These gloves are very warm. But, with Di2 shifting it was impossible to move my fingers without accidentally shifting either or both levers. Out of habit, I would try to wrap my fingers around the hoods and, with some regularity, the thickness of the fingers would cause me to press the small shift lever on both sides. I only rode with them once and that was enough. They might work better if I drug out one of my older bikes with different shifters.
Not as warm as I hoped. Index finger is too tight, with the seam pushing slightly in between index and the middle finger. Thumb is ok, but could use more space too. Cuff is too short, and cold air can enter the gloves from there. The back of the hand has nice fleece lining, but not the palm.
Otherwise good for lower 30 to midhigh 20s, but not any better than PI Lobster mitts. I would extend the cuff coverage, and make it a lobster, that way fingers could keep each other warmer.
For those of you who suffer frozen hands and fingers in winter road riding, these are the gloves for you. Rugged yet flexible, they keep out the wind and cold. Indeed, they are too warm for tempreatures above 38 degrees. Terrific find. Thanks to biketiresdirect for solving my winter glove issues.
Ride consistently in 30 degree temps and these are perfect. Shifting and breaking is no problem and these solved my cold hands problem for good. Ordinary finger gloves could never keep my fingers warm no matter how much insulation they had. Something about having your own fingers next to each other made the difference for me.
I found that the sizing is a little small-order up a size. They work great, my hands are warm. But if your hands sweat and you take the gloves off, it is very hard to put them on again-the inner liner is sticky.
I wear the gloves to ride when it's too cold for regular four-finger gloves. They worked as I had hoped-kept my hands warm (even sweaty) when regular thermal gloves weren't sufficient.
The lobster gloves I've had in the past were a different brand and they've been the only gloves that kept my hands warm so I was excited to replace them. They were too large and bulky, though.
