ASSOS MILLE GTO Winter Bib Tights C2
Availability: arriving Autumn 2021
The ASSOS MILLE GTO Winter Bib Tights utilize ASSOS plush C2 insert, low-volume insulation and targeted protection combine to create the definitive regularfit Winter bib tights for the harshest cold-weather conditions.
To engineer the first protection-oriented winter bib tights, ASSOS developed protective construction using a two-layer system that targets the hip panels. First, is the adaptation of the durable ripstop ASSOS dyneRope textile from the off-road equipment collection. Second is the re-engineering of the removable impactPads with a more flexible, breathable design. The result is built-in abrasion resistance, impact protection, and frictionless ASSOS comfort that ensures you’re prepared for winter’s toughest environments.
The main textile is ASSOS proven OSMOS Heavy, ensuring maximum insulation with its brushed skin-facing side. The blasenSchutz front panel is made with OSMOS Light and a second overlapping layer of perforated SPHERE Ultra Hole, where “micro holes” in a stretchy membrane-backed 2L softshell expel excess heat, while maintaining added protection from cold wind and road spray.
The GTO straps and leg panels are constructed using ASSOS rollBar and one-piece Butterfly panel for proven stability. Each leg panel features louvreTec construction, which tapers to the exact shape of your legs for a custom compressive wrap.
Colors: blackSeries, Flamme d'or
zeroWaist: The smoothest transition possible between the body and fabric panel. More comfort with less pressure.
superFlat X-FRAME: A single section of elastic material—folded over on itself—forming a supportive X-frame that delivers limited vertical stretch in the rear.
waterBarrier: Our Geoprene outermost layer at the bottom of the leg that repels water and adheres to booties.
impactPad: New removable, flexible TPU hip pads that have a perforated surface to increase breathability and freedom of movement.
MILLE GTO c2 Insert: Constructed with our proven stitch-free goldenGate side panels and reversed seams throughout for frictionless comfort. The front section features our new sunDeck superlight—successor to our iconic kukuPenthouse—made using an ultrasoft foam-free textile to form a preshaped cup that both supports the male anatomy and promotes maximum ventilation. The insert introduces ASSOS twin21 System made of three separate layers:
microShock: 11mm of lightweight foam creates the foundation of the insert, relying on its proven shock-absorbing composition.
filterFoam: 10mm of lower-density matrix foam is sandwiched between the microShock and 3D waffle to fully absorb microvibrations. Open-cell structure exhausts excess moisture.
3D waffle: This patented next-to-skin, 3-layer perforated foam increases breathability and eliminates excess weight.
