It’s Magic! The new generation of the Assos long legged bib tights for cold climatic riding conditions, featuring StrataGon AirBlock membrane fabric inserts where you need it.
ALS Climarange: Ideally suited for Winter riding
ALS Tips (Assos Layering System) Without insert you choose to wear your regular Assos shorts underneath or when temperatures drop to the extreme, try to wear your Assos knicker as a first layer and you are ready for Winter Plus riding.
Engineering: Technically speaking it is based on the LL.607 but in addition incorporates our brand new StratagonLight family of AirBlock textiles, strategically placed placed where your body seeks windpenetration protection in order to maintain temperature stable. And let’s remember, just like the LL.607 also the LL716 is constructed on the “Pattern frame” of the T.607. Hence, at its heart it’s a high performance cycling short adapted to allow riding in cold, weather conditions. Usually and normally everywhere else, long legged winter tights are pattern designed with a much different, more loose baggy approach. Not this one! LL.716 is part of the new generation Campionissimo line. New pattern design, newly developed textiles, improved ingredients and a refined assembly process.
The LL.716 is built out of 12 panels, using 5 different textiles 29 components carefully engineered, defined and applied. The main textile used is a heavier (compared to the LL.607) version of our legendary RX microfiber innersurface brushed, fleece type insulator fabric. Now the big difference compared to the LL.607 is the strategic use of the brand new StratagonUltra fabric. This textile is featured on upper thigh, Knee and “Blasenzone” and blocks wind-penetration. Not only did we redefine the fabrics, we also redefined a new 4 panel cut perfectly calibrated to textiles used.
Key features and benefits of the textiles:
Campionissimo AEPD Racing Cut/Regular Fit. Clicks onto your body when in the tuck position. Anatomically ergonomic. Total freedom of movement. No excess material means most effective body temperature control and total comfort when riding.
RX/Plus- a heavier, stronger version of the legendary “roubaix” fabric.
StratagonUltra pattern inserts over thigh and knees to provide ultimate AirBlock properties where you need it most
MonoBib zipper construction provides additional torso protection and a better more stable fit when on the bike.
Your strongest, most crucial muscle of your cycling legs is actually in your buttock zone. The LL.716 features an insulating double layer to enhance and protect your power machine even more.
StratagonLight protection insert over genital area. Why? Protects your... from chilly winds, hence reduces the need of urinating.
Magic, better performing
The main textile used are both brand new development of the Assos textile Lab. Main construction is made of RX/Plus. A new and “heavier” development of the former “Roubaix” fabric. Hence increased insulation and abrasion resistancy but nevertheless providing that legendary next to skin “silktouch” comfort feeling. The second main fabric used to stop wind and cold from penetrating on the delicate, crucial body parts is the brand new, Assos developed, not commercially available StratagonUltra. Really amazing. Feel how ultrathin, light, resistant it is.
AEPD: Tailored to fit the body in the cycling position. Created to “click on” to your body in the tuck position. Follows your movement without restriction. The “especially tricky” part of long legged cycling performance tights is the ‘kneezone’ and when you need to apply a membrane textile in that particular zone, the task becomes extremely challenging. The result is Magic. Put on an outgoing AriBlock LL851 and imitate the rotation movement on the bike. Then put on the new LL.716 and repeat the exercise- words cannot express the comfort, we let you be the judge. Total comfort and high performance attitude is achieved by the total result of its construction and not because of a single application. Assos know how and expertise. Touch, Ride, Believe
