Winter Gloves

Postby Neddysmith » Fri Feb 09, 2018 10:52 am

Hey Guys,

As the daylight hours are getting shorter it means that slowly but surely the colder winter months are approaching and this year unlike last year i want to be a little more prepared.....

So with this in mind, me and my fingers would appreciate everyone's advice on what gloves you are using for those cold morning or night rides..........

Cheers

I use the dhb Long Finger Windproof Cycling Gloves which I find to be a nice tight fit. Do the job for 2+ degrees, but below that, and particularly on a descent, my fingers start to feel the pain. I'll be looking to purchase some warmer gloves this winter for those sub 0 degree mornings.

I've had a pair of Limar 'Touch' full fingered gloves going for the past few years which have been awesome. Mind you I ride in Melbourne so sub zero temperatures aren't really an issue.

Really depends on what you are calling cold?

Sydney Northern Beaches; defeet duragloves work for me. But it only ever gets into negative temps on a small section of Maccarrs Creek road early in the morning when its probably 4-5c everywhere else in winter.

I have three winter gloves and two which I can recommend.

For lighter gloves, I have some beautiful prendas track cycling gloves. The problem is that I don't see them on their site any more. However can still recommend this brand as their gloves are really well made (I also have two fingerless) and it is worth a look. The track gloves had no padding - very lightweight, comfortable and elegant. I can use them for longer trips, probably down to 10 degrees but below that, they are two lightweight and I prefer padding. They are brilliant as my short distance commuter gloves.

Prendas Gloves


The second glove is also from the UK, a brand I review on BNA, Phew.
Review – Phew Cycling Gloves stop the Winter Chill

I can ride with this at zero degrees (and right now it is damn cold in Europe) and not have frozen hands at the end of the ride. But they also feel relatively light and comfortable. It is a finer type of glove as opposed to gloves with heavy duty straps or leather or padding which may be robust, but can be uncomfortable and inconvenient.

not so long since lived in the north of England and used to think 10 degrees pleasant and mild, in winter a few degrees below all day not unusual - my weapon of choice for those conditions neoprene gloves with silk gloves underneath - here in Melbourne seen 2 frosts in 5 years - for colder mornings I'll wear silk liners when can find them or thin running type gloves under my fingerless mitts and take them off when it warms up oh yes and think it is rule 5

I'm in Brisbane, so it's not that cold.

I have some Aldi winter cycling gloves. Fairly lightweight, and with pads on three fingers so that you can operate a smartphone.

I have some of them too. Useless below about 5c for my hands.
The ski gloves are good for -3 or so.

I would see 5c maybe once or twice a year, on a pre-dawn start to my coldest winter rides. Those rides probably end at about 15 - 20c, so I don't even see the cold temps for very long.

Yep - Brisbane is where all those traditional "summer" sports - cycling, golf, tennis, cricket etc - are actually better in winter. It's cooler, less humid and with less rain.

It's not cold yet - but Specialized do very good winter gloves, so do Cuore. The Cuore ones are a little less bulky, but still warm enough. They were fine in 0 degrees C and hours of pouring rain last year.
