No More Cold Fingers!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
If you're anything like me, you strongly dislike riding the trainer indoors during the winter... So maybe you put on some crappy gloves you found at the drug store, and some big plastic bags over your shoes with rubber bands holding them in place just to be outside on that saddle on a semi-clear December afternoon. After about 20 minutes of riding, you start noticing your index, thumb, and middle fingers starting to go numb. You keep going because nothing can be worse than riding in place indoors. By 30 minutes in you're not thinking about the road or even the ride itself, you're having an ongoing battle with yourself about whether or not you should turn around. Because by this point, your fingers are so numb that you can't even feel them anymore. So the pain wins and you ride your sorry butt back home begrudgingly because you chose not to invest in some awesome winter gloves. THAT WAS ME BEFORE I BOUGHT THESE GLOVES.
I'll give you the highlight reel on why these gloves kick ass: Outstanding warmth, Gore's Windstopper fabric, long wrist with a stretchy cuff, side zip ventilation, windproof, water repellant, breathable, a rad snap link for keeping the gloves secure, absorbent material on the thumb for wiping away the sweat from your face, and it has a special material on the thumb and pointer finger that allow you to post pictures of your ride on STRAVA!
