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 4 is all about the Glacier Premium Glove.

OUT DARNED ELEMENTS! : The Glacier Premium Glove
Sometimes you drive to the race and it’s raining. And it’s been raining all morning. And you get there and it’s still raining. And it’s not going to stop. And you’re already soaked just getting signed up. And you’re staring down 45 minutes of being wet. And you’re thinking maybe this isn’t the way it should be. And you man the heck up and do it anyways. And you finish, colder and wetter than anyone has ever been, ever. And you cry and cry, but your tears are just lost in the rain like so many moments in time.

And you man the heck up and race with your comfortably dry hands. And you finish, a little wet, but still alright. And you win and stand on the top step and suddenly someone hands you the keys to a brand new Lambo and…
Well, you get the idea.
