I am constantly asked my opinion or referral of all kinds of cycling accessories and I have been fortunate to have experience with a smorgasbord of items from working in bike shops. Winter gloves is a popular request.
Over the last 14 years of cycling, I have ridden in very cold temps and my toes and fingers were always the coldest part…and the hardest part to stay warm. I have literally tried over a dozen brands of winter gloves, ranging from $25 – $200+ a pair; split fingers, lobster fingers…you name it, I have tried it. In this tireless quest for the best winter gloves, I finally found the BEST WINTER GLOVE.
And the winner is? RavX WindX gloves. No, RavX is probably not the brand that comes to your mind first, but they will be the last pair of winter gloves you will buy. In addition, they are not the most expensive, either (avg $30), which proves that the most expensive does not always mean the best. Certainly not in this case.
The WindX model works incredibly well, even in at freezing temps. No need for glove liners, either. Yep, I’ve tried so many combinations; all failed. There are several bike shops in Atlanta that carry RavX so getting a pair shouldn’t be difficult. I only wished they came in yellow as an accent color; oh well.
So, the next time you hear a cyclist complain about cold hands, now you can give them some great advice. RavX WindX.
See ya on the road,
