  • A huge amount of thought and design has gone into the fit of these leg-warmers. Some leg-warmers feature a single-piece tube construction — not these from Assos though, which actually use five pieces; three different fabrics and a side-specific construction to ensure perfect contouring around the muscles and knee joint.

    The result is that the fit is superb and these leg-warmers were the most comfortable on test, with no bunching or loose fabric. Unlike other designs, there is no zip closure around the ankle, with these 
leg-warmers instead relying on the high quality stretch of the RXQ fabric.

    An interesting and useful design feature is the hip flaps, which extend the warmth offered by the leg-warmers up the outer part of the thigh. Assos’s S7 may not feature the limited water repellency of the Castelli NanoFlex, but there is nothing to stop you applying a coating of your own.

    With regards to sizing, Assos offers three sizes (0, I and II). For reference I am 6’1″, 69kg and a size I fitted perfectly. They are certainly not the cheapest I have tested, but out of all the warmers I have used and had at my disposal, the pair I would instinctively go back to and pick up was these from Assos.

    These are without question the best leg warmer I have used. But. £74.99 is very expensive.
