Assos Habutightsmille S7 £170
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.
