Bontrager RXL Thermal gloves

BikeRadar verdict

80.0 out of 5 stars

"Deceptively warm handwear"

Tuesday, February 15, 2011 12.00pm By

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.
