After a 40 mile ride today in the pooring rain and having freezing hands, time for some new gloves, just wondering what people reccomend , dont want wet cold hands this winter , too old for that!!
Looks at seal skin gloves a wiggle, the are almost completely waterproof and very warm
Various waterproof options, but even 100% ones like Sealskinz need a woolen liner glove if you feel the cold.
Merino liners are the key
I've got Specialized long finger gloves for warmer spring/autumn days & SealSkinz Waterproof Winter for the worst weather.
Chucking a pair of SealSkinz Merino liners under either gives you an extra 5C or so of comfort below where they'd usually be useful. Liners are only about a tenner - cracking value
Get a nice pair of warm gloves not too expensive ,then get ome marigold washing up gloves to go over the top keeps wind and rain out completly, my hands never suffer,
Decathlon do some silk glove liners for £6.99 which are brilliant. Really thin but make a massive difference.
I had exactly the same experience on Saturday, no fun whatsoever.
I've just purchased and ridden home in a pair of Endura Deluges. So far they seem really warm and completely windproof. road.cc say they are totally waterproof. There is some padding, but not so much as to make you feel like you aren't connected to the bars. So far I'd recommend them.
Altura Shield does it for me. Pink ones were £10 a while back, but they're usually a bit more than that.
Planet X do some nice softshell gloves for cold but dry. I also like their Deluge gloves. both wer around the £10-15 mark.
As above - Take your pick of winter gloves, but get yourself a pair of merino liners for inside. Work wonders when wet (be that sweat or rain) as they still keep your fingers warm.
