Bontrager RXL Thermal winter gloves £39.99

Beating the chill

BikeRadar score 4/5

When we first saw these slimline gloves we doubted their ability to fend off a frosty morning, but they proved us wrong. The PrimaLoft insulation really keeps your digits from freezing, and is still thin enough to give you freedom of movement.

Bontrager have done a good job on the palms too, where clever padding takes the sting out of potholed roads, and finger-grips help you shift gears quickly on steep ascents. They claimed to be waterproof, but 10 minutes into a downpour and our fingers were squelching along with the rest of us.
