Made from Super Roubaix fleece material, these knee warmers are a good choice for chilly rides. In keeping with supplementary clothing of this type, they had a tendency to roll down the leg slightly after a couple of hours in the saddle, but not enough to become obvious or annoying, the leg grippers feeling firm without leaving any tell-tale marks against the skin.

Tested during a cold snap, I really felt the benefit of the Super Roubaix material, which proved thin enough to complement a pair of lycra training tights without feeling restrictive. In any case, should they not be required, they’ll roll up and fit comfortably in a jersey pocket.

Thrown into the washing machine with free abandon at 30 degrees they continue to look as new, with a classic, understated design, and at a shade under 15 quid they represent good value for money. A useful addition to anyone’s early season wardrobe, they’ll be of particular interest to riders sensitive to knee trouble.
