Gloves can make or break a ride. A lot of cyclists focus extensively on jackets, base-layers, shoes, shoe covers, etc… but fail to consider their fingers when it comes to bad weather riding. And if you can’t feel your fingers (or worse, when you can’t move them) riding a bike is going to put you in some hairy situations. That said – here’s our handy Bad Weather Glove Guide to keep you on your bike even in the cold and wet conditions that are fast approaching. Part 2 is all about the Craft Weather Glove.
Enjoy the full review (and another photo!) after the break –
When the weather turns from bad to worse, these are the fellas you want by your side. Aptly named, these gloves protect your digits from the worst Mother Nature can throw at you. With a neoprene-like upper and a sealed leather/gel palm, they’ll keep out the elements and keep your hands warm. Even when your bartape is super slick, these grippy gloves will keep you in full control of your valiant steed.
TEMP RATING : 25* – 40* – Great for a wet Fall and Spring, and most of what Winter will throw at us
WATER RESISTANT/PROOF? : Resistant, but not proof. If it’s a downpour, you’ll stay warm, but anything more than two hours in a hard rain and you’ll have some moisture in your glove.
COMFORT RATING : Comfortable enough for daily use being a full fingered glove, and the inside is slightly brushed. You’ll feel fine in these for as long as your ride/commute takes.
COST : $49.99
