The Assos MILLE GT Spring Fall Knickers replace the Tiburu model with increased insulation, better integrated water and wind protection, and ideal comfort. These are the new essential Fall/Spring knickers for serious cyclists who require performance and comfort in cool, wet or dry conditions. From the fit and finish, wind and water resistance, to the performance and exacting fit, it's all here in one tight package. By using cutting edge fabrics and materials the feasible climate range features as one of the most versatile garments in the Assos climaCode seasonal range. Simply a must for any serious year-round cyclist.
The dominant fabric is the Assos developed RX Heavy- a brushed warp-knit fabric developed to provide exceptional comfort, wick moisture, add high levels of insulation, and remain extremely flexible. The 290g/m2 protection weight is ideal for a thermal knicker with such integrated barrier properties. The use of RX Heavy eliminated some technical features the Tiburu required, simplifying and improving panel construction, stretch and comfort. Assos complements the forward facing protection with RX Light, a lightweight, asymmetrical-stretch warp-knit fabric developed to provide light insulation and boost comfort in high-flex areas. The protection and insulation carry a 205g/m2
measurement, but for the rear zones that don't have to block onrushing air and water, the lighter version delivers greater stretch and fit without sacrificing compressive support or performance. Both RX Heavy and Light feature the fiber based ECO water-repellent technology and odorControl system that allows you have a fresh feel without odor on every ride.
At the "heart" of the MILLE GT Spring/Fall Knicker lies the Assos Mille_S7 - a revolutionary insert offering a deft balance of performance and comfort with 8mm of Assos designed memoryFoam which features a shock absorbing and closed cell foam construction. The memoryFoam padding returns to its original form as soon as pressure is released. This means that every time your pedaling position changes, you move on the saddle or shift your weight, memoryFoam foam fills the gap. The foam is placed in strategic areas including around each side of the prostate area to create a well for pressure release. The top layer of the chamois is billed as Assos superAir and is located directly under the top sheet. This waffled pattern design dissipates heat by creating proper air flow, while simultaneously wicks moisture and perspiration away from your body. Anti-bacterial threading is used on the top sheet to help keep the top pad clean and sanitary. Proprietary goldenGate technology sees the pad stitched at the front and rear, leaving the center of the pad free to float and conform to your bod's natural shape. This results in a true organic feel to a place on your body that has nearly constant direct contact to the bicycle.
The bib upper has anatomic and flat suspenders that use Assos's Y7 Bib Carrier strap design. These straps are s-shaped, super flat and move towards the outside of your chest which offer better support while being lower profile. Thanks to Assos, bib straps no longer have to sit directly on your clavicle. keeping the Y-shape lower The Y7 carriers offer the support you need while feeling like they are not even there. Overall, Assos employs their proven AEPD, Advanced Ergonomic Pattern Design concept to make the garment fit like a second skin. When you first put the bib tights on, you will notice they pull in certain areas and the fabric around the knees tend to sag. When you get on the bike and assume the cycling position, the garment transforms into a second skin. You can have you cycling clothes fit when your sedentary or when you're cycling, you cannot have both. This is pure performance cycling clothing after all.
