Which Winter gloves, but not too hot or too thick
i need some off rioad gloves for winter, i’ve been using a pair of Spesh enduro’s for years, the old red ones. They aren’t a winter glove but i don’t get really cold hands, so the padding on them keeps the cold off. But they have died, and the current enduro’s aren’t thick enough/too well vented.Posted 6 years ago
So whats out there, i have thought about the planetx windtex one’s but they are more of a road glove, no protection.
Have a look out for 661 Spring’s. They’re great! They’re half way between normal and a full winter glove. They’re waterproof and thinly lined, but your hands don’t get too warm.
I wear mine on all but the coldest days. The Sealskin full winter ones were on this morning though. BBBBBBRRRRRRRRRRRRPosted 6 years agoclubberMember
What do you mean by ‘protection’? You mean armour? I’m not really sure what difference there is between mtb winter gloves and road ones otherwise tbh and I’ve always used the same ones for both.
I use Madison Windshell gloves like these for temperatures down to zero or so and they’re great – light and warm.Posted 6 years agomessiahMember
It was -1 in the forest yesterday and my Answer Fall Line XC Gloves where all I needed. When I hit the road for the 20 min downhill back to the house I threw on some big warm Gore jobs but the Answers are warm enough when in the woods – I really like them but I suspect they might be too roasty-toasty come the summer, for now they are ace.Posted 6 years agoMSPSubscriber
Pearl izumi softshell lite, no insulation as such just a nice softshell material making them windproof and showerproof, decent pittards leather palm to keep good grip and feel. Surprisingly versatile and my choice for most of the winter.Posted 6 years ago
What do you mean by ‘protection’
Something with a leather type palm maybe some double thinkness, i want them for riding a MTB off road. The windtex ones are fine for on road, but thats not want i’m looking for.
The PI ones above look ok but £40…
I’m sure the aldi ones are great, i’ve had lots of their kit, but its a bit pointless re-recommending they as aldi aren’t running them at the moment.
Really a want a summer glove without the mesh and vents.
Blimey the trouble good circulation causes:-)Posted 6 years agomick_tvrMember

I like my royal mercurys, they’re my winter gloves, i don’t normally wear gloves though.
Average thickness normal glove palm, warm, windproof, water resistant on the back of the hands.
I don’t really wear gloves until it’s under about 5*C, so i’m not the best person to advise on “warm” gloves because i don’t really need them. Though i do keep ski gloves in my bag for stops longer than 10 minutes.Posted 6 years agosuperfliMember
Yeah the Fox AF are a very supple glove, lots of feel with them on. Palm is thin though, and mine had worn a couple of holes through after 1 winter (weekend+midweek rides, no commuting). Also the velcro fastener peeled from material on 1st use.Posted 6 years ago
Depends on your circulation, but will be comfortable down to 4-5deg, lower and my hands suffer.
