Canari Veloce Pro Arm Warmer

Canari Veloce Pro Arm Warmer for spring and fall

Canari Veloce Pro Arm Warmer

Arm warmers are an inexpensive bit of clothing that can add a great of comfort to your cool weather rides. I live just a stones throw from the eastern shore of Lake Michigan (one of the largest bodies of fresh water in the world) and in the spring and early summer the temperature near the lake is often 10 to 20 degrees lower that just a few miles inland. I usually leave home with arm warmers on and take them off just a few miles down the road—then a couple hours later on my way home I have to put them back on. The Canari Veloce Pro Arm Warmer is a very useful product that you need to add to your cycling kit.

The Canari Veloce Pro Arm Warmer is made of 84% polyester and 16% spandex and uses single-panel construction to eliminate seams. An elastic arm gripper keeps this warmer in place—I have a few other arm warmers that slip down my arms as I ride. This not a thermal arm warmer, nor is it windproof (like the Gore Bike Wear Windstopper Arm Warmer). The Canari Veloce Pro Arm Warmer is great for those days when it is not cold enough for a long sleeve jersey, but not warm enough to wear just a short sleeve jersey. These arm warmers are unisex in design—based upon sizing for men (women should order one size smaller than usual). You will also find these arm warmers are a bit longer than most other brands and you will appreciate this on cool days!

My favorite feature of these arm warmers is the color selection (Black, Killer Yellow, and Solar Orange). Black arm warmers are fine for off-road use, but I prefer hi-vis colors while on the road. The Killer Yellow not only matches my hi-vis yellow jerseys, they also make it a lot easier for motorists to see me signal for a turn.

I don’t own a lot of Canari Cyclewear clothing—mainly because none of the bike shops in my area stock their products. However, every piece of Canari clothing I do own is of very high quality. Canari also makes my favorite great lightweight cycling shell.

The Canari Veloce Pro Arm Warmer appears to be in limited supply, so you need to order them while you can. They have a retail price of around $30, but I noticed that both Sierra Trading Post and R.E.I. have them on sale for about half price.

    Do these arm warmers have a seams (like most ‘Team’ kit ones), or are they of the seamless, knitted design (like those by Defeet for example)?

    woksrider — thought this item does have “single-panel construction” it still has a very thin seam than runs down the entire length of the warmer — it so flat that it never gives me any trouble. Some of my other arm warmers have thick seams that bother me — one of them has “multi-panel construction” and has as least six panels (and a lot of thick seams).
