Whenever we're confronted with a difficult buying decision in cycling wear, we turn to a pennies-per-mile equation. In effect, pennies-per-mile means calculating how important it is for us to be comfortable across the thousands to tens-of-thousands of miles we'll be subjecting our gear to and whether or not that comfort is worth springing for quality kit that won't leave us fearing the saddle after just two hours of spinning. We inevitably conclude that it's worth it, and Assos' HL. tiburuTights_s7 Lady Tights are a sound cold-weather investment when weighted on the pennies-per-mile scale. They combine two types of insulating material with the latest chamois technology and the inimitable Assos fit, an equation that takes the sting out of chilly training rides and may actually have you looking forward to the frigid fingers and numb noses of late fall and early spring. RX Medium is the first material used. It surfaces throughout the front of the tights and insulates in two ways. The first is standard: It's thicker, so it increases loft for additional insulation over the front thighs, knees, and shins--the parts of your legs that lead into the wind. The second is far less standard, making it far more Assos: RX Medium is, essentially, any other brand's heavy thermal material but with an irrigated grid of reverse waffling that creates additional negative space to trap more insulating air without sacrificing the protective gains of a thicker material. For the tights' aft face, Assos takes advantage of the fact that your hammies and gluts don't typically lead into the wind in order to lighten up with RX Light. (If those muscle groups are actually leading into the wind, then you probably have bigger immediate issues to deal with than cold.) RX Light is a lower loft material that emphasizes fit and breathability over bulwark protection, helping to dump internal moisture and excess heat. In autumn and spring cycling, when temperatures hover in the 35-50 degrees Fahrenheit...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
