Top 5 Winter Cycling Gloves to Get Your Hands Into this Winter

Top 5 Winter Cycling Gloves to Get Your Hands Into this Winter

When riding in the winter, there’s nothing worse that ice-cold fingers that don’t work. ‘Slow motion finger syndrome’, as we like to call it – even trying to undo a zip can become the hardest of tasks. Sometimes, no matter what you put your fingers in, they just don’t seem to get warmer; and why is it that when your fingers are cold, your whole body gets cold too? Each cold season, it’s yet another never-ending battle to find the right glove.

Each rider likes a certain type of glove and purchasing the wrong pair can be an expensive mistake. Too thick? Too stiff? Too bulky? Too small? Can’t feel the levers? The insides fall out the glove when you take them off? The water leaks in? Too rough on your nose when you rub your nose? (Admit it we all do it!) – the annoyances are endless. Anyhow, we’ve tested some in an attempt to try and find you the best cycling gloves out there on the market without having to scroll through pages of options!

Winter days are the best days.

No one wants to be put off winter cycling because of the cold. Winter cycling rides are some of the best rides you can do, so we’ve selected the best cycling gloves on the market to help you maximize your cycling experiences in the coming months…

    Buy now with Probikekit

    Castelli Scalda Elite Gloves - Black

    Product description – A slim-fitting glove that provides complete wind protection but and is entirely fleece-lined for warmth. Reflective transfers on the back of the glove improve visibility while touchscreen fingertips make it possible to operate your smartphone. A silicone grip pattern on the palm is designed to improve grip and a high-stretch cuff makes the gloves easy to get on and off.

    Review – The Scalda isn’t as thick as some of Castelli’s other winter gloves and is designed for those ‘cool’ winter days. The overall quality is superb, as you’d expect from Castelli. Grip on the handlebars is second to none thanks to the all-over silicone grip pattern. In the Scalda your hands will remain warm but not overheat and at just 95 grams you’ll hardly even notice you’re wearing them.
