High-performance cycling accessory made from soft merino wool

Made from a fabric developed exclusively by Rapha, these high-performance arm warmers combine the natural performance properties of merino wool with a degree of Lycra for stretch and durability. They provide insulation, are highly breathable and also transfer moisture effectively. The fabric is quick-drying so the arm warmers can be used in a variety of conditions. They are versatile enough for city riding and work brilliantly when paired with any short-sleeved Rapha jersey.


As you’ll know if you own any Rapha wool clothing, they use only sheep that are washed and conditioned every morning, groomed twice daily and fed on a diet of nourishing, green-leafed vegetables. All the while, the sheep are watching newsreels of epic Tour de France stages from the 1950s.
And that is all absolutely true, which is why the wool is incredibly soft and fine and suitable for cycling. It really does feel great against your skin. No prickliness, no itchiness, no scratchiness.

ARM LENGTH: From where the seam would start at shoulder to bottom of the wrist.

BICEP CIRCUMFERENCE: Measure around the widest part of the arm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Essential item, luxurious necessity. One of the best piece of bike kit I have ever owned. Warm, light, packs down tiny, warm when wet. Takes the sting out of fresh sping morning rides. Short sleeve pro team jersey, merino arms and a gillet and you are ready for anything spring thru fall. Have been a godsend to have in my race bag on cold race day mornings, cold, wet Ironman UK these kept me going. Really cold IM Lanzarote start had these on for the first hour in the rain, then off they come when the sun rises. Brilliant when teamed with the knee warmers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Weight Warmers My comments apply to the knee and arm warmers equally. They are both excellent. I am in Southern California, so warmers are used only a small portion of the year, but I find these to be perfect when the conditions call for more clothes. They are comfortable, warm and high quality (as you would expect). Often with arm and knee warmers, I find myself stripping them off part way through a ride as they start to feel too hot, but these I keep in place for the duration of my rides--neither too hot nor too cold.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Useful but not class leading Sizing - Ignore the size chart and go for the same size as the top you would buy. I took my measurements and ordered as per the chart - this is a no no! Go one or two sizes up - one for tight and two for relaxed fit. Material - its Merino or a blend of and as such, well made but these are thin and probably best used on a cool day with a short sleeve top or cooler day under a long sleeve one. These are not so cold or wet days. Colour - I bought these to match my short sleeve Rapha jersey - which is also purple but its not really the same purple - close but not the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, comfortable, good fit These are some great arm warmers. I've had a few other pairs of the nylon/furry inside sort and these are a country mile better. The fit is close and very comfortable and easy to forget you're wearing them. Sweat moves through them really well, making them ideal for chilly mornings where you're likely to be rolling them up and down the whole ride. The length (in large) is excellent (I usually need an extra length sleeve in shirts) and generous meaning no 'mind the gap' issues and extra stretch for your watch. Love the bright orange! All in all a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice, soft, stretchy These are excellent arm warmers, probably tied for my favorite pair. They are plenty long, stretchy, and soft; and they stay up without any trouble (for CX activities too, in my experience). The only criticism I have is that the silicone(?) band/gripper at the top feels a bit 'off' compared to the softness and texture of the rest of the product. I'm not sure if it would be possible to use a different material for this purpose. But even with that dichotomy in feel, these are really good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb product My first use of these arm warmers was a delight. They were excellent in every way: cosy, secure, protective, good looking. My only problem was that after ordering a small size, in accordance with the size guide, I 'panicked' and ordered a medium pair as well. This was a mistake as the size guide was absolutely correct. As a result I returned the medium pair, unopened, the same day I received them. After 11 days I have heard nothing, nor received a reply to my recent (2 days) email of query.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light and Tight These are a bit on the thin side for my taste. And they run very small -- I'm a M jersey and had to return the M warmers for L (I have decent guns but nothing extreme!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, comfortable, stay in place. Perfect! Now the weather is turning a little chiller, particular in the mornings, these arm warmers are just the ticket for keeping your arms warm without the need for a full sleeve jacket. Once up and hill or two and nicely warmed up, off they come and folded small into the back pocket. Very comfortable, soft and wash well. I have the warm orange colour to match the gilet and find this a good combination. In fact, I am wearing them now as I'm about to head off out!

Would the blue colour match the navy blue club jersey and navy brevet jersey?

Asked by: Muffintop
Hi, while the colours will not be an exact match due to the different fabrics used they can be worn with the club and brevet jersey. We do have a free 90 return period should you feel they are not suitable.

Are these arm warmers the same colour as the pro team jersey in grey?

Asked by: Nickmane
Hi, the grey arm warmers will be a slightly different tone than the Grey Pro Team Jersey and as such not a perfect match.

Do these have internal/external latex or silicon gripper, or do they feature fabric-enclosed retention to keep those materials off the skin?

Asked by: monkeyboy68
