Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These gloves are very good from the mid 50s down to freezing in dry climates and upper 30s/low 40s if you're in a humid cold. Extremely warm for how light they are and as windproof as they claim. With a liner they can go even colder than advertised, but as soon as it rains they stop being warm. To be fair, their description does not mention any water resistance. I've put them through snowy winter rides in the Rockies, the Appalachians and now the cold rains of the southeast. They'll hold up to a good snow for an hour or so until it starts to soak in, but again they immediately lose their insulating properties. I also wish that it had a soft fabric over the back of the thumb for wiping snot on hard, cold rides. The current material will chew up your nose a bit. Overall a great set of gloves for what they are designed to do, but if I think I might get caught in a cold rain I'm reaching for different set of gloves.

Absolutely! These were my introduction to the Assos line. Like many cyclists I have more arm warmers than I'll every need. My wife got these for me as a gift, and I've never used another set since. The materials are amazing, the fit is perfect, they cover a broader temperature range, and they are the only warmers that I've never had to adjust during a 5-6 hour ride. I don't care if I'm the only guy on the team not wearing the matching team kit warmers. I'm sticking with my Assos.

Like most people, I was quite put off by the price of most everything in the Assos line. I tried numerous other long sleeve jerseys from other companies but always found that the fit was off, it didn't breath well, or didn't really offer any warmth. I enjoy my long, cold, winter training rides and needed a top that could cover a pretty broad range of temperatures throughout the day and be comfortable the whole time. In my opinion the Tiburu is the perfect top. I've done long easy rides, threshold climbing days, cold weather group sufferfests and everything in between. I've never had one complaint. It's my go to jersey when the weather gets below 60 and with a light rain/wind jacket I've ridden in snowstorms in the mountains. When finances allow I'll be getting another one because I'm getting sick of hand washing it every day so it's ready for the next ride.
