It seems that every year we forget how uncomfortable riding in the wet, cold weather of late fall through early spring can be for our legs. Fortunately, the timely arrival of Pearl Izumi's P.R.O. Softshell Leg Warmers reminded us of that before we got out on the road to experience it firsthand.
These warmers are touted as being new, but that's more of a reflection of the advancements made over Pearl's 2013 warmers, which include increased warmth and wider silicone grips at the top that keep the warmers in place while feeling less restrictive. The P.R.O. Softshell panels on the front resist wind and water, and the Thermal Fleece fabric everywhere else ensures flexibility, warmth, and wicking. The panels and seams are arranged anatomically to eliminate uncomfortable bunching and make sure the warmers move with you throughout your full range of motion. The whole package is rounded out with some reflective highlights, which, along with the large, red grip bands, make these a stylish addition to your cold-weather wardrobe.
The Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Softshell Leg Warmers are available in six sizes ranging from X-small to XX-Large in the color Black.
