Although leg warmers cannot replace a full length tight, the new Assos legWarmer_evo7 is a small piece that has many uses and will protect you on cool bike rides. Not only do these warmers allow you to ride more comfortable in fall, spring and even early winter, they can also be packed away in a jersey pocket if the conditions change.
Based on previous Assos’ models, the new design has an improved cut, fit and performance. The Assos leg warmers use medium RX fabric that provide a great balance of warmth and fit. The fleece like inner protects you from the cold while a water resistant (WR) treatment repels road spray and rain to keep you riding longer. The warmers are left and right leg specific helping them fit snug and comfortable. Assos placed a small label on the warmers to help you make sure you are wearing them properly.
Some of the advancements based off older renditions include an anatomic cut to the rear of the leg that means you have freedom of movement throughout the pedal stroke without unwanted slipping. Another plus is the use of RX light elastic fabric that aids in breathability. Another great feature that has already been featured on older versions of the leg warmer is a curved top that shapes to your hip and is held in position by your cycling shorts. This design allows for more protection higher on your leg with more comfort. Lastly, the Assos legWarmer_evo7 features two asymmetric reflectors on the back of the legs to help you remain safe while riding in low light conditions.
