All my riding gloves are Fox (except for one pair of fingerless). The motorbike stores stock Fox and a decent range of colours (last time I went in). I have a pair of ladies motocross gloves in black and pink and white that I use for bicycle commuting including in winter but if I remember correctly there were assorted reds in the male range.
I went to the huge upstairs stock section of the Elizabeth Street (Melbourne) Peter Stevens Motorcycle store to find them. Hopefully you have a motorcycle store nearby to you.
I was also looking for a particular pink Fox bicycle glove I'd seen online at the time but the motorbike stores are apparently prohibited by the Australian Fox distributor from bringing in bicycle gloves to their stores - so I was referred to the authorised Fox bicycle apparel seller (99 Bikes - not sure if they are still on the list) and got the exact pair I wanted through them. The motorcycle store was very helpful in calling the distributor. $40 is about right for pricing.
Mine aren't thick gloves but I've found they work well for me over winter, although you will need more than one pair if they get soaked as they do need to dry out.
I got some Bontrager gloves that were good down to about 5 degrees. Below that, damn they hurt... but it was only 1-2 rides when it was that bad. I'm a much stronger rider this year, I might complain as my windchill from awesome power might be worse
For Fox fingerless gloves...try the Fox Reflex http://www.pushys.com.au/fox-reflex-gel ... -2013.html Of course, they're not pink but they are damn fine roadie glove for both girls and boys.
That is really amusing you said that. Guess which type of full length gloves I have? Yes, you guessed it, the Fox Reflex in pink:
Those are the ones I went running around the motorbike and bicycle stores to find. Haven't found a better one yet in that colour. Still looking though.
EDIT: Just did some more looking and the fingerless Fox Reflex do come in pink:
Now, to find a stockist!

No Red colour but they look to have medium in the colours they do have....
No they don't, try selecting the medium.
Please, no reason to apologise, just looking to see if someone knows where I can buy it from.
99 Bikes in Port Melbourne sourced the red/pink for me when I got them last year. I'm size large. Price was similar to what is listed on eBay ($30-$40).
I use a pair of Ninja Ice gloves in winter in Canberra. They are a work type glove and available from some tool shops (total tools) and work wear shops. They are warm grippy due to the rubberised palm - not even close to euro pro but for 8.50 a pair they are the best value cycling accessory I own. You can get them in flouro yellow if you want also.
These Ninja Ice Gloves have a cult following among ice fisherman, winter bicyclists, freezer workers, commercial fisherman, and other cold weather enthusiasts due to their ability to stay soft and flexible down to negative 58 degrees Fahrenheit.
Sold by the pair.
Ninja Ice Gloves:
Hydropellent Technology coated palm and fingertips repels liquids while still providing a firm wet or dry grip
Two layer liner / dual shell construction
07 gauge polyester brushed micro terry liner on the inside for warmth and comfort
15 gauge nylon liner with HPT coating on the outside repels liquids for a firm wet or dry grip
Encapsulated air molecules in outside shell provide a cushioning effect to minimize impact
Coating remains soft and flexible in temperatures as low as -50C/-58F
Treated with Actifresh to kill bacteria and promote freshness
Individually packed pairs with hang tag
Cold storage, commercial fishing, construction, utilities, agriculture, and outdoor winter use.
These are great ice fishing gloves!
From a website review - personally I have found them very versatile for cycling in winter and at the price point why would you not give them a go.
The Ninja gloves are outstanding things. I get them from the local safety shoppe. I've used them cycling but by Insert Preferred Deity Here they do get a bit juicy on the palms. So I don't recommend them for cycling unless you are talking blizzard conditions, even the lightweight version. Fantastic work gloves though.
