Lightweight and windproof, Pearl's Cyclones are the gloves to keep handy for those chilly rides. They offer a sweet combo of Comfort Bridge Gel padding on the Clarino synthetic leather palms and Elite Softshell fabric on the back to keep the wind and water at bay. Plus, the Velcro cuffs keep the elements out and the whole glove is anatomically shaped for a natural fit. There are also microfleece thumbs for wiping your face.
I ride a Recumbent Trike and my hand don't do much of anything, so it is real hard for them to stay warm - I have silk liners and 'GAVIA' OP's and these are no warmer for me - they do seem to cut-down the wind a little better, but ...
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
These glove are not for super cold, but should be good to mid to low 40's. They are comfortable and fit nicely up under your sleeves. There are some seems that you can feel, but overall the fit is very good. They have been a workhorse for my colder riding.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
