ASSOS MEN'S ARM/KNEE/LEG WARMERS
During transitional weather seasons, the day's temperatures are too unpredictable to dedicate your ride to bib tights. Though your joints need to be warm, wrapping your legs in heavy fabrics is a one way ticket to bonktown. Really, all that you need is a bit more coverage around your knees, and the Assos kneeUno_s7 Knee Warmers are the 'just right' answer.
Assos employed its signature fabrics and engineering for the kneeUno_s7 warmers, only with a simpler approach. Instead of gripper elastics and thick fabrics, Assos has gone with a simple dual-panel design that integrates the knee warmers seamlessly under your shorts, sans gripper on either end. From the front, the warmers look like a single piece of material, but from the back, you'll notice that the articulated knee panel eliminates seams over the knee and sides of the legs. This helps avoid chafing by moving the seams to a more convenient area. The Assos fabrics used for the kneeUno_s7 knee warmers are heavy enough to protect you, but they're also light enough to be stuffed comfortably in your jersey pocket if you get too warm on your ride.
The kneeUno_s7 falls into a new line of Assos engineering, ASSOSoires UNO -- an extension of the venerable UNO line. Basically, the pathway of engineering has been simplified to approach the same end. So, Assos can provide the same superior quality for the more 'everyday' cyclist. Better yet, you'll find that the knee warmers still follow the Assos Layering System and ClimaRange -- in this case, ClimaRange 4. This means that the recommended temperature range falls roughly between 60 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit when worn alone. However, they can be added accordingly within the system to boost the ClimaRange of your other Assos pieces.

The Assos kneeUno_s7 Knee Warmers are available in the color Black Volkanga and in the size 0 (X-Small to Small), I (Medium to Large), and II (X-Large to XX-Large).
