When spring and autumn days still had a chill in the air we went looking for a glove that would bridge the gap between light and airy summer wear and bulky winter protection.
The solution is this Windstopper backed glove from Gore. Beautifully thin and close fitting it is excellent for every type of cycling, from mountain biking right through to touring, although it is primarily aimed at the offroad market.
Articulated fingers give excellent freedom of movement for braking and grip, while thin foam and gel padding on the palm aids comfort without sacrificing too much in the way of bar feel - a nice compromise we find. A velcro wrist is easily snugged up, and the lack of stretch in the material means it was needed each time they are pulled on.
Handily the fingers are made of touchscreen compatible material, so consulting our GPS was a glove-on experience. A small feature, but the reduction in faff was appreciated.
