If you would like to use your summer cycling shorts for a few more weeks before you have to switch to cycling tights, then you might want to consider getting a pair of Gore Bike Wear Ozon Knee Warmers. These lightweight knee warmers will keep you comfortable when the temperature is in the 50′s and you can easily take them off when if the temperature hits the 60′s.
The Gore Bike Wear Ozon Knee Warmers will wick moisture away from your skin and keep your knees warm at the same time. I have found the elastic band at the top of the warmers does a good job of keeping them in place. There is another elastic band on the bottom edge of the warmers that is a bit looser, yet still keeps the fabric from moving around too much. Flat-lock seams prevent both hot spots and chafing. There is a reflective logo on the back of these warmers that should help motorists see you easier at night. In addition, there is a very small reflection circle at the top to identify the left and right warmer.
Before you buy knee warmers you might consider using a product like the DZ Nuts InHeat Embrocation Cream instead. An embrocation cream will warm up your skin just as well as a pair of knee warmers and you won’t have anything to take off if the temperature warms up.
The Gore Bike Wear Ozon Knee Warmers are available in four sizes (S,M,L,XL) and the Gore Bike Wear Web site says they have a suggested list price of $40. However, it seems like every online site (including Amazon.com) claim the suggested list price is $50.
