Specialized (£19.99) Arm and (£19.99) Kneewarmers
The weather never ceases to amaze me. [Me neither – Ed.] As soon as I’m getting settled into the routine of pulling on tights and three layers of long sleeve clothing everyday, the weather goes and throws a curve ball and suddenly I’m overdressed.
It’s exactly for occasions like these that a pair of arm and kneewarmers become ideal, allowing you to dress down a little while still covering the vital part of your limbs. Specialized’s offerings are made from Super Roubaix material – plenty has been written about the advantages of this material in previous reviews – but suffice to say it’s super comfy and warm.
The kneewarmers proved a good, if snug, fit, and articulation is good, in part helped by the pre-shaping. Wide gripper tape kept the knees in place, but the same can’t be said of the armwarmers, which developed a tendency to occasionally make the journey south down the arm. Some stickier gripper tape would help here.[Or beefier arms – Ed.]
