Winter gloves are a difficult balancing act. Enough insulation so you start a ride warm means you’ll have sweaty mitts after half an hour. Not enough and you face the misery of thawing frozen finger tips.
The SixSixOne Transition glove gets the balance right though. It’s enough to take the chill off at the start of the ride, it doesn’t get too slick inside as the action hots up and the windproof outer stops the rapid cooling effects of descents.
The back of hand protection is enough to make a difference but still comfy to wear. The generous snot wipe is much appreciated as well.
