Can anyone advise on a pair of gloves that will keep the tips of my fingers and thumbs warm in winter time?

Any gloves I ever bought in the past were cosy warm for about a half hour then the tips of my fingers and thumbs freeze.

If I ask in a bike shop, they'll say these and those are the ones to go for. I pay and later find out they aren't. And I don't wan't muffs or heated grips just a pair of proper winter weather gloves.

If you buy a new pair of winter gloves and your fingers are still cold,
you could try and wear a warmer pair of pants and jocks. That usually does the trick.

Not sure what you are riding, but when things get really cold, when stopped at the lights, I will put both gloved hands on the engine to get some heat into them.

Bought a pair of Levior winter gloves in Jp Motorcycle two years ago and they are still great, never feel cold in them. Even on a run this morning hands were warm as toast. About 80

I have a pair of these
http://www.held-biker-fashion.de/ind...2570&lg=e&lg=e
They really are warm, so much so that the heated grips on the bike are redundant. They are however expensive. I bought them on the net from Germany for around 100.

Get some inner gloves as well they should help, but basically if you're on a long spin, unless you get heated grips, your finger tips WILL get cold after a time. Only remedy is to stop every so often and get a coffee or something and let them thaw out.

Always remember a story a friend of mine told me about a biker friend of his who went on a winter spin from donegal to cornwall.

-He lost a toe to frostbite

Ride a ZXR750 at the moment. I bought a new pair of gloves Sept. Supposedly rain and wind proof with 3M and thinsulate lining....for half an hour.

Got new boots at the same time. No probs with them. Have good leathers and armoured rain proof coat with neck warmer but my bloody finger tips still freeze.

Are there any gloves with kevlar/carbon fibre tips I wonder

I use these, about 70E (including delivery) from UK:
http://www.frank-thomas.co.uk/product/mgl/h2o080.html#

Just went back from 1800 miles ride to France and back so I had enough time to test it properly: When it's real cold you could go for to hours or so. Then you have to stop and get the blood flowing back to your fingers tips. Good time for fuel/ciggi/coffee/lunch. Should be waterproof as well, fortunately for me I had no real rain to test is but was grand after hours of fog ride. I should try inner thin gloves for the cruel cold winter mornings.

Read here for some more info that I got to a similar question:

Thanks for the info lads.


If i'm a pussy for wanting to protect my hands...so be it. I've come off bikes in the past and the gloves protected my knuckles.

At least I don't have to wear pink ears to get noticed.

Pink Ears? How pathetic

Red horns are way cooler.

Don't really want to start the gloves/no gloves debate again but...I really couldn't believe someone not wearing gloves on a bike...even if it is to keep their hands warm!

Anyhow... Alpinestars Jet Road combines good safety (leather & carbon knuckle) with decent weatherproofing (gortex). About 100 I think.

Just an aside about real carbon protection... not a good idea. I think all "carbon" protection on gloves is "carbon-look" plastic - at least I hope it is. In case of a heavy impact, if real carbon, it's gonna splinter into a gazillion shards and eff you up.

Got some latex gloves from the motor factors. Gonna give them a try, and liners. Went into premier today for glove liners. They didn't have any but had a nice Zephyr750 for sale, very tempting.

Excuse the mistake Nimmy. Red horns. Do they have lights in them?
