simplicity and elegance of ashmei design. The close to skin fit offers a semi-compressive fit which hugs the body, providing the perfect thermal micro-climate.

When exposed to the elements, a PFC free water-resistant finish keeps raindrops at bay, while the close-knit of Merino Wool offers excellent wind protection. The upper body is made using our Merino + Carbon blend, acting as the first layer of core protection. The bespoke high-density foam chamois is top in class, with rapid drying properties.

Merino wool is natural, renewable and biodegradable. It is also anti-bacterial, non-itchy, warm when it is cold and cooling when it is warm.

All Merino is not equal, like any fibre it can be treated in different ways and combined with other fibres to improve performance. We’ve engineered each of our Merino fabrics for optimal performance in sport and ensured that all of our wool is sourced from farms which have the highest standards of animal welfare.

We are certified by global authority Woolmark for the quality of our Merino products and will continue to ensure the Merino we procure achieves the highest ethical standards.

Crafted using our powerful Microfibre fabric, the Men's Bib Short has a skin tight fit. The Short is designed to be a compressive fit.

How do you repair this?

First impressions were excellent. It's very compressive but I really didn’t notice that I was wearing it on my first ride. Alas, I came off on some gravel second time out and ripped the bib badly. Disappointed not to get a reply from Ashmei when I emailed asking for advice on repairs - the fabric is quite unusual, so I don’t want to make a mess of it with the needle and thread, given the high price. I hadn’t got a long way into that second ride, which was to be a 200km, but my guess is I’d be giving a much higher rating if I didn’t have doubts about the durability and follow up service.


Hi George, really sorry to hear you've come off your bike! Please could you drop an email to and well come right back to you with repair advice. Best, Elliot

Not being a fan of cold weather riding, because of these luxurious and toasty bibs I have been converted. The feel and fit of these bibs have made them my go to in the colder NYC weather. The compression is spot on - not too much but just enough to feel confident and the pad is very comfortable on long rides. Especially like the comfy fleecy backing, Bravo Ashmei - well worth the wait!

First off I live in SoCal (Los Angeles) and the typical morning ride is about 16°C (60°F for me). That's as cold as it get typically and since I've purchased these 3/4 Merino Bibs I haven't used any other bib since. The fabric is noticeablly thicker, but not bulky. I love the feel of the merino wool blend as opposed to other shorts in my closet. It keeps me warm but at the same time not hot. Since I've been stuck at home, I've had more time to ride during the week and I get a little lazy. I've worn these bibs three times in this week and just hung them up to air out after each ride and there is no smell. I was worried that the fabric would get loose around the calf because it's wool but nope, they hold their shape. The chamois is well suited for long days in the saddle. I love these knickers, waiting for Ashmei to make regular length merino bib shorts and a lightweight merino long sleeve jersey. Thanks Ashmei. P. S. I know some people love it but, I would be OK with the packaging coming in something simple. No box, just ship it in an eco friendly bag.

Been wearing these over the winter and really impressed. Fantastic bit of kit that feel real quality. The pad is super comfy and I love the snug but not tight feel of the fabric when they are on. Very well thought out item
