Cycling Weekly Verdict

Bearing in mind their £25 price tag the Pinnacle WTP Gloves are a great success. Yes they lack breathability, which on longer rides especially does become an issue. And yes, the quality and functionality of the fabrics isn’t always of the highest order. But equally they do their primary job of keeping your hands warm very well. On top of that they have the details of a more expensive winter glove, including a decent adjustable cuff. In short, great value for money and sufficiently equipped to keep you comfortable during your winter riding.
