The Gore Wear Gore-Tex Infinium gloves have rapidly become my go-to gloves for rides throughout the late winter and into the early spring, when temperatures manage to stagger up over 5C but never make it to 15C.

Even more so than the GripGrab Raptor gloves which we tested a few months ago, the Gore-Tex Infinium gloves pull off the trick of keeping your hands warm with minimal weight and thickness and no padding. So as well as spring riding, they’re a good option for high intensity, short duration winter activities like cyclocross. I was comfortable both ascending Monte Grappa and on the way down too; with temperatures around 2C at the top, I never found my hands getting cold.
