Tactile feedback, lightweight protection, and overall comfort were the primary focal points of the Equipe RS Aero FF gloves, each of which has been addressed through careful textile development and patterning. The streamlined “no wrinkle” silhouette comes courtesy of seven individual panels that have been cut to form a curved 3D shape, mimicking the intricate anatomical structure of the human hand as it grips the bars. At the back of the hands Assos applied their Breezer Tex, an ultralight woven fabric with mesh-like structure, which promotes breathability and delivers an ultrasoft feel. Strategically positioned pads on the palm, wrapped in perforated synthetic leather, deliver light support and protection, without blocking necessary feedback from the bar. The resulting gloves create a barely-there layer, free of bulky fasteners and fabrics, for a smooth low-volume fit.
The staple for riding in the transitional seasons, provides mid-level insulation and light padding without erasing bar feel. In the age of smart trainers and social training simulators, many of us spend winters training indoors. The Spring Fall Gloves are a bellwether for that approach, maintaining warmth and dry, breathable comfort in cool-to-cold conditions and, when conditions exceed their insulating capacity, letting us know when it's time to retire to the pain cave for winter. The brushed Lycra material is the same as the insulating liner in our Ultraz gloves. It's appropriate for both applications because of its lightly insulating and moisture-wicking properties. Pull tabs make for easy on/off, despite a sleek, anatomically precise cut that eliminates bunching. An extended cuff reduces gaps between glove and sleeve.
