Winter gloves...Fall gloves(5 posts)

Winter gloves...Fall glovesPsychler

Well, it's that time again...this year I want to be comfortable. Here in NY we can get very mild days or blistering cold ones. As an avid mt. biker I want to also put in some road miles this fall, winter...I KNOW it is colder out there than in the woods. I need some suggestions on great gloves for the fall and winter.
XC ski gloves work pretty well--check REIcory

We have the same conditions in Reno--50-degree swings between riding to work and riding home. Cross-country ski gloves work pretty well most of the time. They block the wind, but you can still work the brakes and shifter and, since they're designed for intense exercise, they're not too hot when it warms up.

Swobo's wool gloves are perfect for cool fall days. They have little rubberized dots on the palm side for traction.

Spokesman in Santa Cruz has them on a closeout special - $5 - regularly $22.

I have three pairs: fall, winter, and arctic. The fall gloves are the only ones sold as cycling-specific. The winter and arctic skiing gloves. The prices were very good and the seams are strong. I have multiple seasons on all three and they feel good as new.
