The Assos tiburuKnickersMille_s7 are essentially perfect Fall/Spring knickers. Bold statement but true. 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 use makes these Tiburu knickers one of the most versatile garments in the Assos 3 season range. We do not use superlatives often, but this piece is pure perfection for a spring, fall and sometimes winter product. Simply a must for any serious year-round cyclist.
The dominant fabric is the Assos developed RX Medium fleece, which has been treated with their WR (water resistant) treatment on main side and knee panels that cover essential muscle and connective tissue. A unique 3D air-channel structure creates a next-to-body micro air cushion resulting in increased heat retention and dryness by lowering volume and thickness. In short, you get the insulation boost but the garment remains light and thin. There was a focus on low volume with this garment, as we all know that low volume+less bulk=more freedom of movement. The Tiburu is Assos first knicker to include blasenSchutz into the design. Used on their high-end range of tights, this design features an inserted panel of Stratagon 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 "heart" of the Tiburu S7 lies the Assos Mille_S7 insert 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 upper tiburuKnickersMille_s7 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. The Y7 carriers offer the support you need while feeling like they are not even there.
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.
