My first knickers, my tights can be a big too warm on long spring rides that start cool but warm up as the day progresses. I became a big fan of Assos a few years ago and found them to be the most comfortable and best performing shorts I've ever owned, so when these knickers were on sale at a great price I jumped on it. I've only used them once so far but they performed exactly as I'd expect from Assos. Looking forward to more cool spring riding in these.
I just finished a 70-mile ride wearing these knickers (3/9/23, temps from 34 to 50 F or so). Gotta say these are working for me in a big way for winter-spring riding in SE WA state. The knickers have good compression and are well crated. I like the suspender design - just very workable. The interior leg fabric is good and provides ensures warmth - for me - on days in the mid-30's to 50's. Lastly, the cuffs are pronounced and have a compressive kick. Lastly, these were really reasonable. Given my positive experience with Assos knickers (2 other long-lasting pair), this was a no-brainer.
The first time I put these Assos knickers on they felt great. When I rode with then they were the real deal. I've
rode with them dozens of times no complaints. I would highly recommend them.
These are very good but the floating pad seems like a gimmick and not necessary. I prefer knickers and tall socks over full length tights until the temps fall below about 30 and these fit the bill. Good weight and great feel. Canï¿½t comment on durability yet. Assos is always expensive so watch for the sales.
