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.

Reviews:

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just feel fantastic on the skin If you get the same size as your jersey you cannot go wrong, The size is good and the merino is high quality. They feel fantastic next to the skin, but like all merino they do let wind through unlike other arm warmers, so definitely a summer item. The colour choices are limited and thus makes it challenging to match to any jersey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for cold mornings I've used these a couple of times on cold mornings when a long sleeve jersey is too much. Great wind stopping properties and comfortable too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and feel I got these arm warmers to go with my brevet jursey if the same colour (purple/maroon) and they are an ideal combination. The fit and feel is great and they do the job; keep your arms warm. Great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality. I have tiny guns. Think "climber arms". And I have a hard time with arm warmers. For example the rapha arm warmers that come with the classic jersey do not fit me well. They always slide down. But these fit tight. Perfect. No slippage. And super comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than a jacket for less money and weight I wear these every day for commuting when the temp is below about 10 C (50 F). I used to wear a short-sleeve jersey with a jacket, now I just wear the jersey with these arm warmers with a vest for the start of my ride if its extra chilly. I find that my body temperature is much better regulated now, with warmer hands and a cooler core, and I sweat less. Wearing these arm warmers is better than wearing a jacket, they're lighter to carry, and they're in a pleasing pink hue. Should have gotten two pairs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best arm warmers These are super nice, and one of my favorite pieces of cycling gear. They are extremely comfortable (and although the silicone grippers are not as comfy as the rest of the material they definitely do the job of keeping them in place). They are thin and very stretchy, and plenty long (unlike some arm warmers that are too short). I did fall once when wearing them and put a tiny hole in the elbow. The hole has not gotten bigger though, even with a lot of use as well as washing many times. I would say they are not quite as warm as Rapha's thicker traditional arm warmers, but they are more versatile and I have worn them between 40F and 60F.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to arm warmers These are so light, comfy & warm and always stay in place with out restricting the upper arm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great at near freezing The fit is snug and stays connected to the upper arm. Colour is very distinct but I was surprised that it combined well with a number of Rapha tops

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?
