Helping you claw your way through winter.

If you aren't familiar with Assos' lobsterShell 851 gloves, the new shellGloves_s7 might seem a little strange upon first glance. But for those who are in the know about Assos' famous glove shells, having put the earlier iteration to the fall-and-winter-riding test, this updated split-finger design will be a welcome addition to your cold-weather apparel arsenal.

Similar to the lobsterShell 851, the new shellGloves_s7 were designed to be worn on their own for crisp autumn days, or over the earlyWinterGloves_s7 when things really cool down. As a two-part system, maximum protection from the penetration of cold air is provided. Another benefit of mating the gloves together in the manner of the Assos Layering System (ALS) is that a warm layer of air is able to circulate between the two layers.

And like the earlyWinter, the shellGloves_s7's shape is articulated to mirror the shape of your hand when it's grasping the handlebar. The shape places your index and middle fingers in one spot, and your ring and pinky fingers in another. The thumb is kept free to facilitate braking, shifting, and grip.

The gloves were made using a strategic blend of polyamide, polyurethane, and spandex in order to block the wind, which keeps the arctic air from reaching your hands. An extended pull-on cuff stretches up well past your wrist, ensuring complete coverage when paired with Assos' jackets and skinFoil base layers.

The Assos shellGloves_s7 are available in six sizes from XX-Small to X-Large and in the color Black Volkanga. If you're familiar with Assos' ALS Climarange, these gloves fall into Early Winter 5 category. However, if you're not fluent in Assos, it means that they're appropriate for temperatures ranging from around 35 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit without a liner.

These "gloves" are so pointlessly thin they don't do much of anything as a shell layer or a stand-alone glove. I'll ride in any weather and I was hoping these would add as insurance to my Assos winter gloves. In summary, they don't. Okay, they group your fingers into a "lobster claw" but then you notice there isn't any grip. So now you have still cold, slippery fingers, grouped together and fumbling around on the hoods and shifters. You would probably be better off just slipping an old sock over your existing gloves! Save yourself the money and get yourself some mittens. But, if you choose to try them anyway, the size 0 fits snugly over Assos small gloves. Oh, and once they're on you can't get them off because of the ridiculously tight wrist elastic :-)

packs light, keeps you warm

Unlike Eric H, I haven't had any issues with grip with these, but my bike has extremely grippy bar tape -- I would recommend that you go with an elastomer type bar tape like Lizard Skinz in the winter regardless, as most bar tapes are pretty bad in the wet. If you use these with a smooth bar tape, you will probably have grip issues when you use these gloves. I also agree that there should be a tab to help pull the gloves on and off, which is why I'm not giving these a five-star review.

I am really impressed by how well these things pack -- you could probably fit two pairs in a sandwich bag. The gloves keep heat in and wind out, which is impressive given the weight.

Good glove, bad grip

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is the first glove I have ever owned, or seen (other than a full leather or equivalent where the entire glove is made out of high-grip material) , where the palm is made of the exact same very slippery nylon-like material as the back and has ZERO features for grip enhancement. No texture, no rubber, no dots, no nothing. it is like putting your hand up the sleeve of a nylon wind jacket and then trying to grip something. Works OK on rubber brake hoods, well enough on silicone bar tape, but water bottles are a challenge and anything metal, like a door knob or brake levers, is like trying to grab wet ice. Incomprehensible not to at least have a few rubber sections on the palm at this price. The glove has some good features - held up to steady rain, very pliable and dexterous, packs down really well onto a pocket, reasonably warm. Since it is intended to be taken off and on, perhaps multiple times on a ride, should also have large pull tabs, which it lacks. The other "positive" is that there seem to be few options other than heavier-weight skiing glove shells which do not pack down so well.
