Truthfully, while we appreciate a bare lower leg, there's a point where the warmth and comfort of Assos' Roubaix fabric goes further than a healthy layer of embrocation.Assos' LL.haBu s5 bib tights use a combination of the soft Roubaix and Roubaix Q fabrics. Roubaix is a thicker-than-average Lycra with a wicking microfleece interior. It provides the kind of warm, fuzzy feel that can be the difference between soldiering on, or turning back for home when the weather is bleak and dismal. The panels that line the seat area and inner leg are made from the ultra-warming Roubaix fabric. While the outer portion of the legs and the back of the knee use Roubaix Q -- a material that starts its life as Roubaix. However, Assos cuts a waffle pattern into the microfleece interior for Roubaix Q. The reduction in material doesn't decrease the warmth, however, it does decrease the weight and bulk in comparison to standard Roubaix. This is especially important at the knee. The lighter Roubaix Q material won't bunch and chafe at the back of the knee when you pedal.
