The legWarmer_evo7 is part of Assos' new generation of evo7 warmers. Though often overlooked, it is the small pieces of your kit that have the most uses helping you ride all year round.
These new leg warmers give you the flexibility of maximum warmth with minimal weight, perfect for cold mornings, protection from wind chill on those long descents, or the cooler days of autumn, spring and even early winter. They can simply be taken off and placed in a jersey pocket when not needed.
An evolution of the previous model, Assos have improved the cut, fit and performance, using technologies and experience gained from other products in their previous ranges.
RX Medium fabric
Using the medium weight version of their RX material means that these leg warmers strike a balance between warmth and fit. The fleece-like material keeps your legs warm on those autumn, spring and early winter days without being too bulky. On top of that, to protect you from those autumn and spring showers, Assos have used their WR (Water Resistant) treatment on all the material to shed water and keep you riding longer.
Taking the experience gained from their tights Assos added the same anatomic cut to the rear of the leg. This means that you have freedom of movement without the leg warmer slipping. An added plus is the elastic material used (RX Light) increases breathability.
Assos have always believed in breaking with tradition but sticking with what works. Taking the unconventional curved top that they used in the previous version, they have kept it. The curved top fits perfectly to the shape of your hip, held in place by your short, meaning not only added protection higher up, but greater comfort.
Left and right specific
It seems obvious, but the left and right legs are different, so for the best fit Assos use a simple labelling system to make sure you know which leg warmer fits which leg.
Riding in colder weather normally means riding when the visibility is not so good. So for added visibility Assos have placed two asymmetrical reflectors on the back of the legs.
