Don’t go out without these warm winter cycling gloves.

Choosing the right winter cycling gloves can make or break a ride. Long finger gloves are essential during the colder months for keeping your hands dry, warm and comfortable. Waterproof gloves are ideal for wet days and thermal inners help keep your fingers toastie. You’ll also want a glove that’s windproof and not so bulky you can’t change gear or brake!

It’s worth noting that you generally get what you pay for with a winter glove. Many gloves claim to be waterproof but most are just water resistant up to a point.

We’ve put together a range of winter cycling gloves that will tick all the boxes and help you enjoy cold rides just a little bit more.

What we say

I’ve been using various SealSkinz gloves over the years and have always found them to be among the best you can get. They are feature packed and will keep your hands warm and dry in all conditions.

All in all the All Weather gloves do an excellent job and have a touch screen compatible material so you don’t have to remove them when you need to use your phone or bike computer.
