A versatile arm warmer for the colder weather. Imagined by David Millar, made by Castelli.
The colour has been chosen to interchange with both colourways of the 1.11 Short and 1.21 Jerseys. The material is Castelli’s Thermoflex fabric, a step up from the Roubaix fabric that most companies use.
It has a slightly tighter knit with higher loft fleece that happens to be more stretchy. This is useful to cyclists as we often have to make contortionist moves when searching around to get into our jersey’s rear pockets. Or lift a coffee to our mouth. Or reach down to pull our socks up. Or adjust our shoes. That sort of thing.
There is elastic at the top to hold them in place, and a turn-able cuff with the rosso fuoco reveal and a reflective stripe at the bottom (our little attempt to help those times you get stuck too long in a café and have to race home before it gets dark).
Arm warmers are a little easier to take on/off than knee/leg warmers. Just pull them on or off, and try to align the seam so that it runs right through your elbow in a straight line. And please, make sure there is no skin showing between the sleeve of your 1.21 Jersey and the top of your 1.91 Arm Warmers.
The decision was made not to carry out the nanotech treatment (a process that makes the fabric water resistant) because it was decided we’d rather focus on absolute comfort rather than weather protection as both the stretchiness and fleece loft is affected negatively by the process. Warmers require as much flexibility and rebound as possible because of the fact they are worn over moving joints. This has been our priority.
The 1.91 Arm Warmers have what we consider to be the optimum length - when positioned at the base of the wrist there is enough material at the top of the arm to fit comfortably under the jersey sleeve, there is also rubber gripping on the internal hem in order to prevent slipping. The wrist hem is reversible, revealing a fire red internal lining and a reflective strip, both primarily there to offer a bit more visibility in bad conditions although it can simply be used to create a different look
Our Warmer sizing relates to your jersey/short size and your body weight. Please note there is crossover.
