full finger gloves
I was expecting to be wowed by the Glacier Glove Premium Cyclocross Glove. I like a thin glove. I like to be able to feel the handlebars in my palms, like to be able to feel the brake and lever levers at my fingertips.
This presents a problem in the winter though, especially as I suffer from poor circulation in my extremities, so I need well insulated gloves to stop my fingers from falling off. As a result, I've been on a constant quest to find a glove that ticks both boxes.
When you hear 'SealSkinz' you normally think 'waterproof' but not here; their Ventilated Cycle Gloves are a gap filler for those times when it's a touch too chilly for mitts but you don't want to be sweating away inside your winter ones.
The Sugoi Firewall GTs are well made windproof gloves that are really comfortable in cool weather.
They're mostly nylon with polyurethane in there to provide windproofing – and they do keep the cold air out well. They're water-resistant too, although not waterproof; your hands will get wet if it rains hard during your ride.
Designed to pretty much be a 'do it all' glove, the Knog Switch has been put together with the features to cover all styles of riding and with a level of warmth aimed at covering most of the year.
