Used these for the first time today on a 2 hour ride averaging 40 degrees (F). First half of the ride was in the mid to high 30's and the second half was low to mid 40's. Towards the end of the ride I was actually thinking about taking them off because they were getting quite toasty. With that in mind, 40 and below these things were perfection. Fantastic warmth, but one of my favorite aspects of the glove is despite it being a serious winter glove, it is actually very fitted, reducing that bulky and goofy winter glove feel. Could use the shifters perfectly, had great feel on the hoods or drops. Really an enjoyable experience. Giordana has taken over my entire shoulder season and winter cycling wardrobe.
These are keeping me toasty between 40-50 degrees. Haven’t had them in lower temps
These gloves are warm without too much bulk, and I like the placement of the padding.
Good amount of insulation but still have some dexterity. My hands still get cold on really chilly/windy days but, in my experience, that is really only solved by an internal heat source and/or bar mitts. I have long hands/fingers, and the large gloves fit well.
'The first day I wore these gloves it was very windy and cold. They kept my hands warm and comfortable through a 21 mile ride. I had no problem using them for braking and shifting. The gloves are well made and should last for a long time'
