Like all s7 warmers, the kneeWarmer features the ASSOS RX series of fleecy type fabric for ideal insulation and protection for your knees and upper leg.

"Bought these alongside some arm and leg warmers (also in the S7 range). The knee wamers were poorly made not very thick so not warm and appear to be less sturdily made and are missing basic features like grippers to stop them falling down.
Also had the labels on the outside to prevent chaffing of the skin (nice idea), but were placed such that you were limited as to where you could position the knee warmers without the labels showing - more poor design.
Returned them immediately.
Avoid."
Cons: Expensive, Low Quality, Poor Fit, design

With the introduction of S7, the legendary ASSOS legWarmers have been completely re-engineered, making them more technical, more versatile and better performing.

With the introduction of S7, the legendary Assos Armwarmers have been completely re-engineered. The Improved anatomical cut adheres better, stays in place and follows your movements. 2 different fabrics keep you warm and cozy in cold conditions.

"Bought these to replace some Assos Roubaix arm warmers which were excellent. These however are very poor. They're not as thick so not as warm appear to be less sturdily made and arm missing basic features like grippers to stop them falling down.
I returned them immediately.
Avoid."
Cons: Expensive, Low Quality, Poor Fit

Good Hot Weather Base Layer
Posted28 June 2011

"One of my riding partners had one of these mesh base layers so I picked one up for wearing when the weather is on the hot side. It worked very well and is more comfortable to wear than its mesh looks like (although you look far from cool with it on).
Works well in the hot weather, acting as a barrier between your jersey and your skin.
Recommended."
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight, Good Fit

"I've ridded lots of different tyres over the years, last few sets have been Conti. I'm always nervous when switching as I like to throw the bike into corners and really lean on the rubber.
Buying a matched pair seemed to make good sense, and I was really impressed with the performance from new. Now that they're a few hundred miles in, they appear to be wearing in nicely and give you lots of confidence without you having to worry about looking after them too carefully.
For this price, I can't recommend them highly enough and I'd gladly buy them again, when these wear out!"
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Fit, High Quality, grip

How large is the font size for HR and cadence info?

The 705 has two displays which you can switch between. Each can be divided up into up to eight sections. In each section you can display any of the live (speed/cadence/etc) or calculated (average etc) stats.

At their largest (1 or 2 items displayed) the characters are about 14mm tall, so quite large and easy to read at a glance. You can also adjust the contrast and backlight to make the text easier to read.

My preference is to have one screen showing just speed and cadence, and another with 8 smaller items with some more detailed ride break down for cafe stop statistics.
