As the weather takes a turn for the worst, protect yourself against the chill with a pair of arm and knee warmers during the Autumn months

Arm and knee-warmers add versatility to your favourite kit and are easy to take on and off as the weather dictates. We polled the Cycling Weekly office to discover the three most popular products. These came up trumps.

Sportful No Rain arm and knee-warmers £26/£32.50

– Sizes: S-XL – Colours: black, white, red – Score: 9
 Sportful-No-Rain-arm-and-knee-warmers1

Popular throughout the office when they landed last year, our positive first impressions of Sportful’s excellent No Rain range have remained unchanged, with the durability of both arm and knee-warmers proving that rain-repellent materials can last for more than a few washes. In Sportful’s case, this is thanks to tiny silicone particles woven into the fabric rather than any treatment or coating. Comfortable to wear with decent grippers, warm and with a good range of sizes, these superb warmers are perfect for those drizzly rides.

Madison M:Tech 
arm-warmers £16.99
– Sizes: S-L – Colours: black – Score: 8


Madison M:Tech arm-warmers £16.99

Madison M:Tech arm-warmers £16.99

Part of Madison’s broad, no-frills clothing range, these M:Tech arm-warmers represent excellent value for money. A simple design with flatlocked seams and a soft Roubaix lining, we’ve found these last well and keep arms warm even when wet. Matching knee and leg-warmers are also available, priced at a similarly enticing £19.99 and £24.99 respectively.

Rapha Merino knee-warmers £50
– Sizes: S-L – Colours: black – Score: 8


Rapha Merino knee-warmers £50

Rapha Merino knee-warmers £50

We’ve already extolled the numerous benefits of merino so we’ll just get on with telling you why we like these Rapha knee-warmers so much. Aside from being fantastically comfortable and warm, they also fold up incredibly small, making them perfect for stuffing into jersey pockets on those cold early-morning starts that can quickly turn warm. The only real downside is the wet-weather performance — once soaked, not only do they lose all warmth, they can also tear fairly easily, particularly if you’re in a bit of a rush to get them off. Matching arm and leg-warmers are also available priced at £45 and £55 respectively.
