OVERVIEW: Leg 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 with the convenient ankle zippers, can be taken off or put on in a matter of seconds, even over your shoes. These warmers include reflective fabric panels for added safety in low-light conditions.

FABRIC & CONSTRUCTION: The next generation Alpine Leg 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 is made from fabric featuring Reflective Technology™ and includes a reflective zip opening for 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 65 or 60°. Wear with the Alpine Jacket and a winter base layer, such as the Thermoregulator, in the 50's, 40's or even 30's and you'll be ready for a long cold days in the saddle.
We recommend you purchase leg warmers in the same size that you typically wear for shorts or bibs. See the size and fit chart for assistance.
