Gore Bike Wear Cross Gore-Tex Gloves

The textured palm has a rubber-like material that provides excellent grip on the bars. Its high cuff protects against cold and wet, and is easily adjustable via an elastic cord-and-lock to adapt to a variety of jackets. Reflective striping on the pinky finger as well as reflective lettering helps add visibility in low-light conditions. We found the Cross gloves had just the right amount of padding in the heel of the hand, adding good comfort when riding on the hoods. These gloves are really warm, even on the coldest days, and remind us of a good skiing glove that has been adapted for the needs of the road cyclist. While the Gore Cross won’t provide the best dexterity, the cold weather protection they provide might mean that is a sacrifice worth making.
