Dont believe you

I can tell you that no glove I have ever worn keeps my hands from going numb apart from the Gerbings heated glove but of course that comes off your battery, without a heated glove all the above is rubbish, riding in 5-6 degrees or less at 50mph+ and all I feel is pain after 10 minutes.

I agree with the "disagree"

I agree with Carlosoul. From 0 to 4C, no glove will be warm enough. Only heated gloves will do. Although I do use the Alpinestars 365, I have heated grips and use thin glove liners. That does the trick.

cold hands

Hand guards help keep some of the wind blast off, but look abit silly on anything other than trail bikes. heated grips are ace but can still leave the tips of your fingers cold. you could try bar muffs(but then you might look like your grandad!). I`ve tried all sorts of things over the years but nothing beats heated gloves.

Winter gloves?

Er are half of these actually winter gloves???

Although you might look a grandad (depending on your bike) muffs, heated grips and glove liners have kept my hand toastie down to about -15 degrees (estimated with wind chill) quite happily. I'd rather look like grandad and have warm hands, and muffs can be taken off relatively easily.

Heated grips are good but on their own wind chill still cuts through, the alternative is as the others have said heated gloves.

And at £89.99 for the held gloves I'd rather spend the money on heated grips. No glove should cost that much, IT'S A GLOVE!!!! And it gets colder than 0 degrees so by your own admission you'd be paying £90 for gloves that don't keep you warm. Why would you???

All rubbish

I totally agree with Carlosoul. I've been riding for 30 years and the only glove to keep my hands warm are my Gerbings. Heated gloves are the best. Heated grips are OK, but gloves are better. If you ride in the winter, buy some. They literally take 5 minutes to instal and are brilliant.

then need to testproper winter gloves

the tester is rubber to find gloves for winter that only go down to 0.c.  as  in winter it be getting down -10 if its bad as my new gloves spada enforcers are not the best even tho the shop said they were winter gloves. i be getting heatted gloves next and the gloves they have listed would work better for early summer.

Gerbings rule!

Another heated glove rant from me... but only because I've just got in to work after a 40 mile ride in 2°C - my hands were so hot that my thumb felt like it was getting singed. Its worth noting that this is a definite psychological side effect to having hot hands - if your extremities get cold, you feel colder all over.
