You know what they say: “warm core, warm hands”. Well, they’re lying. Because at this time of year our fingers feel like they might abruptly shatter like so many icicles whilst out on a ride. So choosing the right gloves for the conditions can make a massive difference to the enjoyment of your jaunt.
The dhb Windproof Cycling Gloves are great for ice-cold days, when the wind slices right down to your bone marrow. The fleece lining keeps you snug on the inside, whilst the back of the hand and finger sections are completely covered with a dhb Windslam layer – stopping the cold air dead in its tracks.
The flipside has a grippy, padded suede palm section, with extra silicone grippers on the thumb, middle and index fingers to give you extra confidence when shifting and braking, and the back of the thumb has a nice, soft microfibre section which is perfect for wiping away cold nose dribbles.
The neoprene cuff is nice and tight, and ventilation holes on the palm help to stop you from getting clammy, even when your core finally does get warm!
You can pick up the dhb Windproof Cycling Gloves here for £20.
