With the introduction of the LL.uno_s5, we are addressing the need of the racing cyclist who desires a less complex, lighter and more essential product approach.
Composition: 80%PA – 14%EA – 6%PES
How To se It? The LL.Uno is available in two versions: with or without the s5 insert. With the insert, you use your LL.Uno as the only layer, directly on your skin. Without the insert, you wear them over your shorts or knickers and the tights become more versatile as you can also use them for other outdoor activities.
ALS Tips: When temperatures drop, you can extend the LL.uno's mission range by wearing a kneewarmer or legwarmer underneath.
The Construction: The LL.Uno is based on the ultimate long-leg pattern platform of its big brother, the LL.607. Also, in terms of material quality, it uses the same high quality RX fleecy type fabric all over. What we have eliminated is the front panel airBlock insert on the abdomen, replacing it with a more robust RX variant. No foot stirrups, no RXQ textile and less fabric volume on the rear panel make this garment a lighter, more essential proposition without sacrificing performance or quality.
Campionissimo AEPD: Tailored to fit your body when tucked in the cycling position. Clicks on, then follows your movements without restriction. When you stand upright, the bibs will pull and feel "all wrong." But this is correct! Bend forward, assume the cycling position and you will feel the garment fall into place, relieving the pressure on your shoulders. Close your eyes, inhale and feel it. Now you are experiencing the legendary ASSOS cut, a science perfected over 30 years.
Caution: Shorts, tights and knickers must contour to your body like a second skin, as wrinkle-free as possible, which allows the textiles to ensure effective body temperature control and the garment to ensure total comfort when riding. The LL.uno has been engineered to do just this, but only if you choose your correct size.
Conclusion: Sometimes less is more. Sometimes less is enough. If you are a racing cyclist who does a lot of winter riding, the LL.uno gives you good legs that cover the majority of winter riding conditions. But you could complete your wardrobe with just one more pair of ASSOS tights: the LL.fugu, the King of tights, for the harshest, coldest conditions.
