The main fabric used in the construction of these knickers is an Assos specific material, Type.439. It is a smooth fabric that offers moderate compression on your legs without being uncomfortable. This moderate compression prevents premature fatigue in the muscles, supporting them against vibrations caused from the hum of the road. The fabric is lightweight, with a stretch that works with your body to give the knickers a second-skin feeling. It is finished with an Assos iceColor application which reduces the surface temperature of the fabric, helping them to stay cool and fresh against your skin. The Assos Lady’s HK.laalalaiKnickers_s7 use a regular fit for a comfortable feel, with gentle compression from a high-cut, wide waistband to keep them securely in place as you move in the saddle and a new pattern at the lower leg for a better fit and feel.
Real performance of any bib short, short, or knicker, ultimately lies in the chamois. This is the most obvious, and important place, for a garment to impress. And these knickers do not disappoint! With 8mm thick Memory Foam, you can pedal without gaps between your body and the chamois, thanks to the Memory Foam’s impressive, lightning fast return properties. Even further, the chamois uses a free floating Golden Gate design that attaches the chamois to the shorts at the front and the rear, leaving the sides free so the chamois can move with your body instead of against it. No more friction between your skin and the chamois as you pedal, eliminating uncomfortable chaffing and irritation. The chamois also uses superAir and waffle construction on the first two layers of the insert. This construction allows for negative space that not only allows for a lighter weight, but it also increases the chamois’ breathability and surface area so it wicks and evaporates moisture faster for a drier, fresher ride.
The HK.laalalaiKnickers_s7 for women are available in five sizes, X-Small – X-Large. They are offered in the color Block Black.
