Arm Warmers for Cycling

Just like leg warmers and knee warmers, arm warmers are a must-have cycling kit essential. In winter, thermal arm warmers keep you comfortably warm and in summer, special arm sleeves provide protection from harmful UV rays. The best bit? Arm warmers offer high flexibility, since you can easily pack them into your jersey pocket or jacket.

We stock a wide range of arm warmers for winter and UV-resistant arm sleeves for summer for women and men in all common sizes, colours and price ranges by renowned brands like ROSE, assos, Castelli, GORE WEAR and many more!


Why You Should Wear Arm Warmers on the Bike

Cycling arm warmers are a popular accessory for cyclists. No matter if you use arm warmers in winter or UV-resistant arm sleeves in summer – you can’t go wrong with these accessories. When not in use, you can pack them into the pockets of your jersey or jacket to always have them ready at hand. Non-slip grippers on the top and/or bottom hem ensure a good hold.


Arm Warmers for Winter

Thermal arm warmers are mostly used on cold autumn and winter days, as they keep you and your muscles pleasantly warm and protect you from cold wind. It’s the material that is specifically designed for use throughout the cold months of the year that makes the difference:

  • Thermal fabric: To perfectly protect from the cold, arm warmers are made from a thick material that keeps you comfortably warm and prevents the cold from penetrating. At the same time, the fabric is breathable and wicks excess moisture off to the outside quickly. This keeps your arms pleasantly warm and dry on colder days.
  • Brushed inside: For additional warmth, most thermal fabrics are brushed on the inner side. Thus, they trap a protective layer of air to store your body heat. In addition, it makes the material feel softer on the skin.
  • Windproof arm warmers: Arm warmers with a windproof membrane are a practical accessory for even better protection from cold temperatures and draughts. A membrane is a thin plastic sheeting that is integrated in the fabric to prevent wind from penetrating. Fine, microscopically small perforations in the membrane allow water vapour, that is produced when sweating, to escape to the outside fast. Thus, arm warmers with a windproof membrane like GORE WINDSTOPPER impress with a pleasantly warm and dry feeling.

Arm Sleeves as UV Protection for Summer

Even in summer, arm sleeves can be a practical accessory for cyclists. Instead of warm, thermal arm warmers though, you should go for light arm sleeves that provide improved breathability and sun protection thanks to their high-tech fabric.

Especially for use in high temperatures, some manufacturers have developed arm sleeves that offer effective UV protection. Thus, they protect you from harmful UV rays when combined with a respective jersey.

Another reason to wear summer arm sleeves is the breathability the material offers. The fabric wicks excess heat and moisture off to the outside to provide a pleasantly cool and dry feeling on hot days – for high comfort.


What Size Do I Need?

All arm warmers in our range are unisex models designed for women and men alike. Yet, it’s important to find the right size. If you buy your arm warmers too big, they may slip down your arm during exercise. If they are too small and tight, they’ll limit your arm mobility. Many manufacturers offer a respective size chart including all measurements. Arm warmers should fit tight to make sure they won’t slip, but they should not cut into your skin.


With these practical tips, it should be easy to find the right arm warmers for your needs. Our expert consultants will be happy to help you find the right size arm warmers.
