Using insulating stretch Roubaix fabric that is soft on the inside and smooth on the outside, these winter essentials are perfect for wearing with your favourite padded shorts in colder conditions or when the temperatures and weather vary. As with the rest of the Kalf range this season, the warmers have large iridescent reflective chevrons for visibility on the road, and there is ‘articulated’ panelling around the back of the knee for an ergonomic and secure fit when your legs are moving. Stitching is flat locked for a smooth finish and there is a silicone gripper on the upper hem for secure positioning against the skin. There are also YKK zipped ankles for easy entry and exit.
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.
