These GripGrab knee warmers arrived just in time for the start of the changeable autumn period and have been a welcome addition on many training rides and commutes.

Similar to the GripGrab's leg warmers, these knee warmers have excellent top and bottom grippers which make for a stable, comfortable fit and the light fleece lining keeps the chill off delicate knee ligaments and tendons.

The material is also breathable and does a good job of regulating temperature meaning they can be used in a range of conditions.

>>> Leg warmers and knee warmers: a buyer’s guide

The flat-lock seams are comfortable and don’t chafe — indeed it’s easy to forget you’re wearing them.

It’s all about personal preference but these can feel quite long. This is a feature of many brands of knee warmers where not much leg is left uncovered, but enough of your calf is left out when wearing these to allow heat to escape on warmer spring and autumn rides.
