The Assos UMA GT Half Tights Summer has been introduced as a result of feedback from Assos sales network, where demand has called for a lightweight, highly breathable summer tight so you can have a bit more protection against the harshest sun on the hottest days. Taking the technology and fabrics used on Assos UMA shorts as the basis, Assos engineers have used their tried-and-tested leg design to create a summer tight that give you opulent comfort without compromising freedom of movement. This comes from the form-fitting ‘bowling pin’ cut at the rear of the lower leg and the deployment of Assos’ reworked Long Distance body-mapping design.
For increased comfort we have used a combination of ASSOS proven fabrics: Assos decadent Type.439 Diadema features in the top part of these, giving you comfort and compression in equal measures; while for increased breathability in the legs Assos fabric engineers have employed Assos’ Push Pull fabric. Coming with a little more stretch, it generates freedom to pedal, which is perfect on those hot summer rides.
At the core of these tights is the sophisticated UMA insert that’ll provide excellent comfort on long rides. It comes with a slightly narrower cut at the front for ultra comfortable pedaling. From the morning spin to the coffee ride, the all-day adventure to the weekend group ride, these tights deliver sartorial approval, UV protection and superior saddle comfort.
Long Distance: A body-mapped performance fit that is a little less aggressive than our Aero Racing line. The best of both worlds, where wearability and speed converge. Female-specific cut: Anatomically mapped fit. Ensures the garment works in harmony with a woman’s body on the bike.
Type.439 Diadema: To improve the performance as well as increase the durability of our products, we have created these shorts using our type.439 Diadema, a specific textile design created in collaboration with Assos fabric suppliers to meet the demands of performance, comfort and wear and tear. Unique within the industry, the weave has two different rates of 4-way stretch, which requires expertise to maximize the elasticity of the fabric on the cutting table. UPF 50+.
Aerofit: Used on the waist, the ASSOS proprietary Aerofit fabric is an incredibly comfortable and soft warp-knit with a specific structure that works in favor of ventilation.
Push Pull tex: Deployed on the rear of the legs, this comfortable and soft warp knit fabric adds breathability and contouring while providing the maximum comfort for unrestricted movement in or out of the saddle.
UMA insert: Cut narrower at the front to reduce bulk and increase comfort, this reworked insert has been specifically constructed for female riders but employs all of the standard ASSOS S7 generation technology, featuring 8 mm of memory foam for increased comfort.
The ASSOS goldenGate technology within the insert interrupts the sewing in the area between the legs to create three-dimensional freedom of movement in the most sensitive area. This design has fewer seams, which results in reduced friction. This is a patent-protected feature that is central to our S7 generation of shorts.
The ASSOS waffle was introduced on the S5 and has been further perfected for S7. Instead of using monolithic linear foam as the middle layer, S7 is equipped with a perforated foam resulting in a reduction in weight and increased breathability.
odorControl: We’ve treated these summer tights with a highly durable antibacterial treatment.
