Description

We're all for better-engineered, exceptionally-designed solutions. Especially for pieces of apparel that have gone relatively unchanged for decades. Knee warmers -- we're lookin' at you. Think of it, have you ever known of a knee warmer that hasn't been a lightly-tapered tube of fleecy fabric with grippers on both ends? It seems as if no one has ever put any thought into fit. Well, if you're fed up with banality, the Assos kneeWarmer_S7 feature a design that at least deserves a nose wrinkle.

Upon first site, you'll notice that the kneeWarmer_S7 have no grippers. Instead, both hems simply double-over the RXQ fabric. Reason being is that they use a contoured shape design that eliminates the need for grippers. And where other warmers are just rudimentary cones of fabric, Assos constructs its kneeWarmers with two different fabrics over multiple panels. The paneling is designed to move seams away from the areas where chafing typically occurs -- like at the back of the knee. This also means, that by default, the warmers are designed specifically for your left leg and right leg to achieve the perfect individual fit.

It's worth noting that Assos doesn't design its cycling apparel for walking. Instead, each piece comes to life only through the movements and positions of cycling. Accordingly, these warmers are going to look like they don't fit when you're standing up straight, but give them that precious 88.3 degree bend, and the wrinkles will quickly disappear. In fact, at the top of your pedal stroke, where your knees are towards the chest, the warmers move with your motion without giving the slightest tug.

To give you an idea of what temperature range the kneeWarmer_S7 falls into, Assos classified it as part of its ClimaRange 4. In English, this means fall, or even more specifically, 59 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit. However, within the Assos Layering System, you can formulaically add it to other ClimaRange ensembles to increase their weather-resistance.

The Assos kneeWarmer_S7 Knee Warmers are available in the color Black Volkanga and in the sizes 0 (X-Small to Small), I (Medium to Large), and II (X-Large to XX-Large). Please note that this is a unisex item.

Here's what others have to say...

dont panic....

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:True to size

placement is critical ...the bottom edge should be approx 3-4 inches below the bottom of your knee cap/about mid calf .. or the panelling should conform behind the knee as designed. it stayed and "disappeared" .featherwt! i guess i got what i paid for!

Great knee warmers

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

was a bit concerned about the fact these have no grippers, but they work great. can barely notice they are there. At first i was wearing these a bit too high (just below the knee) and they bunched up, but once i adjusted to about mid calf - these did not move at all and were super comfortable. highly recommend. fyi - i have size II and I'm 6'3" with a 33.5" inseam and as mentioned above these sit about mid calf and about half way up my thigh. with no thigh gripper these do not pull at all on the skin of my thigh like i have had happen with other knee warmers with grippers.

agree with yoda. At first i was disappointed coz it dropped/slipped out under my bibshort then i readjusted it with the bottom edge approximately 3-4 inches below the bottom of the kneecap( as the panelling fits behind the knee) and never readjusted even after my 50- mile hilly ride! featherweight and not constricting . size 0 5'7" 140# fits like a glove !

Warmer than you think

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I have a pair of Rapha knee warmers that lasted over 5 yrs (I got them from CC when they still carried raphia); They needed replacement. While the Rapha were typical shiny lycra material the assos is more of a flat fabric look. They are also much warmer material. In fact, I realized these were good for much colder fall days and got hot on 60 deg rides. Not having a gripper at the top felt strange at first; I thought they would continue to drop/sag but they never did. In fact they disappeared under my bibs. Perfect fit and stretch material. The labels are in the back and at first I thought they needed to be cut but they go under your bib. Excellent material and fit/finish and I suspect will last many seasons.
