Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal Leg Warmers
Looking for added protection in a thermal weight, yet supple and supportive pair of leg warmers this season? The Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal Leg Warmers now feature PI Dry™ technology, a hydrophobic treatment that makes the fibers repel water without effecting the breathability or the feel of the fabric. This is a highly effective protection layer for fabrics that stretch such as woven or knit materials. By holding in heat, blocking most incoming air and now water, these leg warmers deliver a higher level of overall protection with no appreciable gain in weight and a minimal bump in price.
It is crucial to protect the tendons, ligaments, and muscles that reside in and around the knee and the lower leg and ankle with increased exposure to oncoming wind and cool air. All lose flexibility and are stressed when too cold. Some experts recommend riders cover their knees from 65 degrees and below, even when you feel warm, but most will opt for full leg warmers only under 50-55 degrees or so. The Elite Thermal Leg Warmers combine exceptional warmth, stretch, comfort and anatomically informed design for ideal fit and function. The wide top elastic is plush, so it holds the silicone gripper in place without cutting off your blood supply. These warmers are secure and do their intended job perfectly.
The ELITE Thermal Fleece panels are laid out to follow the natural contour and muscularity of the quad, knee and lower leg. The material itself is exceptionally stretchy, and maintains its elasticity over time. The wide top gripper features light elastic with a silicone gripper for extra hold to ensure a stay-up fit that is comfortable. Now with the water protection of PI DRY, these warmers protect your legs- period. Buy them, and when you know your early morning ride will start at 50 degrees and end at 75, you will be covered and protected in all conditions, knowing you can slip off the leg warmers, roll them up and shove them into a jersey pocket.
