Assos S7 Leg Warmers

Postby markdavidhill » Tue Nov 27, 2012 17:08 pm

They fit perfectly. But the little feckers won't stay up! The top of the warmers slowly work towards my knees!

Anyone else experience this?

If it's the ones with the full hip coverage I'm using them at the moment with the T607 thermal bib shorts. I need to spend a bit of time to get everything in place but once I'm there they stay up OK.

Nope. I've the S7s & they don't move once on. It's perhaps not just a function of the leg warmers, but also the shorts you wear over the top?

If they are the right size for you, they shouldn't move once on, especially under a good pair of shorts like yours. The flappy bits should go well up on the outside of your flanks. If not, try wearing the warmers a bit higher on your legs so they do. I have the same combo, and it works very well.

I have them and for some reason I can't work out the one on my right leg always seems to eventually slip down. The left one stays in place fine! Seems to be worse when off the bike (in cafe etc.) than when on it, also using Asos bibs.

Pull them up a bit higher, no slippage here

I've got the knee warders and they fall down under my bib shorts, can't comment for the leg warders as I wear tights in winter. Where as the arm warders are the opposite, they almost cut my circulation off on my arms there so tight.

I am just imagining this guy with Prison guards hanging off of him at various places, whilst trying to ride his bike LOL.

I was going to get some but was put off by loads of negative reviews saying they moved, does seem a bit odd they don't have a gripper at the top (assuming we're talking about the same model).
