When the conditions are cold enough to warrant full-coverage, a choice must be made between bib tights and cycling leg warmers. And while the outcome is heavily dependent upon preference, Specialized's Women's Therminal 2.0 Leg Warmers exceed the demands of those finding themselves in the leg warmer camp. They have a construction that's comprised of Therminal fabric, which is designed to both insulate and manage moisture buildup. To do so, it has a brushed fleece interior with a light loft that pulls moisture away from skin to evaporate it at the material's surface. This loft also has the added benefit of insulation, which occurs by trapping tiny pockets of warmth between the skin and the fabric. At the exterior, you'll find light levels of wind and water protection that'll have you riding comfortably through mixed conditions. As for fit, the warmers have an articulated design that conforms to the leg and its various positions and movements while cycling. And to ensure that they stay set where you want them, Specialized has included a fold-over cuff with a light silicone print to gently hold them in place. - Therminal fabrics feature a brushed fleece interior that insulates, while remaining highly breathable and effective at managing moisture. - Fold-over cuff with silicone print maintains a gentle, secure fit. - Articulated design ensures the perfect fit while in the riding position. - Reflective elements increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions. - Deflect UV 50+ protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays.
To make the Therminal Engineered Leg Warmers, we used a special cylindrical knitting machine that allows us to engineer areas of stretch, compression, and articulation while creating a seamless design. Lighter weight than our standard Therminal Warmer collection, this seamless version is perfect to stash in a jersey pocket when you need a little extra protection on a fast descent or for a long climb in the shadows. We use a yarn that offers good loft for trapping body heat and adding a good sense of durability, while a knit construction allows for excellent air permeability and breathability. This technique and design also comes with the added benefit of aligning with your knee, so the warmers will stay put with just the right amount of compression at the cuffs. - Therminal fabrics feature a brushed fleece interior that insulates while remaining highly breathable and effective at managing moisture. - Engineered construction minimizes edges and stitching, creating a smooth, compressive feel against your skin. - Knitted articulation and openings keep the warmers in place for the perfect fit. - Deflect UV 50+ protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays.
Mother Nature is always in flux, but mankind is both smart and adaptable. In other words, whenever she changes her mood, we always have the right tool for the job. And when that job is protecting against blustery, cold conditions, the right tool is our Deflect Comp Shoe Covers. Compared to our Element line of shoe covers, Deflect places more of a focus on wind resistance, so you'll find a stretchable construction with lightweight insulating properties. And to make getting in and out of the covers easy, we also included a rear zipper. - Deflect fabrics feature a good amount of stretch and a brushed back interior to ensure a light level of insulation. - Abrasion-resistant bottom and toe panels increase the lifespan. - A universal cleat opening makes these covers compatible with either road or mountain shoes. - Reflective elements. - Rear Velcro closure.
