Keep your legs happy.
POC designed its Fondo line to have long-ride comfort and adaptability, but it didn't forget to add pieces like the Fondo Knee Warmers to the family to provide all-weather versatility. For the spring days that have you leaving the driveway when the air still possesses a definitive chill, pulling on the Fondo Knee Warmers will keep your muscles warm and ward off the tightness that comes from riding in cold weather. Their four-way stretch nylon and elastane knit will move with you as you pedal without inhibiting your range of motion. They're designed to breathe well and wick moisture away from your skin if you start to sweat, and the ever-safety-conscious POC made sure to add a large reflective logo on each side to help improve your visibility to motorists on the roads.

- Q & A
Barely qualifies as a warmer
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
First of all, I can confirm the complaint that these are not navy. They don't match my team's kit at all.
More importantly, the operative word in "knee warmer" is "warmer." These are barely functional as warmers. I was expecting some sort of fleecy material inside, ya know, to keep the knees warm. No. These are basically lycra extensions to your bib shorts. They do kind of keep the wind off, but that's about it. They also don't have grippers on the lower portion so they ride up my monster calves.
These are an improvement on my team issue knee warmers that have a hole in them due to a crash, but that's about it. I'll replace these as soon as possible.
Definitely not navy
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I returned these knee warmers. Never used them so I can't speak to their functionality but they are definitely black and not navy. I'll keep searching for a quality pair of knee warmers that coordinates with my team's navy kits.
