Assos has not only released details on their stunning new Fall and Winter Habu tights and Tiburuk knickers, they’ve also included these glorious videos in their usual, imitable Swiss style.
Riding in this climaRange gives you some freedom to choose what you wear with these tights. Providing great protection from the cold, they fill the gap between fall or spring outfits and full winter ones. Warm yet breathable, they allow your body to stay at its ideal temperature. They come with or without insert. The without insert version has exactly the same construction, making them perfect for those non-riding activities in early winter. ALS Tips: Pair them with a long sleeve skinFoil, a falkenZahn or even a shell on those warmer days. Or, when the temperature drops, grab your Habu jacket. These tights are flexible, and by pairing them with different products from our Early Winter climaRange you can create an outfit perfect for every ride.
Based on our S7 short, these tights give you all the benefits of their state of the art design and comfort, but with full-length legs. Created with strategically placed areas of additional insulating material to allow you to perform and stay warm, they bring Royal Comfort to our winter tights.
Using many of features found in both the T.tiburuShorts_S7 and TK.tiburuKnicker, we have worked hard to make sure that we use the perfect materials in key places.
RX Medium Fabric with WR treatment – For added insulation we have used RX Medium throughout the majority of these tights. The WR treatment is added to help shed water from road spray and light showers, but doesn’t make the tights waterproof (no membrane).
Anatomically cut – To make sure that they fit perfectly, we have redesigned the rear knee portion of the tight. Tapered, with multiple panels and made from our RX Light fabric, this new, more elastic and breathable area makes the legs noticeably more comfortable.
Loop free ankle – Deciding to do away with all of the loops on our tights is something new for W15. Why? We find they are more comfortable. To keep the legs firmly in place, we have put the same elastic used on our S7 short, which is comfortable enough that you will not notice it.
Double layer of RX Medium on knee – your knee catches the wind and its chill when riding in cooler temperatures. To get the best thermal protection in this area we have added a second layer of our RX Medium fabric.
Integrated Pad Protection (IPP) – is a patent-pending technology we have used at the front of the short. Instead of sewing the insert directly to the fabric, it continues to the panel end. This provides an extended layer of protection without seams in the front area – another step towards total comfort!
blasenSchutz – A feature first used on our s5 winter tights in 2010, this has been proven to keep you more comfortable while riding in cooler weather. By inserting a panel of our Stratagon windblock fabric between the crotch and abdomen panel of the short, we have protected this cold-sensitive area from wind chill, reducing the need to urinate on those cooler rides.
Back pocket – To give you ultimate flexibility in what you wear with these tights, we have included a small pocket on the back bib of these tights so you have somewhere to put your essentials. A new idea for W15, we feel it gives you more flexibility for the Early Winter climaRange.
Reflectors – Early winter means darker days. To make sure that you are seen while out riding we have included two large reflective strips on these tights.
goldenGate – When we talk about S7 we talk about Royal Comfort gameChanger technology and all the comfort benefits that come from this insert. As with our shorts, these knickers have the same insert found in the equipe S7 short. This means that the added comfort of features like the goldenGate, memory foam and an anatomical cut that all come from this platform are present, so finally you can have the same revolution in comfort of our summer shorts when the weather gets colder.

Flexible, warm and comfortable, these are our highly engineered new generation of Early Winter tights, allowing you the ultimate choice of what to pair them with. Based on the S7 insert, they give a new level of comfort. Coming either with or without an insert, you can benefit from their performance and comfort during other early winter activities.
One of our most flexible products, it can be combined with a fall or spring long sleeve skinFoil and our falkenZahn, or if a bit cooler our Intermediate Jacket. These knickers are in their element on the days when a full-length winter tight is just too hot. ALS Tips: For increased warmth during the start of a ride, pairing them with the either a skinFoil and falkenZahn or our Intermedate Jacket allows you to fine-tune your outfit.
At the heart of these knickers is our gameChanger S7 platform, so you can experience Royal Comfort year round. Using the T.tiburuShort_s7 as a starting point, we have worked to create our next generation of knickers.
Through our stringent testing process we have developed what we feel is the best and most flexible solution for fall and spring.
RX Medium Fabric with WR treatment – From the T.tiburuShort_s7 we have taken the added insulation of our RX Medium fabric, with its fleece-like feel keeping you warmer. On top of that, to protect you from those fall and spring showers, we have used our WR (Water Resistant) treatment on all the material to shed water and keep you riding longer.
blasenSchutz (bladder protection) – A feature first used on our s5 winter tights in 2010, this has been proven to keep you more comfortable while riding in cooler weather. By inserting a panel of our Stratagon windblock fabric between the crotch and abdomen panel of the short, we have protected this cold-sensitive area from wind chill, reducing the need to urinate on those cooler rides.

The perfect piece of clothing for when a short and legwarmer combination is just not warm enough, but full winter tights are too much. The TK.tiburuKnickers_s7 will keep you warm, without the volume of tights. All you have to do is choose what you want to pair it with.
