Leg warmers: Perfect for cycling in changing temperatures
Small, light, and always handy - leg warmers are the perfect solution for changing weather conditions! These practical little fellas should be part of any equipment, especially between the seasons or when temperatures drop unexpectedly.
You can add them to your cycling outfit quickly and easily, just like arm sleeves. No second set of clothes needed. Keep these compact items handy and just put them into your jersey pockets.
Advantages of leg sleeves
Planning a trip with your road bike or mountain bike? Choosing the right outfit sure can be a problem when temperatures are changing all day long. Short or long clothes? Leg warmers make this decision for you. Simply wear some light clothing and put on your warm sleeves as soon as it gets cold.
Material and fit are crucial
Leg sleeves (somewhat more minimalistic designs are also known as knee sleeves) are worn like protectors and cover the leg. Leg warmers offer different degrees of protection. Fabrics like fleece come in various strengths, and windstopper materials provide great protection as well. Knee warmers are particularly useful when temperatures appear warmer than they really are. Keep in mind that the airstream can get quite uncomfortable after riding your bike for a while.
Renowned manufacturers like Endura, Löffler, Mavic and Pearl Izumi add reflective elements to many of their models. A clear safety bonus during night rides or in case of poor visibility!
