Whether you’re just a really aggressive roadie, playing a little bike hockey or just want a little insurance against road rash or broken elbows, StantoVelo’s Protective Arm Warmers could be just your thing.
The fabric is a Lycra/elastane blend with micro fleece interior. The special part is the 6mm EPDM foam padding, which they say is soft but has high impact strength. It’s also antibacterial and waterproof, so sweat won’t turn it into a smelly sponge. They also say it’s soft and flexible enough that you can roll it down and off your arm, then stash it easily in a jersey pocket.
Adding to the protective qualities is the reflective logo on the pads, which face rearward when riding.
One size fits all, stretching from 42cm to 64cm. Black only, machine washable. Retail is £25.99.
