ASSOS WOMEN'S TIGHTS/KNICKERS
Assos offers three versions of its 607 tights: knickers (hK), bib tights (LL), and these hL.607 Lady_S5 Tights. The hL designation stands for tights. We offer all three. Choose which suits you best.
All three share the same sophisticated materials and anatomic panel pattern. Assos calls this platform 607, and it's been design specifically for women. 607 means that the material mix starts with the exclusive RX fabric -- a brushed, stretch fleece that's been placed on the inside of the legs because of its low-volume, warmth, and durable consistency. Assos placed RXQ stretch fleece on the outsides of the legs because it has an enhanced ability to stretch, and a channeled structure on the inside of the material traps warm air and moves sweat vapor away from the body. The women's AEPD paneled-construction is new, and is designed to provide the perfect, anatomic cycling fit. This is achieved by minimizing bunching and slippage, and by avoiding the placement of seams in places that chafe the body -- like directly over or behind the knee.
At the top of the tights is a two-part waistband. The front part is a wide, soft, and elastic-free Lycra panel that hugs without squeezing or creating pressure points -- think of an advanced version of a yoga band. For a secure fit, the back part of the panel is a wide, soft gripper that holds the waist in place.
The chamois is the same one found in Assos' F1.Lady bottoms. In other words, it's the S5 pad. It's seamless on top, with a waffle design that wicks and stretches. Assos designed it with a variable thickness padding that places more cushion underneath your sit-bones and less everywhere else.
The Assos hL.607 Lady_S5 Tights are available in the color Black Volkanga and in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large. They're part of Assos' climaRange 4, which means that they're suitable for temperatures ranging from 48 to 61 degrees Fahrenheit (8 to 16 degree Celsius).
