Assos hK.607 Ladies S5 FI Lady Half Knicker Cycling Tights
hK.607 Ladies Half Knicker Cycling Tights is part of the new ASSOS_S5 Generation of knickers and tights for cooler conditions. Providing total comfort and fulfilling your expectation of excellence can be achieved only through a design process that unifies all the elements of the product and not through the use of any individual component.
During the development of the Ladies Half Knicker Cycling Tights, we defined our goals, which included warmth, comfort and function. Because ASSOS makes no compromises in its biking apparel, manufacturing the hK.607 Lady required seven panels, three fabrics, twelve components and meticulous attention to detail. The special design of the abdominal and hip areas prevents pressure on sensitive tummies, providing superior comfort.
The majority of the material used to make the hLadies Half Knicker Cycling Tights is an improved version of our legendary RX fabric, which has a pleasantly warm and soft inner side. The version used here is a little more robust and is combined with our brand new RXQ fabric, whose inner structure incorporates 3D air channels for better thermal properties. But we didn’t stop with new fabrics: we developed a new four-track panel that is designed to make the most of the advantages offered by these new materials.
Composition: PA 70%, EA 16%, PES 14%
Wear the hK.607 Lady as warm knickers in spring and autumn.
hK.607 Lady is ideal in combination with intermediateEvo lady.
The hK.607 Lady is tailored to perfectly fit the female body when tucked in the cycling position. A particularly ingenious detail of our knickers is the knee: pleating in this critical area is minimized, reducing friction and skin irritation that can be caused by cycling movements.
Important: For maximum comfort and enjoyment, you must wear your correct size. The hK.607 Lady works only if it fits perfectly in the cycling position. Shorts, knickers and tights must fit skin-tight, as crease-free as possible. If in doubt, please select one size smaller.
The brand new RXQ fabric is based on the legendary ASSOS RX fabric. RXQ is a breathable material with low volume and 4-way stretch. It provides a comfortable fit and excellent thermal properties in cold weather conditions. The uniqueness of RXQ lies in its roughened, fleece-like inner lining that creates 3D air channels, leaving a micro air cushion close to your body. Air is an insulator and when a material with an air-trapping structure surrounds your body, you enjoy excellent thermal properties combined with low volume. RXQ offers an improved push-pull effect and keeps your body temperature stable. The surface texture also improves air circulation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Claire2326 Great product
I have bought 2 pairs of these whilst in the sale as they are a little on the expensive side especially for someone from Yorkshire with deep pockets and short arms. However, if they match up to other Assos clothing they will last years so better value overall than cheaper brands. My other Assos kit also washes very well.
I have worn them out in 1-3 degrees windy drizzzle and been just on the verge of cold although I have a reputation for not feeling the cold so someone else may not find them warm enough in such cold conditions.
The fit is excellent, I like the lower waistline at the front however, if you are one for tucking a shirt in in the depths of winter this may be a little difficult unless it's a long top. I'm a small size 6 and find it difficult to find clothing small enough but the XS is just right.
The padding does feel big off the bike but on the bike it is superbly comfortable on long rides. If my other Assos shorts are anything to go by they do bed in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nic273 THE BEST - I recommend these pants without restraint
They are the best pants of all firms producing similar for pad quality and material. I wore two years every week and not destroyed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Really Disappointing
Wore these twice last week cycling in France, approx 185 miles done wearing them. The seat has pilled really badly. The pad is too wide between your legs and is very uncomfortable and has caused bad rubbing on my thighs. I also didnt like the cut of the front of the waistband...very low.
