Look in any of our saddle bags, and you'll find a pair of rolled up arm warmers. You simply can't beat the amount of protection for how little 'just-in-case-space' that they occupy. However, for the truly discerning, not any warmer will suffice when the temperatures drop. So, if you're like us, and only the best fabrics and fit will do, pull on the Capo Roubaix Arm Warmers for your next cold-weather ride.
To strike the ideal balance between warmth and comfort, Capo constructed the Roubaix Arm Warmers from the venerable Thermo Roubaix fabric. With a warp-knit construction, the material has a natural stretch. Within the knit, the threads follow a zig-zag pattern along the length of the warmers. This allows more surface area coverage while using less material, equating directly to an airy, lightweight construction. Super Roubaix Tech's open, hollow core weave also accelerates moisture transfer from the skin to the quick-drying surface of the warmers. However, the precise brushing process is what contributes most to its warmth. After the dying process, dedicated machines perform a brush to the inner-lining that provides a high, fleecy, and warming loft.
For the fit, Capo approached the warmers with minimal seams in mind. This contributed to the elimination of abrasion, but it also assisted in the ease of articulation. You'll notice that, at the elbow, the warmers feature a separate 'pocket' that allows the arm to bend without restriction. For the closure system, the Roubaix warmers have an external elastic gripper at the top, and an internal gripper at the bottom.
The Capo Roubaix Arm Warmers are available in the colors Black, Navy Blue, Red, and White and in the sizes Small/Medium and Large/X-Large. For maximum effectiveness, Capo suggests wearing the warmers between the temperatures of 45 and 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
