During cool, transitional months, Lycra warmers are no longer sufficient, yet fully-windproof tights are overkill. That's where the Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal Knee Warmers come into play, delivering added warmth without being overly stifling. Essentially, these warmers provide a greater degree of insulation than Pearl's standard Thermal Lite series, without being as warm and winter-specific as their P.R.O. Barrier liner.
Leveraging Pearl's Elite Thermal Fleece panels, these knee warmers assist in wicking moisture off your skin for superior comfort when you're riding hard. These fleece panels keep your knees and legs toasty-warm through cool-to-chilly conditions. Advanced anatomic shaping enhances full range of motion, while eliminating pesky bunching. Its plush, wide elastic binding features a silicone gripper for a secure, non-slip fit. Moreover, you'll find a zippered ankle opening for easy on and off.

If the thermostat dips just a bit, but not quite enough to warrant a full blown legging, these are the perfect addition to your riding kit. Warm, soft, quality, and a good fit.
I use these pretty much every day commuting to work, with temps from upper 30's to mid 50s
great fit and quality!

I wore them on a ride that was cold and rainy, I was so glad I had them on, it keep me warm even when I was so cold every else. My knees was good and the end.
I'm 5' 11" and 170lbs and have 21" thighs which would refer me to a size small, but I have 14.75" calves which is a size medium. Which size should I order?
Do these have silicone grippers on top and bottom to keep them in place?
Only at the top, on the inside.
