Winter MTB Glove Round Up
Looking for some cold weather, winter MTB gloves? Here are five options we’ve been testing for a while.
Alpinestars Cascade Gore Windstopper $54.95
Equipped with Gore Windstopper fabric, these gloves may be thinner than their WP sibling, but we found them to be a bit warmer. Touchscreen compatible, reinforced high-stress zones, medium palm feel and fairly thin overall construction keeps them comfortable and bulk-free.
Alpinestars Cascade WP Tech $69.95
The thicker, bulkier option from Alpinestars, these insulated gloves feature a nice goat leather palm. The Cascade WP Tech is waterproof and perforated to offer protection from the wet but still allows breathability. We preferred the Gore Windstoppers as they seemed warmer due to the Windstoppr technology. They also have a better bar feel thanks to the thinner materials used.
Leatt DBX 2.0 Windblock $34.99
This weather-resistant wind blocking glove is a killer piece for cooler days with a light breeze or high speeds in the forecast. Very thin MicronGrip palm maintains optimal bar feel. Very comfortable inside and we like the micro-injected 3d Brush Guard protection. These smart phone friendly gloves are for the minimalists looking to take the edge off.
Tasco MTB Dawn Patrol $39.98
Thin, fleece lined paw protectors with a comfortable fit. Wind proof and water resistant on top of the hand, the Dawn Patrol gloves are a solid option for milder temps or riders with warm hands! We can wear these in the 40’s any day. Soft thumb wipe and smart phone friendly.
100% Brisker $29.50
These lightly insulated gloves have saved knuckles in more ways than one. They aren’t thick necessarily, but have just enough padding to protect from unexpected tree punches. Moisture wicking microfiber interior is comfy and a soft thumb makes for easy noise or glass wipes. A single layer Clarion palm maintains comfort and bar feel and integrated tech threads make these gloves smart phone friendly.
