Heavier-duty gloves, toasty-warm, though a little bulky

If you still want to feel your fingers after a cold dry ride, try the Chiba Windstopper Gel.

Rated from -5ºC to +10ºC, they’re ideal for harsh winter riding. The double-layer fleece and windproof outer do an admirable job, and they also breathe well. Gel inserts provide adequate palm protection but their placement could be improved, while the anti-slip material was better placed around the palm and thumb. Elasticated cuffs with neoprene finish mean you don’t have to fiddle with closures, but you can’t leave them open on milder days. A nice design feature is the ‘Quick Pull’ system – easing the job of putting on and taking off these toasty warm gloves.
