The RSP Extreme Weather Glove is designed to keep the worst Mother Nature can conjure firmly outside. Anything this impenetrable usually involves TPU laminates and similar wizardry but I was surprised to find these prodigious gauntlets reliant on very substantial polyurethane/nylon palms, and nylon backs/thumbs with a reassuringly tactile polyester micro fleece lining.
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.
It's warming up outside! The winter lobster mitts have retreated back to the glove drawer and it's time for something a bit lighter. The Monaco full finger mitts are an ideal glove for spring and early summer, full fingered but light enough to keep you cool when the sun breaks through. They're comfortable too, and the neutral styling means you can take them to the trails as well if the fancy takes you.
Cold weather never fails to remind us of our frailties and biological shortcomings. For me winter = frozen extremities, making cycling a physically uncomfortable experience rather than the endorphin generating pleasure it should be.
There’s no doubt these Protective road mitts live up to their name. Gel inserts and copious padding is everywhere these days but Protective's meticulous attention to detail distinguishes them from the competition.
I tested the Sealskins All Weather gloves to the maximum in winter hail, a deluge of rain and wind storms. Freezing temperatures and painful hail stones bit into my exposed face, but the gloves, and my hands, stood up to the extreme winter weather. However, they weren't as waterproof as I'd hoped.
Available in a choice of several colours and with all the features you’d expect from adult mitts, the controllers might be just the thing for children looking to cycle longer distances. They offer excellent grip, insulation from road shock and protection in the event of a spill.
