Every serious cyclist needs a great bib knicker to best experience and dominate the shoulder seasons. It must offer great feel, fit, and ideally combination of modest thermal gain and water protection. The Assos Mille GT Spring Fall Bib Knickers C2 are an updated ¾ bib tight with excellent warmth, flexibility and extra knee coverage, ideally suited to cooler spring and autumn cycling conditions. When you're facing changeable weather conditions and it's too mild for winter tights but too cool for shorts, the Mille GT Spring Fall Bib Knickers C2 are the answer. Assos engineer the tights using their embracingly comfortable RX EVO Warmth textile. This technical fabric offers a mid-weight level of insulation that is ideally suited to cool, but not freezing, weather. The fleecy inner provide heat-trapping warmth and excellent breathability ensures you're not too hot and sweaty during high-tempo efforts. The outer is also treated with a water-repellent finish, adding comfort on damp and drizzly days.
The re-engineered design of the Knickers sees Assos engineer panels for an even better fit compared to its predecessor and to allow the use of fewer seams to eliminate irritation. Balancing comfort, flexibility and streamlined performance, the regularFit is perfect for your longer endurance rides and for more intense training sessions. Ultralight leg grippers see elastic woven through the leg bands, creating a secure hold minus restriction. To the upper of the tights, the Assos X-Frame design has been borrowed from the Equipe RSR summer bibs. This gives support for the lower part of the tights and stabilizes the seat pad when you’re pedaling and moving. This leads to improved comfort on longer bike rides. Across the belly the zeroPressure Waist features a superbly soft and highly elastic material with a raw cut edge, giving you a flexible but firm fit without adding pressure or causing pinching.
The final element is the Mille GT C2 pad insert, which delivers exceptional comfort and support with breathability and Assos construction technologies that make it truly special. The thermoformed 11mm thick superAir microShock foam takes the edge of indoors or out, and is very light weight. The designers use their 3D Waffle 3L insert to allow for more airflow and greater comfort, and that is now complemented by the goldenGate support zone that allows the insert to move with rider, somewhat independent of the short fabric.
