The L1 is the improved version of the former ALS insulator glove. Now made out of RXQ fabric, it has a new pattern design tailored to snugly fit your hands. The inner palm features new siliconized proGrip treatment to ensure secure handlebar contact.
The ideal light insulator glove to be worn by itself or underneath your summer gloves, or to be used as a first layer inner glove underneath the rainGlove, the earlyWinterGlove and/or the fuguGlove.
The newly developed RXQ fabric is based on the legendary Assos RX textile. RXQ is a microfibre insulator fabric with two-way stretch, a soft touch and great breathability. It is unique because the brushed fleece inner surface is made of a hollow micro-Polyester blend with an air channel texture. This creates an insulating micro air cushion next to the skin. The overall volume of the fabric has been reduced and the moisture transportation properties have been improved, this means more body heat is retained and more comfort is achieved.
Winter cycling gloves are designed to keep your hands warm, windproof gloves are especially good at this as they stop the winds chill from reaching your fingers. Many models incorporate a waterproof membrane to prevent the insulation layer getting wet, this is important as water carries the cold quickly. They are shaped so they're comfortable in the usual riding position and the fingers are usually pre-curved. If your riding position puts a lot of weight on your hands, choose gloves with padded palms, some even feature gel inserts for additional comfort and shock absorption. Alternatively, wear your summer cycling gloves underneath a slightly larger pair of insulated winter gloves.
Assos are one of the world's pioneers and specialists in producing high quality cycling clothes and accessories. They are located in a region of Switzerland that has maintained a long standing tradition in first class textile engineering. In the 1970's, Toni Maier-Moussa, founder and chairman of Assos accidently invented lycra cycling clothing, whilst trying to create the ultimate bicycle. During the wind tunnel tests of the first ever carbon-fibre bike, Toni inadvertently found that lycra downhill ski racing suits had much less drag than the woolen-knitted cycling clothes of the time. To this day Assos firmly believe in total product competence, delivering optimum function and comfort, by researching and making its cycling clothing and accessories from the very best materials.
