/ Leg Warmers
There seems to be a massive range and I am not sure where to start! I don't want something too warm as if its that cold I will just wear the winter tights. Do you get some that are made of similar material to my lycra bib shorts?
Any suggestions appreciated, thanks.
I love my Sportful arm warmers. So much so I'm going to get some Sportful leg warmers to replace my Assos ones which roll down and make me look like Nora Batty.
Ironic how my two most hated bits of cycling kit are made by Assos.
I've got some endura windtec ones - they're fantastic.
Cheaper than the no rain ones.
Got an older pair of Pearl Izumi ones, which are a fantastic fit but suffer the "Nora Batty's", due to no silicone grippers at the top. They might have fixed this by now.
I would avoid the wind/water proof ones as being too warm.
They have a roubaix type material lining.
Cyclestore.co.uk have various Pearl Izumi leg and knee warmers reduced at the moment, maybe worth a look. they are my LBS, and I have just bought a few pairs.
I can vouch for the Mavic ones coming with effective rubber grippiness at the top (and handily for me they also come in XS). Not too thick either. I also got some (more expensive) Pearl Izumi ones, but they just fall down all the time - useless.
Just wait for Aldi to get their next lot of stock - though I guess their next lot of cycling kit will be of the 'winter' variety.
Cycling stuff, including leg warmers, coming to Aldi next Thursday.
