Cut from thermal Roubaix fabric, an insulating stretch material with a brushed inner, these warmers are perfect for rides when conditions may vary. At the wrists, they feature large iridescent reflective chevrons for visibility on the move, and there is ‘articulated’ panelling around the elbow for an ergonomic fit with the bike position in mind. The stitching is flat locked to prevent chafing and the cuffs are elasticated for a secure fit. Additionally, there is a silicone gripper on the upper hem for secure positioning against the skin.
About Roubaix fabric
This fabric was originally developed from skiing and was used for a more insulating stretch fabric for harsh cycling conditions. Brushed on the inside for a soft, cosy feel, the breathability and insulating properties of this material are complemented by the way it is produced. The inner face is brushed for a fleece like finish, and the outside is tightly knitted and smooth.
About iridescent reflectivity
Kalf’s iridescent reflective trims and chevrons offer a really important function during the darker winter months, as well as a unique aesthetic: Positioned in areas where there is large rotation such as the wrists and calves, their reflective properties are maximised, helping drivers and other road users acknowledge you.
