Arm & Leg Warmers
Arm and leg warmers for cyclists are a versatile clothing accessory that can really help you stay warm and dry in changeable conditions.
The idea is that cycling arm warmers and leg warmers can be easily added on and taken off as the temperatures change. They're ideal for cyclists who may be out in the morning when it's cooler – say on a commute to work - so need appropriate clothing to keep warm, but are heading home when the temperature has risen and need to keep cool. They can also provide protection from flying mud and spray.
The warmers are simple tubes of lycra that are small and can be rolled up making them easy to pack in your bag or even stick in a pocket. Cycling leg warmers roll up from the ankle to the middle of the thigh, with the leg of your cycling shorts covering the top, while arm warmers stretch from your wrist to shoulder with your sleeve going over the top. Look for grippers at both ends to help keep them securely in place and zips on leg warmers so you can get them on and off without needing to remove your shoes.
If you want to buy your leg and arm warmers online remember that they come in different sizes so measure up to get the right fit. Look out for trusted brands such as Sugoi and Skins who have a wide range of warmers to choose from.
