Which gloves for the winter mtb riding?
Specialized Radiant for when it’s absolutely freezing and raining.
Castelli Estremo when it’s a little warmer and not raining.
I always wear inner gloves with either of these, they make a huge difference to warmth. Currently using Assos inner gloves but have also used Gore which are just as good.

Does anyone know of any gloves that are toasty warm, waterproof and windproof but more importantly come in small sizes and still give you enough dexterity to change gear etc?Posted 4 years ago
My wife suffers from Renaud’s but loves riding. She gets really sore hands if it’s proper coldCraigWMember

Hotpog pogies. They are rather warm, plus still let you change gear etc. If its really cold you can wear some warm gloves inside the pogies.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I like my Mercurys but they’re not a winter glove imo, sort of wet/coldish 3-season. Mind you maybe that’s all you need, you obviously run hotter than me.
Love my Perfect Curves, but they’re properly super-mega-cold gloves. Fox Antifreeze does me for everything else but frankly they are expensive and a little shortlived.Posted 4 years agowordnumbMember
I like the Sealskinz ultra grips with a liner glove underneath, but I’m not someone who feels the cold particularly so these are a good compromise between comfort and dexterity.
Wish I knew how to fix them though, my 10 year old pair got snagged by a thorn and now aren’t as waterproof – I have a replacement pair but one snag does not a redundant glove make; unless it’s raining heavily.Posted 4 years agopeterfileMember
I’ve not tried them for riding yet, but I wear THESE for ice climbing (as do many others). If they’re good enough for handing ice tools and gear on a climb then surely they’re suitable for riding? Good dexterity and warm + very grippy….also really really cheap (I got a few pairs from ebay at £5 a pair).
I’ll update once i’ve had them out on the bike.

How about using the same gloves you use for the rest of the year and stop being a pussy.Posted 4 years ago
As you said your hands are cold for the first 20 mins then after that you’ll be fine.
If you’re riding off road on anything that’s even slightly technical you don’t need any pussyassed comuter keep your girly hands warm gloves. 😉
Unless your as shirtlifty as some of them shirtlifters up there^^^.backinirelandMember
Think this is a person a l thing some folk suffer more with cold hands.Posted 4 years ago
I do find if you keep wrist area warm hands don.t feel as cold my merino under layer with thumb loops seems to help.
I have specialized sub zero gloves, normally ok with others but have us e d with liners at minus 12
Above 3 or 4 degrees find these too warm and use various levels of planet x gloves.
Some give and some take.
You sound like a taker that doesn’t even have the manners to push back. 😉
Or maybe you could read what the OP posted and think about what i’ve suggested.
Makes sense to me as i have cold hands for about 1/4 of an hour then they’re the same temperature as they are any other time of year. 8)Posted 4 years ago
SSS Made me laugh, randomly got bought some gloves as present and their too big, this choice when changing them.Posted 4 years ago
Not a fair weather mtb rider, out tomorrow with lads what ever the weather..
Graham- wind proof makes sense to me as well:)
Anyway off to see my boyfriend now 🙂joshbosh12Member
Hate to put this thread back on topic but i own a pair of the Royal Mercury gloves and the stitching is terrible and has come apart in a couple of places but i was at Cwmcarn @ 10am this morning, it was around Zero degrees, my fingers were freezing for the first 15 mins and then they were ok for the rest of the ride.Posted 4 years ago
Good luck with them, i hope they last longer than mine have.
