"So yesterday I had that 240 mile round trip to make in really cold conditions: so cold, in fact, that one the return journey, the gritters were out. To make the journey tolerable, I'd added a pair of proper winter gloves to my wardrobe: British Motorcycle Gear Thermosport winter gloves - these are leather with Kevlar knuckle protectors, extra leather and abrasion resistance on the palms, Thinsulate (to keep the heat in) and Porelle lining (breathable but waterproof) in case of rain. This was the first time I'd worn them, so they still need to soften up, but they worked really well". British Bike Blog.
Carbon fiber protectors are double-stitched into the knuckles and several panels of the material are used to likewise protect the finger joints. Durable protective padding on the Thermosport is also located on the gauntlet to protect the delicate wrist bones from injury. An elastic section on the top of the shell and a hook-and-loop strap on the underside allows the glove to be securely held to the hands. The gauntlet of the Thermosport is about middle of the road in length, so there may be some issues with the bulkier jacket cuffs; wearing it under the sleeve is simple by comparison. However, it does have its own hook-and-loop adjustment strap to keep any cold air or moisture from slipping inside.
An interesting benefit of choosing the Thermosport is that the sizing seems spot on with these mitts. Donning them and the wrapping your now gloved hands around the grips gives you the sensation of wearing a purpose-built bit of kit which allows you to use the controls without difficulty. With winter gloves this can be a problem as the padding can get in the way of flexibility. The Thermosport, though, is not so bad in this area. And the pre-curved shape of the design certainly helps alleviate any worries here.
The inside of the Thermosport is plush and should keep your hands comfortable on even long-distance rides. Of course, it being a winter glove, it also manages to keep your hands and fingers warm and dry, up to and including when the weather throws you 40F and heavy rain. The padding and liners do their job well without getting in the way accessing the handlebar controls, as promised. In fact, given the great insulation and freedom of movement, you could almost forget you are wearing winter gloves – almost. BMG retails the Thermosport for US$79. The BMG Thermosport is perhaps the most race-inspired and protective winter glove that you can buy at this price level, yet it works like it costs more than twice as much! http://www.motorcycleglovereviews.com/BMG-Thermosport-Gloves-Review.php .
