Maximum efficiency, minimum bulk
There are plenty of times during the year when it's good to have
some knee warmers tucked in a jersey pocket, whether for those
sudden changes in the weather or for epic descents. Of course the
lighter and less bulky they are, the more likely you are to have
them with you, but they also need to insulate effectively. Q36.5
have got it covered with these fleecy, asymmetrical knee warmers -
high tech and a very good fit.
The pre-shaped knee warmer design is constructed entirely from a
ribbed polyester/polyamide fleece material. The fabric has
excellent warmth for its weight and is extremely soft and flexible
for comfort. Polyester on the inner surface gives the best wicking
of moisture, and polyamide on the outer face provides a more dense
and robust surface.
When the rider first wears the knee warmer he or she will notice
that the upper end of the tube has been cut along diagonally,
finishing slightly higher on the outer side of thigh and lower on
the inner side, to avoid creating a tourniquet effect on the
muscles and allow for the best circulation, as well as offering
more complete thermal protection to the outer, most-exposed, part
of the thigh.
Fit is extremely comfortable and ergonomic thanks to the
multi-paneled 'pre-shaped' cut. Both top and bottom ends are
finished without silicone grippers, employing, in their place the
same treated polyamide-elastane gripper used in the Salopette L1
Essential - giving high levels of grip without added bulk.
