When the cool winds blow and the starts are early, cycling knee warmers are a riding essential. Designed primarily to keep your lower thighs and upper calves from getting cold, they are high on the list for 'most used item' in a serious road cyclist's wardrobe. More >>
Back of jersey, or on from the get-go?
Cycling sometimes requires pretty impressive powers of weather detection, and it is with these powers that you will decide if the day's ride requires knee warmers. If you're only just acquiring these skills then we can make it easy for you. If it's cold enough to make your lower legs tingle and the hairs stand on end, then go back inside and put on some knee warmers - easy! Alternatively, ride without knee warmers but keep them balled up in a rear jersey pocket, in which case you are covered for both eventualities.
Which ones are for me?
Choosing a knee warmer for cycling is quite easy, and like many things in life, you just have to ask yourself what you are looking for. Some riders prefer a stretchier material, and aren't overly concerned with weather protection. On the other hand, there are riders who like to have a degree of wind and water resistance to their knee warmers. Finally there are riders who prefer natural fibres like merino wool, but others swear by synthetic offerings from the likes of Craft of Sweden. Whichever rider you are, don't forget to check out our 'Rider Reviews' on the product pages in order to see what your fellow cyclist thinks of their purchase, and remember, always make your decision based on how, where and when you ride!
