Item # AAS002N

The winter cyclist's vanguard.

In the war on winter, your hands are the far-flung outpost in the frozen north: under-manned, under-supplied, and under perpetual siege by cold, wet, and wind. Send in the cavalry to relieve your beleaguered digits with the Assos bonkaGlove_evo7.

To play that cavalry metaphor out a bit more, the fact that this is Assos means that the bonkaGlove_evo7 is to typical winter gloves as the M3 Bradley is to Napoleonic Hussars. The shell is airBlock material with a DWR treatment, so it repels wind and water like the Bradley repels small arms fire so the multi-density insulation can do its job.

The stretchy neoprene cuff performs an admirable rear guard action to keep the enemy from harassing your supply lines — er — wrists between glove and jacket cuff. The palm is abrasion-resistant and incorporates grippy detailing to provide constant and accurate field intelligence regarding the lay of your handlebars.

The Assos bonkaGlove_evo7 is available in six sizes ranging from X-Small to XLG in the color Black Volkanga.

Don't live up to description

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These gloves aren't bad; I like the dexterity allowed, and the fit. And with the shell gloves, they make a pretty good combo (still not quite as good as the description). Together, they'll get you down to about freezing, wet or dry; maybe a few degrees below, if it's dry.

By themselves? They aren't wind- or cold-resistant enough.

And 21F? I wouldn't try anywhere close to that (I have heavy mittens for those temperatures). Not even with liners underneath.

The Assos box these gloves come in reads -6° to 8°C and 21° to 46°F. The gloves read 0° to 8°C and 32° to 46°F. My fingers were cold at 35° to 37°F. I do not mind paying for Assos if it stands up to their reputation but at $148 these gloves are NOT worth it. I have a pair of Assos earlyWinterGlove_S7 XLG and they fit while these gloves run small in the same XLG size. This was a brand new model of winter glove 12/2014 replacing the fuguGloves_S7.



I would suggest you look at Giordana, Castelli or GORE gloves for the same quality and half the price.
