WIN: ASSOS Winter Gear From R&A CYCLES!
If you live where we do, it’s cooling off out there – so the timing is perfect to enter to win an ASSOS winter jacket, bibtights and base layer to keep you warm. Thank the guys at R&A Cycles for this one – and ENTER To WIN here.

The reason you don’t see much advertising for Assos is because their gear practically sells itself. The Assos quality and comfort is legendary, and sure it costs more than most brands, but when gear is this good, people buy it.

Now you’ve got a chance to win some for yourself – right here on PEZ. The winner can choose from either the Assos iJ.haBu5 and LL.716_S5 Bibtights for men, or the umajack and uma.LL_S2 bib tights with the S2 insert for women, and don’t forget your earlyWinterInteractive bodyInsulator base layer.

The whole winning package is worth US$1,000.00. (US$950.00 for women’s prize.)

The men’s iJ.haBu5M is designed to be worn as a second layer, over your ASSOS next-to-skin Interactive Insulator. With careful selection of your first layer (ASSOS Interactive Insulator) you can extend the activity and Clima Range of iJ.haBu5. Now you can fine tune your earlyWinter outfit to perfectly match your physiology, the intensity of your ride and your local weather conditions. Features new stratagonLight and RXQ fabrics.

The Ladies’ fit umaJack is style and functionality in a woman’s specific cut. Wearing an umaJack, you’ll stay warm and protected throughout Fall and Winter. umaJack, which co-ordinates perfectly with uma.LL bibtights, is ideal for temperatures between 0° and 12°C (32-53F). It features exclusive ASSOS Airblock 851 fabric on the arms, chest and abdominal area, to offer superior wind protection, while maintaining body heat. Extra Airblock 851 protection is applied to the shoulders. Laminated, elastic fabric on the neck and the upper back offer excellent wind protection. Combine umaJack with an ASSOS Interactive bodyInsulator, for your perfect level of comfort and warmth, over a wide range of conditions and temperatures.

The long sleeve, earlyWinterInteractive bodyInsulator is almost identical to the fallInterctive, except that it has a zipped, high-collar construction. When zipped closed, the high-collar gives additional protection from chilling wind, while unzipping offers additional temperature regulation while you’re climbing.

The LL.716_S5 Bibtight is the next generation ASSOS S5 full-length bibtight for cold Winter riding conditions. It features warm ASSOS RX_Plus and wind blocking stratagon airBlock membrane fabric inserts where you need them most. Available with or without an ASSOS S5 insert. Why? Without an insert, you wear your regular ASSOS shorts underneath. Then, when temperatures drop even lower, wear your ASSOS knicker as a first layer, for WinterPlus riding.

The uma.LL_S2 with the S2 insert is Assos’ most technically advanced, full-length Winter bibtight for women, uma.LL is designed to ward off the cold in a wide climate range. Strategically placed, ASSOS Airblock 851 textile panels on the hip, knee and upper thigh are combined with RX Roubaix fabric to offer maximum wind protection, superb body heat retention, and optimal moisture wicking. Uma.LL features a woman specific, FI.Lady_S2 insert for comfort and Monobib ABC-M, ASSOS Bib Closure-Mechanism, for the perfect fit. Breathable, elastic bib braces transfer moisture and sweat away from your body, to help keep you dry. Elastic foot stirrups keep your tights in the perfect position.

The promo only runs until November 29, 2010 , so get to it – !
