The starting signal for a long tour is often given early in the morning. You are often almost alone on the road. Surrounded only by nature, the road, the bike path or trail belongs to you all alone! You ride towards the sun and the first rays of sun warm your skin - unfortunately rather timidly.
Bike shorts and a short-sleeved cycling jersey are the perfect clothes for this day, but even the most beautiful sunny day often starts with a cool morning and ends with a shady evening. Now there are basically three options for you! Number one, you're dressed too warm all day and eventually get annoyed with the unnecessary sweat. Or you can just throw on a windbreaker and stash it in your pack later, which of course you'll have to wear permanently - or go for arm warmers and leg warmers.
Arm warmers for cyclists keep your arms mobile
Sleeves and leg warmers are the perfect complement to short-sleeved jerseys, shirts, and short cycling shorts. If necessary, you can quickly slip over or take off the useful leg and arm warmers, so you always have full control over your heat balance. Moreover, arm warmers and leg warmers can be rolled up small, they only take up minimal space and can also be stored in your cycling jersey or bike shorts pocket. They are usually made of highly elastic synthetic fibres and have rubber or silicone inserts at both ends, so that they allow you full freedom of movement and yet cannot slip. Of course, the fabrics are breathable and dry quickly, so arm warmers always feel nice and dry against your skin, protecting you from waterlogging and cold on crisp days.
It's not even an exaggeration to say that arm warmers help your safety on the bike! I'm sure you remember gym class in school - where you learned that only warmed up muscles work well. Chilled arms and legs restrict your freedom of movement, they don't let you react quickly enough and the risk of injury increases! So play it safe and pack a set of arm warmers!
Arm warmers come in a wide variety of colours and shapes and there are also differences in material. We have a lot of models available in our online shop, of course you can also buy arm warmers in different sizes there.
