When it’s a bit cold for mitts but full-on winter gloves are too warm, so that your hands either end up frozen or sweaty, the Gore Universal Mid gloves are exactly the in-between weight which is comfortable.

The gloves are made with windstopper fabric on their backs and a synthetic leather palm. The windstopper backs give plenty of protection from cold winds when holding the bars, without being bulky.
