When the weather is at its worst you want a good quality pair of winter gloves. There’s a lot to like about the Nemos- for the price they are hard to fault.

The neoprene FS260- Pro gloves keep your hands warm when the temperature drops and the snug fit – the gloves are available in various sizes- means that at a push you can wear them beneath a larger pair of gloves in the most extreme weather.

Is this the world's hardest bike race?

The gloves do a good job of repelling the rain although in the heaviest downpours some water gets through - but this is where the neoprene gloves act like a wetsuit, the gloves keep your hands warmer than most when they get wet.

Often gloves that keep your fingers warm are let down by a lack of flexibility. Not so with the Nemos. The neoprene gloves are flexible, stretchy and supple without being too tight. The silicone print across the palm and fingers help with gripping the bars, for operating a cycling computer and removing supplies from your pockets.

The cuff comes up well over the wrist and there is no slippage. On the upper the Endura logo is reflective for enhanced visibility.

The only criticisms of the Endura FS260-Pro Nemo gloves, and in fairness it is to be expected from gloves that are 90% neoprene, are that on long rides due to limited breathability your fingers will look like you’ve been in a bath too long and some may prefer padding on the palms.
