    Knee warmers

    I prefer riding in shorts in the winter but my knees get cold and sore after a ride. Any recommendation on some good knee warmers? It doesn't need to be super warm or have any padding, just something that stays up and is comfortable

    I have Canari wind front knee Warner's that I wear as long as it isn't below freezing. The work great without issues but I don't really think designing a knee warmer is rocket science.

    I got some adidas running pants last year from Ross for about $10-20...and it was a little chilly last weekend when I went riding..and the pants worked very well....I wear shorts in the winter too...but just put the pants under 'em and I had no problems with the chilly temps.

    I have a couple sets of both the Spec and Endura knee warmers. The key are finding ones that actually stay in place and don't start to fall when riding. I found past pairs of Pearl Izumi and Canari's to slip down easily. The Spec are great and the rubber grips your leg well and holds in place. I bought a pair of Endura this fall and like them even better. The rubber gripper is much better, and they are warmer. they both run around $40.
