Every cyclist who lives to ride, and ride hard, all year needs a great shoulder-season bib tight that delivers insulation, a high breathability rate, compression, comfort, and a top grade chamois insert. Enter the premium grade Assos Habutightsmille_s7 that can take you right into early winter, thriving around the 40°F temperature range.
The LL.Habu s7 tights feature Assos RX Medium fleece fabric with WR (water resistant) treatment on the main side panels that cover your hardworking leg muscles. The panels, which cover your knees as well, receive an extra helping of fleece to provide additional cold weather protection without loosing dexterity in this dynamic area. RX.Medium offers a unique three dimensional air-channel structure which creates a next-to-body micro air cushion resulting in increased heat retention and dryness by lowering volume and thickness. The net result is an insulation boost in a garment that remains light and thin. Always designing with a focus on low volume, Assos masters the equation: low volume+less bulk=more freedom of movement. Assos includes blasenSchutz into the design. This design features an inserted panel of windblock fabric between the crotch and abdomen panel of the knicker. This adds a layer of frontal protection to a very sensitive area from crisp cold air temps. All of these panels are all stitched together using over-locking seams provide a tight bond between panels and add elasticity.
At the very core of the Habu lies the long ride oriented, 8mm Assos Mille s7 seat pad. The pad's structure and support come from the 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 direct contact to the bicycle.
The uppers of the Habutightsmille_s7 have 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. The Y7 carriers offer the support you need while feeling like they are not even there. The back section also carries a hidden rear pocket for valuables storage.
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. Assos chose the latter and it works like a charm.
