Splinter Mörk Winter Knee Warmers
We've been developing these for a while and we're really pleased to finally make them available as part of the Splinter Mörk winter kit set. We've had issues in the past with knee warmers from other brands either riding up or falling down and bagging or being poorly cut and pinching behind the knee. Not what you want when you're already fighting the conditions and the long winter miles.
We've used an effective but not constrictive gripper and an anatomical cut recognising that cyclists legs work differently to 'standing around' legs. Our knee warmers are optimised for 70-140 degree knee extension.
Using the same premium Italian Roubaix fabric as our matching splinter Mörk bibshorts, these knee warmers sport a washing-machine-friendly combination of greys with the addition of highly visible fluro yellow accents to will keep you riding safely right through the colder months.
- Winter weight premium Italian Roubaix fabric.
- Two panel anatomical cut that is optimised for 70-140 degree knee extension.
- Elasticated, silicone grippers to prevent them riding up / falling down.
- 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. Thigh (cm)
B. Calf (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.
