In classic New Zealand fashion, the temperatures have plummeted close to zero over recent weeks. Winter also has a slight tendency to be rather wet!
But as they say, there's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing choice.
Don't let the weather stop you from getting out on two wheels!
What are the best winter cycling gloves?
We all know the feeling of cold hands. Some even know what it feels like to be so cold they can't change gears!
A good set of winter cycling gloves is a great investment for every cyclist in winter. You definitely get your money's worth.
The Specialized Element 1.0 Glove
These might just be a favourite at Spoken Cycles. Hugely popular in the bunches around the Waikato.
Designed to keep you warm and protected from wind and water, all without adding any bulk or restricting movement.
Using the Gore WINDSTOPPER waterproof and breathable laminate, these are the lightest softshell gloves Specialized make, so you get excellent flexibility and handlebar feel.
Definitely a top pick.
Defeet ET Dura Woolen Gloves
A great feature of Duragloves is they are thin enough to allow for plenty of dexterity while reaching into pockets, unwrapping and eating food, and operating electronic gadgets.
At a lower price point, but still amazing quality, these are a great investment to keep your hands toasty!
Keeping your toes warm while cycling
The Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal Toe Covers are a cyclists best friend in winter. These provide superior wind and rain protection with a simple pull on design. A must have!
