What to consider before buying your next winter bike gloves
Type of fabric. There are many waterproof fabrics, the best known is Gore-Tex. If you live in areas where winter is dry then you can opt for cheaper, but very warm, merino wool gloves.
Touch screen. Some winter cycling gloves are equipped with touch screen technology that allows you to use your mobile phone or GPS without having to take off your gloves.
Handlebar type. The winter gloves specifically for cycling have an ergonomic design on the padded part. These pads are placed in the area where the most pressure is exerted. Racing handlebar gloves may prove uncomfortable for a flat handlebar and vice versa.
Average temperature. It seems obvious but it is not. The temperature during the winter varies, wearing gloves that are too heavy or too light could limit the use of the product to a few days a year. Pay attention to the guaranteed temperature or consider buying different gloves for the different phases of winter.
Castelli winter gloves are perfect for those who live in very cold weather or are particularly cold sensitive.
They keep your hands warm without making them sweat thanks to the fleece lining. Your hands will be completely protected from water and wind, making these gloves are ideal for long ride in any bad winter weather.
The gripy and durable fabric for the palm and fingers offers excellent feedback for control, accurate shifts,and confident braking. The palm is also treated to a vibration-dampening palm for reduced fatigue on those longer rides.
Dexterity is vitally important for both bike control and braking and to this end, the Cascade Pros feature an innovative stretch insert between palm and thumb for increased mobility and this works alongside the pre-curved finger shape to reduce fatigue and enhance comfort.
