Assos LlPompadourS5 Tights Womens

The phrase don't compromise has long been the mantra employed by Assos for its technical cycling apparel. Sure, it sounds like a sound principle to adhere to, but it takes a detailed inspection of the product at hand to really see what the Swiss designers mean by this. Take the new LL. pompaDours5 Women's Tights, for example, as they were constructed to specifically fit, support, and protect the female body in cold winter weather riding conditions. And while many apparel manufactures claim that their products possess these same characteristics, no one but Assos is as obsessed with refining its items until absolute perfection is achieved. The platform for the LL. pompaDour comes from Assos' LL. uma that it replaces, but the pattern has been revised to mimic the LL. 716's twinDeck foiling technology. What this means is that instead of using a bulky and inflexible membrane for the thigh and knee panels, Assos employed a specific double layer construction — Assos' RXQ fleece backed material provides next to skin comfort and light insulation, with a layer of its proprietary Stratagon ultralight membrane keeping you shielded from the cold, wind, and light rain. Together, this dual layer system provides total freedom of knee movement, while still providing exceptional comfort and protection from the elements. The LL. pompaDour was constructed using four panels, six different textiles, and 10 components. For the majority of the paneling, Assos' RXplus fabric was used. This is a heavier weight, refined version of the former Roubaix fabric, meaning that it provides both an increase in abrasion resistance and insulation. The real beauty of this material is that while it effectively shields and insulates the body, it still delivers that legendary, silky Assos touch to the skin. The second brand new fabric to emerge from the ASSOS Textile Lab is known as stratagonUltra. This ultrathin material was strategically placed due to its elastic properties, as its flexible composition works to move with you in the saddle and block wind and cold air from reaching sensitive skin underneath. Combining what Assos calls its Advanced Ergonomic Pattern Design AEPD racing cut with its cycling specific body mapping pattern design, the LL. pompaDour also benefits from the most thought out design process in the business. Assos is the first to tell you that high end materials mean nothing if the cut isn't right. That's why it's spent a significant amount of time on two points of study — how the body is shaped, and how it changes throughout the movements of cycling. Accordingly, the AEPD cut is made for the shape of cycling, not standing just a little something to remember when you try it on. With the LL. pompaDour, the cut greets the contours of your body and adds a slight compression to aid in muscle recovery and stabilization. For the uppers, Assos built the LL. pompaDour using its patented ABC M bib closure mechanism. This was first introduced on the Lady T. FI 13 shorts, and it's essentially an adjustable, female specific monobib construction. This closure provides three different closing positions ranging from tight to loose. Assos recommends the tight position for more support while racing, with the loose setting providing a bit more flexibility and movement in the torso region. Adjustments are made using the new carbon buckle at the front. Assos rounded out the system using its durable and lightweight ultrasonic welding technology for attaching the buckle to the fabric. The final LL. pompaDour touch point advancement is the chamois. The tights use the legendary Assos custom elastic interface insert, high density memory foam s5 chamois. With years of field analysis, Assos has refined the Lady s5 insert to the point of perfection. The female specific Lady s5 insert is more breathable that previous versions and is specifically designed for the female anatomy. Overall, Assos' incorporation of proprietary technology has created a chamois that's painstakingly designed to provide the best in anatomical fit and comfort. The Assos LL. pompaDours5 Tights Women's are available in five sizes from X Small to X Large and in the color Black Volkanga.
