Literally translating to 'storm nut,' the Assos hL. sturmNuss Pants are truly for the psychopathic cyclist that'll ride through anything. Waterproof, windproof, and on a completely different level of breathable, the hL. sturmNuss Pants are a summary of everything that we love about Assos impeccable, innovative quality that you simply can't find anywhere else. Like any new Assos product, the hL. sturmNuss pants are a complete flip on design conformity, and they owe their very existence to Assos' new Triton fabric. Straight out of the Assos Textile Laboratory how big is the Assos building anyways, the new material is as close to a sentient being as we've ever experienced. Why do we say this Because the pants adapt to temperature. Let us explain. Triton was developed by Assos to provide the best ratio of impermeability to vapor permeability ever in a cycling pant. Basically, this ratio is integral to eliminating fussy humidity and over sweating in rain wear. The fabric features a flexible membrane barrier that lets less body heat escape when the internal temperature is low, and when the internal temperature starts to rise, the pores of the membrane open to let the vapor escape. This means that the protected membrane is constantly regulating your temperature in order to provide a consistent level of warmth. All the while, the pants are keeping external moisture sources out and keeping sweat from building up, or remaining, on the skin. Dry from the inside out. Finally. We're sure that you're as impressed as we are, but of course, Assos didn't stop there. The hL. sturmNuss features different weights of the Triton fabric throughout the pants. On the center panels, where your legs are most affected by the elements, Assos placed the heavier, Triton 2019 material. At the side panels, where flexibility and elasticity are more crucial, Assos positioned the lighter and malleable Triton 0017. Together, you don't have to sacrifice comfort and movement for element protec...
