OVERVIEW:Knee warmers are ideal for cyclists who like to adapt to changing temperatures and weather conditions during their ride. They easily pack into a jersey pocket and can be taken off or put on in a matter of seconds. These warmers also include reflective fabric panels for added safety in low-light conditions.
FABRIC & CONSTRUCTION: The next generation Alpine Knee Warmer has been taken back to basics. Leveraging a high-stretch fabric, we simplified construction to a single seam for reduced chafe points without compromising fit. An all-new bottom cuff design is made from fabric featuring Reflective Technology™, providing visibility from all angles. A large, reflective logo adds additional visibility in low-light conditions. We love the ThermaGuard fabric for its compressive fit and soft feel against skin. It's not overly warm while providing the perfect amount of protection for those days where you need to cut the cold without overheating. The gripper-bands are possibly the most critical component of any warmer, so that's why we searched high and low for the best combination of sturdiness, stretch, soft-touch and grip. We think we've found the perfect answer with the wide, stretchy and soft grippers in these warmers. While they hold incredibly well on their own, we went ahead and added a tenacious silicone print to the interior (skin side) to ensure the bands stay locked in place. We recommend washing the warmers prior to wearing to activate the Silicone for best grip. Warmers work best and stay in place when placed directly on the skin, not over a short as Silicone is not designed to grip fabric.

Pair with any shorts or bibs when the temperature dips below 18 or 15°C. Wear with the super versatile Keystone Vest and set of Arm Warmers in the 10's or even the 4's and you'll be ready for a long spring or autumn day in the saddle.
