It's safe to say that the winter weather is well and truly upon on us. For all but the most (fool)hardy, it means it's time to pull out the warm winter gloves to keep the elements at bay.
The best winter cycling gloves will balance warmth with dexterity – toasty though a set of ski mitts may be, we'd strongly advise against trying to ride a bike wearing a set.
There will always be some degree of personal preference – hence the plethora of cycling gloves on offer. Some people will prefer a more direct handlebar feel for greatest control, others – with particularly cold hands – will want to double down on insulation and happily bear the sacrifice of a little isolation from the bars
To dig into the detail all about our best-rated and reviewed gloves, you can visit our cycling gloves buying guide. But if you're looking for a bargain, we've complied a list here of all the pairs we truly recommend – and that currently have an excellent winter discount attached.

They're relatively lightweight, at 55g, water-resistant and windproof.
dhb Neoprene Cycling Gloves: Were $33.00 now $23.09 at Wiggle
Save 30% Neoprene cycling gloves work by keeping moisture (from sweat) inside - they effectively work with your own body heat to create a small radiator - and of course, they keep water from the outside away. This style has been popular from other brands, and dhb's own version is cheaper at RRP - so with a further 27% off these are a great deal.
Altura Nightvision 5 Waterproof Glove: Were $56.00 now $25.00 at Wiggle
Save 55% Waterproofing and windproofing are the name of the game with these gloves, as well as visibility - though the deal applies to the black and high viz yellow versions, both of which come with reflective details.

Giro 100 Proof Winter Gloves: Were £79.99 now £69.99 at Tredz
Save 13% 'Lobster' style gloves are recommended for riders who really struggle with cold hands. They keep your index to little fingers enclosed in one section, separating your thumb and forefinger so you still have the same control of the shifters and brakes. These use a High-Loft fabric from Polartec - who really are experts at deep winter material - with a deep-pile fleece lining inside. Cosy.
Castelli Estremo Glove: Were £100 now £80.00 at Sigma Sports
Save 21% Castelli itself calls this glove its 'warmest winter glove'. Considering the fame of some of its other pairs, that is a good omen. The inner is fleece lined, whilst the outer uses Windstopper fabric that promises wind and water resistance. Silicone detailing on the palm offers grip, whist the closure system features Neoprene to keep drips out. The suggested temperature range is -5-5°C, or 23-40°F.
Altura Nightvision 5 Waterproof Glove: Were £39.99 now £19.99 at Wiggle
Save 50% The remit of these gloves is to provide protection from wind and rain - the main body fabric is both wind and more importantly waterproof (not water resistant!). A long cuff with an elasticated section keeps chills from travelling up your arm. Touchscreen compatibility means you don't need to take them off to operate a cycling computer or smartphone. The discount applies to the black and high viz yellow gloves.
