Danish company GripGrab makes a range of riding accessories which are well suited for UK conditions. The GripGrab Ride Waterproof Winter gloves include a breathable membrane to help retain heat when riding in cold conditions. They are windproof and water repellent as well as being well insulated.

Getting the right weight for a winter glove can be tricky: too much padding and it’s difficult to use your gears and brakes; too little and you can end up with cold fingers. The GripGrab Ride Waterproof Winter gloves hit the middle ground and are effective, without being too warm. Waterproofing is good too, keeping the hands dry, with little tendency to sweatiness.
