The iconic Bonkas, the successor of the LL.bonkaTights S7, ensure no amount of weather deters your winter program.
Engineered for the coldest, harshest winter conditions
The Bonka has evolved, now constructed with an arsenal of proven winter-proof textiles and CENTO EVO insert to deliver unmatched levels of insulation, protection, and long-distance comfort.
With double-layer protection throughout, these stand in as Assos' most protective bib tights. For the most demanding winter conditions that relegate all but the most dedicated riders back indoors, the Bonkas are purpose-built to thrive. Assos began with the same highly insulating brushed-back RX Heavy that’s used in the Winter Bib Tights, but they applied a double-layer construction with acclaimed 2L Stratagon Ultra around the knees, hips, and thighs for added protection, ensuring the front half of your lower body remains fully protected from sleet, road spray, biting winds, and low temperatures. As with the Winter Bib Tights, RX Light makes up the backs of the legs for added breathability in this high-flex region.
The fit of the Bonkas falls into the racingFit category, which means they’re moderately compressive with their double-layer design. The fabric panels flex with each pedal stroke, as they’re both pre-shaped and sewn to fully wrap and support the upper leg muscles, knees, and calves while in motion. The insert is the Assos CENTO EVO, featuring 10mm of plush memory foam for dependable comfort on every ride.

The CENTO elastic interface insert, evolved. New black colorway, and the proven 10mm of memory foam, this insert is nestled at the intersection between comfort and performance. 3D waffle:
A patented, three-layer perforated foam that increases breathability and eliminates excess weight. goldenGate:
A patented technology that interrupts the stitching along both of the insert's side panels, allowing a more three-dimensional freedom of movement in this sensitive, rotational area. kukuPenthouse:
A soft, brushed microfiber layer added to the front part of the insert that supports the male anatomy, eliminates pressure, and increases ventilation. Y7 Frame Carrier Bib Tech:
Wide, flexible bib straps converge at the upper back in a Y-shape design, resulting in a flat, stable structure that disappears between the shoulder blades. Stabilizator V3:
