These gloves get five stars because they keep me riding in the winter cold. I've tested in the extreme weather up McKenzie Pass during heavy rain and snow. These are very good gloves for cold weather riding. The windproof quality is excellent. Light precipitation rolls off. If you are looking for a waterproof glove Assos sells one for over two hundred dollars. The neoprene cuff integrates over the Ultraz jacket cuff keeping the cold from creeping in. Easily able to shift the Di2, computer and phone electronics take more effort due to the bulk. The outer shell is very durable. The gloves have a nice amount of insulation to give the gloves loft for heat retention and protection during the descents. There is a small soft section on the index for a nose wipe. If it is cold outside, 30s-50 F, I am wearing these gloves while riding.
Iï¿½ve had many gloves, and suffer from cold extremities. These are the best Iï¿½ve used for below 50. Much better than Castelliï¿½s I bought and sold. In fairness, Iï¿½m an older rider, and struggle in the cold. Assos rarely lets me down.
The sale price was a good deal but I had to return the gloves. I purchased size M according to the sizing chart bu t the fit was too tight in the wrist = hard to get on but the fingers were too long. They might work for you.
I've tried a lot of winter cycling gloves over the years and never been satisfied, mainly because too much sweat builds up in the gloves and then my hands get cold. These gloves do a good job of wicking moisture out and keeping my hands warm.
If you can stomach the price or have a discount on them... they are likely some of the best gloves out there for colder days in the PNW. High quality, comfortable, warm, dry - what more can you ask for?
