Title: Looking for Cycling gloves for COLD WEATHER
Post by: PeanutButterShammyCream on February 01, 2017, 06:44:38 am
I am going to be riding through Utah and Colorado in April. What type of cycling gloves do you guys recommend for this? I don't want to wear the lobster type though.....


Much Love!

You may need a few pairs of gloves to cover the temperature range you may encounter.  I have gloves for 40s, 30s, 20s, and below that for commuting.  On a couple of cold 200k rides, though, I've managed with some fairly thin gloves (Velowear or similar) with lots of consistent pedaling.

I know you said you don't want lobster gloves but have you tried them - I suffer from cold hands but get on much better with lobster gloves than regular gloves and they don't impede gear change or operating breaks.
