Cold Rides Call For Warm Hands
The Cyclone Gel Glove is Pearl Izumi's most popular cool weather glove. If you like the 3D shaped gel padding in Pearl's Elite Glove, this is its warmer, cold-weather cousin.
An Ax Suede Uno synthetic leather palm allows four-way stretch for unparalleled fit, breathability and bar feel while the back-of-hand softshell uses a lightweight, three-layer construction to provide both wind and water protection, and the gauntlet is long enough to ensure overlap with a jacket to prevent a bare wrist.
- BioViz® reflective elements for low light visibility
- Hook and loop closure for perfect fit
- New 3D shaped gel pads reduce bulk and improve grip comfort
- Ax Suede Uno synthetic leather palm with 4-way stretch offers improved fit, breathability, and bar feel
- Three-layer softshell back of hand fabric protects from wind and water

Overall I like these gloves. Feel good while riding, not overly padded which I like. Decent at keeping moisture out, though with hard enough rain or enough time in the rain it'll get through, though I haven't found a pair of gloves where this wasn't the case. The bright color is nice, and the fabric on the thumbs is good for wiping the nose and not making it raw. There was a tag on the gloves when new that showed temp range as being 35-55 degrees Fahrenheit. I know some riders that don't wear any gloves down to the low 40's, so these might work for them in the mid-30's, but I found them to not keep my hands warm for long at anything below 45 or so. I have other gloves that work better for lower temps anyway, but these will serve well for those cool, but not cold, rides with a chance of showers.
I just wore out a pair of these 6 year old gloves while riding the Southern Tier. I tried winter insulated gloves from two other brands, but they were no warmer and certainly no drier than these. In fact, they took longer to dry out once wet from sweat!
Excellent grip, warm in 30 degree weather, and in the rain. Look no further for a better winter glove.
Pearl Izumi does raingear very well. I have found these gloves to be pretty waterproof. Part of that is that they're a little loose around each finger, so that little bit of air keeps the wet glove off of your skin. The fit and padding at the heel of the palm is just great.
Once the temperature goes under 40 degrees farenheit, forget it, they're not warm enough. I like to carry them as a spare set when it's going to be a super wet day.
This glove has been used in 30-40 degree, dry weather. They keep my hand/fingers warm. The index finger material allows operation of my touchscreen Garmin 830, although it's slightly bulky. I'm not a fan of the zipper closure system: the gauntlet is long enough that it requires my jersey/jacket to be tucked into it. That tends to bulk up the fabric of the jacket/jersey such that fully closing the zipper with one hand is difficult at best. If the gauntlet was shorter, one could zip and tuck it into the sleeve opening, or if it was larger diameter, zipping wouldn't be an issue.
For me, these Pearl Izumi cyclone gloves are the go to glove for temps between 40 and 55 degrees F and on raw/wet days. Below 40F and Iï¿½m inside. Not too hot or clammy they also work well on my Garmin head unit touch screen.
This is the perfect set of gloves if, like me, you constantly run warm on the bike. I needed a thinner, waterproof full finger glove for winter riding in Portland OR, and this fit the bill perfectly. I also like that they're thin because it still gives you that "natural road feel" through your handlebars. So far they seem to be built tough and should hold up to a few winters' heavy use.
Fits, well, like a glove!
This is my third pair, the first pair wore out over 2 years of nearly daily use (mostly on the shifter fingers); the second pair was stolen from my handlebar bag while locked up outside of Kinkos.
No trouble using my index shifters, and keeps my hands warm without being sweaty in the 50deg cold mornings in Los Angeles. Probably good down to 40deg.
Needed some non-bulky gloves for chilly morning rides. They work well for me as long as the temp is above 40 Fahrenheit. I use them primarily for road riding and have had zero issues with shifting. Solid gloves with a little extra warmth.
This is a good glove that keeps my hands warm and dry in rain and cold weather. The glove also allows you to use the pointer finger with a touch screen as well - good feature.
This is my second pair. My first lasted me the last couple winters and finally started to wear out.
I often get out in sub freezing temps and don't like wearing heavy/bulky ski style gloves. So I'd looked for a good cold weather glove that still maintained good dexterity. These fit the bill.
On their own they come out when the temps drop below 45-50 and I find them good down to about freezing, unless it's humid. If the air is moist, thick, and penetrating nothing is gonna keep you very warm. In those cases, or when it gets really cold, I'll wear a thin pair of merino knit gloves under these, and have been experimenting with surgical gloves to help keep that moisture barrier in tact which has worked pretty well. I've ridden in dry, single digit temps and with thin gloves under these, I've been good once riding and working up some internal heat.
Regardless of temp, these gloves punch above their weight for me and have become my Goldilocks glove for cold weather. That they aren't overly expensive have also made them feel worth more than the asking price.
The gloves are very lightly insulated. The best thing about this pair of gloves is the gel pads. This new version is longer and can be tucked over the sleeves of your winter jacket. The thumb part is soft for wiping off my runny nose. The inside, however, is a bit rough. The velcro closure has a strange design and is pretty useless. I went ahead and cut mine off so the velcro does not snag any of my bibs.
This is my second pair of these gloves. They are my absolute favorite because they keep your hands warm and dry for most rides. I prefer them because they're light, comfortable, wind proof and I call them waterproof. They aren't specifically waterproof so, yes, your hands can eventually get wet with these but that takes a while in the rain. I ride in the rain 9 months a year and used to be a daily cycle commuter. I've tried many and have waterproof version of these but they are too warm and bulkier.
I was wanting a low profile, cold weather glove and these have fit the bill. I'd say on their own, they keep my hands comfy while on a decently strenuous ride down to about freezing, or low thirties with wind. Below that, I need to add some merino wool gloves underneath, and that keeps me warm down to about 20F. The gel is minimal, but better than no padding. I normally wear XL gloves, and was a little worried that XL in these might not allow me to fit a thin pair of gloves beneath, but that isn't the case. I also picked up a pair of the Giro merino wool gloves to pair with these, and they've been great mates for one another. From my experience, if you're peddling at a decent rate and getting the blood pumping, these gloves do well to insulate and protect from the elements down to around freezing. If colder, or you're doing a more casual jaunt, I'd expect needing a little extra insulation, or up the heart rate to get warmer. Otherwise, I see myself getting some good miles in with these in the shoulder seasons or in inclement weather. They're light weight as well, so no problem throwing them in a jersey pocket if the sun comes out.
I use these as my go to cold weather road and gravel riders. Generally in mid-20's to high 30's. Comfortable and flexible. I appreciate the small underneath Velcro tightener that limits wind access. Finally the extra visibility of the bright coloring on overcast days is nice.
