We don’t come from a military background at KOMRAID but we look for inspiration in all sorts of places. Splinter is based on the iconic M90 camouflage pattern developed in the 1970’s and '80's and used most commonly by the Swedish Military.
We love the hard geometric shapes and retro feel but decided to break this up with somewhat camouflage-busting orange accents for a modern take on a classic design. You won’t be able to hide in this kit!
KOMRAID arm warmers are beautifully designed, keep the chill off and enhance the look on the bike.
Wherever you ride, there are those days where you just can't make up your mind how much to wear. If it's an early chilly start or an afternoon that might cloud over, arm warmers are the ideal flexible, lightweight option.
Some people seem to take a rather dull, functional view of arm warmers, providing only plain black ones to be worn almost apologetically with whatever jersey you happen to have selected. However, in keeping with our belief that modular kits should work together aesthetically as well as functionally, our arm warmer designs all work with a specific jersey/shorts/vest to further enhance the overall look on the bike.
Of course, they work great too, offering just the right level of insulation and wind protection you need without being too thick and warm. Also, there is just the right amount of fabric and gripper tension to stay up without creating that nasty pinched sausage look in your upper arm. You won't want to take them off!
- Fleece lined spring/autumn weight fabric.
- Elasticated, silicone upper arm gripper.
- Kit specific design.
We know that judging the sizing of cycling clothing can be tricky. The key measurements of each size are given in the table below. We suggest you compare these measurements against clothing you already have to help you choose the right size for you.
IMPORTANT: Our clothing is ‘race fit’ and is designed to be worn skin tight for maximum aero benefit. If you are at the top end of a size range and/or want a more relaxed fit, we would advise that you go to the next size up.
A. Upper Arm (cm)
B. Wrist (cm)
C. Length (cm)
In developing our line of performance cycling wear, we have subjected each item of clothing to thousands of hours of testing, by riders ranging from weekend warriors to IRONMAN distance triathletes.
There is a commonly-held belief in cycling that cyclists and triathletes are like oil and water – they should never mix. We happen to disagree. An IRONMAN distance triathlon is just about the toughest single day test of endurance you can do.
With never quite enough time between training sessions, you’re always on the verge of being over-trained. This constant state of fatigue makes you irritable. Any slight discomfort is magnified and becomes an excuse not to train. Developing saddle sores is your worst nightmare. They take much longer to heal as you can't afford to take a few days off to recover.
It turns out that IRONMAN training was the perfect opportunity to test both the performance and comfort our clothing.
Over the past 12 months of testing, we have wrecked a lot clothing. We’ve listened to rider feedback and have gone back to the drawing board on more than one occasion, we've added features and developed our designs. In doing so, we have created a line of cycling wear that that brings together absolutely optimal function, comfort and performance.
