Sure, there are days that are too cold to ride, but if you have the Giro 100 Proof Gloves, you can count those too-cold days on one hand, because these waterproof, breathable, and highly insulated lobster mitts will keep you protected when you really need it.
With the extra-warm split-finger design, the 100 Proof's intent is crystal clear: to keep you riding when temperatures drop well below freezing. Its 100g Thinsulate XT-S insulation provides ample warmth without excess bulk, and the X-Static AGrid antimicrobial fleece lining helps you stay toasty while it fights off unpleasant odors. To keep the insulation working even when conditions are wet, the 100 Proof features a Hipora waterproof and breathable membrane to keep out water and wind, and a synthetic Clarino palm that keeps you dry and provides lightweight abrasion resistance and palm padding.
The 100 Proof gloves don't stop there. They have an extended merino wool cuff that keeps out drafts and stays warm even if it gets wet, and plenty of reflective detailing to help you stay visible when you're on the road. Giro also designed the glove with Touchscreen Technology, so you can check your ride stats without having to de-glove and risk freezing your fingers.

I bought these gloves for cycling in the 30s and below. The gloves come with an insulated shell and a pair of standard liners. The combo of the two is an incredibly warm set of gloves. I have used these gloves into the teens and my hands stay warm. The dexterity is not of 5 fingered gloves but this should be expected that 3 finger gloves are not going to have the same dexterity. I am able to shift and brake whenever needed. These gloves are the best cold weather cycling glove I have ever used. If you cycle in the cold and want to keep your hands warm then these are the gloves for you.
