Two-wheeled adventures in the backcountry often include adverse weather, and the advancement of mountain bikes from fat bikes to 29ers and the integration of camping gear has led to easier access of remote locations. If you plan on taking your bike to places less traveled, the Gore Bike Wear ALP-X GT Gloves will make a great companion if the weather looks variable.

Gore devolved the ALP-X GT specifically to offer protection and grip for wet and cold conditions. The shell of this glove features Lycra on the back of the hand to wick and evaporate perspiration. It's also very stretchy to ensure unrestrictive movement. For insulation and wind and water protection, Gore lines the inside of the ALP-X GT with its Gore-Tex laminate.

This laminate is soft against the skin while ensuring your hands are protected from the elements. At the palm, reinforcements add durability, while intelligently placed gel padding works to prevent fatigue. There is a soft thumb wipe integrated into the glove as well. The elastic cuff has a draw cord to seal out cold air, and pull tabs make it easy to pull on or off with frozen fingers.

Finishing off the Gore Bike Wear ALP-X GT Glove is reflective logos for added safety if you find yourself negotiating dark streets to get home. It comes in Small through XXX-Large sizes.

Keeps me from crying. Usually.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:Runs small

Cold fingers are worse than bonking. A hunger knock, or bonk, is a rough experience but at least you're only half aware of how bad things are. Cold hands, while incredibly painful, don't inhibit cerebral function. You'll cry when they're freezing, you'll cry when they are thawing. Maybe if you're bonking during all of this you won't remember, but save yourself the trouble and get a good set of gloves like these . That way you can eat and since your fingers won't be frozen, probably not cry.

I tend to buy them so they're sized generously. A thick glove that's tight on your fingers won't do you any favors.

You think this is a better solution than an XL lobster glove and a good thick liner? If you were to suggest a lobster glove, which would you go for? LG vs. Gore vs. Pearl Izumi?

JER - it all depends on your situation. Lobster gloves are always warmer, but sometimes you want the dexterity of a regular glove. I haven't used lobster gloves in years - now if its that cold, I just go for Bar Mitts.
