As the nights draw in, and the mercury drops we need to think about how to protect our digits from Jack Frost. As we did in last week’s winter clothing supplement, we have chosen three gloves based on the three climates the winter rider is likely to encounter: wet and warm, British winter, and Baltic. Three weeks ago, we got together 15 gloves, five from each ‘zone’ and we put the most promising through our testing process. These three are an example of a great glove for each condition.
Internally the bulk packs down so what initially feels quite restrictive soon becomes far airier.
A long cuff with a pull is snug enough to prevent draughts for most folk, but not so bulky that it doesn't fit under a jacket sleeve. The breathability isn't as high as some higher spec gloves but then neither is the price.
Unless you're deep into an interval-packed winter training programme, these should see you through the majority of riding without overly hot or cold hands.
