There comes a time in the shoulder seasons when standard Lycra warmers are no longer sufficient, yet fully-windproof tights are overkill. That's why Pearl Izumi designed the Elite Thermal Knee Warmers. Essentially, these warmers provide a greater degree of warmth than Pearl's standard Thermal Lite series, without getting as deep into winter as Izumi's P.R.O. Barrier line.
The Elite Thermal Warmers utilize Pearl Izumi's thermal fleece backing in order to assist in wicking moisture away from the skin. Additionally, relatively high loft feels luscious against the skin, and it keeps your knees toasty on chilly morning warmups. These warmers are also constructed with a slightly tighter nylon and elastane blend that provides your knees with a touch of support in addition to the requisite warmth. And to ensure that they stay in place, Izumi included a silicone bead around each hem. Lastly, you'll find that these warmers feature reflective accents throughout. This way, your visibility will be increased to motorists in low-light conditions.
The Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal Knee Warmers are available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black and White.
