Review by Lori Hoefer
Dressing for cold weather riding is a fine blend between art and science. Knowing just what to wear and when to wear it is the art, and having the proper clothing with the right technical fabrics and features is the science.
Over twenty years ago, when I started riding, dressing for cold weather on the bike was more about luck and what’s in the closet. No science, no art….and surely not enough protection.
The last two winter seasons I’ve ridden through the winter using thermal leg warmers. While my knees and legs seemed to stay warm, my hips and bottom side really caught a chill at the start of each ride. But at last I have found the perfect lower body solution for cold weather riding in the Assos Lady’s 607 long tight.
Assos markets the Lady’s 607 tight as an early winter tight. Much attention was placed on comfort, fit and function in the development of this piece. Often women’s cycling products aren’t given the attention or the technical focus that men’s products receive. This is surely not the case for the Assos Lady’s 607 tight.
