UMA GT Half Tights Summer No Insert
If you're looking for some tights that are ideal for activities off the bike with that unmistakable Assos quality or something you can strip off, leaving you with cycling shorts underneath when temperatures warm up, we'd suggest the UMA GT Half Tights Summer No Insert. As for tights that are built for summer use, it offers a little more protection against the sun's harsh rays or some extra warmth on those cooler starts or windy days. This lightweight and breathable tight has a form-fitting ‘bowling pin’ cut at the rear of the lower leg for a sculpted fit and its choice of materials will keep you cooler and drier than you'd think. We've come to expect these niceties from Assos, after all, it was the first company to bring a lycra cycling short to market, however, we never take it for granted. It's also important to note that these half tights do lack bib straps which make stopping for nature breaks a little easier.
Assos is known by its self-appointed name "the shorts company," and over its 40 years of experience, it has construction and materials dialed. The fabric utilized on this tight is known as Type.439 Diadema which Assos created in collaboration with its fabric suppliers to specifically meet its rigid demands for performance, comfort, and durability. The weave has two different rates of 4-way stretch which requires expertise to craft into tights. This compressive material is arranged anatomically so your body fits into the tights, rather than the other way around. While the panels do their jobs supporting and compressing muscles helping to reduce fatigue and encouraging recovery, a wrap-knit fabric known as aeroFit, is utilized in a double layer for the legs and abdominal area as it has a specific structure that aids in ventilation while gently contouring to your shape and prevents any unrestricted movement while reaching for the bars or climbing out of the saddle.
