Endura Luminite Thermal gloves review£39.99

Great all-rounder gloves

BikeRadar score4/5

Endura’s Luminite gloves are aimed at commuters who want great visibility along with decent cold weather performance. These Luminites come with 40g of Thinsulate insulation and a durable water repellant treatment.

On fresh autumn and early winter days when it’s chilly but not freezing, these are a good choice. The outer fabric does a good job of keeping the wind off your hands, while the DWR treatment fends off road spray and light rain. Inside, they have a waterproof lining to keep heavier rain off.

The gloves' design has been well-considered and they feature long velcro cuffs and terry towelling along the index fingers. The rubbery strips on the palms provide plenty of grip on the bar, which is useful in the wet. The comfortable brushed fabric on the inside adds warmth.

The Luminites stand out from the crowd with the amount of reflective detailing they carry. The thumbs, sides of the hands and middle fingers all have highly reflective sections, while the material between the fingers is also reflective.
