Cannondale’s Windfront gloves have a few useful features that aren’t always found on winter models. There are reflective stripes on the pinkies for visible signalling, an absorbent nose wipe along the thumbs and index fingers, well-designed palm pads for support, and grippy fingertips for a confident grasp of the levers. They are also some of the most comfortable lightweight winter gloves we’ve tried.
The women’s specific fit allows for smaller paws, but isn’t too slim or tight to restrict movement. Elastic below the palm keeps the glove in place, with the cuff end flared open to fit over jacket sleeves. They do a great job of blocking wind and have proved water resistant in light rain. Being quite lightweight, they’re not the warmest out there, but for cool days they’re just about perfect.
