Now autumn has arrived and winter is approaching Assos has released some videos to explain how to get the best out of its new clothing collection.

Exclusive Swiss cycling apparel manufacturer Assos has long been seen as an industry leader when it comes to top end cycling clothing.

With autumn here and winter on the horizon Assos has released two videos detailing its latest lower leg garments.

LL.Habu tights

The LL. Habu tights are Assos’s new bib tights for the early winter period. The tights are based on Assos’s S7 platform and are available with or without an insert. Choosing the non-insert option gives you the option to stick to your trusty bib shorts or as Assos says is ideal for other non cycling activities.

The tights have added wind protectioin at the groin area and have benefitted from water-repellent treatment. So when paired with an appropriate jacket or shell should keep you suitably warm throughout the winter.

TK.Tiburu Knickers

The knickers are developed from Assos’s Tiburu shorts. They are designed to fit the clothing lacuna that occurs when it is too hot for full winter tights but too cold for just shorts and leg warmers. Assos says the knickers will keep you warm without the added weight and volume of full length tights.

If the tights and knickers live up to Assos’s esteemed reputation they will be great additions to your close-season wardrobe.
