Ichico Fall Knee Warmers

35.95 49.95

We added Castelli knee warmers to our 2015 Ichico Kit featuring our favorite army green color incorporating a fresh, fun and distinctly Eastern take on the Speedvagen approach to bikes and aesthetics. We believe keeping your knees warm in the cold season is a must.

 

Designed for us by SV family member Masashi 'Ichico' Ichifuru, the SV shield gets re-imagined with a bold kanji character taking the place of the numeral 11. According to Ichico, “Unicorn, written in Japanese kanji character, is Ikkakujyu or ‘single horned beast.’” Ichico took the ‘beast’ part of the kanji character for the image, telling us it has the same meaning as the word "animal," but with a wilder nuance. In his words, “In the same way the number "11" in the shield represents taking it further, in order to “take it to 11” the wild in you must come out and take over.” We couldn’t agree more.

We turned to our friends at Castelli for the pieces themselves. Long time supporters of our SV race team—not to mention cross-town neighbors—Castelli is committed to making superior race kits. Their blend of decades-old history and modern material development echoes our own desire to bring craft principles together with the best possible ingredients.

For something so simple, the arm warmer can certainly be a ride saver. Paired with a vest, they help extend your comfort zone by at least 10 degrees (not scientifically proven). Casetelli’s Lycra® Knee Warmers feature an anatomic cut for a close fit that won’t constrict muscles or motion. Made with a classic gel gripper that has some stretch, they stay put without grabbing. See the complete Castelli sizing chart below.
