Its that time again.

I'm aware that cycling gloves in winter are as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike. The problem remains though, Ski gloves are the way to go.

I dont want cycle gloves. Can you recommend some ski gloves?

What, to cycle with? No. All the relevant tech that makes ski gloves good is available in cycling gloves anyways (gore-tex and primaloft).

I go with a mid-range winter glove and a liner glove, the two layers seem to work great, plus you don't get the bulk of a full on winter glove so you can still grip and use everything. The ski glove idea seems almost comical.

The best winter gloves I bought for cycling were from TKmax and I guess were motorcycle/general winter gloves. Like Bozman said, it seems that having a liner glove plus the outer as well is the best way to keep fingers warm. I cycled all last winter, including -4° C. I tried Sealskinz and they were rubbish IMO.

Gloves are a bit personal. I can ride in £1 magic gloves off the market most of the winter and the most I ever really need to wear are some prendas roubaix gloves or some neoprene sailing gloves off the market, yet my mate has to wear massive goretex skiing gloves or he can't feel his hands at all.

the 10 quid planet-x winter gloves are good - I used them all last year with no real issues for commuting, but if I am honest, they are not great when its heavy rain, and I didn't go on any long rides (1 hour max)

For the extreme temperatures, I would recommend the Gill sailing gloves ... gn=pid2842 as a friend swears by them.

however if you do a search, there are SHEDLOADS of threads on this, and replies from people with lots of experience.

This is one thread I have bookmarked:
