Café du Cy­cliste has made its arm-warm­ers with a shaped struc­ture to fol­low the bend in the arm when rid­ing. The Loulou Rains have a non-flat-locked seam run­ning along the base of the warmer and a sec­ond flat-locked seam which coils around the arm. This gives them a pro­nounced cur­va­ture which works well to avoid bunch­ing. The outer fore­arm also has a long re­flec­tive tape sewn into the seam for low-light vis­i­bil­ity.

The fab­ric is fleece-lined Ther­moroubaix, so there’s a lot of warmth and wind re­sis­tance on of­fer. This is combined with a wide, stretchy cuff at the wrist and a sil­i­cone band top grip­per.

Café du Cy­cliste has sur­face-treated the Loulous and their wa­ter re­pel­lency has lasted well through mul­ti­ple wash­ing cy­cles. Al­though not as com­pact and pock­etable as some warm­ers, they will take up most of a jer­sey pocket if you de­cide to take them off. With their tech­ni­cal fea­tures, they should be a good op­tion to take you through the au­tumn.
