As­sos Habutightsmille S7 £170

Cycling Weekly - - TECH GROUPTEST -

These are in­tended for early win­ter but we’ve found the in­su­la­tion on of­fer al­lowed us to keep wear­ing them through last win­ter in tem­per­a­tures as low as 2°C.

The Swiss brand’s RX Medium fab­ric is in­su­lat­ing, high per­form­ing and fast dry­ing. As­sos’s Mille range has a slightly more re­laxed fit, though the fab­ric still hugs the legs from an­kle to thigh and the fleece lin­ing is very cush­ioned against the skin. The an­kle is just a sim­ple bit of folded fab­ric stitched, which avoids the lumps and bumps of a zip. The bibs are the flat, stretchy ma­te­rial used on all As­sos shorts and tights: it’s sup­port­ive and doesn’t dig into your shoul­ders.

Down be­low you get the S7 pad which fea­tures three lay­ers of foam and the ‘gold­en­gate’, whereby the pad in the mid­dle is sep­a­rate from the tight and al­lows some move­ment. The re­sult is an amaz­ingly com­fort­able chamois. Over­all a great pair of tights.
