Assos LL.Mille s7 Tights
The LL.Mille s7 Bib Tight represents a baseline for Assos designers to create their 3 season line of bib tights and winter wear bottoms. What you get is a garment that has many of the features and performance of the upper range of Assos tights with an eye on value. From anatomically fitted patterns that are joined using flat seams and an overlock stitch, to high quality fabrics and seat pad, the LL.Mille rivals top offerings from any other manufacturer.
The many panels that create legs of the LL.Mille bib tights feature RX Heavy fleece. This fabric has a compacted waffled texture for moisture control, warmth and comfort. This magical fabric is doubled over on the thighs and knees while the back of the legs receive only one layer. The combination of single and double fleece in one garment results in insulation where you need it and a thinner layer for heat expulsion and less volume for an improved freedom of movement. Further protection from the elements is provided by WR weather resistant coating. This treatment repels the wet and wind while allowing proper ventilation keeping you warm and dry.
Seat pad duty is taken care of with the Assos Mille s7 insert. This elastic 8mm pad features GoldenGate technology, which means it is only attached at the front and rear of the insert, allowing the un-stitched center to free float and act as if it were a natural extension of your body. The padding and body support comes from the Assos designed memoryFoam which features a shock absorbing, closed cell foam construction. The memoryFoam padding returns to its original form as soon as pressure is released providing a reset for your next adjustment on the saddle. Additionally, padding on each side of the prostate area with a void in the center helps create pressure release in a very sensitive area. The top layer of the chamois has waffled pattern design that dissipates heat by creating proper air flow. Assos uses an anti-bacterial thread on the top sheet to help keep the top pad clean and sanitary.
The uppers of the LL. Mille feature Assos's clever 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. The magic of the Y7 is the creation of support while feeling like a second skin.
Following Assos the AEPD standard, all of these lower panels are anatomically cut for a perfected cycling fit. This means the bib tights fit perfectly and precisely when your assume the cycling position. Vented and perforated back panel is comfortable yet offer plenty of support. All exterior seams get hemmed and capped to prevent fraying. All in all another great garment from Assos and a strong value to boot.

These are the winter tights I've been waiting for all these years. If you're doing super high-intensity rides in the winter, then get the bonka tights. They'll work better for you. But if, like me, you're doing some combination of commuting and base miles, you'll never find a better pair of tights than these. Comfortable, water-resistant, and warm all day down to 15 - 20 degrees F. Quality and durability are excellent, which is the norm for Assos. And the price is extremely reasonable, which breaks some new ground for the Swiss.
Pros Comfort, Durability
