Giro 100 Proof Winter Gloves Review | Mittens For MTB?

Giro 100 Proof Winter Gloves Review. Are these winter riding mittens a contender for best extreme weather riding wear?

Mittens are not something I’d typically use for mountain biking, mainly because of braking. Perhaps mittens are how we can all get faster and stop comfort braking?

Very muddy snowboarding conditions?

I do have some extremely good mittens for snowboarding, and have often pined to have anything as good for cold weather mountain biking. I have had some STINKERS of winter gloves over the years, both literally and metaphorically. The worst had a waterproof layer, but under a lovely thick load of fabric that would soak up any kind of moisture then use it to freeze my hands numb.

These though? These Giro 100 Proof winter gloves? They’re a contender. As soon as I laid eyes on them I knew they might be the mountain bike mittens I’d longed for. They’re mostly mitten, but with your index fingers freed for single finger braking.

David started mountain biking in the 90’s, by which he means “Ineptly jumping a Saracen Kili Racer off anything available in a nearby industrial estate”. After growing up and living in some extremely flat places, David moved to Yorkshire specifically for the mountain biking. This felt like a horrible mistake at first, because the hills are so steep, but you get used to them pretty quickly.

Previously, David trifled with road and BMX, but mountain bikes always won. He’s most at peace battering down a rough trail, quietly fixing everything that does to a bike, or trying to figure out if that one click of compression damping has made things marginally better or worse. The inept jumping continues to this day.
